    Hi

    I'm stuck between deciding on going on a branded domain or using my name.

    I want to start writing, like writing some content that includes humor etc but there are so many sites around that do that so I'm not looking to make it like the next "9gag" or something but rather show-off my writing.

    I of course want to monetize it with private ads and also build a name and recognition for myself. Also I'm not going to be creating different social media accounts, I'm going to use my personal accounts

    Also this isn't my main career, I'm studying so its like just hobby but I would love to do this rather than what I'm studying, so hoping to get recognized and write for major newspapers in my country.

    What's your take on this?

    Questions:

    1. Did you already register your name as a domain?
    2. Do you have a good name?

    I think everyone should register their name even if they're just going to park it. If your name doesn't sound nice, I mean, maybe your name is Doug Pussman or something, it would be better to go with a branded name and then put "by Doug Pussman" after it so it's consistent with your social media etc.
