I am a Lister
My name is Megan and I AM A LISTER! In my daily life, I need lists. I always have running lists of projects to make, things to do, groceries to buy, things to pack, blog posts to write…. without lists, I’d loose it. These lists are life documenting in themselves, because they give a peak into my daily life, but 30 Days of Lists takes something that I do everyday without thinking about it–making lists–and turns it into a doable memory keeping exercise!
I participated in both the March and September 2012 list challenges and I was instantly hooked. I love that the #30Lists prompts get me to think about things I wouldn’t otherwise document. I love the excuse to make a cute minibook. I love the community and seeing a peak into others’ lives! And I’m super wordy, so I love that lists enable me to skip that element of my personality so I can get in a lot of great info with a reasonable time commitment.
I love being a Lister!
Now’s the time!
We’d love for you to join us in March for another round of 30 Days of Lists. Another quick journaling challenge. Another opportunity to record YOUR STORY.
Not everyone can make a mini scrapbook every week or an art journal page every night.
30 Days of Lists is our encouragement and challenge to you that you CAN journal just something every day- even something as small as a list.
Every day through the month of March 2013, we will be posting a list prompt – anything from weekend goals to celebrity crushes. At the end of the 30 days you’ll have a collection of entries creating a small snapshot of your life right now.
Only 5-10 minutes per day are really needed. While you’re waiting for someone, or when you’re the passenger in the car. You can even download the list topics ahead of time to get a jump start!
There’s no wrong way to do this and if you don’t like a prompt on a certain day, just change it.
What does registration include?
Once you register you will receive an automatically downloadable file giving you access to the private blog for March 2013’s 30 Days of Lists.

The daily list prompts won’t start until March 1st, but you can trust us when we say that it’s an excellent idea to check the private blog regularly between now and then for tutorials, updates, and maybe a giveaway or two.
