    Hey guys! I am new on here, but have made use of the wealth of information and have found myself checking the site daily now. I am a proud owner of a 2008 Prius (Black, Package 2), and I have decided to devote a blog to it. It will mostly be a photo blog, detailing the cars features, capabilities, places it goes, putting people in it, holding cargo, etc. and I will leave room for people to post their own photos. I.E. If I do a post on Towing, it will have a picture of mine and a quick description of the adventure etc, and the people commenting will be allowed to respond with their own stories and photos. Maybe this seems redundant because we have this great forum here, but my emphasis is more on photo documentation.

    And alas, I'm stumped. I have designed the thing, written a few posts and have some photos, but what shall I call it?

    I will be using blogspot.com as the host, and if it gets big I will buy a website for it, so it doesn't have to be htttp://www.whateverInameit.blogspot.com, but a lot of the simple ones I thought of were taken priusblog, Prius, ToyotaPrius, etc.

    I want it to be something fun and catchy, but something people can remember. Any suggestions? And no, my car doesn't have a name (yet!).

    Winner gets a big thank you and their username and photo of their car on my first post!

    so the web log is about the car? Not about your life the family or even a dog?

    I have two Prii at home but the wife and greyhound are still first!

    well most of the time anyway!

    Yes, I'd like to think my boyfriend and I would make a great novel if both of our lives were written out on a page, and pictures of the Chihuahua are great, but where does it get us?

    Photos of a Prius towing, or having 5 people seated comfortably could show someone (who thought they needed a bigger car) the real capabilities of the car that you can't see in the dealership brochure.

    And I will include details about how it satisfy's both a man and woman's needs in a car (and yes, a Chihuahua's).

    if you are going to write; write about your passion. Passion for your BF, or dog, or Prius, or life itself.

    It all blends together to make the interesting quilt that is you.

    If your new Prius is going to be the center of the blog, then you could make it:
    • Pri-eminence, or
    • ePri-center, or
    • Pri-essence (my favorite)

    Hmm, I guess you are not getting my point. There are many topics I could blog about, or I could blog about them all in one (like you insist I do, ha). But as interesting as my life may be, most people are not searching the internet for general blogs, they are searching with specific topics.

    And if people want to see my dog and how great my life is they can "Aww" about it all they want, and just because I devote a website to my car does not mean in any way that I don't value my family more than it. But one of the things that I care about, that is so much bigger than just my family, is that I sincerely believe that cars like the Prius will change how people drive, live, etc. It is something concrete that I can put in pictures.

    I will include links to my personal website (I am a musician/sound engineer) and to my Flickr account for people who wish to see who the family behind the Prius is.

    Pick a domain name you like, say, PriusPix.info, and register it cheap. Point it at your blogspot site. If you can get priuspix.blogspot.com, so much the better. (it's available)

    Thanks for the suggestions already, any more? And also, who would think they'd read this? Maybe, just maybe?

    Unfortunately, prius.blogspot.com appears to have been already
    taken by someone who doesn't appear to be the brightest bulb
    in the box. Oh well, I'm sure you'll be able to find plenty
    of other valid names.
    .
    But consider the potential return on trying to create yet another
    nexus. Take, as an example, priusownersgroup.com -- a valiant
    effort to create another hub of information exchange, but failed
    to actually become what it set out to be simply due to lack of
    participation. Perhaps it's better to contribute to one of the
    several existing collaborative entities -- priuschat, priusonline,
    the various yahoogroups, rather than try to strike out on your
    own and be disappointed from simply not getting the requisite
    eyeballs/fingers to make it a viable entity. It wouldn't be
    your fault, it would just be totally subject to what people are
    used to now and what they'd be willing to branch out to once
    day-to-day routine and complacency has set in.

    I'm glad somebody said that. The nice thing about a blog is that the only thing you can invest in it is time, I am not losing money in an way, etc. I was more curious if anybody would read it, I know the audience of people who are Prius drivers, who spend time on the internet, and also love to photograph is small. But, oh well!

    I up and started it anway, at http://www.idriveatoyotaprius.blogspot.com , and I will probably purchase the simpler version of the domain a little bit later. So far, I am enjoying just documenting my own experience with the car and don't mind that nobody has seen it or commented. Of course, I would love to see pictures of other people's cars, but I'll get there I'm sure, even if it's only a few people. So go check it out! I only have a few entries, but I will probably post a lot this week to get it going.

    Thanks for everyone's input!

    A nice start, and you'll clearly generate some interesting
    content. It really helps when a blog is literate and well-
    written! It's also okay if it winds up being largely
    unidirectional, i.e. comments are few but after all, it's
    YOUR story!

    Your cohasset-beach pic is rather like my "tideland"
    avatar shot, in fact, wherein I try to illustrate that
    tideland == mud flats. That was somewhere out on the
    north shore towards Gloucestah...
