When writing anything (whether it be a post, a novel, a chapter or a new blog) I often find the title the most difficult thing to consider.
I don’t have a particular technique to writing my posts. Some days I write my title first to give me the inspiration to write the content, other times I name the post after I’ve written the content.
Whatever is easier for me that day is what I do, not whatever is most effective.
I find that the perfect title, and indeed the one that draws the most readers in, is either though-provoking, witty, curious or/and short. I might know a little about what makes a good title but I sure don’t know how to write one.
Does the title even matter?
Yes, is the answer.
You could write content of pure gold but if your title is rubbish, no one will read it.
Your title is your promise to the reader, make it a good one.
And so, in conclusion, I ask you: how do you come up with a good title? What do you find makes the most effective title?
