Struggling to Select a Specific Blog Name

I’m still a newbie when it comes to blogging, but learning quite a bit each day.  One area I’m struggling with is deciding on a specific blog name.

Some of my random thoughts while trying to come up with one…

  • Journal Blog is an oxymoron…right?!?!  I need to change this sooon!
  • Ok, Let’s see what the thesaurus comes up with for “journal”…no help there
  • Hmm…how about thinking about some of my favorite poems…Crystaleyes Rises…nah!  Phenomenal Crystaleyes…umm…no!  Road Wandered by Crystaleyes…not liking the “by” part, but “road wandered” doesn’t sound so bad
  • How about playing with book titles…Voyage with Crystaleyes, Lord of the Crystaleyes, Heart of Crystaleyes…hmmm…now that is more like it. Their Eyes Were Watching Crystaleyes…hmmm…a lot of eyes going on there…ehhh…not for me
  • How about scrapping Crystaleyes…ok, now I need a fresh, new name…
  • How about using a phoenix which represents my life…quick Google search and looks like I’m not the first one with that bright idea…I do like Phoenix Rises though…I bet it’s taken already…whooohooo, nope it’s not taken…I’m not sure though…I want something I love, something I don’t want to change
  • wait…can I change my blog name, but keep all my posts?  I better check on that!
  • Forget the healthy eating I’ll take a Nutter Butter
  • How about A Nutter Blog…or Just a Nutter Blog…hahaha…that’s cute, but still not for me
  • Collecting Beautiful Moments…Crystal’s Beautiful Moments…Collector of Beautiful Moments…

Comment:  How did you decide on your blog name?  Did you change your name at any point?  Any suggestions for me?
