How to stand out in any niche using humor
So how do you write a joke? Get a piece of paper and write sixty weird or funny things about your content area (alternatively you can use a mind map).

If you can compare anything on your list to something in pop culture, do that too! Those posts (ex. ten ways that my content area is like The Hangover) are easily sharable and funny.
