Beyond The List

You may have already noticed that I chose a very narrow niche for this blog: mock analysis of news and politics in lists of 10 supposedly funny jokes.  However, occasionally I write something that, in my opinion, deserves to be posted, but just does not fit the List of X niche, no matter how hard I try to squeeze it in.  Thankfully, there are other bloggers who are kind enough to adopt these misfit posts as guest posts on their blogs.  Although, giving some support to my “deserved to be posted” claim, WordPress had featured two of these guest posts on Freshly Pressed page, as opposed to nothing on this blog.

If you like my posts on List of X, you might like these guest posts too.  And definitely check out these great blogs that have so graciously accepted my work:

Because I love giving unsolicited advice to people about what they should or shouldn’t do, I wrote several posts for the The Official How To Blog:

Finally, I wrote over 20 posts that are almost completely free of all political and news-related content, but hopefully not completely free of humor, for the Army of Awesome People.  A few of these posts:

Six Hit Songs That Make Absolutely No Sense,

9 Ways To Make Your Own Funeral Fun (featured on Freshly Pressed),

    Hello, List of X – Wanted to let you know I’m going to do a very short post about passports in the next couple of days, and I’m going to add your comment about scanning your passport and emailing it to yourself. My post will by no means be as witty as your normal posts, but informative and something that will help my readers. Full credit to you, of course. Cheers, Deborah

      Yes, I’m not letting myself out of the “List of 10 on current events” cage for this blog, which means if I write anything that doesn’t fit the standard, it can’t be posted on List of X. So something like a quarter of my posts were posted as guest posts somewhere else. And sure, if you give me an idea, I will be happy to try to write another post for you.

  6. Hi! This is Baldscientist, long time no “talk”! I was having fun with some friend on FB about the kinds of things that Trump may announce to distract us from the Russian scandal. I suggested, that he will announce that Roswell was real and the extraterrestrials are here. A friend came up with the announcement that they captured the chupacabra, and another one said that he will announce the zombie apocalypse. Feel free to use these and add 7 more!!! Greetings!!!!!
