I am planning to buy a new domain for my blog. My name is Joel. If I choose a domain as joelblog.com or something like that will it be nice? Or should I choose a name like expertthings.com or something like that which doesn't contain my name?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Which will be your target audience? – Zistoloen Apr 18 '14 at 9:37

Whatever your theme, which will be your visitors? Possible clients? Do you create a blog by passion or for business? – Zistoloen Apr 18 '14 at 9:44
By passion and also for adsense – Spam Box Apr 18 '14 at 9:46

Regarding comments under your question, I think a good option would be to choose a domain name like joelblog.com because you create a blog by passion. Choosing a domain name like expertthings.com could be great if your target audience are possible clients but it's not your case.

However, you can buy the domain name you prefer, it's just a question of taste.

If you already have a site, the best option is most probably to create a subdomain like blog.yoursite.com because subdomains have been specifically created for this.

but i have a domain. That is like firstname-lastname.com. I think slash (-) is not looking good for a domain. What is your opinion? – Spam Box Apr 18 '14 at 10:01
In that way, the best option is to create a subdomain like blog.firstname-lastname.com. Subdomains have been created specifically for this. – Zistoloen Apr 18 '14 at 10:16
