Don’t you just hate it when you have a great idea for a blog post, but by the next day you’ve forgotten it? Don’t deny it, it happens. Just yesterday I had not one, but two great ideas for posts. Do I remember either of them today? Nope.
Usually, I don’t have to worry about not having anything to blog. I keep a notebook with everything I think-up that’s in anyway connected to my blog. I keep track of every post idea I think of, so I have plenty of choices should I find a lack of inspiration when I go to write my next post. When I think of something that would make a good post, I make a note of it.
Every day when I write something new, I don’t normally have to think much. If I don’t find fresh inspiration from my morning RSS reader check, I grab my blog notebook and look for something.
So why didn’t I write-down my ideas from the other day? I was at the bowling alley. My large multi-subject notebook was a home, and I didn’t have my pocket-sized one with me like I usually do.
Ideas always arrive at the worst possible times, be prepared. Get a pocket-sized notepad for when you’re away from your “blogging headquarters,” and get a multi-subject notebook to keep track of everything.
