Article by Wendy McCance
This post goes out to all the aspiring writers out there. I have been writing like a mad woman. I’ve been having a great time writing down every last one of my thoughts. It’s felt like an excellent therapy session to pour my thoughts out on this blog.
In the search for my personal happiness, I have come to realize that writing is the piece of the puzzle that was missing from my life. I began to scour the internet for every last bit of information I could come up with on how to hone my skills and really make an impression.
So, for this post, I am testing out the theory of “the title”. The theory goes that the title to any article can make or break the article itself. So here I am writing a ridiculous but intriguing title to see if a title really does have that much of an effect on the volume of visits this blog receives. I would love to know your impression of this theory.
So as not to disappoint you after you came all this way to read about a curiosity of mine, I will provide you with a cute story.
One Christmas when my son was 3 or 4, he wanted a frog more than anything. You know those little itty bitty frogs that are the size of a quarter? Well we sent away for a kit that came with 2 tadpoles, food and a little home for them. NEVER EVER send away for an animal of any size or shape. Seriously, this is a BAD idea!!! So Christmas arrives, my son gets these tadpoles and names them Batman and Toilet (Seriously, I’m not kidding).
Within maybe 2 weeks (I don’t think it was that long) the tadpoles have died. One of them had turned to a mushy goo. We ended up flushing them down the toilet which made my son feel better. He felt that since he named one of the frogs Toilet, that putting them in the toilet was like sending them home.
I hope this story makes up for my curious experiment. 🙂
