What makes a good checklist?

One thing is consistency… Check your spelling, check your capitalization – does every new line item start with a capital, check your punctuation – do you have periods at the end of all your items or not?

Another thing would be to make sure you have a number of items listed as part of your checklist. Other users are more likely to reference your checklist and even embed it into their own website if your checklist is a quality, well-written one.

Can I have link back to my website/blog?

Yes, everyone (individuals and businesses) are encouraged to include a link to your website or blog. It’s our way of saying thank you for taking the time to add your checklist to CheckListables.

How quickly will my checklist be reviewed?

The area to type my checklist in seems too small – can I make that area larger/longer?

If the area for your text seems too short, you can hover your mouse over the bottom right-hand corner, click your left mouse button and drag the screen down a bit.

How can I create an image and what size does it need to be?

You can search at for images at: http://www.google.com/images and a great easy online formatting website is: http://pixlr.com/express/ To use Pixlr.com, find an image you like, save it to your computer (right-click and ‘save as’. Save your image the same name as your checklist. For example, if your title is ‘Twitter Checklist’ save your image as ‘Twitter-Checklist’). Then open Pixlr.com, select the browse button, locate the image you saved and then change it as you wish. To create a perfect sized image, resize it to 660 by 330. You can do this by selecting the ‘Adjustment’ button and then ‘Resize’ – De-select, ‘keep proportions’. Then for the width, hit, 660 and for the height, type in 330. Then, ‘Apply’. Make sure there are no copyright restrictions!

Can I copy and paste text from Word?

If you’ve created a checklist in word or another program, it’s best to remove any bullets (or don’t add them in the first place), copy and paste into Notepad and then copy from Notepad into the space provided. This gets rid of any odd stuff that might mess up your formatting.
