This Time It Is Misleading Before I wrote about "Not Misleading" which is on the manner why I changed my display username and profile, I explained it so as not to mislead my fellow myLot users. Now, I couldn't bear the trick of misleading anyone here of my post. What has been written in my title is being discussed and elaborated in the body. Since I got back on this after a month or so of hiatus of interacting, I had come across of tricky post titles, misleading title to attract readers. I prefer of not doing it. It's not a good practice. It's a deception. Are you doing it? How often do you mislead your readers, followers? Are you happy about it? Nobody could stop them. It's their style but I am afraid they'll be losing their credibility as a writer.

Maybe it is not a good manner, but honestly, sometimes, unpredictable stories or misleading titles entertained me, because sometimes, they made me laugh, they made me think and they made me wonder and left me hanging with the question,Oh, this person is different?. hehe

@dodoazo Here is a link to one that you might call misleading. I think it is more that readers 'assume' they'll know what the post is about. What do you think?
@JudyEv it's a catchy title but it's not misleading. That's another form of entertaining writing. The content has to do with the title. What I mean here is that the title has nothing to do with the content. It's written to attract readers. For example, "The House Is on Fire", then the content is about his love life.
