What’s the inspiration behind your blog name? How did you come up with it?

BISC Vol.14 Group 1 Authors

TRACY | USA | Swaybeauty
My blog name came about during a discussion I was having with my husband. Beauty wise I had stopped listening to everyone else and started doing what was right for me.  He suggested I call it Tracy’s Way but I remember thinking that that sounded too egotistical so he came up with sway beauty which was play on words of tracysway. It’s fascinating how a person can be swayed into purchasing a product simply based on who the “spokesperson” was and the word “Sway” always came to mind after having read a blog post or watched a YouTube video.

DEE | Canada | How Does Dee Do It
Honestly – it was the first name that popped into my head when I thought of creating my blog. I thought it was catchy and conveyed how I do things (on the makeup and fitness side of the house). I did however decide later that I wanted a separate fitness blog (which I have now (www.fitchickswithlipsticks.com) with Mo from MoMakeUpMobeauty), but for HDDI, that’s the story right there :) Short one :))

SUNNY | Belgium | Mostly Sunny Blog
The name of my blog is a total accident. I actually never intended to go this far with the blog, nor did I mean to make it a beauty blog. I just got bored one Sunday afternoon and decided to create a little online space to write about a little bit of everything, hence the wordplay of my own name! Mostly Sunny turned into a beauty blog because I realized I have the most passion for this subject, plus I have almost nobody in my real life to share it with.

ANNE | Germany | Linda, Libra, Loca
Choosing a blog name was a lot harder than writing the first few posts, and it was what took longest to decide on. Finally I figured it should hint what I was writing about while still being distinguishable from all the blogs carrying “Makeup” or “Beauty” in their title. So I settled for Spanish and picked: “Linda” (as in pretty, representing makeup), “Libra” (as in free, representing travel) and “Loca” (as in crazy, representing life with a newborn).

Disclaimer: I know that “Libra” is the wrong translation, but it sounds much better that way.

SHEILA | Canada | Maddy Loves
I used to be hosted on Blogger under the name Mademoiselle Loves Beauty. It was super long, and then when I switched over to WordPress, I shortened it to Maddy Loves. Although, I get my name mistaken for Maddy all the time now, so sometimes I just go by Maddy as my online name. It worked out!

JAA | Thailand | Hello Jaa
I registered HelloJaa.com long before I turned it into a beauty blog and that’s why it doesn’t relate to makeup or beauty. I wanted to put my name somewhere in there because I learned that you are less likely to get bored of your domain name if it has your name in it! Seems to work for me. :) Then I added “Hello” because it’s such a common and friendly word, not to mention the first word you say to someone you’ve never met before. It just sounds so fitting for me. :)
