On Titles

The more perceptive among you might have noticed that I rarely have a particularly interesting title. For posts. Take the last one for example. I had no idea what to call it so I just put in a generic name. Most of my posts are just about what happens everyday. For example, today I traveled in a bus going so slow and bumpy at times it felt like I was riding a lawnmower to work. Then I’d write a post about bus drivers and women on buses and how I slept on my arm and woke up with it hanging by my side, completely numb today. See, I can get a post out with decent speed, I just have no idea what to call it.

I think this naming affliction is going to come back and shock rifle me in the head some day. I’ll probably write a children’s book and call it ‘Daddy drinks a lot because you cry’ or ‘The boy who got beaten up, had a revelation and did his homework better. Also Pancakes.’. Hopefully my powers of inventing-a-name-for-something won’t be called on too often.

I hereby shorten the name of this blog to ASOB,NQIM. I know it sounds a bit strange but as a friend of mine pointed out, it sounds like one of the names you heard when watching ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ back when you were a kid. Or more or less anything said by the little black guy in it. I’ve heard he’s found his dream job in a coke factory and lives happily ever after. Coca-Cola.

Until next time,
Yours untruly,

    Titles MATTER Jerry πŸ™‚

    First thing you notice in a chic is her face and then her boobs right? Similar logic applies here. I mean its got to be attention grabbing in some way. I am likely to read when I am convinced by the title. This is psychology πŸ™‚

    Ohmigosh, What happens when you have kids?

    They’ll probably end up with names like ASOB and NQIM…eek:)

    To tell you the truth I had a prophetic typo when writing that post. Missed the N

    I know it matters, although I’m not sure I agree about the noticing females thing. But yeah, even I get drawn in with titles.

    You got a problem with that?

    Titling is an art. In fact, it draws me to certain posts/articles. πŸ™‚
