We all know that magazines love articles with numbers in the title, for example 5 Easy Ways to Lose Weight or 10 Things to Do in Paris.

Listverse is a website with a similar penchant for numbered lists. It publishes lists of 10 linked items, each article must have a minimum word count of 1000. The site pays $100 by PayPal for each list published.

The lists can be about absolutely anything and range from general knowledge and current affairs to the totally bizarre. Some of the titles I spotted were:

  • 10 Modern-Day Exorcisms
  • 10 Sets of People Who Were Switched at Birth
  • 10 Craziest Things Done by Philosophers
  • 10 Brutal North Korean Secrets
  • 10 Fascinating Facts About Bears

The site is split into the following sections:

  • Bizarre
  • Entertainment
  • General Knowledge
  • Lifestyle
  • Science
  • Society

There is such a wide remit here that I’m sure I must be able to think of something to write and send in but my mind has gone a total blank – except for that ‘To Do’ list waiting for me on the kitchen work top!

If you’re more inspired than me the full submission guidelines for Listverse are here.
