Marilyn here. I can’t legitmately say the “redheaded sister” anymore because I’ve decided to let my hair grow out and see what color(s) it actually is these days. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it in its natural state. It might be so scary that I go running for the L’Oreal double-time.
And what does that have to do with the blog title? Nothing, zip, nada. It’s just that at the RWI meeting Saturday, one of the members did a brief workshop on blogging and talked about catchy post titles. I can’t do catchy. I occasionally manage clever, but mostly I’m pretty blah and to the point. I can’t even claim credit for this title; I saw it in an article years ago, something about how to get a guy’s attention: show up naked and bring beer. (Do I get credit for remembering it??)
Do titles make you read a blog you otherwise might skip? Or do you stick with your usual roster of blog-hopping, reading regardless what the title is?Just how important is that brief little string of words to the reader in you?
