Your post was fine; a bit ... weird, asking for domain name suggestions (doesn't that depend on what you want to call your blog, which in turn will depend on the type of writing you'll want to do, etc?), but not breaking any rules. You got a reply, however, by "larawalker2", which was clear and useless spam. So that post was flagged for review by a moderator. Nothing to do with you. :)

You need to be a little creative to come up with a domain name that is available and not taken. You can use different hosting companies to get ideas without paying until you buy a domain name. Some of the popular companies are godaddy, hostgator, or namecheap. you can google to find more. How it would work is to type in a preferred name to see if it is available. If not, there may be suggested alternatives which you might like to use. Sometimes they will show sites that are taken and willing to be sold. These are usually expensive and not worth it. I would not recommend buying those. You should be able to get a domain for around $10 USD per year. Sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less. If the suggested alternatives are not satisfactory, try another name (try to be creative), but be sure it is relevant to your blog subject which in this case is traveling. Good luck!

I have started a blog using Wordpress and registered the domain name as Kimosabetraveller. You can buy a domain name quite cheaply and I think it should reflect either who you are or what you are doing.

If you have some ideas about what you want to do, you can use the google adwords keyword planner tool. You have to have an account, but you can type in different words you are thinking of using to get more ideas.

Or you could just make a long list of travel things that are important to you or describe you and then pick the best one?

Hope that helps!
