How To Pick A Bookstagram Name?

There are a few things you might want to consider when choosing a bookstagram username:

1. Don’t Settle With The First Idea.

Note that I used the word shortlist in the title because really, don’t hop on the first idea you have that’s available. You don’t want to regret it later. 

Yes you can always change your bookstagram name but it is best you stick to one and not keep changing so that it will be easy for people to find you when they search your username.

This brings me to my next point…

2. Check Availability On Other Social Media Platforms.

You want to quickly grab that username on other platforms you might want to experiment with in the future, such as, youtube, twitter, pinterest and tiktok. 

Doesn’t matter if you don’t end up creating bookish content on other platforms, you’ll at least have the username if you happen to change your mind.

You can even go the extra mile by purchasing a domain once you are set on the bookstagram name idea. 

Don’t be like me! Please learn from my mistakes! 

I really liked the name brewingwriter for my blog because I love coffee, books and writing too.

However my bookstagram handle has always been @soniasingh_ and the brewingwriter handle is taken on bookstagram!

It’s pretty annoying when I think about it and people may not easily find me on all social media platforms because of brand inconsistency.

3. Keep It Short And Sweet

Want to grow a following? Make sure your username is simple enough to remember.

The length of it matters too, 2-3 words would be ideal.

Not only that, it should be easy to spell out and search for. You want to make yourself as visible as possible if your aim is to grow a bookstagram following.

4. Name Should Showcase Who You Truly Are.

For those who don’t end up choosing a username with their name in it (eg: @zarareadshere), making sure your bookstagram name reflects your personality or genres that you read is highly important (eg: @biblio_mom, @romancelibrary, @booksandskittles)

Your bookstagram name is the fastest and easiest way for someone to resonate with you. If you bookstagram name has words like “books” and “coffee”, than you’re most likely going to be followed by someone who loves both.
