Generally try to get a .com domain name, or if you are focusing on a specific local market, then that country's domain could be the way to go (such as .co.uk for a UK focused siteor .in for an Indian focused site).

I like AjaxWhois or DomainTools for checking if the domain is available or not.

Once you find one that is available, then buy it at Namecheap with a coupon such as "summerends" which will give you .com domains for $8.41

Godaddy is another option (I just prefer Namecheap's interface and more personal support). The coupon "goox3004at" will get you .com domains for $6.95

- both are about equal for renew pricing.

Oh, I was thinking that the site would read your mind so to speak, based on a sentence or two about what you want to accomplish with your site. But it's simply an auto-completion. Still, can come in handy when you are not sure where to start.

before choosing domain name, choose what you will be writing of?

I mean, you can easily get idea by deciding what do you want to have on your site?
