I have a lot of ideas about what a good title should be when writing an article, book, chapters, or anything else that literally requires some sort of title.
In my most humble opinion, I don’t see the value in taking leaps or making assumptions about how the reader should “feel” about your article. Look at the following example.
19 Photos From Dumpster Divers That’ll Make Anyone Who Hates Waste Scream At The Top Of Their Lungs
Really? If I hate waste (hate is a strong word) then logically (in your mind) I should scream at the top of my lungs?
I don’t think so.
That headline isn’t even good click bait.
I don’t think that you should ever tell anyone how they should feel, how they should live, or anything else really. Why? No one is smart enough to do that. Let’s face it. People are dumb. ALL of us.
Yes. I include myself in that.
Perhaps, the article title could be written in a much better way.
19 Photos from Dumpster Divers.
That title alone peaks my interest. No need to tell me how I should feel about it. I can make that determination on my own. Thank you.
