Ever since I started blogging, a few years back, I've written all kinds of posts and have been able to see which ones drive more traffic and grow my amount of readers. There are a few posts that are a hit with readers, and it is about those kinds of posts I will be talking about today.
P.S.: I've created a Pinterest group board for bloggers! If you're interested, click here and follow the instructions on the board description!
List posts are always popular because they are easy for viewers to read and process. These kinds of posts are one of the easiest ones to write as you don't have to develop a topic, just write it and that's it: perfect for those days when you have very little time to blog.
