Hello there and welcome to my first blog post! I am excited to have you here and to share a little bit of myself with you. My first thought for you is, “Who doesn’t love a list?!” I mean, I love information presented in lists. It can be funny, serious, useful, ridiculous, sarcastic, heavy – it doesn’t matter. If it’s presented in a list I’m intrigued and empowered to at least skim through the content for the following reasons:
Lists equal instant organization. Even in cases where information is incoherent, illogical, or completely unrelated, presenting that information in a list creates an undeniable structure.
2. Built-in Reminders
Lists have built-in bullet points. When you forget what you just read all you have to do is scroll up to the previous bold heading and “bam!”- reminder.
Lists are just practical. They are often short and applicable. And *bonus* if you realllly like the list and happen to be Type A, you could even print it and go to town underlining, circling, and crossing things out.
For my fellow skimmers out there headings are a gift. They allow for quickly gaining information without having to invest time or energy in reading more than a few lines.
5. Eye Candy
Lastly, and, perhaps, most importantly, lists are just pretty.
With these thoughts in mind, all of the content on this blog will be presented in list format. Some lists may have more to offer than others but my hope is that each post will be easy to read and informative. Again, welcome, and I hope that what you find here makes a positive contribution to your journey.
