September Journaling: 30 Days of Lists returns!

30lists kam30 Days of Lists is returning!

So very soon! Registration will be open in a month (August 4, actually. Be sure you’re on the mailing list for first news).

Last week Kam and I had a Skype chat (3 hours!) to talk about details, dates, and how to make this round of Listing even more special!

(I’ve already grabbed what I need to make my list book. Going to be EASY this round!)

This is now the 10th round of listing we have done together – and each time is just as new and just as fun! We love how many of you have joined us time and again!

Registration opens Monday, August 4, but in the meantime we have so much to do! Coordinating with sponsors and affiliates (spots filled the first day), lining up the exclusive designed products for registered Listers, writing all the email blasts to remind you when to register, adding inspiration to our Pinterest board … and on and on.

I can’t wait! Running 30 Days of Lists twice a year is both a roller coaster of adrenaline and oddly comforting. We’ve been doing this since early 2011 …. which is a century in internet time! You can see my previous #30Lists posts here or follow the hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.

Don’t forget to sign up for the email list to get first news of registration August 4.

#30Lists Blog Hop! Free prompt and ideas

30 Days of Lists Blog Hop

Thanks so much for joining us on the #30Lists blog hop!

Kam and I and our #30Lists Ambassadors are hosting a blog hop today – we’re each sharing a bonus list prompt on our blogs and hope to motivate more Listers to join us this March AND inspire current Listers with examples of what we will be sharing with you throughout the month.

We’re revisiting list prompts from the (100% free) March 2011 30 Days of Lists challenge.

Are you ready to get started?

I decided to re-list books I want to read this year. Here is where I originally posted this list back in March 2011

#30Lists free prompt

Confession: I still haven’t read a good chunk of these books. I read about 400 million books, just not all of these.

So here is my new list for 2014 ….

Books I’d Like to Read This Year:

And (obviously) dozens more…. Obviously.

What books are you going to read this year?

Make sure you check out the rest of the Blog Hop….

Simply click on one of the links below and get started – all of our posts are linked, so you will be able to click through to each blogger’s list.

Ready for 30lists March 2014!!?

30Lists  063We are so excited to announce (officially) that this March 2014 will be the NINTH round of the 30 Days of Lists challenge!! I had to double check my count! I can’t believe it’s been so long! The first one, way back in March 2011, is still available for free here, and all the others since then you can pick up here.

This March’s challenge is going to be a good one – we’ve chosen the prompts and invited the ambassadors. We have so much fun pairing up list prompts with obscure “holidays” so there’s a good mix this round. So many Listers joined us for our special December round and we’re hoping for even more to join the community this time around.

What else? Pre-registration opens NEXT MONDAY!! I can’t believe it’s coming up so fast!

So, mark your calendars for Monday, February 10 to grab your spot! We’ll be sending more details in the next few days, so make sure you’re on our list!

We are SUPER excited for you to join us! Listing your month is one of the EASIEST and low-key ways to tell your ‘right now’ story!

Can’t wait! Sign-up here to get on the #30Lists mailing list!

I haven’t yet decided how I’m going to be listing this round – thinking about a small book from my scrap stash, or a Blurb book or a really really simple Project Life insert. Any other ideas for me?

30 Days of Lists December! Blog hop!

December starts on Sunday!!

December of 2013. I cannot even wrap my brain around how fast time is moving right now.

Are you ready? I personally haven’t done any holiday shopping or decorating and I only *just* bought the potatoes that I need for Thanksgiving this week.

But, my 30 Days of Lists book is ready! I’ll show you guys a peek tomorrow.

TODAY: Kam and I and our ambassadors are doing a blog hop today, profiling our favorite prompts from the March 2011 30Lists challenge. All of that challenge’s prompts are still available for free, so feel free to click over to see the rest.

If you still want more list prompts, you can grab any one of the previous challenges as a self-paced download. Choose each set of lists one-at-a-time or get all 5 of them together.

That’s a total of 150 listing prompts!

For today’s list highlight, I chose ‘Vacations to Take’. This list was written back in March 2011, but still totally accurate and fun. I’m totally obsessed with travel and that’s one of the reasons I work so hard to be self-employed and keep my schedule flexible. I need to go EVERYWHERE!

30Lists  028

My list is rather long since I am in love with travel. Now that my schedule is way more flexible I have the time – I just don’t have the money. As of March 2011 when I made this list, I wanted to go to:

  • Washington DC
  • Pacific Coast road trip
  • Midwest road trip
  • New York City
  • Philadelphia + Boston
  • Ireland
  • France (Normandy + Paris)
  • Amsterdam
  • Spain
  • Japan
  • Australia + New Zealand
  • Yellowstone
  • Yosemite
  • and much more

Since then, we have traveled to Colorado, Wisconsin, Yosemite and have tentative New Zealand plans. Still a lot more to go!

Journaling prompts for December – Registration Open

Now’s the time!december

Join us in December for a BRAND NEW round of 30 Days of Lists. Another quick journaling challenge. Another opportunity to record YOUR STORY. And the perfect, EASY way to record your holiday season. The list prompts in December are NOT holiday specific, but you can absolutely interpret them to go with whatever your family celebrates.

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 December 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!

That’s all.

Just write.

There’s no wrong way to do this and if you don’t like a prompt on a certain day, just change it.
