Blog names about dating
The problem is that when you have a post that is ‘timeless’ (ie it doesn’t really date because the tips you give or the principles that you talk about will always apply) a date can act as a distraction to your reader.
They arrive at the post and see that it was written in 2006 and a little warning bell goes off in their mind that what they are reading is not ‘current’.
If I write a post that needs to be anchored to a point of time I will usually add it to the title of the post.
There are more than just the two options open to bloggers when it comes to adding or removing dates from posts.
To find the perfect name, brainstorm some ideas that capture the subject, tone, and vision of your blog, then refine them to appeal to your audience.
While cameras are changing the basic principles of photography are not (or are changing a lot more slowly).
In short – the posts have more of a timeless and evergreen quality and dates would only serve to distract readers from the content itself.
This is useful to readers wanting to make a judgment on how relevant the post is for them at any point of time.
It signals to them that a post is current or recent when the date signals that it was written within the last weeks and signals to them that a post could be dated when the date is years back.
