Capitalising Titles

To capitalise or not to capitalise

Which words should you capitalise in a title? Now I have a style to follow.
I will capitalise - the first word - the last word - and all other words longer than three characters
Which is an even simpler style than the Associated Press style of capitalising:
Capitalise the first word of the title, the last word of the title, and all “principal” words (that’s essentially the same parts of speech I just listed—nouns, verbs and so on), and all words longer than three letters.

Examples

And Here is my First Title
And my Second
Third Title Here
The Fifth Title is a Long Title to Read
A Sixth Title to Be
