Most of us know the title to our blog entry is important in getting readers to click on the link to come read it. Some of us don’t want to look like “Click Bait.” How do we find that balance between writing a title people will want to read without misleading them about the content? I started looking around for a freely available analysis tool when I discovered the one I’d used about a year ago was now charging for access — at least in the sense that I needed to submit personal information to be able to use it.
That search led me to Sharethrough. Sharethrough is simple to use. Go to the site, type your proposed title in, and click on the Analyze button. It will churn for a second and provide a number, the higher the number the better. It also explains how it arrived at that number and suggests how you might improve. It lists the strengths of your title and offers a few suggestions (note the positive term as opposed to weaknesses).
I find it interesting that my first thought usually scores around 30-something, but with just a few modifications, I can get my score into 60-something (an average range). I just started playing with this, so maybe I’ll be better with a little more practice.
This month’s scroll is refreshing. I act now! I can grasp the meaning and nuances of this scroll.
Even after several times through, I still struggle with multiplying my value. I’m not giving up on it, of course, because I KNOW much is to be gained when I master that scroll. All this tells me is I am not yet ready. I have more to learn and master until I am able to execute that scroll effortlessly. What a joyous day that will be.
For now, I must focus on acting now. Perhaps, with all the things I have that require action, I truly may have to multiply my value a hundredfold to be able to accomplish them! Hmmm.
I think I figured out the Mail Chimp RSS configuration (two easy drags and drops — why do I tend to make things harder than they really are?) My trusty subscribers will receive three emails from this single post. I … Continue reading →

Correction: that should be Month 19. I’m getting a little ahead of myself. I’ve been getting my services completed faithfully. It’s uplifting to read them each week and know they are getting done. “Do it now” shines through on a regular … Continue reading →
Now that the second year is complete and I’m embarking on the second summer of continuation, I’m going to modify my MKMMA blog posting schedule. Instead of weekly posting, I’m going to plan a mid-month posting. I’ll still do an … Continue reading →
The Law of Least Effort. Acceptance. Responsibility. Defenselessness. Acceptance. I practice acceptance. Today I accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it … Continue reading →
You might think Week 23 is about money, but it’s really about having a receptive attitude. Most people who feel they don’t have enough money focus on the negative aspects of the lack of money and the resulting fear of … Continue reading →
The class has been discussing emotions as tools — the positive aspects of fear and anger and other notorious “negative” emotions. It’s also been “silence” week. I know that was a shocker for me last year, but I have it … Continue reading →
