  1. Here is my attempt at what I think was a good post title.


    I would be interested to see how you would recommend making it better.

    I’m also interested in ideas that will help you create a eye catching titles that stay on topic so that the url get indexed well by search engines, without the “Top 10”, or “Ultimate Guide To..” just appended to the title. I’m talking for simple posts like this one.


    That is two links, but hey I asked some questions. Looking forward to the post.


  2. I was one of the “chosen ones” that Brian helped last fall. This was my post …
    THIS IDAHO SCHOOL NEEDS YOUR HELP! PLEASE READ THIS POST! Brian’s rewrite was more appealing, by far with the message being about not leaving these kids behind. It even generated a challenge for matching funds, but I don’t think that ever took off. Too bad. 🙁

  3. This is an intriguing challenge, Brian. It will be very interesting to see your work “in action”, as it were. It should be a real education.

    I would be interested in an alternative title to this short story of a father’s afternoon walk with his daughter:

    Being Taught Appreciation

  4. Yay 🙂 I love these series.

    Here’s a few:

  5. Big Fat Crafty Gal Needs Help Writing Headlines!

    It’s true, all of it! I started a blog 3 weeks ago to review plus-size knitting, crochet and sewing patterns. People love it. But now my headlines are starting to look the same. How many times can I get away with “7 New Plus-Size Patterns at blahblah.com?”

    I followed one of your formulas for my latest headline and have gotten the least traffic ever. I can only conclude that I seriously screwed up because you, of course, are brilliant.

    “You Don’t Have to Be Skinny to Make Things from Knitty”

    Pretty clunky, I know. It’s a big deal that knitty.com is now sizing up all of their patterns. How do I capture that in a headline?


    Thanks for your great content and take care.

  6. Akismet is marking some of these submissions as spam… I’m trying to fish them out if possible, but I get a TON of spam comments, so some may slip by.

  7. HI there
    If this offer to help rewrite headliners is still open, I would surely be grateful. This is my first attempt at writing any type of press release at all so any comments you are able to make would be much appreciated
    Kind regards
