Help with a more creative title for the blog page
Last Update: May 6, 2019
I know not everyone is a fan of the word 'blog' or 'blog roll', though in terms of site navigation and usability it's a word we recognise and actively look for on a site's menu if we know we wish to read posts. For me on the whole however, it has connotations of personal blogs, - (like this one), or connotations of actual personal blogs on the web, rather than professional websites and brands, even though brands have them and most still refer to their posts section as the 'blog'.
I feel I want something different for this site though. I'm loathe to call my posts page 'Blog', or even 'Posts/Latest Posts' on this partcular site. I want something all encompassing but catchier, more creative, more professional-sounding, but still very obviously 'the blog roll', so as not to confuse visitors.
I'm not sure how true or easy this is but I believe you can incorporate more than one blog roll on a website, though not sure if that's theme or plugin dependent, or what. Thinking about the content, it will be 'news & reviews', articles, thoughts/opinions, alerts (for new products), featured products, featured local businesses, general info posts about aspects of the niche, etc. It may be that I have separate pages for one or two of these eventually, but certainly while the site is new and lacking sufficient content for that, then the 'blog roll' title needs to cover all of that.
So far I thought;
'Information' - (but naah, the whole site is full of information, so that doesn't make sense, esp. as it's a kind of directory site),
'Articles' - (about what? Well, all of the things above.. )
'Featured' - (could be...)
'Opinion' - (since there will be reviews (eventually), and I'm likely to be expressing some level of opinion - though trying to make this site less personal), but also this is where all the comments and 'discussion' from readers will be, this could make sense, - thought it doesn't encompass 'alerts' to new products, or featured local businesses very well)
I want something catchy, classy, brandable, friendly and professional. Something clever.
If you have any ideas or opinions please let me know.
Are you making good use of categories? https://marionblackonline.com/categories-vs-tags/
Hi Marion, not yet, though I plan to. I know you're not supposed to have more than 7-10 categories in all, last I heard, so I'm working on those to make them work for me and the users.
