Whether you are writing a blog post in list format or creating a to-do list for your wedding business, the issues stay the same. A list is just a list. It can be a good list or a bad list, and when you’re the author, you are responsible for how good it is. 

There are people who recommend listing everything. That’s all nice and good, but if you don’t need the list, or the content on the list is unusable, and doesn’t help you is some way, it is a complete waste of time, energy and space. Think through what you are writing and why you are writing it. Is the truly helpful to you and or your reader? Make sure to read the article by Hollis Thomases on the irritation of dealing with useless lists. What do you think?
