Is A Subtitle THAT Important?
By Grace K. Bianco
Titles are arguably the most important thing when it comes to writing. Every time I post a blog, I come up with my general topic, and change the title five hundred times. To get a view, you need a click. To get a click, you need to capture people’s attention.
When I wrote my book, “Party Pooper: Growing up with Anxiety” (available on Amazon), I actually came up with my title first, and I never changed it throughout the entire writing process. My professor said the percentage of that happening is extremely low. Yet, I based my entire book off of my title.
So, I think we can all agree that titles are important, but are subtitles just as important?
In the past couple of weeks, I have posted a couple of blogs without a subtitle, and I felt like my blog was naked or something.
I see a lot of writers on here post “naked” titles, and I don’t think anything of it. However, when I do it, I feel like my post is missing something.
I love making my titles long and still adding a subtitle. I want you all to know what you are clicking on before you click. Yet lately, a subtitle doesn’t feel right.
I realize this seems a bit much, but if a title is so important, isn’t there some importance for a subtitle?
I will stop my rambling, but just know Medium friends, that I genuinely am asking.
SOS. Please help me. Coming up with a subtitle has been annoying lately, and I can’t figure out if they are even worth the “stress”.
