i’ve had this problem! It is such a waste! My first like 4 names for a blog were taken. I had to really get creative !

Most e-mail names are also taken which blows!

Yes you said it! Same issue with my wedding blog! For our wedding website we were lucky enough to get his first and my first.com but for my wedding website every possible combination of bliss was taken! Many of them just go to those stupid sites that have no purpose..

I think that since Blogger is free, that a certain amout of time inactive should automatically free up that name. Its not fair to the people who actually want to blog!!

Just keep trying, maybe something that is more unique to you.

I just want to say when you said the blog title you were thinking about, I was a little bit glad for you, that it WAS taken, because IMO when you say my first, or his first, it is almost implyng that there will be a next or a second. I have been married before, but I remember once when I was married years ago my Mother-In-Law then, introduced me to someone as “This is Pauls first wife, Sandra” at the time, I felt like it was a slap in the face, because it sounded like she was implying that there would be other wives following me. I am certain you were not intending it to sound that way, but just be aware that some peoples minds might go there.

Mr. Tattoo says people buy up domain names to sell them to people who want them. I wanted to upgrade on Blogger and instead of using myblogname.blogspot.com I wanted to use my blogname.com (only $10 to register) but it was taken. I went to the site and the Go Daddy website came up. It’s just sitting there.

But Go Daddy will try to help you buy it from the owner for just $69.99 for the service! So for $69.99 plus whatever the buyer wants, you can have your ideal name. Puh-lease. Why can’t I just contact the owner directly!?

@Roux: I know it sucks! Is there anyway to message the other to see if they can give you the ownership of it? Maybe if you comment on the post it might send them an email or something.

@SandyThePoet: I think the OP ment her first name and his first name, not that they were each other’s first partner, though I’m sorry your ex-MIL implied that at the time.
