Listicle

Listicle

Ever hear of a listicle? I know I didn’t until last week. When I looked up the definition, I discovered, much to my surprise, that my Blog post last Monday entitled “Eastern Europe” was indeed a “listicle.” Here is the definition according to Wikipedia:

“In journalism and blogging, a listicle is a short-form of writing that uses a list as its thematic structure, but is fleshed out with sufficient copy to be published as an article.” Obviously it is a word composed from list and article. Who knew? I did know that it was an efficient form for conveying information, and, unknowingly I think I used the format once before when I wrote about candles. I’m sure I’ll use it again.

And, by the way, I want to add an item to last week’s “Eastern Europe.” Most annoying: hordes of tourists.
