ProBlogger Podcast Challenge: Write an Amazing List Post

Day two of our 31 day challenge begins with a simple post idea that you can create easily, and is popular with readers – a double bonus for bloggers! The podcast is now live for you to get details of the challenge here (or on iTunes and Stitcher).

Note: If you missed it, day one was about crafting the perfect elevator pitch for your blog.

In today’s episode we go over the seven reasons list posts are so important, and some of the different kinds of list posts that can be produced (like this one, for example).

You can make a list post for just about every niche of blogging there is! You can also stick with a straight list, an extended list, or a half-essay-half list post – whatever works for your audience. We also chat about how curated lists featuring other bloggers can build relationships and help expand your online presence.

The show notes include links to some popular list posts and examples for you to check out when creating your own. It’s one of the fastest ways to create trending, shareable content, and we’ve got all you need to know in today’s show.
