Let it be
CHOOSING A TITLE
Because there are few blogs which I check on daily basis and those are the ones stored in my Favorites. All the others I have a choice to read or not to read- and this depends ONLY on the TITLE.
The strong ones are the titles which betray the reader! It makes me SMILE when I read a title that has nothing to do with the post itself.
Then I'd be thinking, if I was the one to write this post what title would I be choosing...
The funniest titles and the most interesting are the ones which say exactly the contrary of what the post says! This I found stimulating.
The most creative ones can make you click to read the post without a second thought, just because you'd be so curious to know what it is all about.So I believe, the victory lies in the fact that someone clicked on the post just because the title triggered the curiosity nerve, and whether the first paragraph only was read or the whole post it doesn't really matter!
Well it does in a way or another, but the point im trying to make is that people have different tastes, so it is ok if someone started to read and then stopped.
People, be creative with titles, let it be engaging, catchy and interesting. Someone might not be interested to read what you write just because you've chosen the wrong title.
And yes, titles like 'Untitled' is mysterious, it is untitled but still makes you want to read.
What I call as questions titles are also mysterious, since it makes someone reads the whole post to get to the answer.
A title makes the absolute first impression. If the title does not encourage someone to read further, what's written will never be seen.
