Tip #13 - The Importance of an Entry Title

While you may not pay much attention to the title you give to a blog entry, it is more important then you may think. Newspapers employ "title editors" who are given the task of coming up with enticing, interesting, and catchy headlines that will attract the reader's eyes and mind to the article. Readers love titles that talk about an "inside scoop" or "inside story." Even if you don't have the inside story on something, you can still give the reader a sense of intimacy with the title. In addition, descriptive titles also help a reader decide if he / she want to read an article.
