    The 7 Keys to List Posts that Are Worth Writing (and Reading)

    A lot of smart writers can’t stand list posts. What’s a list post? It’s also known as a numbered list post, or a (shudder) listicle, and it’s a post whose headline features a numbered collection of things. This post, for example, is a list post. There are an awful lot of crummy ones out there. The celebrity sites make frequent use of them (These 17 Celebrities Used to Be Hot, etc.). In fact, all of the CRaP blogs use them liberally. So it’s natural that a quality-focused content wri...

    BuzzFeed laid off its Director of Quizzes because lots of people are willing to make quizzes for free

    The impact of the deeper-than-expected multi-day cuts to BuzzFeed continue, with more layoffs being announced via tweet, with more of today’s seeming to come from the buzz side of the operation rather than the news side (which was hit hard on Friday).

    Why the Best Content Happens Fast

    This is an imperfect but helpful idea. Sometimes, content requires a substantial time investment. Benchmark reports, ebooks, data analysis, etc., can’t be useful with significant research and editing. In this case, time invested correlates with quality but not necessarily performance.

    The Future of Content Marketing: It’s Not What You Think

    Have you heard the saying, “content is king?” Well, of course, you have. But creating more content won’t necessarily get you more search traffic. You’ve heard people like me mention stats like the average piece of content that ranks on page one of Google contains 1,890 words.
