Make a List Monday

Ok, now that the blog is started and going well, I realize blogging duties can easily take over my day...and do often. Does anyone else feel like that?
yes, this is what my desk really looks like

What I need is a schedule. I'm very task-oriented, and if I have a list, things get done eventually and I don't feel like something is always being forgotten. There's a Blog Frog discussion: How do you find balance in your life? and making lists seems to be a popular way to fool yourself stay organized and balanced.

'Fine' you say, but most of us seem to have lists written just about everywhere, on anything and everything. And there is no Master List, just odd bits of lists in various states of completeness, scattered in a purse, in the car, on your desk, in your computer...need I go on?

I happened upon a post from another blogger who blogs about her to-do list and then updates it in another post. I've seen other bloggers post about their to-do lists, but I'm going to have a running list on a blog page. I'm always here, doing bloggy things anyway; why not make an electronic to-do list? I've tried using MS Word, but I use two laptops and having it central to my blog means I'm more likely to use it.

My electronic list starts today and it will be on a To-Do page for anyone to see. Keeping me accountable might just make some things get crossed off more quickly!

How do you manage your To-Do's? Seriously, I need to know...


  1. I'm a list writer...and my lists are everywhere! I really need to get more orginized it that area too :)
    I'm your newest follower :) Found you threw "hoot-n-nanny" :) Looking foward to reading more!

  2. It sounds like you have a plan- and you are right- blogging can take on a life of its own.

    I love making lists-
    the to do list for my home and other responsibilities keeps the blogging in balance.

    I'm a huge list maker too! I love making them and love crossing things off as I finish them. (yes, I know I'm weird!) :) I like your idea of keeping them on your blog.
