a year in lists (52 weeks, 52 lists)


I have been dreaming up this idea for a couple of weeks now and I am soooo excited to share it with yall!!!

Starting this coming Sunday (June 5th) I am going to be adding a new feature on my blog, for a whole year! It's called 52 lists, 52 weeks. (Because I am in love with creating lists!)

I got the inspiration while checking out different sites. My sources of inspiration are from here and then here.... While I love these ideas, this feature is different (please keep that in mind). I merely used these sites as inspiration. :)

The whole idea of the feature:

Each Sunday I will be posting a new list here on my blog. And I want YOU to create your own version of the weekly list and then share it so we can all see.

This feature will also include:
-Featured guest posts from blogger pals with their own lists for us to create that week

-Fun lists to create, like "things other people probably don't know about me" or "things i wish i knew 5 years ago" (plus many, many more!)

-a fun flickr group for you to upload your photos to, so we can share there as well!

-a variety of ways to share your lists. I will include different ways myself, from creating handmade lists in a fun notebook (which I purchased at this etsy store)

or simply typing my lists online and sharing a snapshot with yall. Plus many more ways (and all of which will be shown here on my blog weekly and on the flickr group).

Remember, this starts next Sunday and will continue for a year!!! I think it will give us bloggers a great way to interact, show our creative sides and encourage each other! Plus, it's free and fun!!

Please let me know in the comment section if you plan on joining, so we can start linking blogs! And don't forget to also join the flickr group!!


See you in a couple of days!

xoxo
Kel

Would love to join if it's not too late - thanks!

Angela O. said...

I'm going to join in, but in addition to your list topic of the week, I'm adding my own twist: the whole year will be focused on life balance, so it'll be "My Life Balance Lists". I'm trying to be more creative and less work focused, AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE making lists and crossing things off, so I'm really excited about this project. Thanks for the great idea!

louise... said...

Definitely joining in! alhtough i think i'm a week behind x

Vic said...

This is such a cool idea! The perfect way to feed my obsessive need to make lists about EVERYTHING. Bit behind but I'm sure that won't matter x

What an amazing idea!

I just finished a Ralph Waldo Emerson writing challenge and would love to do this. Do I have to wait until this round is finished, or can I play now?

Thank you ... enjoy your day!

Wow---I love lists! I've been reading my sister-in-law, Debbie (The Quilter's Table) blog and she has been doing your 52 Lists since the beginning. I feel like I need to start at week one...and since this is the New Year I think I that is where I'll start. Thanks for making the list of lists. I look forward to your future "list". Blessings on you as you continue your terrific blogging!
