Design Clickbait! Click So I Don’t Get Fired!

My Pocket has been getting ready for this post for a loooong time now. Y’all know what clickbait is, right? Basically it’s the premise of creating a title for a post that you can’t not click because otherwise your jaw won’t drop! And we don’t want to live in a world without droppin’ jaws, right? (Apologies for any rhymes, I may have been listening to the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack while writing this post) Now, I have a big problem with clickbait – in that I can’t resist clicking when I see a title about design/pretty houses/houses that haven’t changed in 72-56-999 years. So I thought I’d share a post filled to the brim with some of my favorite clickbaitiest links since we could all use some pretty. Even if it is mostly believable, let’s suspend our rational brains for a few minutes and revel in the crazy world of clickbait 😉

Legit Clickbait

She Hasn’t Changed Her Home For 72 Years. When You See What’s Inside, Your Jaw Will Drop! – This house is pretty amazing though, y’all. I’m so happy I fell for it.

No One Lived In This House Since 1956. When He Moved Inside? UNBELIEVABLE – The color study in this post is really what makes this brilliant. Who is this pink-storian?

It Looks Like A 200-Year-Old Crumbling Home, But Inside It’s A Different Story – I would like this clickbait home. Please??

Just Pretty*
