    Hey Ben,

    awesome list of lists! Lots of interesting stuff. Especially, I like the “10 tips for creating compelling web copy”. It is funny and has some great content.

    Well, do not know if you consider it a list but I frequently write about the Best WordPress Plugins. But it is not one huge list but many segmented lists: e.g. review plugins, seo plugins, popup plugins, slideshow plugins. And new categories are added each week.

    Anyways, thanks for the post

    Greetings from Germany
