    Everything said was very logical. However, think about this, what if you
    were to create a awesome title? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your website, however what if you added
    something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean CFP: Taking Stock of Research on Violent Political Extremism – War and Media Network is
    kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and
    watch how they create news titles to get people to click.

    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
