Bold and italics both emphasize your words:
• Bold emphasizes a lot. It stands out from several feet away. That can be good or bad. It works great for headings. It can distract needlessly when you use it to emphasize words in paragraphs (as here).
• Italics emphasizes a little. It stands out when you're actually reading the words—not from several feet away.
I recommend that you use bold for your title and most of your headings and seldom anyplace else.
