Hi – When I click on download link for the headlines printables, the windows becomes grey and nothing happens.

What a superb post. God knows how long this must have taken you. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m a newbie blogger (>4 months), may I ask what dimensions you used for this infographic? Kind regards, Peter.

Hey Peter, yeah it did take me a long long time… It’s 735px by 3189px 🙂

This was sooo helpful. I’ve basically started incorporating some of these title ideas into my blog posts, and it honestly catches a lot of attention. Wish I had found this a lot sooner.
Thanks soo much, great post!
