The name is the most important part of any business. It’s a one-time deal that will set the tone for your entire company. And if you get it wrong, well then, it’s all over. So we’ve put together this list to help you avoid some common beholder names mistakes everyone makes so that you don’t make them yourself!
1) Don’t use an acronym or abbreviation as your name
2) Don’t pick a generic word like “mine” or “ours”
3) Avoid using numbers in your name because they’re not creative enough
It’s your one opportunity to make a great first impression. Why not use it?
Mistake #0: Forgetting to name your Beholder.
In a world where there are many different types of beings, you may not think it’s necessary to give an individual one-of-a-kind creature its own unique identity. But if you want them to stand out from the crowd and be memorable for yourself or others, then naming your Beholder is essential! Naming can also help distinguish between multiple beholders in the same party who have similar stats like Hit Points (HP) and Armor Class (AC). For example, naming two level five beholders “Beholden One” and “Beholden Two.” In this way they’re easy enough to tell apart when reviewing their combat bonuses separately. So now you see the importance of giving your Beholder an unforgettable name!
Mistake #0: Forgetting to give a unique name for each individual creature.
When running into multiple beholders with similar stats, it can be helpful to give them different names so that they are easier to distinguish in combat and when reviewing their combat bonuses separately. For example, naming two level five beholders “Beholden One” and “Beholden Two.” These names make it easy enough find which statistics belong to whichever beholder without any confusion or hassle. So now you see how important personalizing each individual’s identity is!
The more memorable a person is, the better impression they leave on others. The same idea applies here
– The first part of your name is the most important because it’s what people will use to find you.
– People won’t search for “Diana Smith” if they can just type in ‘Smith Diana’ or worse yet, ‘dianasmith’.
– Searches like these are called typosquatters and Google penalizes sites that have them by ranking lower than expected. You should avoid using words that are similar to each other (i.e., ‘cane’ vs. ‘can’).
– If your last name has double letters, try shortening it so both letters aren’t doubled on the web address: smithsmith instead of smithsmitth). Some names become confusing when you type them.
– If you have a hyphenated name, make sure it’s spelled as one word (i.e., ‘John Smith’ instead of John-Smith).
– Cross out any social media accounts that use your full names so those online channels aren’t mixed up with your professional ones.
– Use simple words to describe what the site is about or who runs it: if you’re running a cooking blog for kids, put “Cooking Fun” in brackets on the top left corner of every page rather than writing childcookeryblogger@googlemail dot com – this will help new people find your website when they search Google or other search engines and won’t confuse anyone when going live on social media.
– Put the site’s name in a top corner of every page, and your logo on the home page – even if it’s just a simple design with text only (rather than an elaborate drawing). This will make finding you online easier for both visitors and SEO purposes.
– If you’re running an alternative medicine blog, don’t put “alternative” or “western” as part of your website URL at all; people might not know what those words mean when they read them unless they are familiar with that type of terminology already! Instead, leave these out entirely to help others understand straight away.
– Avoid using too many punctuation marks: while some websites like Tumblr use lots of exclamation points, you’ll want to keep the tone of your website down-to-earth and professional.
– Never use a hard return in paragraphs: when content is split up into more than one paragraph on the page, it’s important to indent new paragraphs using two or four spaces rather than just pressing enter twice at the beginning of each line (i.e., press “enter” once instead). This will ensure that readers can find their place easily when they are reading through your posts.
Text formatting should always be used sparingly; other common mistakes include setting all headings as bold text and replacing normal font with italics where possible. When writing blog post titles, remember not to have any numbers in them – if you want to mention the date your blog post was published, use “Earlier” in parentheses.
This content is not yet written and will be added when completed. You can help out by adding some!
The best way to avoid these mistakes is to read through other websites’ articles for inspiration: what’s common practice? How do they lay things out on their page? What type of language are they using – formal or informal? Is it easy enough to understand that you don’t need a degree in English literature just to get down with them reading this article about textual semiotics (I studied humanities at uni fyi)? Whether it’s copy from another website or writing an original piece, always write according to how readers might react to your content.
How to avoid these mistakes: read through other websites for inspiration, use language that’s easy enough for readers to understand, write in a way that matches the style of the website you’re writing on behalf of.
Earlier this year I wrote about how I made some common beginner blogging mistakes as an example blog post if you want more information: “Early Beginner Blogging Mistakes”. It has been published since April 2016 so it should show up as one of my most popular posts! When people think they know what they are doing but really don’t (hmm sound familiar?), research turns into a bit of a nightmare.
The only way to avoid making these mistakes is by being aware that they exist, and then avoiding them like the plague. You need to know where you want your blog post or website content to go before you start writing about it. Write for readers who are interested in what YOU have written without using too many words – don’t make people work hard for their information!
This article talks about how common beholder names can sometimes give away important plot details if used incorrectly as well as giving some tips on how writers can avoid this mistake when creating new pieces. For example: “Eliza” means “the Lord has heard” (Psalm 116:12) which would probably mean something to the readers of a religious blog and “Elvira” means “elf” in Spanish so if you’re writing about elves or making up your own world, this might not be the best choice. Writing for different audiences is an important part of book marketing; by knowing who your audience is from the beginning, it’s easier to write something that will resonate well with them on multiple levels. If you know who your target reader group is then it should make it less likely that they’ll be put off by any mistakes which could result in low sales numbers as people are more apt to purchase books when there aren’t too many mistakes messing up their reading experience. For example: Those considering purchasing a ‘romance novel’ may
