I’ve been looking for a good case for using sentence case instead of title case for my post titles, and I’ve finally found one.
I found Are you Team Title Case or Team sentence case? today, and although I should totally have been able to say to myself, “Self, it’s okay to use whatever case you want to use,” I haven’t found it to be as easy as all that. I have continued to waffle on the issue, as a look through my archives could prove. (This is a pattern in my life in so many ways, I tell you.)
My favorite reason from the post?
4. Sentence case mirrors human-to-human communication style
Human beings don’t send each other texts, social updates and emails written in title case – that’s the mark of a corporate voice, someone trying to sell us something or make an official proclamation to a mass audience.
It’s sentence case for my titles from now on.
