I would like to start a top10 of everything type blog,not just top 10s,but top any number,for example,top 10 animals I would least like to find in my garden when I got home,some serious some funny,some just.....
I was wondering if anyone would like to join in with such a project,profits could be split if it becomes successful.
I think a maximum of 5 people would be best as too many would mean too little monies to share around should there be more.
Oh and any ideas for a url would be helpful.
Just an idea.
Sounds like a great idea Truespeed. Wish I had more time available, as not sure I could be a reliable contributor along the lines you're visualizing. I could give it a bash however.
I like the name you've already used: Top10 or Top10-anything, Top10-ultimate, along those lines.
I want to avoid the number 10 in the url,just because they don't always have to be top 10s,or lists of 10 which would be a more accurate way of wording things,you could for example have "5 fictional detectives" or "45 US presidents".
With the url I think it would have to be a .com,I just thought of "listory" but it has already been taken,it is available in other extensions but ideally a .com would be best.
There are already quite a few of these type of sites out there,so they are popular,at the same time there is a lot of competition,but with a few outside of the box lists and cleverly worded titles I don't see why another couldn't be successful.
Shortlists is there for quite a few extensions,but sadly and inevitabley not .com.
Tidlist sounds good foumy. It would be easy to remember.
Two others I've thought about - but maybe they're taken:
So basically Cracked.com?
Along them lines yeah,there are lots of examples of those type of sites on the net,some more successful and better than others,there is plenty of room for another,if it is quality it will succeed.
I've noticed many of those list type sites tend to repeat themselves for copy from other sites. If you manage to create a site with a lot of good original content, you might be able to gain considerable traffic on your site.
Getting good content would be tricky and time consuming. Cracked.com has several full time writers and editors and any project hoping to compete would need dedicated writers. Good luck with this project!
