A Hog Blog Listicle – Top Three Reasons I Hunt Hogs
April 25, 2014
Everybody, from newspapers to bloggers to television shows, is doing lists these days. I’m not sure who’s to blame, but it generally fits right in with all the other short attention-span media that’s flooding the general (un)consciousness. Really, they’re everywhere and they drive me nuts. Here are some examples from today’s scan of the Interwebz.
- 8 ways to know she’s cheating on you.
- 4 ways to spark up your love life.
- 7 foods to avoid if you want to lose weight.
- 50 ways to leave your lover.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that lists are a pretty easy way to get out of doing any real writing. Think about it. You don’t have to worry about complex themes, paragraph construction, transitions, or even complete sentences! They’re perfect for the writer who:
- Lacks motivation
- Lacks inspiration
- Lacks time
- Lacks writing ability
So what the hell. I’ll do it too. Here’s a graphical list of the top three reasons I hunt hogs.
