200+ Awesome Blog Post Title Templates for Powerful Headlines

One of the most important skills for any blogger is the ability to write headlines that capture attention and interest. With so many different blogs and websites out there, you’ll need to convince and entice readers to give your content a chance.

The job of a the blog post headline is to get browsers on social networks or Google search results pages to click through to your content, and then to begin to read the text of the article. Once that visitor arrives at your site/blog, the title becomes less important than the content itself, especially the introduction and opening paragraphs.

Although the post title or headline is just a few words, it’s not always easy to write. In fact, writing effective headlines in today’s world of short attention spans and massive amounts of content is quite challenging.

If you struggle with writing headlines, like I do, one of the best ways to improve your skills is to study the titles and headlines that other websites and blogs use to capture your attention.

In many cases you can use templates to create highly effective titles and headlines, regardless of the niche that your blog covers.

Recently I’ve been compiling a lot of headline templates so I can put them to use when I’m struggling to create an effective headline on my own. I decided to turn this collection into a post and publish it so other bloggers can benefit from these blog post title templates as well.

Simply fill in the blanks with keywords that are appropriate for your content or niche and you’ll have headlines that are capable of gaining additional exposure for your blog.

This list can also be really helpful for brainstorming and coming up with plenty of blog post ideas on just about any possible topic.

How to Know When to Sell Your Website or Blog

By far the most profitable days of my career have been the days when I sold websites. I’ve sold several different sites since my first sale in 2010, and these lump sums are always exciting.

Selling a website or blog can be a great way to improve your financial situation, but selling at the right time is extremely important. You don’t want to sell too early and miss out on the chance to make even more money. And you also don’t want to hold on to the site too long and watch the value decline.

I’ve had a few friends over the years that sold sites for 10-25% of what they could have sold it for just a couple of years earlier. Ouch. I don’t want that to happen to me, so I’m always watching out for signs that it might be nearing the time to sell a website.

Selling your website is a personal decision. Factors related to your family and career will impact the decision, so you can’t take anyone’s advice (including mine) without putting it into the context of your own situation. This article is intended to be a guide to get you thinking, but not to tell you what is best for you, because only you know the details of your own situation.

The Pros and Cons of Selling a Website or Blog

If you’ve read my article How I’ve Made Over $1 Million Blogging you know that selling websites and blogs has been a major part of my business over the past 10 years. While I’ve made a pretty decent income from managing my own sites and blogs, it’s the lump sums that I’ve made from selling some of those digital properties that has been life changing for me and my family.

I’m not saying I can kick back and never work again, because that’s not the case at all… I work long hours every week. But selling websites has allowed my wife and I to load up on our retirement savings so we’ll hopefully be able to retire a little early, plus we’re able to live mortgage free.

Over the years the topics related to my experience with selling websites and blogs have always seemed to be intriguing to a lot of other bloggers. If you’ve never bought or sold a website before it can be a little overwhelming to think about the process of actually selling your own blog. But at the same time it can be really exciting to think about how much money you might be able to get for it!
