Before I lost the old moxee and started fresh, I had many posts aimed to help creative bloggers. There were free fonts, wordpress tutorials, and all sorts of fun things … all of which are gone now. BUT – you know what? I’m still okay with it. Starting fresh was no big thang! Yesterday, I mentioned that I would be writing more on moxee. SO, the newest feature is for you guys, bloggers. I’m hoping to cover anything you’d like to know, from starting a blog to coding one. There’s so much in between and I’m excited to get started:
For my first topic, I thought I’d start from the beginning. I know tons of people out there who would love to start a blog, but get nervous about it as soon as they have to come up with a name. And I get it, it’s a pretty scary thing having to come up with something that you have to look at every day. Yikes!
Before I came up with the name moxee, all I had written down were words like “creative, bold, and strong.” These were things I wanted the blog to portray. And I’m not going to lie, moxee wasn’t an overnight “aha” moment for me. I took several days of jotting down words, crossing things off, and using a thesaurus endlessly.
Although there are many theories and ways you can come up with a new name, I’m just going to cover one of my favorites. I like to call it the thesaurus game.
Get out a piece of paper or journal and begin jotting down words and phrases that you either A. really like, or B. think portray what your blog will be about. Heck, do both! Next, take those words and enter them into an online thesaurus. You’ll instantly get hundreds of words that relate to what you already like. GOLD! Plus, you can keep clicking through to new sets of words. It’s like magic.
If you look at the chart above, I made a very cheesy example of words I picked out from looking up “happy.” Once you have a good solid list of words, start combining things, crossing off the bad ones, or even mixe up spelling. For example, moxee isn’t correct, is it? Moxie was my inspiration!! You can even start using a different language. Don’t quite like the word “quaint?” Okay, then how to you say it in French? Spanish? In no time, you’ll get somewhere, I promise! These sorts of things take time and rarely come at an instant. Have patience and you’ll find the perfect solution for YOU!
SO, what other things would you guys like me to post about? I’m open at this point to whatever you’d really like to hear about. Tell me!
