M is for Mystery. This Week in the Writing World...April 15

A-Z Blog Challenge:M
By Brooke Favero

M is for Mystery. Whether you read it or not, everyone needs a little mystery. Chiseled in Rock argues that your blog titles must be, which I thought was interesting.

Do you click on blog titles that are ambiguous, give hints or spell it out for you?

I click on the links that tell it like it is. I don't have time for mystery in my RSS Feed. But sometimes I like it in my cereal.

The title has to interest me. With so many blogs to follow I pass on a lot where the title does not grab my attention. But those with the A-Z Challenge I open, but often am unable to comment sensibly.

I've been cruising the A to Z list, and, with so many blogs and so little time, I do tend to click on the titles that are clever or somehow personally relevant. But I don't want to be a blog snob!

Telling it like it is - always a good thing. And so is your blog.
