It’s simply straight the point, great list Darren! I’ve read the “Write a List Post”, and would try to come out a list post this 2 days. Learn something new today. :)
I love lists and this list is outstanding. I especially like the write something opinionated because many people tend to write things that are watered down so as not to alienate the readers.
The brevity is refreshing, especially since it’s useful and not random bits of fluff.
I hate those lists that are basically just numbered paragraphs–what’s the point.

great ideas, i’ve been thinking of other niche i can write about aside from travel, i think my domain had limited already the things i can write about but the most important one is to write something that is useful to people.
Great tips. The simplicity with which you wrote this one reminds me of another one.
Put your tips in a list.
I think most people appreciate simplicity. That’s why Zen Habits is such a popular blog.
This is a great way to work my way out of a writers block, using this list its easy to prioritize my articles, thanks for the information
Hey i wonder if i added a video introduction to my about me page, would that be much better?
