How to Effortlessly Write Captivating Headlines

How to Effortlessly Write Captivating Headlines | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Do you know what the average attention span of a reader is today? It’s 8.2 seconds. You read that right. The average attention span of someone visiting your page is less than it takes you to drink a glass of water. You have less than 10 seconds to convince your readers that your content is more than good; you have to convince them that it’s remarkable.

Luckily, you can make your headlines way better if you pay attention to a couple of simple rules....

Better headlines get better readership – a simple blogging truth. Great article that differentiates between headlines and titles. Apparently what drives SEO is not just key-words, but also better headlines that direct readers to specific articles. Amazed to know that the attention span of adults has come done to 8.2 seconds! A good headline would have to grab the attention of the reader in less time than it takes you to dring a glass of water!

There are some great tips here. Our 7th grades write newspaper front pages for an historical fiction project, and last year we talked about good headlines and captions. I'll share this with them this year.

Why I'm shifting my entire personal blog to Medium

Why I'm shifting my entire personal blog to Medium | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The sheer attention to detail and thought that Medium pours into building the service is admirable, and makes it a service worth using.So, this is it. Now that Medium offers full support for domain names, custom publications and even better writing tools, I’m ready to fully embrace it.I’m transferring everything of my own in to really give it a shot. I’m excited about the idea of just writing for myself again and I hadn’t been in a long time before Medium revived that interest — I’ll let you know how it goes....

Medium is better for blogging than ever, and Owen Williams is going all in. Personally, I still like customizing the design in WordPress but I do use Medium to supplement reach for my best blog posts. Multichannel is always better.

Thanks! Believe it or not, I never heard about Medium before.

Would you move your content over to it? I'm super lazy! Also, I hear that there are still some graphic design & branding limitations
