This headline for me not just for blog post but can be used for copywriting to write for our squeeze page.

I was a little late to the party, but I'm starting to understand just how important a good title is. I use to treat this with a little time and effort. Not so much anymore. Of course by you coming up with this list Mark, it shows you surely understand the value of headlines. My recent post BigCommerce Review

Mark - Just found you through MyBlogGuest - I missed your email but just found it and decided to come have a look.I wonder what would happen if I were to plan to write about all of these 150 titles over the next few months? You're on to something here. I'm strongly considering making that a challenge just to see what happens. The power of the title.Good work! Has got me thinking...Tia

Great list! I think headlines are probably my most difficult area when it comes to constructing a post. I don't know why, but I feel like (unless I have a list post) that coming up with a short yet compelling headline is more difficult than writing the post itself. Thanks for the ideas!


Great resource! The headline is the most important part of your blog entry. This also applies to video, facebook posts, and so much more.
