    I started a Google document that is called, “First goes at blog posts”. Some entries are just outlines, some are random paragraphs edited out of other blog posts that I thought worth saving, and others are almost complete but for some reason I wasn’t happy enough to schedule them.

    I also carry around a little notebook in my purse so that when a thought strikes me, I can jot it down. It’s also useful when I arrive early (or my friend arrives late), and I find myself with time on my hands. This way it’s not wasted.

    For my blog post that will run this coming Monday, I found an almost completed, but not very satisfying post in my purse. Then I realized that if I took the first paragraph and went a different direction with it, it would be perfect.

    Thanks for the reminder that we already have had tons of good ideas. Now is time to harvest them.

      That’s awesome Tammy. I like your idea about carrying a small notebook around…I have one but since I don’t carry a purse, more often than not it gets left at home. I totally hear you on taking a paragraph and using that to go a different direction completely. I do that quite a bit…hence some of those unfinished blogs :/ Thanks for reading and commenting. I like your post about camping. I could use a little get away myself!

        Seth, guys do have a disadvantage with not carrying a purse (at least when it comes to being able to carry a notebook around). If you have a smartphone, you can jot down notes on it, since you’ll have it with you most of the time. It’s not as convenient as a notepad, but at least provides a way to capture an idea when you’re out and about.

        Great post, btw. Thanks for sharing it with my readers!

          My pleasure Rebecca…and as for using the smartphone, absolutely. I’ve even been known to send myself text messages so as to keep them front and center to make sure I see them 🙂
