Re-Tweeted – Top Post Titles

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of April 2008 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

After the success of last week’s Re-Tweet project where I asked my Twitter followers to submit posts around a theme I thought I’d give it another go this week.

This week I asked followers to submit their best post title (and URL) from the last month on their blogs.

My hope in this (like last week) was to give the rest of us a little inspiration in the writing of our own posts – particularly the titles. You see the title of a post is such an important thing – it can mean the difference between your post being read or not.

So here are the 116 submissions (where people submitted more than one I’ve only included the first) that I received from my Twitter followers. Surf them – link up to those you connect with and if you’re on Twitter follow as many of this great bunch of bloggers as you can!
