Yes it is bit tough but not impossible. Mostly bloggers, even the best ones, during their early days of blogging don’t heed much on writing catchy blog post titles, instead they think the body of the post should be well aligned with the relevant SEO keywords. However when traffic doesn’t shot up as per the writing efforts, your blogging spirit struggles to surface and you feel quite dejected. Well, worries not, there are a few smart tricks to win over the art of writing blog titles. 
 
Have an idea! Of course it always starts with an idea. Once you decide what your blog post is about. Open a keyword planner and start playing with the keywords. Find at least 3 keywords relevant to your blog post and try to merge them into your post without sounding fake or overworked.  

In next step, draft a tentative title for your post. Check its veracity in a good search engine like Google and Bing. You will definitely find similar or same topics already covered on various websites. Consider reading first 10 links and see how your title is placed according to the body of the post.
