Make it Monday // Make a List - 30 Lists Preview

I mentioned last Friday that Five Sixteenths is sponsoring 30 Days of Lists for it's 4th session in September!  And guess what...registration is now open! If you haven't heard of 30 Lists, let me fill you in:
30 Lists is a great way to make a scrapbook for a whole month! Only about 5-10 minutes a day are needed to make a great memory book!  Prompted by a topic a day, fill up a book with small lists to get started in journaling.  I joined 30 lists (way back in the beginning) to kick start my journaling & blogging ideas.  A list a day, that's all it takes to come away with a great snapshot of your life through September. (learn more here!)

30 Lists is a great opportunity to connect with other cool people (not just bloggers) & give you something to blog about!  I joined 30 lists the first go round not only to participate in something cool but I wanted to have something relevant to blog about while I was finding my blogging voice.  While I'm tying up the ends here on the Blogging 101 eBook, one of the key points I am focusing on here in the end is Networking.  Blogging has a lot to do with networking! If you don't connect with other bloggers, you won't make friends! (Which is a great part of blogging.) So, a great networking opportunity to dive into this September is 30 Lists.  If you're down for it, click here to sign up or click the button in the sidebar & kick of your September right!  (Also, if you enter before August 15th, you're entered to win a set of 3 Kerri Smith books! Preeeetty cool!

Now for a little pre-September list:
