The SITS Back-to-Blogging challenge for today is to highlight a blog post title that you are particularly proud of. I scanned through pages and pages of blog posts to pick out a few that caught my eye as being some of my better (or at least more interesting) titles. Is a good title one that makes the blog hopper want to stay and read and find out what the post is all about, like these, maybe?

1- Never underestimate the power of snow and simple toys to keep children entertained.
Our power was out for 18 hours. The kids, amazingly, never complained. Granted, if the power had not come back on tonight, I’m not sure if we would have fared quite so well on day two or three of no power. As it was, the kids treated today like an adventure.
2–Some things are even more entertaining than the computer and DVD player.
But I am not complaining that they are back on now…
3–Kids love being told that it’s ok to play in the street!
4–Kerosene heaters are not only ideal for heating a power-less house, but they are perfect for heating up water for hot chocolate.
And, boy-oh-boy, hot chocolate sure does taste good on days like today!
What types of post titles make you want to click and read more?
