How NOT to make money or get a gazillion views in your first month of blogging – or even your first six years!! Why? Why are so many bloggers’ lives so skewed towards making money quickly or getting a gazillion views/followers in a short amount of time? I am getting quite tired of seeing all these types of posts. Pinterest is…

I have just returned from a week long self-imposed social media ban. We have been off on a little adventure and before I left I decided that I would use the time away as a break from everything. I warned my family that I would be offline and that I wouldn’t blog, I wouldn’t engage in my usual social media…
I love lists
I love making a list and then crossing off things on my list as they get done. I admit that I will sometimes add things to a list just so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing them off. Is there a word for people who like making lists? I just did a quick search and couldn’t find one, if you know such a word, please let me know.
When crossing off items on my lists I use the strike through method whereas others use the tick method. I like the feeling of crossing out the item, it makes it more complete to me. What do you do?
When thinking about a list of my favourite lists I came up with this:
- To do list
- Completed jobs list
- Shopping list
- Guest list
- Wish list
- Bucket list
- Movies to watch list
- Books to read list
- Christmas list
- Places to visit list
- Questions to ask list
- Notes for blog list
- Friends list
I’m sure I’ll think of more lists and I’ll update my list as they come to me. That’s another thing I like to do. At least you can’t call me a listless person!!
