Default -A New 1-2-3 Guide on Creating a Successful Thread-

Hi, everyone. I'm PugsRock, but you can call me Pugs.

I am going to teach you how to start a good/successful thread in three steps. Here are your supplies:

~a computer with a keyboard
~fingers
~your mind

Ok. Now we can start.

1. TITLE

The title of your thread needs to be catchy and real your reader in. But it can't be so silly that no one will read it. Here is an example of a boring thread title:

i got a dog.

Would you want to read that? I wouldn't. Here is an interesting title:

Woof! I got the greatest gift!

The reader now knows it's a dog, but still wants to read on.

2. BEGGING- A BIG 'DON'T'

Another not-so great way to start a thread is to beg. Here:

COME TO MY THREAD!

CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

or inside your thread:

I got a doggie! She's so cute! Yep, POST! BYE!

POST PPPPLLLLEEEEAASSEE!

The title doesn't give good enough information. You never know what you'd find in there! And the sentence seems rude and pushy.

3. SPELLING/GRAMMAR

Your teachers are right- spelling does count! Now we're inside your dog thread. First is the bad spelling.

Heyyy, the titli saies all- i gots a dog. shes cute and i name her ginger.

Good spelling:

Hi! Today I got an amazing present- a labrador puppy! I named her Ginger, because of her fur color.

*extra information:

Be specific! I love details:

Ginger's fur feels like velvet. Especially her crazy ears that stick up! I wonder what she thinks about how I look. Does she think I'm as cute? I know I don't have a big wagging tail and giant fur-covered paws (meaning she'll grow HUGE!), but I think she likes me. She's a great friend!

*don't use 'text speak' like OMG! I luv my new dog. shes gr8!

Let's recap:

-a title that pulls the reader in
-proper grammar and spelling
-no begging, because that's not fun
-detail
-no text speak

Thanks for reading! I hope your threads are successful. If you want any more information, feel free to PM me, or post your question here. I will answer as soon as possible.

Bye!

-Pugs
