When you write an blog article you often wonder what is the proper way to format your title. There are many different writing styles used within the online community, however there are styles that are commonly used when writing blog title, the title case, the sentence case and the all capital case.

This is most likely the most popular method of writing blog titles. There are many variations to this method, but here is the basic idea:


Sentence Case

In sentence case is only used for the first letter of the first word in the sentence and for every proper noun.
