If there’s one piece of content I’m really scared to write, it’s satire.

If you can write something convincingly enough that people know it’s fake but they have some doubts you can find people sharing your story like crazy.

I’ve written more about it here.

Recently, Hackernoon contributor Lucas Roitman wrote about struggling to survive on a $250,000 salary.

The reason I think the piece worked so well is that you think there’s something ‘off’ about it when you’re reading, but you have to keep going to see if your suspicions are correct.

It’s so possibly true that you aren’t quite sure if you’re reading a serious piece.
