Why do artists choose to not give titles to things that they do?
Can you imagine if we didn’t title blogs?
As we know, titles are my least favorite thing about the whole blogging process. I write a post and then I spend more time thinking of a title than I did actually writing…
Why do I have trouble with titles?
- Any blogging guide out there tells you that a title is what draws you in: It’s a first impression. As I am lousy with first impressions in real life, I don’t know why my blog first impression should be any different.
- I rarely know what the point of my posts are…I get a theory and I write- to say there is a main idea floating around in there is madness.
- Titles should be clever. While I have clever moments, they don’t seem to happen between my usual blogging hours of 7-9am NYC time.
- One of my blogging friends has always been using Day 1, Day 33, etc
Why do you think artists choose to say something is “Untitled”?
FYI- the restaurant at the Whitney used to be called Untitled, but it hasn’t been open the last few times I visited the Whitney so I don’t know if it’s still in business…
If you were to not title something, what would your reasons be?
