1001 Life Lessons…

15th post for #bloganuary (a WordPress event)

The Prompt: What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from learning?

The Answer: Always include a number in your blog title.

Ok, I’m being just a pinch sarcastic on this one, but tell me it isn’t true. No, please tell me. It feels like so many blog titles are following a recipe that calls for a numbered list. All this math is exhausting. Anyway…

I shared my perspective on this topic already in the very first post of this series, however it received very few reads as I was just newly onboard this WordPress platform and hadn’t built up an audience yet. So I highly encourage you (beg of you), to check out Dear Monty (1st post for #bloganuary). Don’t miss out on this life lesson!

Be well,

    I remember reading somewhere that if you include a list in your blog you should definitely title it with a Top 5 or Top 10 or Top 74… whatever number… and it’s likely to attract more views. I feel like it’s clickbait. But I shamelessly do it whenever I put together a list.

      Yeah, I’ve seen something like that too. I’m sure it works…just a bit funny when you scroll through all the titles and they look the same. I love me a creative title so I’m more inclined to tank a post with a title that will make me feel happy then get the clicks. But don’t hold me to that…I’m still new here. Haha.
