This is great. I’ve had this beef with Medium for a while (though it’s not specific to them, it’s a web-wide phenomenon). I see that a lot of these titles come from a few specific publications, as well.

We can do better. We should do better. Not just for the writers, but for the readers. Snap the readers out of zombie mode with an interesting headline that’s not just re-using the same vague positive psychology words du jour.

But, I don’t have 30K followers, so…..grain of salt, anyone?
