The List of Lists Blog Hop

DiggRedditPrintShare

This week’s blog hop is a very popular topic: Lists!!! Lists are one of the best ways to drum up blog traffic IF they are done right.

How to do a blog post of lists

List posts work because the headline pulls you in and grabs your attention. You must learn more about that topic and the headline beckons to you. For example:

Numbers have appeal and your readers will come back for me if you deliver on the attention-grabbing headline. Tell me something, solve a problem, and make the click worth it!
