OK. So I’m not a young as I used to be. My memory isn’t photographic and sometimes I forget what why I got up and went into another room.
Still, even if my mind were as sharp as a razor, I’m beginning to realize how important keeping a blog post idea journal might be. You see, my mind races constantly. None of that meditation crap for me where my mind is still and becomes one with the universe. Nope. It’s constantly in Drive.
As a result, I’m constantly thinking of things I should blog about. In fact, I was sitting in my recliner just this morning thinking of 10 things I could post about. I was thinking I could even post ahead so they would automatically publish one day after each other thanks to the magic of WordPress. Then I remembered I needed to do the laundry and completely forgot all the earth shattering things I was going to write about.
Enter the blog post idea journal.
I’ve heard about it before. Some people even suggest blog post calendars. I think Jott is still around which would enable me to call Jott and have them send me a note via e-mail reminding me of my sterling ideas. Of course, that means calling and then checking my e-mail.
Either way, I’m becoming more and more convinced that there has to be a way to retain all these great ideas floating around in my head.
Do you have a favorite way to keep track of your ideas for blog posts? Journal? Calendar? Software? Your mother reminding you?
