Community Driven List Posts: A Tool for Bloggers

social media toolsMost bloggers quickly discover that posts that contain lists are popular.

Unfortunately, list posts usually require a lot of work to write and are rarely updated after they’re published.

What if there was an easy way to create list posts and keep them up to date?

List.ly can help you do this. Plus List.ly offers you a welcome bit of social interaction.

Create a Community-Driven List Post

List.ly is a collaborative list-building tool. You create the initial list on the List.ly website and you can embed it as part of your blog post. Embedding means that it appears as if it’s in your blog post, but it still resides on List.ly.

What’s cool is that your community can then add and/or vote for items on the list. This can be a useful tool to engage with your community and discover more about their interests.
