You're fingers are burning from the blog post you've just completed.  You check it over feeling very pleased with yourself and hit the publish button!

2. Constructing Your Blog Post Title - the hook to draw your readers in to your blog post.

3. Opening Line - making an impression on your readers matters.  This line draws them in to read more.
