Today I’m sharing tips for listing!
Hey listers! I'm @megan_nerdnest and I'm here to take over the #30lists Instagram for a few days. If I'm counting right, this is my 16th round listing and I'm still as in love with it as ever. Over on my Instagram, I share a daily tip with the hashtag #nndailytip using a different theme each week. I thought it would be fun to bring that here with tips for listing! It's inspiring and fun to see how everyone else is listing, but don't let comparisons get you down: there's no wrong way to list! I've used lots of different methods: various minibooks, pocket scrapping, tags, traveler's notebooks, etc. Sometimes I include photos, sometimes I get messy, sometimes I just jot down a list on a card. I fit how I'm listing to what's going on in my life and what I'd like to experiment with at the time! How does listing fit for you right now? #30daysoflists
When we say that there's no wrong way to list, we mean it! 30 Days of Lists doesn't have to mean consecutive days or daily listing if that doesn't work for you (though everyone has time to write a list!) This round, I've been doing two lists every other day so I can print two 3×3 photos on one 4×6 paper. Working in batches can sometime be more achievable! – @megan_nerdnest #nndailytip #30lists #30daysoflists
I shared Lists 9-19 on my blog today, which is helpful to anyone who actually wants to read them, because my handwriting is pretty illegible–hah! I'm also sharing some #nndailytip posts about lists on the @30daysoflists account. Here's one for here: don't sweat mistakes on your lists! A great thing about this exercise is that it is informal and relaxed, so even if you are a perfectionist on other projects, this is a place to practice letting go. I flubbed my format on this list, I catch a spelling mistake every time I type lists up for a blog post, and I'm incapable of being consistent with capitalizing (or not) the first word in list bullets. All of that is okay! It's the content and the process that matters. #30lists
Looking for more ways to add listing into your memory keeping routine? Try #currentlylist cards from @the_awesome_ladies_project ! Whether you are filling them out weekly or sporadically, they're a great way to document things going on in your life that might not be represented in your photos. #nndailytip
Looking for a fun listing activity to tide you over between the September round and the December round? Try making a list that you add to a bit each day for October or November! This is a 31 Scary Days list I made for October–I did one last year too! I wrote down a scary book, movie, or activity I did each day. A good November list would be to add something you are thankful for each day. Have you tried listing over a longer period of time like this? – @megan_nerdnest #nndailytip #30lists
Thanks so much for hanging out with me over the past few days! One more listing #nndailytip before I go–make sure to go back and read your past lists from time to time! You might be surprised to see how you've changed and what's stayed the same. You might even find a few lists you'd like to repeat now and integrate into other forms of memory keeping! – @megan_nerdnest #30lists #30daysoflists
