  • Write a short headline that means something to somebody or just hit DELETE.

    Long, obscure headlines invite people to leave. Quickly.

    Sometimes I have the time to re-write a headline. Sometimes, like today, I don't. There are some good points in the links below. But you wouldn't know it from the deadlines. So, a few thoughts on headlines:

    If you're going to take the time to write it, take enough time to write a head that attracts readers. Otherwise, recognize yourself as an existential masochist screaming into the void.

    Put yourself in a reader's shoes and answer the big question: "who cares?"

    You better answer that fast and well.

    And that means getting rid of meaningless first words and phrases like "Monday Moanings" or "What I liked today," or "Humongous Megacorp, a major supplier of something another, announced blah today that ..." Clue: nobody cares.

    You MUST tell people why something matters, what it does and why they NEED to read your short, meaningful headlines.

    Active verbs folks. Hint: "announce" ain't active enough to matter.
