Writing Tips: This Week’s Most Popular Writing Articles

I’m constantly fascinated by the dynamics of what makes content go viral. Why are some articles so popular and others, well, less so. It’s really interesting to understand – standard advice says it’s the headlines, or the imagery, or the writer’s on-line presence but when you distil that down into 140 characters on Twitter the playing field is equalized a little. I’m still analysing and will let you know when I come to a solid conclusion but in the meantime here are this week’s most popular articles as dictated by my lovely Tweeps and Google+ circles.
