Have you discovered the awesomeness that are blog lists yet, no? Well here’s 5 reasons why blog lists are useful.
1. They require less writing time
Think of your shopping lists – they’ve never turned into novels have they? They shouldn’t do…
2.They are quick to read for your audience
Online readers have short attention spans so lists are the solution.
3. Less content means more writing material for future blog posts
Blog block? Lists don’t require much information so you can expand in greater detail in future blog posts.
4. You can mind map more of them at one given time
With blogs lists, I recommend mind mapping the structure out to ensure it ticks all of the right boxes. However list blogs don’t need this so you can throw as many lists together much quicker!
5. Even blog lists can be varied
There are different types of blog lists: brief lists i.e. bullet points, detailed lists i.e. like this post and hybrid lists which are a combination of the two.
Essentially, blog lists are used to vary and shorten content up to keep it varied. I wouldn’t recommend having an entire blog full of lists because there’s a lot of use for other types of posts which I’ll tell you more about this month.
Activity: Aim to post a list based post once a month (or more if you’ve a spare 15 minutes).
