To Oritseyemi Emmanuel Madamedon -

Now what else can I say? "Every post on this site is gold!" is quite a comliment. Thanks for taking the time.

All the best to you. David

What a fascinating concept, especially when we are taught to use only positive headlines and leads. I see, though, how a negative headline can work to pique someone's interest, so that they HAVE to see what the post is about. Another great post! Thank you.

I've tried negative headlines on a few of my sites and it's worked well on two of them.

I have always been taught to use only positive headlines because a negative message "scares your audience away." But I can see how negative headline or lead play with someone’s curiosity. My first reaction to "do not read this blog post" was to click on it and read it! I must try this technique now. Thank you!
