TAGLINE OVERLOAD



When I first started blogging, I did not have a tagline for my blog.  Honestly, I did not even know what a tagline was.  Maybe you still don't know what a tagline is. 

A tagline is a brief description or recurring theme of a blog, typically found under the title.  Taglines have been used in marketing for years because catchy phrases stick with people.

I vaguely remember someone talking about taglines when I attended the first Blissdom way back in 2008. Who knew the importance of such things in the early days of online journaling?   Who knew that one day millions of people would be living vicariously through the lives of everyday people and developing friendships with folks that they most likely will never meet IRL (in real life)?  I sure didn't.

When I started blogging in 2006, I thought my title said it all:  Living Life Creatively.  It would be years before I realized what made my creative different from everybody else’s.  And when I did, I added a tagline. 

In today’s world of social media, where folks flit and fly around looking for a place to land, a tagline may very well be the hook that reels them in. I don't know about you, but I need to land or be reeled in from time to time.



I am sure that some popular blog writers have chosen their taglines carefully with marketing strategies in mind; but at least one may have picked the first thing that popped in her head.  (see below)

I truly am inspired by my fellow bloggers’ taglines; and just to prove it, I have set what I think are some pretty realistic goals based on them.

I would really be thrilled if someone could share her talent by setting my goals to music so that I could remember them when life gets crazy.  It would also make an awesome YouTube video. 

Taglines are a lot like commercial jingles.  Some just have the power to haunt.  You shouldn't underestimate their power.
