How Do You Choose a Blog Title?

I suddently got a doubt. Am I titling my blogs right? Are there any guidelines on blog titles? So I went to my new favorite search engine and typed “blog titles?”.

I liked what I got. So I am going to list them here with my comments.

Titles that Grab Readers

The entry is simple and to the point. I got what I wanted. I got a lot more when I started reading the comments.

Wiki Titles vs Blog Titles

This was an unexpected bonus. I use a wiki a lot and I normally put the topic keywords as the title. I never seriously thought about blikis (blogs+wikis).

Blog Titles are Ads

This was much closer to what I was looking for. Fairly detailed post with lots of useful information. I will go with the author’s opinion that blogs are your ambassadors. Every blog reveals a bit about you.

Blog Titles should be Song Titles

I could not really resist that one. I think it is cute. I wonder whether this works internationally?

Finally here is my search link. If you find anything interesting, please let me know.

    • Thanks. Should have mentioned that it is the “title of a blog post” and not the “blog title”. But I was reacting to a problogger article.
