Whether you call them list articles or “listicles,” you’ve almost certainly seen your share of web content pieces with lists at the center. You probably know that they’re popular, and met with a bit of derision from time to time, you may not know why they work. Before you discount the idea of using list format posts for your blog, take a moment to consider all of the reasons why they’re so popular.
Even if the list article is something of a guilty pleasure for more “serious” readers, they’re still one of the most popular forms of web content out there and do have the ability to make a very real impact. If you’re looking for a quick, easy way to share content and communicate a particular point, consider the power of the list article for your next blog post.
