My daughter (12) is going to be starting her own blog site shortly. She loves writing short stories so this is going to be a way she can present these on the web - also the odd game review may appear and various diary musings.

But what name can we choose. I am aiming to set this up on blogger http://www.blogger.com/home - but any ideas for the blogsite name? All the ones we come up with seem fairly lame.

In addition if anyone has done a blog site and has any tips etc on starting up these would be appretiated smile

Here's mine: So Yummy. It was something my daughter used to say years ago.

If I were you, I might go with [daughter's name]'s Blog.

Very original.

So Yummy is an excellent name frown She doesn't like the idea of using her nickname or name frown

My thought was growing pains but she doesn't like that  crybaby

i've been contemplating starting one to ignore, and coming up with a name worth remembering is difficult. 

any advice for a good blog site?

I think for us novices

http://www.blogger.com

Seems as good as any, free, easy to use and provides a suitable url as well as linking to search engines etc.

At the moment the name we're on is cartoon-hero, but it may change smile

Yup, blogger is a good site for the novices.  They have a relatively great service and feature set that is not too hard for anyone to learn.  As to the name how about naming it after one of her short story characters?  One thing I also caution is to closely control the email/comment (depending on how old she is).  You might want the email to go to you and/or close the comment section (or monitor it).

Having tried both Blogger and Wordpress I'm happy with Wordpress.  It's really easy, frequently updated and... really easy.   And free!

If it's for her short stories, why not call it "snippets"?
