Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 55
My two biggest blog posts (by a WIDE margin) have the amazingly catchy titles of "Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. XX" and "The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. XX" and I have about 90 days of data to prove that. The "Snappy Headlines" crowd have a post here or there with some astronomical numbers that just prove that PT Barnum was right about a sucker being born every minute. They don't have much data on what happens when a sucker realizes they are a sucker. They usually tend to become an enemy do they not? If you find yourself constantly going after the big picture "tricks" and not working on the content of your brand, then you might lose the best branding that you have which is YOU. I've said it before and I will say it again, but the only person who can really destroy your brand is you, so don't get stuck in the trap of "tricking" people into reading unless you are damn sure that you are worthy of being read.
