Listverse is a fascinating site that pretty much does one thing, it publishes cool ‘Top Ten’ lists. Everything from Top Ten Everyday Things We Forget to Ten Creepiest Spiders in Movies. And they pay for submissions: $100 per list to be exact.
It works like this: you write your list (1,000 words minimum – 10 items minimum), you send it in, we reply and say “great – we’ll publish it” and send you $100 by paypal (don’t have an account? just make one – it’s easy), or we reply and say “sorry – it isn’t the sort of thing our readers will love – give it an other shot”.

Listverse gets about 15 million visitors a month. If you have a blog, Twitter account or book you’d like to promote, they’ll even stick the info at the bottom of your post if it’s accepted. Time to make money from that fascination with ‘useless’ trivia!
