    It is correct term?

    Hi,

    I would like to know whether the term "canny blogger" is correct or not?
    If it is what does it mean exactly?
    And also that is a good name for the blog?

    Welcome to the forum.

    As you become more familiar with the forum, you will realise that we expect learners to post complete sentences in order for us to consider fragments or phrases. What do you want "canny blogger" to mean?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    As long as you think that your readers will know what "canny" means, then it's fine. Of course, you can call a blog anything you like, even use completely invented or nonsensical words.

    Re: It is correct term?

    'Canny' means somebody who is shrewd or shows good judgement, somebody who is clever and makes intelligent decisions or observations. However, somebody or something that is 'uncanny' is strange or mysterious, in an unsettling manner.

    Depending upon the primary content you plan to blog about, it could actually be a pretty good name for a blog, especially if you're blogging about personal observations.

    I am reluctant to offer suggestions for naming a person's blog. I don't know the person or his/her potential subscribers. It is similar to suggesting names for someone's baby.

    In the UK, it can also suggest someone who is good at not spending/wasting money. My first thought from this name would be that it is a blog about getting bargains, etc.
