contemplating the use of headlines

This morning I reposted here something that I originally posted on Facebook. I did it because I wanted to save it, to edit it, and to share it in a different medium.

It was all fine until I had to write a headline.

And I noticed that one of the reasons I enjoy posting on Facebook and Twitter is that there is no headline. It’s more of a stream. I enjoy that.

I think that may be one of the reasons that I slowed down posting here so much once I got into posting on Facebook. Something to think about. What is it about headlines that I resist?
