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!
