It Matters What It's Called, Not What It Is


 "A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell as Sweet" 


Jill Sackler, NYS RE Agent, SRES

It's not that I don't realize that the title of a blogpost is super important - if you want your story read, that is. As a matter of fact, not only do I know this but I've researched and written about it before:  How To Write Titles Like a Pro.   


And then, because that appears to be a talent I don't naturally possess, I forget what I've learned and I choose something plain, boring or, perhaps, unrelatable. So, it's happened again and, of course, it's readily visible in my number of clicks.


A couple of days ago, I wrote a post entitled, "Decluttering Your Space." Some time later, a grand total of 67 people had read it. So, I changed the name.


I changed it to How To Empty Your Home Before A Move and, shortly thereafter, 160 people had stumbled upon it. Nothing to brag about just yet, but, maybe, a small step in the right direction. After all, that is the reason we write. We want others to see it, relate, comment, offer advice, and learn from our experiences.

I saw one the other day that was written in Chinese. I am not sure who the target audience is, but since there are 1.6 billion Chinese people maybe that was the smart thing to do.

I have learned that titles can make a difference!  I'm smiling at comment #1 left by Joseph Domino.  There are parts of the country, including California, where the Chinese invest heavily!

Joseph Domino 480-390-6011   You win for the most unique comment I've received in some time. I have a feeling the writer was very aware of his intended audience.

Myrl Jeffcoat  We find that in New York, as well. All the big cities, I guess.

Titles are the first hook on the blog roll.  Win that fight for eyeballs and good things can happen.
