I’ve written a list on the very last page of the List Journal today. It’s now filled and it’s time to shelf this project. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along and I know some of you have been inspired to make your own list journals and to write the prompts. Thanks for shared links left in the comments!
Want the story behind the List Journal and the fun collaboration that Tammy and I are doing? Check out the intro post and then follow along with our Saturday List Journal prompts. Thanks!
Last week was Random facts about me. Today’s list prompt is called random subjects I know a lot about. What would yours be?
This prompt, made up by Tammy, reminds me of the book Microserfs. Do you remember it? In it they list their favorite (rather strange) random Jeopardy subjects, things that they’d be winning with if they got any questions about it. (Quote: I am firstname.lastname@example.org. If my life was a game of Jeopardy! my seven dream categories would be: Tandy products, Trash TV of the late ’70s and early ’80s, The history of Apple, Career anxieties, Tabloids, Plant life of the Pacific Northwest & Jell-O 1-2-3…)
List #11: Random subjects I know a lot about
I’m not an expert in any particular subject. It feels kind of boring, but it’s the truth. Instead I listed things I have studied over the years, in the school of life that is. Like blogging, journaling (writing a diary, art journaling, etc…), how to find and obtain happiness (I’ve read tons of books about this very subject because it interests me), child raising (I know a lot for someone who hasn’t got kids of my own anyway) and making a creative mess (both on my desk and out of my life). Plus, literature, the one subject I’ve always loved, and studied at the university. Those might be the dream categories if my life was a game of Jeopardy!
What’s your dream subjects?
Tammy (view her subjects listed here) made this special little journal for me (and I made one for her), and together we’ve created lots of lists and all of these prompts. It’s been a very cool collaboration, and it has pushed me to plan and post blogs on Saturdays for several weeks in a row. I’m very pleased with having this journal in my collection, to have done this project, to have had some of you join us – and to finish it today.
Thanks sweet ones!
View all posts in this series – and feel free to add your links for each done prompt to the appropriate post. I will come visit you to check it out.
Interesting prompt, I haven’t a clue what I would put so will put my thinking cap on!
This project has been so much fun and I’m sorry to see it end :) Thanks so much for the inspiration and list prompts!
Jenni, how sweet of you to say, thank you! Everything good has to end sooner or later, but we’ll come up with fun stuff in the future too I’m sure of it. :-)
And remember, we’ve always got list it tuesday to join and be inspired by.
darn, over so soon? it’s been fun seeing what you guys come up with. I keep thinking I’ll go back to all the lists and do my own. maybe I still will. (or I can just make lists of “things I keep meaning to do”)
Random things I know a lot about:
Knitting, farming, prevention of anti-social behaviour, the Dances of Universal Peace, Permaculture, Esalen, Buddhism, Gestalt, Trekking in Nepal, Gardening, Counselling, Massage, Wales, child development, photography, jiving, country walks in the UK, Newgale Beach, Community living, textile arts.
Wow – it was fun writing that list!
Hanna, what kind of pink paint did you use for that pink journal page? It looks so yummy!
I love this!

There is mine.
