Listicles are the new thing

Or have been for some time.

Yes, it’s kinda tacky.  Internet snack food.  And I’ll be obliged to write in detailed narrative, if only for myself.  But when time or a perfect transition sentence is absent, a listicle isn’t bad.

My internet news addiction probably only spans a few years, and in that time I’ve been a fan of Susannah Breslin.  In her pieces at Forbes woman, she basically writes in bullet points.

As far as content, listicles are an oblique tool in search optimization.  There’s probably a million dollar idea out there that will be realized with a good listicle method.  I wouldn’t mind knowing what that idea is.
