HA HA Lulu's Blog will create Benefits and Provide Humor and drive Controversy for you won't it? - this is an Important and Witty Post Title

CRAFTING AN IMPORTANT AND WITTY BLOG TITLE is really key to getting people to my blog, I know! Because otherwise, I'm only found through readers googling baby psychic. Or shankapottamus. For a while it was Single Ladies Dance. The Travel Rules still brings 'em in a bit. Phlegm garnered a few hits. And then there were a few for baby phlegm.

Ick.

Phlegm.

I'm back - I had to dump a bottle of Purell on my keyboard. My fives and tens know how I feel about that sticky phlegmmy stuff....ewwwww...

But anyway - apparently there are 226,000 opportunities to get help for 'crafting' a blog title. (In the corporate world at the Huge, we say that it costs more to 'craft' something instead of simply writing it. Good to know if I was getting paid for blogging. So ummm. Back to my point....and I do have one).

I know this because I googled 'blog post titles.' I saw some good tips! Be humorous, create controversy, don't go past 65 characters, provide value, ask questions and personalize it with 'You.'

So I tried to work it all into one title. I can't wait to see how high I am on the google blog title meter!

And oh yeah, I'm still here and it's not November yet (right?) - I was speaking metaphorically or allegorically or sarcasticagorically - take your pick - in my last post. Thanks for potentially missing me! I'll still check in and out during the October road tour - most of my posts won't make sense though, so should provide some BENEFICIAL, HUMOROUS AND CONTROVERSIAL moments - or titles, anyway...

It never occurred to me that a title may be "Googled" or linked. Once again, the bloggers have taught me something. I don't think out my own world. I try to make a title interesting to my own followers, all dozen of them and to keep it pertinent to the topic. Now I see it is a bit of a psych game too. This is very "Dan Brown" with he hidden symbols and meanings and does it really mean what it says. I give up. Brain overload. I'll just write.

I did that with my Naked Girls post, which at least had a photo of naked girls. The rest of the post was about something else, probably all about me.
I am an expert on phlemm at the moment, still can't spell it though.
Thanks so much for your note, I know how busy you are these days. Oh, almost forgot, love love love your post title! xo

Awesome post title Lulu! It never occurred to me to Google "blog post titles". I hope this one draws in mountains of interest for you cuz your/us loyal readers know how awesome you are and we're happy to share you with the masses.

Hope all is going well at the Huge and the tour is shaping up for you. I'm cheering you on from the sidelines.

I would have enjoyed this more if the Title had started "Hey Handsome!" then I would've known you were talking to me for sure.
