Now this is my kind of challenge: one I’ve already done. Not only have I written a list post, I’ve written a bunch of them. So this step on the ProBlogger Challenge will be easier than most!
Over the years I learned something from my speaking engagements. Whenever you start giving out a numbered list of any kind, people start taking notes. It doesn’t really matter what you’re saying or how important it is. If you start listing things, people assume that what’s coming is really good stuff and they pay attention. (My upcoming book is titled 7 Success Habits of Homeschoolers. I’m serious about lists!)
For better or worse, the same is true on a blog. People love lists, so writing list posts is a generally great idea. My biggest surprise with this challenge is to note that I haven’t written as many as I thought on Pix2Brix. Here is my list of list posts (heh heh):
- 12 Most Annoying Home Features
- 8 Cool Features for Your Next Custom Home
- 8 Features of Great Custom Cabinets
Today I’ll add another for good measure. Come on over and read my latest list post “Best Toys: 60 Educational Family Games.”
