So it’s Day Two of Blogging 101. Take control of your Title and Tagline. I
guess when it comes to my Title, it is usually a haphazard thing. Gosh I have written a page, now what am I going to call it?
I recently registered my business name, which reflects how I would like my business and writing to go = Camera Pen Travel. I would really enjoy just locking up the house, farming out the fish and the puppy and heading out on the highway for destinations unknown. That sounds a bit romantic doesn’t it? Destinations unknown!
I recently started traveling by myself. My travels aren’t too adventurous yet. Well I did have one almighty adventure. I also take small road trips up the Hume Highway to my sister’s house – its only a four hour trip, not too hard to do as the Hume Highway is a nice highway to travel on, there are toilet stops and service stations along the way.
An adventurous trip is one taken with perils along the way. Like no toilets, no running water, (perils did I say, more like luxuries) no food stops, petrol stations few and far between. Wow I digress!
Titles and taglines, concentrate Cassie.
I consider an adventure to be a trip to the bush or forest, camping, close to a river, no showers or baths, dip in the river for a wash, cooking over an open fire (or the barbecue you’ve taken along), gathering fire wood, stoking up the fire, camping in a tent, braving the elements.
Title – what’s in a name? Who said that? Shakespeare? A rose by any other name smells as sweet.
My Title should reflect what my blog is about. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t. I do try to match Title with content.
Taglines – what is a tagline. Is that like a category?
I’m reading Customizer on WordPress as I try to work on Assignment Two of Blogging 101. Multitasking, reading, writing and drinking red wine.
Custom Header Image, Widgets, it all sounds like a foreign language at the
moment. I am sure that as time goes on, it will all become easier for me to
understand and to apply to my posts. I hope so.
One of the suggestions for the Title and Tagline was to:
“Try listing adjectives that describe your personality, and play around with the words until you can tweak them into a name that’s catchy but uniquely “you.” Puns always work well. Start with certain common phrases, songs, and literary titles, and then mix the words up. Or use your own name in a clever way.”
I think that I have already done that. Adjectives which describe my personality – well not so much my personality as my passions – camera pen travel – reflects three of my passions. Photography, writing and travel. I’m not sure if this post reflects the theme of Blogging 101 – all I do know is that I enjoy writing and I hope that if you are reading my blog, that you also enjoy my blogs. I can be a little bit “all over the place” so sometimes my thoughts and writing reflect that.
