When starting a blog there are so many things to think about: What will I call this masterpiece? Who will be my audience? Who will play me in the rom-com when Hollywood inevitably comes a-knockin’?? Stuff like that.
If you’re starting out late like me, it can be difficult to even find a name for your little blog ’cause all the good ones are taken!! You’d be surprised how many people want to be “Milfapalooza.”
That was my first setback. I had to really think about this, y’all. Who am I? What really represents me? Here are some name/ideas I kicked around for my baby:
Bitch Said What?!
Big Boob Bloggin’
Tits On A Platter
More On Me
Then I remembered something my good friend Donald Trump told me. He said, “Rach, (we are close) always use a cream rinse to tame split ends, and always put your name on your blog.” “It’s douchey, but it works.”
Wait, did he say “blog” or “buildings”? The details don’t really matter. I needed my name in the name. That much I knew, you know? I started brainstorming again.
Rachael Slurs- This one I love because it sounds like “racial slurs.” !! Get it? Effing hilarious, right? Because I drink a lot! Oh.. ok, so it might anger some minorities (or majorities, depending on where you live) and that would lead to..
Rachael Tension- Can I fucking help it if my name sounds like “racial”?? Damn. Lighten up. Jeeze.
Anyhoo, I had to move on to something positive, something feel-good. Let’s see..
Rach For The Stars! (that will definitely be the name of my variety show)
Rach For The Sky! (what am I, a damn cowgirl now?)
Rach For The Motherfuckin’ Win! (or RFMFW! for short)
and so on…
In the end, I chose “RachRiot” because it connotes several things that appeal to me. Webster defines the term “riot” this way:
“A wild and turbulent public disturbance” (Um, yes I’m a fan of that.)
“A lavish display or enjoyment” (Have you seen me eat?)
“A very amusing thing or person” (Meh. Two out of three ain’t bad)
Also because it’s a noun and a verb AND a colloquialism! And who doesn’t love a colloquialism?!
No one, that’s who.
