It’s a girl!

April 10, 2008

At last, this blog is born. I have been ruminating over getting a blog for a while and actually lost sleep over what it’s title is going to be. I thought about what it could be about. What else but what occupies a lot of my time – web marketing – specifically viral marketing and backlinking, writing, God, and life.

I was literally up all night thinking of a blog title. By no means is this a simple feat. The blogosphere is inhabited by gazillions of blogs, and to stand out is like trying to blow into cold air and make huge clouds. I opted for the simple title — Wonder Abby. Because I’m Abby and I wonder. Haha.

Some of the titles that actually crossed my mind is

The Web Marketing Junkie. I actually find an abandoned blog with the same title. So, that’s not an option.

Confessions of a Web Marketing Junkie. Really, just about everybody is confessing these days.

The Abby Copuyoc — This would be funny because most people don’t really know who Abby Copuyoc is. It’s just nice to have “the” before my name. Makes me feel important.

The Abby — same concept.

Intern-alizations. I started out in Web Marketing as an Intern, and I thought it would be funny. After all, life is a big internship, and when we die we know when we get the job. It’s also a whiplash to this boss I had kept on calling me “intern” when he hired me as an assistant. You challenged me though, I’ll never forget you.

The Web Marketing Intern — same concept. I have been in web marketing for quite some time now though and have learned a lot, so I don’t want to be forever tagged as the Intern. Just some serious self-deprecation going on here.

Simply Abby. Simply boring.

Web Two Point – “Oh”. Play of words. But, what’s the point?

I caught a cold – a play on the idea of viral marketing. Kinda cheesy.

The missing link — since I deal mostly with links. But this kind of narrows the blog down into links, and I don’t want that.

That’s about the list that played in mind for 2 hours. I woke up in the morning and punched in “blog titles” in google and I found that blog titles really do make a huge difference. I don’t know if it’s normal to lose sleep over it, but it’s probably normal to lose traffic over it.

Here’s an interesting article:

What do you call your blog?

Apparently, I’m not the only one who lost sleep over the matter. Blog titles are like headlines for news reports. It may or may dictate the length of stay of your reader, or even if they stay at all. I imagine that my blog title will still change. I cannot predict the flow of this blog.

If you have any suggestions for blog title improvements, let me know!

I am excited about this blog. There you go!

Talk to you soon. \
