My second garden blog, Dotty Plants Journal is a blog where I keep an unexciting record of daily events in the garden and expect little following. Before it was Dotty Plants it was Dotty Pants, a name taken from a sales receipt for pajama bottoms. I stopped posting to Dotty Pants for lack of inspiration. After a bad experience in which spam bots stole a Blogspot blog I deleted and used it for ads for libido pills and topless models, I never delete a blog. I just recycled Dotty Pants by adding a letter to Pants , adding 'Journal' and leaving the URL as is.
What about your Blog Name? Is your name your brand, or your pet's name? Does it reflect where you garden? Does funny and weird = Memorable? Did you give it a lot of thought or just grab something?
There is a new Poll on the Sidebar. It has to do with Blog Content. Is your garden the only subject about which you blog? Please check all that apply.
