In the last video on this subject the author suggested writing  the title of your post before completing the post. While that approach may work great for some bloggers, not everybody knows exactly where a post is going before it is written. Interestingly enough, the author of that video presented a great argument for not doing that in the video with an example of starting a post with one thing in mind and ending up somewhere entirely different in the end. I understand the concept of the title being your promise, but not every promise should be kept in this instance.

I have to side with the author of this video on this one. Sure, go ahead and create a title based on where you intend to go with the post before you start writing.

But don’t feel as if you’re tied to keeping that exact title. As you expand on the subject during the course of your post you will open  up new doors to other related subjects. You might even decide to take a completely different path to your conclusion. If you stick only with the subject matter you intended you may think of a better way to express the subject of your post, but be unable to do that with your original title without being misleading.

Refine, tweak, and most of all, give some real thought to your post titles. Don’t let yourself become boxed in to writing a boring post because you felt you could not change course even though that would better serve the content. Be flexible and let the process flow naturally or your post titles will seem contrived. The object here is to get people to read your posts and take something of value away with them. That’s what makes a great post, not a killer title that really has nothing to do with the content of the post.
