Escape From Headline Hell With A Free Makeover


Last article I wrote about hellish headlines and the importance of crafting attractive blog post titles which led to some really good dicussion in the comments of that post. Since then a number of folks have contacted me to makeover some of their headlines. So, I thought we should do some makeovers of blog post titles right here on AG.

Here’s how it works…

In the comment section below, drop a link to the post you want considered for title makeover. I’ll pick a few of the submissions and rewrite them in next week’s post with some explanation of the rewrite.
