3 kinds of list post you can choose

There are a variety of ways of incorporating lists into your blog. Depending
upon the topic and style of blog you’re building, some of these options might
be appropriate for you:
1. The post as a list—in this case there’s nothing in the post except for
the list. The title of your post introduces the topic and then the list
speaks for itself. The list can be quite bare bones—short and to the
point. However, readers often like them because of their bluntness and
the way they tell it like it is. Example: 21 Ways to Write Posts that are
Guarantees to Grow Your Blog.
2. Extended lists—this is how I generally approach list posts. I’ll show
you a couple of examples below but in a sense this type of post is
similar to an essay or article, except the main points are broken down
into a numbered list format. Generally, there’s a heading for each
section (highlighted in bold or with heading tags) with a paragraph or
two under each one. Example: 10 Ways to Take Stunning Portraits.
3. Lists within posts—the post you’re reading right now probably best
illustrates this type. In this post there are two lists that present ideas in
the midst of other content. In a sense the list becomes a way of
breaking up your text. I find that often these posts do quite well, as
other bloggers looking for a quote to share with their readers will go to
your list.
Some bloggers do, at times, become a little anti list, suggesting it’s an
overused technique and a lazy way to write—but this need not always be the case. There’s nothing to stop a blogger developing an in-depth list post for almost any blog.
List posts will not suit everyone’s style and probably are harder to use with
some blog topics than others, but they are a useful style of post to have in
your tool belt for when the opportunity arises.


Why List Posts are Powerful for Bloggers

List posts are popular because:just see what is the most pop bookmark in delicious.com:

so facts tell you the turth,why we should make list posts:
1. Lists are to the point—online readers are notoriously lazy and tend to
scan content rather than read it word for word. A list helps
communicate a number of points quickly and easily, and helps readers
know if a post contains information of interest to them that they should
actually read more of.
2. Lists keep posts are simple—there is something about a list that keeps
you as a blogger from rambling. Each point has a start and end,
whereas with an essay style of writing, points often bleed into one
3. Lists look neat—I don’t know about you but when I surf onto a site
that’s full of messily formatted text I tend to keep my stay short. Lists,
on the other hand, can be visually pleasing and more likely to stimulate
4. Lists can be comprehensive—while some might argue that lists dumb
down ideas and concepts, when written well they are actually just as
comprehensive as any other style of writing.
5. Lists are persuasive—if you want to mount a case quickly, presenting
numerous arguments in a list can be quite convincing. Again, it’s about
identifiable points that together go to forming a convincing argument.
6. Lists can add to the ease of writing—I like writing in lists because
they break down my thoughts into bite-sized pieces, which is good for
my readers and me as a writer, as I consider how to express myself.
7. Lists go viral—lists can start epidemics of ideas. For the above
reasons and more, bloggers and social media aficionados seem to love
sharing lists and, as a result, they spread quickly throughout the web
(and beyond).
8. Lists break down the complicated—one reason I find list posts to be
powerful is that they can break down complex ideas or tasks. I know
on my photography blog that many of our Photoshop tutorials work
best when our authors present their instructions as steps; that way, a
procedure that can at first seem overwhelming becomes accessible as a
list of bite-sized tasks.
Warning: limit your list posts. They can be incredibly powerful but readers
can become frustrated with them if that is all you do.
