Seeking knowledge or facts not even Wikipedia can provide you? Looking for a site that will post the articles you wrote? There are various sites that can do that. One of them is Listverse(.com). As its name suggests, it supplies a list of facts they find “most fascinating.” They focus on facts that “intrigue and educate, specializing in the bizarre or lesser- known trivia.” They are constantly at work, providing new, unique lists in a variety of categories, from art & literature to science & nature on a regular basis. They pay reasonably well too and do so promptly that earned them even more respect. Here are five other sites like Listverse if you are into writing or searching for information.
This site is the online version of the magazine of the same name founded in 1958. It is considered a virtual writer’s room where over 2,000 amateur writers pitch articles and the site has a staff of editors and proofreaders to evaluate them before it gets published. It also includes a blog, videos, forums, a writer’s workshop, five weekly Image Manipulation contests called Photoplasty, and small, one-shot articles called “Quick Fixes”.
Buzzfeed is an Internet media, news and entertainment company focusing primarily on digital media. BuzzFeed produces content on a regular basis, in which the work of staff reporters, contributors, syndicated cartoon artists, and its community are featured. They post lists, videos, and quizzes. It has evolved into posting traditional news content, creating a reputation for posting breaking news and other articles worth the attention.
According to their profile on Facebook, Knowable is “dedicated to publishing interesting fact-based content and true stories of human kindness, compassion and achievement, and all things worth knowing. We highlight personal confessions, professional secrets, and a wide variety of human interest stories.” The caveat of reading (and even contributing) material from this site is that the content tends to foment intrigue and gossip, and shows writers’ biases, stuff that would not be accepted in mainstream media sites.
As its name suggests, they publish informative articles and list posts just like Listverse. Unlike other sites, that do not do a quality control of the articles posted, they make sure posts are engaging and interesting to read. The material posted can sometimes border on the bizarre and unbelievable, comparable to those posted in tabloids.
According to its website, they “aggregate all of the top news and information in real time. Our editors have carefully crafted each topic with the best sources allowing you to see what’s happening quickly and from trusted sources.” They are subscribed to most mainstream media companies from where they get news items worth publishing from CNN to Wired. You can also find a lot of other list websites, like Best Movies Lists on TheVore.com or Best Book Lists on Goodreads.com.
