How Not to Overthink Titles for Our Blog Posts; Gain More Views (1 min read)

(Photo by gjsethexplores)

With millions of blogs on the web our title is the first point to try and get people to click and read what we have to share.  We can write the most amazingly helpful content, but if our title is uninviting the post will sit collecting web dust.

So, how can we write a good blog title?

Honestly, I have no idea.  Nope.  None.  I know, I’m no help, but seriously today I changed my posting title 4 times! Probably not the wisest thing to do, but each time it wasn’t grabbing my attention.  Most of the time I try to write a title that leaves the reader wanting more.  I ask myself if the title is engaging enough to pull me in for a click.

We want to give the guts of what we’re writing about without giving away the ending.  It’s kind of like a movie trailer.  We see an awesome trailer, but scenes change before we know what happens.

Maybe, I was a little more helpful than I gave myself credit for.  In case you’re still wanting more click the link below for more tips on writing catchy blog post titles.

  1. I just don’t know why or how, but titles, for me, are really important and I cannot go without thinking about them over and over again. Sometimes, they (good ones) just strike out of nowhere, and then there are the times when I just write whatever the backup’s backup title was, because I couldn’t make up my mind for something brilliant (I want my titles to be brilliant. After all, they are the ones which catch reader’s eyes for the first time.)
    I didn’t prove to be much of help here, probably. But titles-they are important.😁
