Why Writing a List is Good for You

. at . 4 comments

Sometimes I don’t know what to write, whether it’s for a post, school paper, or letter. There are all kinds of ideas swirling in the thought soup called my brain. Or there are no thoughts. Writing a list of ideas on one topic helps me corral similar thoughts or kick start the thought process.

Below are five more reasons writng a list is good for you.

  1. It is fast to write – so it gets the brain thinking.
  2. It forces you to summarize each point in a sentence or phrase.
  3. It helps you to see all the points at one time.
  4. It helps you stop, sit down, and start writing.
  5. You could win a prize!

Network Blogging Tips is sponsoring a List Blogging Challenge. The deadline is April 20th. The prize is a“One Touch 4 Mini 250 GB external hard drive, worth $129.00.” Go here for all the details.

I’ll be writing list posts all week and then submit the best one Sunday, the 20th.

Get busy writing your list post. Be sure to let me know when you’ve written and submitted your post. It will be fun to have some competition amongst friends.

    Hi Susan.

    Thanks for mentioning my article Tackle Any Issue With a List of 100. Right after I wrote it, I promoted a group writing project in the website that was very similar to the one you mention. Maybe you can get some ideas from the many great submissions.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for posting a comment on my blog. I found this post on yours, and just wrote a list post… I think it may help me get into my “blog groove.”

    Mary, I’m glad to hear this. I like writing list posts. Sometimes I need some help getting my groove back.

    I tried to read your list, but I wasn’t able to access your site. :-(
