It seems as if we’ve reached a level of over-saturation with these blog post titles.
You know the ones.
Those clever little titles which seem to suggest one thing but really mean something else and the author has now sucked you into clicking on the link because of the picture which seems to support the title suggesting one thing but meaning another.
Don’t you just hate them? (sarcasm intended)
Then, you start actually reading the article and find out about half-way through, the thing you thought it was about is actually not it at all, but you’re already so far in, stopping at this point would be like holding in a sneeze (or watching Inception…just give us 2 more seconds Christopher Nolan!…geez).
So, I think I have come up with a solution. Let’s just get it all out of our systems once and for all.
The following is my list of random, misleading blog titles followed by a title more accurately reflecting the actual topic:

And last but not least…

Oh…wait…I guess the last one is pretty accurate. Well, you get the idea. And hey, now you have a “sneak peek” of my first blog article in June.
Let that sink in for a moment.
