#WishListed: Listography

As you are probably well aware (since you are reading from The List), I really enjoy lists.

I enjoy making lists and do so for a lot of different things. My Google Drive folders are full of just lists. I use them to keep track of things and ideas, I use them to organize my life and thoughts and I often like to break big concepts down into really tiny detailed lists.

So, it will come as no surprise to you that I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. I desperately want these!!! My immediate thought when I saw them was that they would probably inspire a lot of blog posts. Some of the titles for the some of the lists really caught my attention and I could absolutely see myself turning to these again and again.

Without further adieu, check out these Listography books, which are now officially #WishListed!


Listography Journal: Your Life in Lists

Listography: Your Life in Lists
Listography: Your Life in Lists

Why I Want It:

With lists like “greatest accomplishments, memorable co-workers, places you’ve lived, guilty pleasures, and greatest acts of kindness“, Your Life in Lists sounds like a great way to take a walk down memory lane – which we all know I’m obsessed with! #NostalgiaJunkie


My Future Listography: All I Want To Do in Lists

My Future Listography
My Future Listography

Why I Want It:

Encouraging users to envision future goals and aspirations” list topics “range from the practical (places to visit, habits to break, good deeds to perform) to the more thoughtful (what you hope people say at your funeral, experiences you would love to have again).”. It’s essentially The List in paperback!


Love Listography: Your Love Life in Lists

Why I Want It:

The blurb says there are “topics ranging from sweet (favorite love songs, best dates) to cringe-worthy (relationship pet-peeves, worst break-ups) to downright naughty.” I’m curious about the downright naughty!!!


Music, Literary and Film Listographies

Why I Want It:

Music – “Loaded with music-inspired list topics ranging from traditional (top 20 favorite albums) to eclectic (songs you thought were about you) to experimental (concerts you wish you could time travel back to), this journal gives music lovers a backstage pass to hours of list-making fun” – sells itself!

Literary – List topics range “from the quintessential (books that made me cry, special book stores) to the lovably idiosyncratic (fictional crimes I’ve witnessed, favorite reading spots)“, this one would be fun for tracking my reading experiences.

Film – Topics ranging “from the classic (favorite films of all time, favorite actors) to the lovably idiosyncratic (top so-bad-it’s-good movies, scenes that made you cringe, characters you are most like)” are likely to make me delve deeper into my film experiences.


Spirit Listography: My Inner Self in Lists

Spirit Listography: My Inner Self in Lists
Spirit Listography: My Inner Self in Lists

Why I Want It:

Spirit Listography serves as a unique memoir and bucket list for those interested in self-reflection and mindful action (appropriate for all spiritual practices).” Some lists include things I’m grateful for and favorite things to smell.


Parenthood Listography: My Kid in Lists

Parenthood Listography: My Kid in Lists

Why I Want It:

It would not be okay for me to get just one of these books. I’d need at least 5 of them for each of the kids.

And then I could keep memories of them in neat lists, like “things your kid should know about their parents, your child’s favorite songs and imaginary tales they told” or “A List of Personality Traits I Aspire To Have As a Parent, A List of Things You Destroyed, List of Your Talents, List of Funny Things You Said, Places I Hope To Take You Someday“. So many great parenting-related lists!!!


There are other books in the Listography series, including a travel journal and lists for foodies. There’s even a boardgame that you can play with friends!!! However, these were the ones that really set my heart on fire and I could see myself using regularly.

Which one(s) would you want the most? Are you a lover of lists? Do you have any of these? Do you love them?

#BucketListed: Publish My First Book

I’ve long talked about my desire to write a book. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

I even have books in the works. By in the works, I mean that they are sitting in folders – some of them only just started, some of them just outlined and some of them with thousands of unedited words.

However, I would in no way say that I’m anywhere near the point of publishing said first book yet. Not even close!

Being an author is a way of immortalizing yourself – more than almost any other medium. Words live for centuries!  You can still read the words of authors and philosophers written from thousands of years ago. I was always a big fan of journaling, to remember myself, to remember who I was. To immortalize and preserve myself for myself.

What began as journaling evolved into writing. It’s how I started blogging. I wasn’t doing it to reach out to readers or start conversations, I was just writing in my online journal. Then I began publishing erotica and can now, sorta, put myself into the writer category. Sorta.

In terms of what types of books I want to publish, it ranges and varies. Generally, I want to stick to sex-based subjects, because it’s what I think I know. And what I’m passionate about – which is ultimately what matters. From erotic novels to non-fiction sexual education-type books.

Does that mean that this should be #FucketListed?

To which, my answer is, no it shouldn’t be. Because it’s not a sexual want/desire/aspiration. It’s a very day-to-day mundane interaction – writing a book, that is. Publishing a book is not sexual, even if it’s content may be. And if I only wanted to publish erotica, then maybe. But again, that’s not all I can write!

More than anything though, I want to feel my book in my hands. I struggle with publishing an eBook alone because I want to feel the weight of my words. I want to hear my finger slide down the page and the spine crack! I want to turn the crisp pages and have that memorable smell waft towards my nose. I want to make it to the final page and experience the ending in the way only closing a book can allow. I want to set it down and feel completed.
