I stumbled upon a cool book/journal over the weekend, and discovered there's a website as well. The book is Listography Journal: A Life in Lists. Listography is explained by its creators:

"Listography provides users (listographers) of all ages an easy-to-use tool for creative list writing and sharing. Through list making, you can simultaneously create timelines and shape an autobiography. Therefore, your listography is a perpetual work in progress, a time capsule you can share, and perhaps a map of your life for friends and family." describes, "This quirky and imaginative guided journal is the ultimate tool for creating a unique autobiography entirely in list form. Some lists are obvious (greatest accomplishments, best friends, favorite food), others obscure (guiltiest pleasures, greatest acts of kindness, personal fashion trends)..."

I am crazy about lists, and I know many of my friends are as well. There is something blissfully satisfying about creating lists, and then checking items off as you go. Half the time I make a list simply for the act of creating it, with no real intention of actually following it in any way! The journal would make an excellent gift, and list topics would also make for great conversation starters.

The website follows the same premise, but allows you to make the lists online, saved in a profile if you choose. You can also read other users' lists; I found a fun one titled "Things I Might Name My Future Cat." In honor of listography, here a list...

The List of Types of Lists I Like to Make:

  1. To-do
  2. Books to Read
  3. Movies to See
  4. Topics to Blog About
  5. People to Call
  6. Pro/Con
  7. Needed School Supplies
  8. Future Craft Projects
Happy list making!
