Use List.ly to Your Advantage

Creating lists is simple. Go to the list.ly site and click create a ‘new list’, then put in a name and description. Then start adding your content. It's that simple. Be sure to use the advanced options to enter tags, a header image and links back to your website. If you want to embed this list on your site - I say yes, but please add the link below in the comments so that I can view it.

Embed Your Lists on Your Blog

Embed Your Lists on Your Blog
