Tracking Blog Post Ideas

My friend Adam asked me how I’ve been keeping track of ideas for blog posts. For that and pretty much anything else that involves lists or notes, I use Workflowy:

When I started this little daily blogging challenge I would have laughed at the idea that I could write every day for more than a few days. I just didn’t feel like I had that much to write about.

But when you force yourself to do a daily blogging challenge, you have to set the bar much lower in your mind for what’s worthy of writing about. If you restrict yourself to only one or two topics or only publish long, insightful posts then you probably won’t be able to blog daily for very long.

When I committed mentally to doing this, I suddenly had a lot of ideas for things that I could write about. They’re kind of scattered and some posts won’t be interesting to many people (and some to none at all), but that’s fine. It gives me enough to write about to keep it up and that’s what the challenge is all about.

On that note, I’ll hit a 30 day streak on Christmas Eve at which point I’ll take a break and start up again in January. I probably won’t try to do it daily again, but will try to keep posting once or twice a week going forward.

Thanks all for reading.

  1. Damn, those were all the topics I was going to write about!

    Haha. In all seriousness though, I have far too many that I’ve written but haven’t posted.

    Congrats on almost making a 30-day streak. Keep it up, I’ve been enjoying them.
