Let’s Try This Again…

3 Feb

Okay. Last time I proposed some name options on here for my new writing venture, I was completely shot down… and rightfully so, all those options lacked any ounce of creativity and well, kind of sucked.

So I’ve done some brainstorming and asking around for other’s input and thoughts and now have a new round of business names that I’m putting forward to my blog readers for their opinions. Please kind in mind that some of these names are variations of names that I’ve had to adapt due to domain name availability. Also, whichever name I go with will be supported by a descriptive and appealing tagline to provide more context to the business name. Alright, here it goes…

This first group of options use the word ‘Reed’ in the title which is another word for ‘Pen’ which can also mean ‘to write’…

Reed-On Creative

Reed-On Communications

Reed Comp Communications

Reed Comp Creative

Reed Originals

These next few options use ‘Blue Pencil’ in the name, which is another phrase for editing.

Blue Pencil Communications

Blue Pencil Concepts

Blue Pencil Creative

These next two options use ‘Quill Driver’ in the name, which is another phrase for writing.

Quill Driver Creative
Quill Driver Communications

A few other options.

Drop A Kite Communications (‘Drop A Kite’ is synonymous with ‘correspond’ or ‘to communicate in writing’)

Feather Agent (‘Feather’ is another word for ‘pen’ and I just like feathers)

Born Concepts (because ‘Born’ is my last name)

 

So please let the opinions flow and if any of these names inspire another option, by all means, please share it. Thanks for reading and offering your insights – I really do appreciate it!

It’s Official

21 Dec

From now on, when people ask me what I do, I tell them that I’m a freelance copywriter and editor. I have to admit, I really like telling people this. I feel like the word ‘freelance’ is so fancy and official. But in reality, nothing has changed. I still write and edit things, it’s just that now, I have a title. And I kinda like titles. Especially this one as this title has been about a year in the making. I’ve known for quite some time now that writing in some capacity is something that I’d like to do, but I haven’t had the confidence to do anything about it. And it wasn’t until recently, after receiving some affirming feedback from a few people, that I’ve really believed that this is something I can do. And I’m excited!

I currently have one client and yes, it still counts even though it’s the marketing company that I used to be employed with. They approached me about two months ago to write and edit their company magazine and the timing could not have been more perfect. God blows me away sometimes (it would be all the time if I paid closer attention).

My goal is to maintain a full-time writing work load meaning that I’m in the market for more clients. Over the next few months I will be having a logo created, launching a website (or a blog depending on resources) and getting business cards made. In the meantime, I need to settle on a name for my new endeavor and I’m hoping that whoever reads this will be willing to offer their opinion and/or suggestions. I’m pretty sure I’m going to stick with my name (Jamie Born) as the main title with a sub-name providing a description of what I do. But if someone has a brilliant suggestion, I may just have to change my mind. And if anyone has a great idea for a tagline, feel free to fire it my way :)¬†Anyways, here are the options I’ve come up with so far:

Jamie Born Communications

Jamie Born Copy & Editorial

Jamie Born Copywriting

Jamie Born Copy

Jamie Born Copywriting & Editing

Jamie Born Copywriting & Editorial

Jamie Born I Write Things

Jamie Born I Write & Edit Things

Thoughts? Suggestions? Opinions? I’d love to hear it.

And, if you randomly (or not randomly) came across this blog post and are in need of writing and/or editing services, send me an email about what you’re looking for and we can go from there (and I can send some samples).

Thanks!

Jamie
