This is WHY they invented Post-Its!

Advice: Write down Blog Post Ideas!

I literally had about 4 blog post ideas in the last week that came to mind. I jumped with joy and thought, "My readers with LOVE this topic!" and "I'll barely have to put any thought into this post. It will just flow from the heavens through my fingers and the world will sigh in appreciation that I have just written the best blog post ever!"

This actually happens often. Unfortunately these posts ideas come to me at the most inconvenience of times. Like right now when I'm in the middle of another post. Or when I'm JUST about to fall asleep. Sometimes they come to me in the shower. Oh oh ... or in the car! (Or while my husband insists on talking to me while I am mid thought...but of course this NEVER happens)

So needless to say, the worlds best blog post ideas disappear ... as though they never existed. It is a tragedy I tell you!

Remedy: Post-Its

I'm considering carrying a packet of them at all times. I can write down an idea and I can stick it to my forehead and hope my head absorbs the idea fully and never forgets it...Ever! Oh...what is that? That's not the point of Post-Its? I can actually post them on my wall or my desk and it has the same effect? Sweet! Even better!

Post-Its my friends....Post-Its!

Am I a Genius or what! What? Ok ok...we can give credit to the guy who invented them too...

was it romy and michelle's high school reunion where one of them said her dad invented post-it notes? how cool would that be if that were true? "i'm heir to the post-it note empire." :)

Kristen Torres-Toro @ Write in the Way said...

Ha! I have this same problem too! Why do the best ideas always come when we can't write?

Katie Ganshert said...

I'm a Post It gal! I make my students use them too. They are the BEST invention. :)

Jody Hedlund said...

Gotta love post-its! You're a genius and I think maybe a trend-setter? Soon you'll be seeing writers everywhere with post-its stuck to their foreheads!

I just bought a jumbo pack from costo. I love the hot pink ones best. (hmmm what does that say about me???)

Marybeth Poppins said...

I love pink ones! And green ones! I'm thinking I may need to visit Costco!

Jody I love being a trend setter! I hope everyone starts sticking post its on their head after today :)

Yes Katie...they ARE a good investment. Possibly thinking about buy some stock in them!

Seriously Kristen! I need a pen for my shower...

I think that was the movie Jeannie. And I'd love to be heir to the Post-It Empire!

Exactly Ann :)

Well that is why I have a blank notebook in the bathroom for those impulsive shower posts, if I can just hold onto the thought long enough to get out, dry off, and write it down, along with post it's in my car and purse. They help with other things as well like errands or grocery items.

Great idea though for using them blogging.

post its rock. I so wish I had invented them... oh well.

Lesa said...

Hahaha. So glad to hear I'm not the only who has ideas pop up at the most inconvenient times. Great post!

Wendy said...

My problem is deciphering them once I scribble on them!

Jessica said...

I totally write mine down on a sheet of paper. Sometimes I even go ahead and set up drafts with ideas. Mostly just a title, which will remind me of what I wanted to write about.
Get some post-its! :-)

I love post its, when in the UK recently, I treated myself to some coloured thin ones. That is how simple minded I am, of all the things I could have brought back to Cyprus, I chose more post its!
I enjoyed my visit, my author blog never sits at the top of my blog list either, glad you pointed yours out.

I carry Tinkerbell post-its and keep some at my desk! :) Instead of sticking them to your head though, try sticking them to your children. They are easier to read that way! :) I'm also a "great idea!" in the shower person!
