This bit on Jon Stewart last week reminded me of how easy it is to go for an obvious blog post title. Stewart mocks CNN’s American Morning for using unimaginative songs as the “bump in” for a story. Rock Me Like a Hurricane for a story about . . . a hurricane. Take the Money and Run for a story about . . . the economy. Bowie’s Changes for a story about . . . pretty much anything. I was definitely guilty of this in my former blogging life—I know I used Changes! We must dig deeper bloggers and avoid the easy hook! Now if I can only build a post around The Daily Show theme song, Dog on Fire. I’m an old Husker Du and Sugar fan—love that Bob Mould.
