When setting up your new blog it is important to get your preferred setup correct. Its rather a pain to change later!
Ideally you will want the title of your post as the post name, which in turn will have the keyword you have set for the post. This is for Search Engine Optimization.
I have seen many blogs that use the domain name / date / post name structure. This could work for you but as I have recently discovered, it has a con.
If you have been blogging for along time and decide to cleverly “republish” a post because it is timeless (example: making hearts for valentines day out of foil) and you republish (the next year), that date is going to change and everyone that has ever linked to that URL (Pinterest, linky parties, roundups, commentluv posts, google) will now go to your 404 page (aka the black hole). Not cool.
