How to get people to look at your posts
• Have a picture. Pictures grab attention. Text doesn't. Pick up a newspaper from 100 years ago and you will see that this hasn't changed.
• Have a short, attention-grabbing headline. No, don't write *SEX - Now that I have your attention...* we all went to high school and know that trick. Grab attention by mentioning the person that you want to attract - such as *Advice to Mothers*. Or mention the subject in an interesting way like *iPad 3 Problems*.
• Don't ramble. Long, boring stuff gets skipped over. The moment I saw how long-winded your post was, I thought *TLDR* - Too Long, Didn't Read.
People look at postings the same way that they have always looked at newspapers and magazines - glancing for what gets their attention. This is why copywriters and Graphic Designers are so valuable. They know how to do it.
