You’ve probably seen some of these ‘over the top’ words in Post Titles on the internet. They are supposed to be so enticing that you will click through to read the story. Here are some of the most common superlatives:
Unbelievable (or You Won’t Believe Your Eyes)
You’ll Never Guess
or Jaw Dropping
for stories, that will
Blow you away
Be to Die For
Take Your Breath Away
Change Your World
Freak You Out
well, OMG – This is Genius!!!
This style of writing has just the opposite effect on me – I simply refuse to click through to read it.
Just this once, though, I’m going to use words from the list above to describe my photos for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge (which is Opposites.) These photos were taken on a trip to the Hawaiian Islands.
OMG! The scenery was to die for! My jaw dropped as I watched the waves crash onto the rocks. Bombshell – that soft looking water can crush the hard looking rock into sand!
I was freaked out by how this once hot flowing magma could become, like, just the opposite – cold and hard! Unbelievable!
That ends my attempt at this writing ‘style’ – would you add any words or phrases to the list above?
