I have a background in Journalism and communications, and I know that a title matters. I had college classes dedicated to writing good titles, I was editor of the college paper, I wrote my own column, and every time a good title mattered.
I write professionally for two blogs that I’m paid for, and I have my own. A good title brings readers and new subscribers. A good title will get your book or article read. So what did I do? I placed a crappy title on my blog. “A First Draft”. Really? So, I now have proof that if the title doesn’t work, your views are in the garbage. My views were in the garbage. When I realized what I’d done, I changed the title. My views went up.
Lesson learned, again. It’s good to have a reminder though. Thanks to everyone that did visit, even when my titled sucked.
Until Next Time…
