You have a fraction of a second to get our attention.

Your post is inspired, your photos are gorgeous, your readers are going to love your post, but wait… what do you title your post? Believe it or not your post title DOES matter. Since Google Reader's Demise, many RSS readers turnicate your posts making your titles more important. Also, your social media distribution on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc,  just gets added to a stream of endless self-promoting to an audience with short attention spans, so really, we all have a fraction of a second to get readers attention.

But what if you can't think of a great post title? Or you can if you had more time, but you're super crunched today… Do not worry. I got you covered!

    I spend hours going through magazines for catchy post titles. It’s great that you take the time to help us and push us in the right direction! xo

    Great list! I’m always wanting to write unique/arty titles but they don’t often explain much about the post. They may sound pretty but they’re pretty useless! Thanks for the cheat sheet!

    I love this. If I see “Top ____” of “_____ Ways to ____” in a title, chances are, I’m going to click it. Coming up with a catchy title isn’t always easy, but it’s always necessary. Take my most recent post for example, I named it “Top 10 items from the Forever 21 Summer Sale.” I was just going to name it “Forever 21” or “forever 21 Sale”, but after reading this post, I realized those were boring. Thanks for your help!

    I am no fashion blogger (infact, I say this all the time, lol) but I like to dabble. There is a holiday coming up and I am thinking my sister should start learning how to take pictures so I am going to try my hand at a couple of outfit posts.
    Thanks for the post title guide, I will definitely be needing these.
