Hi, I am trying to put a div that will list out 10 additional post titles  from the 10 already being displayed on my home page.
Basically, in the reading section of my admin panel, i have the post set to display 10 post. I would like to display the NEXT 10 additional post by title only. (to keep bandwidth and site-load down on my site).
I am experimenting (with the attached code) below the loop in the index.php file in my theme. I was reading the codex page of wordpress, but sadly, my php skills only go so far. I am getting it display the post titles however they are not formatted(listed out) and they are not the 10 additional post, but all of them.
Can someone help me tweak this to work properly?

Also, I read using two loops was bad, so if there is another way to do it, let me know.
<?php
// test code for post box
$query = 'posts_per_page=10';

$queryObject = new WP_Query($query);

// The Loop...
if ($queryObject->have_posts()) {
	while ($queryObject->have_posts()) {
		$queryObject->the_post();
		the_title();
		
	}
}
?>
