No Replies? Try Upping Your Title Game! 🤔

No, I’m not suggesting each title go full-on “One Weird Trick” clickbait, but if you spell words incorrectly, use lazy text speak, use all lower-case (even for spirit names), or go for ultra-generic baby-birdie titles like “Help” then your topic is likely to get less interest than when you make a bit of effort.

Other people’s time and attention are prized commodities online, you cannot take them for granted. :wink:

And more importantly, lazy titles make YOU look lazy, like someone who just wants to post questions and have them answered, in soundbite-sized chunks, and with no real effort invested to evaluate the advice given.

I realise this is increasingly how people are taught to learn and operate, but it is NOT how magickal education, personal evolution, and ascent, work. Do yourself a big favour and read this article for why this is the case: Magic needs a curious mind – the learning dilemma for magical students.

So please, do your sincere quest for knowledge or assistance due credit and don’t make sloppy titles! :+1:

You’re presumably here for serious reasons, and have big ambitions, don’t sell yourself short by being slapdash.

This PSA comes from the Department of “yes-I-make-typoes-too,” via the office of “but-not-on-my-effortposts.” :stuck_out_tongue:

Well I know some of mine are going to be spelled wrong, but overall I wholeheartedly agree.

(Spell check can help, to an extent.)

@Lady_Eva Good post and a good article in the link. A ‘funny’ and good example of your point is that 10 persons clicked the :heart: to like it and only 4 have clicked on the article to read it.
