List25 combines the pursuit of interesting and intriguing facts with the innate human desire to rank and list things. From stereotypical cat pictures to crazy facts about the universe, every list is designed to help you kill time in the most efficient manner, all while giving you something to either laugh at or think about! Every day we release at least two new lists, one of which is a video.


While most sites publish top 10 lists or maybe even top 15, List25 was started because people wanted more. Top 25 lists are comprehensive; more in depth, and give more material to argue over (just read the comments). From its humble beginnings in 2011 up until now, List25 has served millions of hungry minds, has been mentioned in big publications like the New York Times, and is continuing to find new ways of consistently conciliating your curiosity.


We currently have over 1.5 million subscribers on our YouTube Channel, 276 thousand likes on Facebook, over 12.5 thousand followers on Twitter and over 24 thousand followers on Google +. You will also find us on Pinterest, Tumblr, Daily motion and Instagram (so be sure to follow us).

Who We Are

The boss of bosses; Syed Balkhi is a young entrepreneur with a thirst for world domination. At seven years old he created his first business and has been technically awesome ever since. After founding WPBeginner in 2009 (the largest free WordPress resource site), Balkhi co-founded List25 in 2011 as a venture to share and promote bizarre, informative, and innovative content. Under Balkhi’s leadership, List25 has grown to over 1.5 million subscribers with over a quarter of a billion video views on Youtube. In 2013, he launched OptinMonster; the best WordPress lead generation plugin, and has seen remarkable success with this venture.

Crystal coker about me List25

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Michael is a “go-with the flow” laid back kind of guy who has always enjoyed entertaining people. When not “edu-taining” the List25 fans/viewers, Michael can be found playing on Xbox LIVE (Gamertag: Merrai) or watching his favorite sports teams (Bucs, Gators, Nuggets, Predators and Rays). Follow his crazy antics on Twitter or Facebook.

Tristan FrowerSince he was eleven years old, Tristan has had a passion for all things film and video! He, alongside with his coworkers strives to consistently conciliate curiosity while doing his best to connect with the viewers. Tristan loves his job and wouldn’t want to be doing anything else!

Petr Habarta List25
Petr is our Czech, laid-back writer extraordinaire who holds a degree in English philology and has been working as a translator and copywriter. He loves nature, sports, travelling, meeting new people and is always curious and interested in happenings around the world and around him. Feel free to check him out on Facebook.

Theo Karassavvas
Theo is a highly opinionated and at times radical freelance writer of Greek and French origin. Even though he spent most of his youth reading comics, watching sci-fi movies, and playing video games, he somehow managed to learn three different languages other than his own and also graduate from the Law School of Athens. He later obtained a master’s degree in Legal History from the University of Pisa. He’s the equivalent of Chuck Norris in the freelancing industry and an absolute ace with his pen, so you better watch out if you dare to follow him on twitter at @TheodorosII.

Alex is a full-time freelance writer and occasional journalist who writes on psychology, politics (largely satire), and African tourism & business. He first came to List25 after falling in love with Tia (Juan’s greyhound) and later being introduced to the man behind the dog. As a monthly contributing writer, Alex pens articles on List25 primarily focused around science and entertainment. He currently tries to avoid the rain while living in the west of Ireland and brews beer at home as he plans his next big move. Alex Salamanca can be reached on LinkedIn and at his two Twitter accounts: @ElSalamanca & @AllNewAfrica.
