@luckyskins @crestodina I think your problem here is semantics. Don't think of the name of the blog post as going in the title tag, they don't actually equal each other. Think of the name of the blog post as the header.
The title tag is what will show up on top of the browser itself, not inside the page. It's also what shows up in search results. For instance, if you google "chicago web design" you'll see Orbit is the top result and the title of the result is "Chicago Web Design Company - Professional Website Designers - Chicago, IL | Orbit Media". If you click on it and go to our homepage, you'll again see that phrase on top your browser (well, unless you're using Chrome which doesn't show a title, haha).
The H1, or Header 1 if you will, should be the largest headline on top of the page. The name of the page to the reader/user. Most blog software, Wordpress n such, automatically puts whatever you title the post as inside an H1 automatically.
Hope this helps!

Great advice, but I must admit that my favorite part was the use of "nope" over "no". Spot on as always Cresto.

I feel like I'm back in the auditorium all over again! What an amazing weekend, I will be back for sure next year. The speakers were so fantastic, as you can see from this article, but everything outside of that really put it over the top for me as well. Hanging out with like minded designers, ordering 15 sauces for my tots at the Happy Dog, checking out all of the great design work in the ILTHY building, catching a few bands in the evening - it all added up to a trip well worth the drive.
I'd also like to call out James White's talk as well. You might know him better as @Signalnoise. He talked about the old cliché of taking the road less traveled. Something we've all heard a million times. So much so that it's now a saturated path, everyone is taking the less traveled road, trying to think outside the box. So, what do you do now to be different? You get your @$$ out in the woods! I love it. Screw the paths, break off the grid. Do something that you're not comfortable with. James made a name for himself in Photoshop, but instead of staying comfortable and paying the bills, he did a 180. He decided to go straight vector in Illustrator. Step outside that comfort zone. Scary? Yes. But a great way to grow? Bigger yes.
I'm hoping sometime soon to get out the woods and do something I don't know how to do. I've already got the beard.
