Listverse Offers $100 For Your Lists (You know, if they like it)

This might be old news to everyone, but I thought I'd share just in case. Listverse apparently pays you $100 via Paypal if they publish your list, and there's a chance to randomly win $2000 in November. Disclaimers: 1. I'm still working on a submission, so I can't tell you if this is legit. There ARE a lot of lists up there, but since we all know that content can be bought very cheaply, just keep that in mind. 2. Your English skills must be absolutely good. 3. Read their guidelines carefully. They do seem to have all the information you need there. Mainly, articles must be at least 1000 words, and 10 items are suggested for your list. They want quirky new perspectives, and they tell you straight up what they don't like. If anyone here as experience with Listverse, I'm sure we'd love to hear about your experience.

It sounds good but I never heard of it. What kind of lists are they looking for?

This is directly from their information page: "To help you out with some ideas the lists our readers love the most (and the ones we will mostl likely pay for) are: offbeat, looking at something normal in an unexpected way (Top 10 Ways College Make You Dumb, for example... misconceptions, facts, and just really good general knowledge about anything - science, for example." They are also offering an additional hundred to the five most popular posts at the end of the month. I've also heard that Listverse wants complete rights to your article, but you can link it to your website or blog.

I love this website. I even have an RSS feed for its content. I love to read lists and Listverse is one website that is bookmarked on my browser. I didn't know they pay such a large amount for content. $100 is a lot of money for a list. And they want at least a list of 10 items which means that each item should have at least 100 words to reach the minimum of 1000 words per list. It's a good avenue to earn money.
