A Blog By Any Other Name

How important is a blog’s name?  It could make all the difference between attracting potential followers and being passed by with nothing more than a click and a yawn.  Our Banana Moments follows several hundred different blogs and each was initially chosen based on their intriguing names.  Of course, a striking name is only the beginning.  While a riveting name may lure potential followers, equally compelling content will keep them coming back.  Here are 15 blogs we follow with provocative monikers and content to match.  Which blogs with catchy names do you follow?

                           Bad Ass Chicks That Bite
                           Just add whine.....
                           Christians... Criminals ... and Chickens

  2. Yeah, well, I win for having the longest blog name ever...........

  3. TwoSucculentSisters is a weird kinda name, too. I've been thinking about renaming the blog since my sister hasn't been blogging for a year, but thinking of a blog name is daunting. I like your name. It's intriguing. My daughter is an RN also - psyche nursing. she's got plenty of tales to tell. :)
    Best wishes. Linda

    Love it!

    Smiles from,

  16. @WordsAndPen, you are welcomed to comment on any site you like. Your blog name is perfect and catchy enough to get me to your blog. Honestly, I don't push this site, I only push the main website. I have no idea how people are finding me here.
