Apparently the seventh idea, lists, worked because it had 190 comments and a gazillion shares on all of the networks.

The moral of the story? Write lists!

But that’s not my point. The comments were full of more really good ideas. Here are 10 additional ideas to spark comments and shares:

1. Book reviews: Bhaskar Sarma suggests writing book reviews. He says, “Posts based around a book can be full of win. If that book is a must read in your industry, doing something as simple as summing up the key points or at least doing a review can easily give you 500-700 words. And, if you can tie in the lessons of the book with real world examples, then that’s frosting on top of the cake.”

2. Rants: John McTigue says he loves a good rant, both to read and write. He says, “I really enjoy a good rant, especially when it’s packed with both humor and enough facts to back up your position. Mostly, I love writing one every now and then. Don’t want to be too much of a whiner, but a well-placed kick in the chops goes a long way with me.”
