MY RULES OF LIST

Inspired by @lexie_elyse @LeahG @shanaz @k8mcgarry @Boogie and other people, I'm sure..
  1. β€’
    I started out by following some of the 🌟🌟🌟 on this app, and continue to follow 'cause they're damn good listers!
    I now tend to follow those who share the same interests.
  2. β€’
    I am a sometimes day lister/sometimes night lister, my schedule is flexible.
    I try not to take away from human interaction time to be on my phone, but am sometimes guilty.
  3. β€’
    Push notifications ON.
    It's still kind of exciting~I'm fairly new at this!
  4. β€’
    List notifications OFF.
    But I literally just figured this out days ago! When my children went off to college they told me I had to learn to do things myself (technology-wise) so I'm still learning😳
  5. β€’
    I ❀️ emojis.
    I'm probably using them wrong but I just like them. I really, really like them.
  6. β€’
    I feel a little creepy with the younger crowd when I read/like/comment on your lists because you don't know me. I really just miss my kids and sometimes (@lexie_elyse 😬) you remind me of them and it brings me comfort.
    I laughed out loud when you did the "moms" πŸ™„ I actually tried to get my daughter to join up but she doesn't get it, so DAUGHTERS πŸ™„πŸ˜‚
  7. β€’
    I read all the comments and try to respond.
    I like it when you leave comments for me so I'm assuming it goes both ways.
  8. β€’
    I am free with liking lists because I actually have a wide range of interests.
    If it's heartfelt or funny, I'm likely to ❀️I lean toward lists with deep emotion, or food, music, books/movies and travel! Sometimes I just like the pure nonsense too. I also enjoy seeing your pets and your children!
  9. β€’
    I re-list only what I love, or feel aligns with my values and I love when you re-list mine! Trending makes me really happy though that's not my goal when I write.
    I got involved here because writing is my own personal therapy. So, I am either purging or trying to find humor, which is my coping mechanism.
  10. β€’
    I have unfollowed a few people just because they haven't listed in awhile or you posted something that made me uncomfortable.
    I haven't had a reason to block anyone, so far, which is nice.
  11. β€’
    I try to stay under the radar on the political commentary or anything religious.
    I have yet to find anything that I feel compelled to comment on with regard to these subjects. That may change now that I've gotten to know some of you a little better.
  12. β€’
    I have 47 drafts at the moment.
    I like the Title Waves but I also have a lot of "stuff" in my head. I have always written things down when I feel the need..it helps me process.
  13. β€’
    I sometimes use search to make sure I'm not stealing someone's idea even when something pops into my head.
    I never want anyone to feel like they didn't get credit for something, but honestly, I may use the "inspired by" to credit the person whose list I just read, instead of tracking it all the way back. Should probably be better about that.
  14. β€’
    I edit all the time. I need to stop.
    I read over my lists but sometimes miss things so I "fix them"..spelling errors, punctuation..have even added something I meant to add to a list.
  15. β€’
    I check the feed, the trending lists and often times, the related lists.
    Sometimes I end up reading old lists, which is fun, and other times I find new people who are just starting out, so I like to encourage them! I appreciate those of you who did the same for me!
  16. β€’
    There are old lists that circulated long before I joined in and if I think they were really great, I like to revive them!
    I see a group πŸ™„ from the OG's πŸ˜‚
  17. β€’
    If I really enjoy your subject matter/writing, I will read deep into your lists.
    Some of you have A LOT of lists!!
  18. β€’
    If your list is super long and not something I'd normally be interested in, I may pass unless I already know that I enjoy your writing style.
    Then I'll stick it out because you haven't disappointed me before..unless it involves Harry Potter or Sci-Fi 😬
  19. β€’
    I have saved a dozen or so lists and should do this more.
    It took me a few weeks to figure out your list lingo and some of the unfamiliar emojis, because UGH, technology is hard!
  20. β€’
    My number one list rule? Be kind.
    I got involved here to ease my own pain. I like reading your lists that share your personal struggles and triumphs, and they make me feel less alone. I don't need any drama from social media (plenty of that IRL!) so as the saying goes, "we don't have to agree to be kind."
