Are you tired of list posts?
I could write another boring list post, but then I would have to change my title 🙂
I’d like to be popular and have a big audience, but my inner muse doesn’t want to follow the rules for blogging success and write another boring how to list blog post. Yet the average reader seems to want, even love, how to list posts. How to posts continue to be some of the most popular posts, used routinely on successful blogs like Copyblogger, The Bridgemaker, Meant To Be Happy, Think Traffic and more.
We seem to want to be told what to do. We want simpler lives. We are looking for the condensed easy version, ready to go, no thinking required, formula for life. Many people fear the mystery and unknown, trying to avoid risk by following formulas for success in life, business, health or dating. I would give you the magic formula, but it’s lost in all my how to posts. All I have is my truth, inspiration and unique perspective on life. Plus if I told you, I’d have to delete you.
You won’t find any lists in this post for the following reasons.
- I’m allergic to them.
- You deserve better posts.
- We are all unique, even when we imitate each other.
- The muse is on vacation.
- Are you laughing, crying or mad?
Yes I broke the rules, used run on sentences and mixed viewpoints from I to you to we and back to me. Sometimes a guy just wants to have fun.
Meanwhile, back to my rant. Just don’t do it! Say no to boring list posts.
Be creative, find your own voice and say hello to your inner muse. Try something new. Do you hear the collective sigh of relief? Creatives everywhere are celebrating.
How did I do? Was this fun? Are you inspired to write your own post? Will you ever visit my blog again? Inquiring writers want to know.
Please share the happy juice, comment and do all that social media stuff.
