Freshly Pressed Focus – DIY: Bulletin Board Chic

This week, we picked DIY: Bulletin Board Chic, by WordPress user Pradaforbreakfast, for Freshly Pressed. Here’s why:

Reason #1: Strong Headline
“DIY: Bulletin Board Chic” is both informative and catchy. The “DIY” part tells readers that the post provides how-to instructions, while “Bulletin Board Chic” is a creative way of explaining what the project entails.

Reason #2: Effective Design
