One of the more popular ways of conveying information and knowledge on the Internet is through a list-based article, or ‘listicle’. Lists usually have a bad reputation for covering asinine and cliché topics, but when done correctly, they can be a useful treasure trove of information. Just look at some of the top informative websites out there — there’s bound to be a few lists amongst their articles somewhere!
I greatly enjoy writing lists, either for informative and educational purposes, or to help market a product. When it comes to the former, I make sure that the ideas I pitch to editors are intriguing and information-rich. The goal is to write a list that doesn’t need a ‘clickbait’-styled title to get people to read it; the topic is enough!
