This Blog Post Has No Title

Okay, technically, this blog post does have a title.  But not really. 

I try very hard to come up with decent titles for my blogs.  Really.  A clever title tends to be my first introduction to people who might choose to read my blog first, so it is important that I attempt to be "reel them in".  It is unfortunate, however, that coming up with titles is not what I would consider a strength.  Let's be honest: I suck at titles.  

I can remember being in high school, a page editor for the school newspaper.  This was back in the day, when the newspaper was chiseled onto stone tablets.  Okay, not that far back.  Back when the newspaper was still printed on a printing press, but way after that Gutenberg guy.  Part of being a page editor meant that you had to create the headline for the story, and I would agonize right up until the final moments about them.   I probably agonized so much about them because I was a teenager and hormonal, but that doesn't sound as good.  Pretend that I never said that.

People who are the comforting types might try to reassure me here,  pat me on the shoulder and tell me that I'm not so bad with blog titles.  But that isn't necessary.  I've faced this particular truth in the mirror, and have accepted it, just like I've accepted the cellulite on my thighs.  It is what it is, as they say. 

Still, there is no reason that I cannot at least try to do a better job with blog titles. I'm not too old that I can't at least try to learn something new!  I could read up on one of those journalistic websites.  I could take one of those random classes they offer.   I could just start putting the first line of the post as my title. 

Yeah, that's too freakin' lazy, even for me.
