Still Stuck on a Blog Name?

If you haven't chosen a name yet and are still stuck on that step, I recommend choosing your given name or a variation of your name/nickname (example: "JessicaSmith.com” or "TipsFromJessica.com”). Remember, you don't want to stall too much on this step and never start a blog because of it.
