2 Reasons I’m Really Sick of Seeing Headlines Like These

  1. Overused.  Overdone.  Overplayed.  Unoriginal.
  2. We can do better!  We can think up creative titles that give a teasing little insight into articles.  I bet readers can be enticed by more than just the promise of a list of a things that may be applicable to themselves.  Let’s not encourage lazy narcissism.

  2. TRUE and TRUE. And, unfortunately, they work. I know because I tried one the other day, and I snagged readers I’d never snagged before. But I felt dirty and CHEAP. So I won’t be doing that very often.
