Blogging: H = Headline

Headlines are extremely important.

They draw your readers in.

The headline for a blog {or any other piece of writing} is normally the first thing a reader sees, so it is important for the headline to be catchy and exciting if you want to lure in new readers and followers.

Your headline should be a sentence or couple of words that reflect what your blog post is about.   It should be short, appealing, and memorable.  It should make your readers want to see more.

For some tips on writing great headlines, check out this article.  It lists some good techniques for developing headlines that will generate more readers.

{This is my 100th post!  Yay! - I know it may sound silly to some of you, but I made it to 100 posts, and recently, I have been receiving more views and more individuals are following my blog now!  I am super stoked about all of it!}

So so important- can't be stressed enough! If the headline's not interesting, there's a 75% chance noone will read it (my own manufactured statistic :P)

Hi Kayla - congrats on your 100th post! *throws confetti*

Thanks for the link to the article too. I'll check it out.

Off subject, I noticed your blog's tagline includes trying to find happiness. You might enjoy my good friend's website: MyHappyPath.com - very positive and inspiring.

Have a great A - Z month! :)
