Not. April Fools. Gotcha. Catchy and short headlines are important when you write for blogs and online news sites. Maybe a thesis on an analysis of headlines in traditional media versus the new media? As a writer who mainly wrote content and left the headlines to editors in the traditional mainstream media (MSM), the only time I wrote my own heads that stayed as I wrote them was when I produced newsletters; most often the editors would change them. How to write snappy, catchy heads might make a good post in the future. My p.r., advertising and journalism background converge on this topic. Hmmmmm.
My mother used to wake me up with a good April Fool's each year. She really got me when she told me I didn't have school because we had a foot of snow! How I loved those snow days and making snow angels. I missed the big NYC snowstorm in March as I wasn't in the city.
Cheers and April Fools!
P.S. I do not make any money from this blogazine. It is out of my own pocket. If I do ever get any kind of sponsorship, we'll be transparent and let it be known. MotherPie will be very very very selective for sponsorships.
P.S.S. This is a volunteer media literacy project for the time being until I complete my Master's.
P.S.S.S. What's your favorite April Fools trick? Write it in the comment section, please.
