[Tex/LaTex] Shift title and author text up

spacingtitlesvertical alignment

What is the best way to shift the title text 'up' in a LaTeX document compiled with pdftex? When I do this:

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper, onecolumn]{article}
\title{Blah Blah Cool}
\date {}

    foobar foobar foobar...

There is a quite a bit of space between the very top of the page and the title ("Blah Blah Cool"). How can I decrease/remove this space?

The titling package might help.


\setlength{\droptitle}{-10em}   % This is your set screw

\author{The Author}
\title{The Title}


See the package manual for more details.
