Great blog ideas come to me at the strangest times. Most often they come to me when I am NOT near a computer. I learned the hard way that I will NOT remember that great ideas 4 hours later (or the next morning).
Finding an Answer
Finally, I ponied up the 88 cents and bought a composition notebook. I carried this notebook (and it’s predecessors) around with me everywhere. Since it is not spiral bound, the pages stayed in nicely. Since it has a rigid cover, my handwriting didn’t look like chicken-scratch.
I have used these notebooks for almost 2 years, now, and I love it. I have boatloads of random (and semi-brilliant-if-I-may-say-so-myself) blog posts that should last me a near lifetime. (And I am planning on living long enough to embarrass my great-grandchildren, so there.)
Finding Other Answers
However, I know that my notebook idea is sooo 1.0, so here are other options:
- Jott.com – This site allows you to call in and leave a message. They translate it to text and email it to you, along with the audio recording. You can even “jott” to other people.
If you were really cool, you could set up your email to auto-file messages from Jott.com to a file marked “Blog Ideas” … I’m not even THAT cool.
- Voice Mail – Call and leave yourself a Voice Mail with all your genius ideas.
