About ListCaboodle: What’s with the name?
The name ListCaboodle is derived from combining the word “list” with “caboodle.” While most everyone knows the meaning of the list, the word caboodle is not as well known. Caboodle comes from an expression used in the United States in the 1800s, “The whole kit and caboodle.” Kit referred to a soldier’s kit for keeping personal items and means a collection of items. Caboodle meant originally a large group of people. It evolved to mean a large amount of something, a group. It is sometimes spelled with a “k” and looks like this: “kaboodle”.
So, by our way of thinking, “ListCaboodle” means a large number of lists, which we think describes our humble website pretty well.
A couple of years back, we discovered that a lot of the articles and posts we were reading from our favorite websites followed a similar format. Articles like “33 Ways to Save on Taxes,” “17 Tips to Impress your Sweetheart on Valentine’s Day,” and “13 Hacks to Save Money Around the House,” looked a lot alike format-wise. Numbered lists were popular.
All about lists
What makes the list format so interesting? Well, this format makes for an easy read. If you don’t like one of the numbered items, it’s simple to skip over it and proceed to the others. It’s a way of feeding your brain a lot of facts in a short amount of time. And, with numbered list articles, at any point in the reading process, you have a sense as to how much longer you need to keep reading to finish the article. It’s like walking around a small lake. You have a general sense as to how far you’ve come, and how far you have left to go.
So, we came up with the concept of a website that just featured lists. Why fight the trend?
We weren’t just going to have a sprinkling of list articles, but virtually every post would feature the format. The unifying element to the site would be the list concept. Now, on our navigational menu, we break down the lists into groupings like people, entertainment, lifestyle, cool stuff, history, words (which might include quotes, toasts or something related to the written word), bizarre, business and travel.
Upon introducing our website to the general public, the response has been incredibly positive. People love lists! Here are some of our favorites on our site:
