It’s 11:36pm on a Wednesday night in 2018, and here I am sitting in my residence dorm room with the task of writing a blog post. If you had told me this is where I would be, and what id be doing a year ago today, I wouldn’t believe you for a second.
I wouldn’t say I’m much of a creative writer, but being a student at St. Lawrence in Advertising and Marketing has presented me with this opportunity to use my mind and fingers to get thoughts and opinions into words. It can definitely be daunting at first, but with a little trial and error, great creative pieces of work can be formed. Here are some of my own tips to get your blog on the way.

Some things to consider when coming up with a title include:

“Without a headline or post title that turns a browser into a reader, the rest of your words may as well not even exist”
