I hope the Blogging Grammar & Style Police are not out sniffing around today. They might quibble over this change. After using a lowercase style for my blog titles for the past three and a half years (with an initial cap on the first word), I’ve decided to switch to what looks to be the more standard initial-caps style for every word.
I’m doing this primarily because I think it looks better – and more authoritative – in RSS readers. Below is a snapshot of some of the feeds I look at in Google Reader on a regular basis. They’re all using initial caps, including CopyBlogger which is ranked #31 in Technorati’s Top 100.
Except for Seth Godin. But then he’s Seth and still uses the TypePad address for his blog http://sethgodin.typepad.com/. As his blog is currently ranked #18 on Technorati (out of 112 million blogs) I think he can pretty much march to his own beat.
Whew… got that news off my chest.
