There are a lot of fun blogs on Tumblr that use way out names to establish a brand for themselves. But this doesn’t mean you can’t use your own name or a common sounding one to create an entertaining site.
As you can see from the following Tumblogs, none of them are particularly amusing (unless you know the character beforehand):
- Dave Holmes (http://daveholmes.tumblr.com/)
- Rob Huebel (http://robhuebel.com/)
- Dan Meth (http://danmeth.com/)
- Delbert Shoopman (http://delbertshoopman.tumblr.com/)
- Tom Oatmeal (http://tomoatmeal.com/)
- Dan Harmon (http://danharmon.tumblr.com/)
- Tess Lynch (http://tesslynch.tumblr.com/)
- Nick Holmes (http://nickholmes.tumblr.com/)
- Julia Segal (http://juliasegal.tumblr.com/)
So if you’re not particularly witty, don’t like pretentiously silly blog names or just want something that gives you room to cover a variety topics in the future rather than being limited to your current fascination with Kim Jong Il Looking At Things (http://kimjongillookingatthings.tumblr.com/), then consider using your own name, a pen name or even make up a cool name to be your blog’s brand.
