The title of your blog must be metaphoric or symbolic. If you're REALLY good, your entire site

will "play" with the words/images of your comparison, creating an extended analogy.


Check out the following web sites for inspiration:

  • Wet Paint: This site employs a painting metaphor, comparing painting a masterpiece

          to constructing a web page. Notice how the graphics, headings, tag lines extend the

          painting analogy.

  • CogDogBlog: Alan Levine doesn't use an analogy, but he does an excellent job creating a theme.

          Note how his entire layout plays on the dog theme. 


See examples of poems that employ extended metaphors:
