We’re registered!

October 25th, 2007 No comments

We heard on Monday that our trade mark for the word Lifelists has finally been registered. It’s been a long time coming (our application was lodged and is now backdated to 26/04/2006) but yet seems to have been a straightforward application with no objections etc. Many thanks to Cruickshank and Co. for guiding us through the procedure. We can now use the ® symbol wherever we use the word Lifelists if we like.

Getting the word out

October 17th, 2007 No comments

This web site is so important to Al and I. Of course, there are more important things in life (our health, being together etc.) but we are very commited to this site and our Lifelists concept. We’re going to do everything we can to make it a success but what exactly does that mean? Maybe it is a success already? We don’t have millions of users like some other sites but the Lifelisters that have got involved are worth their weight in gold or (even rare white truffles). Many thanks to them; they have made this site what it is, are creating some great lists and really seem to ‘get’ our concept. Since our little site went ‘live’ at the end of last year there has not been one complaint about any user. Everyone has been kind, supportive, encouraging and respectful of each other. We are very slowly (but surely that’s the best way?) building a community of people who love life and want to celebrate it. People who are not just happy to celebrate our similarities but also our differences. What more could we want? As far as we’re concerned that makes the site a huge success. I can see though that there may be a case to be made for getting more people involved so that there is more rapidly changing content on the site. We haven’t really tried that hard to do this so far but now feels like the right time to try and spread the word. The site is working properly from a technical point of view, the friends section will be online soon and there are lots of new additions almost ready to go. Al’s working non stop on all the techie stuff so the marketing will be down to me. If anyone can help with this or make some suggestions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch or get involved.

If I won the lottery

October 15th, 2007 No comments

Pixie has come up with another great list entitled ‘If I won the lottery’. As soon as we can, we’ll add it to the quicklist menu. I have a list in my head of what I would do if I had lots and lots of money but I’ve never written it down before. I have a feeling that the things I will put on my list won’t be the same as the extravagant ideas in my head. That’s another one that would take a lot of thinking about but what fun. Something to keep me busy on long winter evenings. Like Pixie though, it would help if I actually bought a ticket on a regular basis!

My Ideal Round The World Trip

October 8th, 2007 No comments

eclectic has come up with a great list idea- ‘Ideal Round The World Trip’. The idea is this: Imagine you can go around the world for a year and stay at 13 stops each for 4 weeks thereby using them as a hub for accessing intermediate destinations. I really admire eclectic’s choices and spent many a happy hour wondering what my own choices would be. I’m assuming money would be no object. I think I need to get the atlas out before I commit myself to this one.

Quicklists

October 8th, 2007 No comments

The friends system is coming along nicely and should be up and running very soon. In the meantime we’ve added a ‘quicklists’ menu. If you’re feeling short of inspiration you can choose a list from the quicklist menu which will be created automatically for you. I’ve chosen some interesting lists for this menu; there’s Samantha Steger-Lewis’s list- ‘Things to do before Xmas’, eclectic’s ‘Ideal Round the World Trip’, my ‘nowlist’ idea and Jean Rhynsburger’s ‘Blessings List”. Any suggestions for additions to this menu will be very welcome.
