What Are You Supposed to Capitalize in a Title?

Last Update: January 19, 2019

So, I've written about 18 articles over the last month and a half trying to build up to new sites. Every time I write an article, I think "I think that's right." and then wing it. I'm sure many of you do the same thing too.

Well, it's been a long time since I was in high school and they taught me the fundamentals for capitalizing titles. Do you capitalize the "the" or the "or?" What about the number "one?"

Well, fear no more and free yourself from the frustration. I just found a website that you type your title into and it does it for you! I know. Some of you are thinking, what a waste of time! Well for the rest of you that just want to have gramatically correct sentences, try out the website below. My theory is that after writing several articles and plugging in the titles, here, I won't need it any more.

Hope some of you find it useful! Also, its great for headings too! You guys are putting a lot into writing your articles. The way I see it, let's get the small stuff right!

Thank you Eric! I am a stickler for correct grammar and punctuation, but I don't always get it right. That website will be very helpful.

Thanks for the heads-up. I know not to capitalize definite articles(a, an, the) and shorter prepositions, but this is very useful.

I have asked myself that so many times lately.

My website has a random mix of capitalization mistakes. Some days only the first word is capitalized. Other days everything is. I also have the weird combinations of not capitalizing the "the" and "or" and "and"

Yet, I want to have a professional looking site since I usually promote very high dollar items. I need to learn the grammatical rules again. That includes punctuation also.

I need to check out that website. Thank you.
