Are Titles Hurdles? by Mark McElroy

Mark McElroy:

I saw something the other day about titles being hurdles to easy blogging. The theory goes that stopping to consider a title is friction; eliminating titles all together reduces friction.

Maybe the hurdle isn’t the title, but the way someone approaches creating it.

Anything can stop you from blogging—or whatever it is you’re trying to do. We’re good at coming up with excuses for why we don’t do something, when there are either more important things in our life, or we just don’t want to.

Are titles a hurdle? Sure. But, motivation determines how big of a hurdle it is.
