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.

  4. 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.
