We all know the importance of blog titles.
If we optimize them with keywords or keyword phrases, we could possibly attract more search engine traffic. If we make them catchy sounding, others may click to read more.
When I published the Lose Weight While Blogging?” post, I later said on Facebook, “maybe I should have named it, “Can’t Stand Blogging?””
The above mentioned post links to an article which states how sitting more than six hours a day can possibly cause health problems plus lead to an earlier death. As a solution, I shared how I decided to build myself a work walk station for my treadmill even though there are prefab ones available.
My comment on Facebook made me wonder, “If that same topic had been written by other bloggers, what would they have named it?”
Here’s what I’ve come up with based on what fellow bloggers blog about, and how they could formulate their titles.
I know my outspoken blogging friend Cath Lawson would chose:
“Get Your Rear In Gear”
And she would include the acclaimed photo of Betsy Wuebker’s derriere (which can be found on Cath’s homepage)
