Mylot of cheesy posts

This is another mylot and food post, seeing as the last one was super busy. Have you ever wanted to write something serious, but found that post never read, and the silly cheesy one someone else wrote is super popular....well there are some reasons for that. It's not that we don't care. We do! We often don't know what to say, or how to say it. Serious posts often are, well serious, and that's fine. But they need hooks. What's a hook? A hook is not only something that hooks the reader in, it's a place they can hook on and find a way to comment. Asking people advice, or a question would be a hook. Giving them ways TO respond will increase your responses. Take your next serious post and add a hook, and tell me how it goes. Now on to cheesy, and cheesy posts. We all (ok most of us hahaha) like cheese. We all, or most of us, like a well written cheesy post now and then. Even if these don't have that all important 'hook', they are, by nature easier to reply too. I found the pictured cheeses today. (adding Cheese to this post, bwhahahaahah). The chocolate cheese is just.... odd. I will let you know later how it tasted. The garlic chedder, is something I ate TONS of as a child, and TOTALLY LOVED. Different brand, and looks different, I just hope it is as good as the cheese I was raised on. Hooks..... Ok, so two things. One, what is your favorite cheese and why do you like it? And Two, what kind of hooks do you like using here?

Cheddar cheese is my favorite cheese. I like to use a photo as a hook or a title that may hook a reader. A question presented at the start of a post can sometimes hook a reader.

My favorite cheese is Colby jack. I like the milder cheeses verses the sharper ones and the two flavors combined is great. My general hook is How was your day? Or I will ask a question regarding something related to the post. I try not to get serious too often and I'm never philosophical as I have a real hard time understanding those kinds of posts or knowing how to respond to them.

cojack is pretty good, and I prefer harder sharper cheeses. Those are good hooks, and you are right, some of the too serious, it's just really hard to know what to say

I enjoy an extra sharp cheddar. Years ago it was sold by the wheel in many of our corner markets. Horseradish cheddar is another favorite. A hook that I often use is a question wondering if something similar has ever happened to the reader.

@Jessicalynnt I am not sure I would like that one. I do like garlic and horseradish cheeses.

Ha ha, awesome post! Good advice, too. I try to ask questions at the end of my posts, or raise an issue that might be fun to discuss. (I don't always succeed, mind you.) As far as cheese - depends on the mood. I like a nice provolone for sandwiches, or swiss depending on what else in the the sandwich. White Irish cheddar is good. Blue cheese is great. I even like Brie if it's ripened properly and not overripe. I have really never met a bad cheese and I could write a whole post about them. I think my absolute favorite is smoked Gouda.

White Irish cheddar is indeed good, but I tend to like most cheeses!

I love most cheeses but mostly very crumbly English Cheshire and Wallace & Gromit favourite, Stinking Bishop (yes, it's a real cheese) - this clip is from Grand Day Out where they prove the Moon really is made of cheese
Wallace and Gromit land on the Moon to hunt for Cheese in this classic clip from the Oscar winning film, A Grand Day Out. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/hpmDXE Dow...

Colby cheese is one of my favorites. I can't pick one. I even like the Kraft cheese singles as a snack. Some cheesy posts do really well.

I love a nice colby. I however do NOT like Kraft cheese, too smushy and I swear it tastes like the plastic it comes in. Well this cheesy posts seems to be doing well.

I like parmesan, quickmelt, cheddar, a bit of mozarella, then we'll have cheesy pizza. As for the hook, I don't know yet 'cause I rarely post topic. I make comments though.

a good Parmesan is a lovely cheese, and I love most cheddars.

A hook is a good idea. I usually ask a questions. Mylotters love to give their opinions.

I guess my most usual hook is a question somewhere along the line. And I try to have a somewhat imaginative title. Vince doesn't like cheese much at all and I only like the milder types. I love camambert.

I sometimes do the catchy title thing. I have to figure out how to make my "boring" speaker refinishing posts "sexy." They work better when I tie them in with something philosophical. Or something (like hobbies) that most people can relate to. I love cheese, by the way. But the thought of cheese fudge make my toes curl under just a tiny bit.

Irritating people can be a hook unless it drives people away. Cheese? I love it about as much as I love all things sugar. We indulged this Christmas in a 7 ounce brick of Irish cheddar. Oh me oh my on the fatty crumbles. There still is a smidgen left.
