    I'm working on a project and I'm thinking about domain. I know many people brand now their name on the internet to find some jobs as freelancer (ex. writer) so I think making a domain with my name would be good to get known by people or make a new domain (not my real name) and a logo to get known on the internet and social networks..

    Which is the best way? Use my name as domain name or logo+domain (not my name)?

    I think a good way would be to make a new domain not using my real name, and post articles and my BIO in contact page, also buy another .info domain with my real name and post my CV and projects? Would this be a good Idea? (also I'd need to make one website in my first language and another one with same articles in english language to reach all the world)

    I think Branding our name is a good way now to get known as freelancers on the internet..

    Name probably works best for a freelancer, but pair it with a brand. E.g. Erika Napoletano, Redhead Writing. The brand is even more important if you have a common name.

    I've seen many Internet Marketers (ex. http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/) who use their names as domain and create a logo with their name as freelance/IM person. This should be a good way to go.

    I'd like to use my name as freelancer in one language and in english language, but I should use two different domains and translate the articles? It doesn't seem easy.. I should find a better solution.
