I am a Lister:
I am a lister. It’s an addiction. Embrace it and it becomes a way of life.
Lists have the amazing ability to break down even the most complex ideas into tiny little parts so you can understand the details. Lists are simple to make, but have endless possibilities. Adding some art & design into the mix makes listing a hobby that is both productive and creative.
Creative lists are perfect for me — I’m equally right brained and left brained, so my logic side gets to have all the words written down in a neat format and my creative side gets to make that list really fun to write and look at.
My personal goal for this year is to write more and I’m excited that 30 Days of Lists will help me accomplish that goal. Writing doesn’t have to be in perfect prose, it doesn’t have to be long-form essays with perfect sentence structure. Writing is about getting your ideas out on paper, using the written word to communicate your thoughts. Listing is a great way to get your thoughts and ideas out on paper without the burden of grammar, punctuation, and all the stuff you’re ‘supposed’ to worry about when writing.
Join me and the rest of the #30Lists community this March as we once again take on the 30 Days of List challenge!
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.

Start stocking up on your sticky-notes, ordering notebooks from your favorite online sellers, or creating a journal of your own to house your lists, March 1st will be here before we know it.
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.
Also, it isn’t too early to get to know your fellow Listers!
Speaking of the list prompts, they will be available on a daily basis shortly after 2:00 a.m. Pacific time. If you would rather have all of the lists at once, feel free to print them out in the ‘Printables Section’ of the private blog.
