re: What is your approach for blogpost titles? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I prefer titles that give a clear overview of the actual content being presented (as a RSS feed reader, as I usually only have access to titles, and it's the only piece of info I have to decide if the article behind it is interesting enough for me) than titles that use gimmicks and useless words that talk to "me" instead of explaining content.

Also, I really dislike Titles That Have Each Word Capitalized, and emojis, it's just a pain to read.

 

I guess, title case is more formal and traditional. I prefer sentence case as well.

1,2 emoji is fine for me, but I struggle when there are 10 or some puzzles with emojis 🤯

 

I have literally no idea what that emoji is supposed to be and I can't be bothered to inspect the HTML to find out.

That's my attitude when I see any in blog posts at all, but it's really off-putting when it's in a title. I mean, half the time it's just that unicode I-don't-know square box anyway because somewhere along the line the encoding broke or your font doesn't have it.

All sorts, but on here, on the latest Chrome on MacOS, I sometimes get titles with squares in them.
