Suppose I must admit it here, my post titles are not overly witty. Having thought of them as identification rather than an enticing call has led to that. Post titles that are identifying for creative challenges are quite helpful (such as KWerner Color Inspiration #55...my first time playing along!), but not witty.
And there are informative & identifying post titles (such as Thank You Temple Grandin & HBO) that work great for search engines. But, there's no flavor and it certainly does not convey how excited I was by the end of the Emmy's.
In the last few months, I've wanted my post titles to be more interesting (such as A Keen Party). But, what was keen about what kind of party? That's not so great for peeps using search engines looking for you or your topic.
And while I'm quite obviously still working on it, there are a few post titles that while not overly witty, do mean the most to me, the ones that make me smile (Acrylic Play, How do you create?, and the post I'm re-sharing with you today, Strawberry Charm). And that's mostly due to how I felt about the topics I wrote on, which ranged from nervous anticipation to creative playfulness to sweet Mama joy.

Last month, my son and his class went on a fieldtrip to the local Ag Fair. He had SO much fun and is still talking about his experiences today. In addition to that lasting excitement, he has a little something growing rapidly that he brought home from that Ag Fair.
They sent each kidlet home with a little strawberry plant. His Dad helped him plant it in the backyard and other than that, we, hubby & I, have done nothing. We watch our son drag the hose across the yard to go water it pretty regularly.
While I was out back taking pictures with the kids yesterday (they had control of the camera, so most of them are of the cats and a few Really unflattering ones of me!), I was so delighted to see just how big his strawberry plant is getting! I snapped a quick pic and thought I would share it.
Thanks to SITS for creating the Back 2 Blogging event and sponsors, Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.
And in case you are wondering, that sweet strawberry plant grew into a healthy producing plant that over the last almost year and a half, has divided itself four times. Our sweet boy has picked a handful of strawberries off of it every week this summer. In fact, he just harvested two more sweet red berries to eat earlier tonight!
Were there any berries growing in your garden this summer? And of course, what do you think about blog post titles?
