Your Blog Triggered a Thought
When reading blogs I like to take the time to leave a comment. Many times I find myself thinking of another set of circumstances that I want to share about the topic. Your blog post got me to thinking.
While writing the comment I realize I have too much to say and don't want to hijack the post and dominate the comment section with a diatribe response. Even while making the comment I may think of another two or three points to make but know I need to be brief and keep it a comment. Has this ever happened to you?
So what do you do when this happens? If time allows I start writing my own post. While the ideas on the subject are flowing I yield to the creative spirit and let it go. Many times I will refer to the post that lead to the inspiration or thought.
Now if time is not in my favor and I think it will be worthy of addressing later, I still start a new blog post and make enough notes to get it going with a train of thought. I may not have a good title yet but will label it based on the topic so I can find it later in my drafts.
When I have a few extra minutes I go back and resurrect it from the draft. The main ideas may stay the same or I might deviate and go with a different point. My draft section has many half started posts waiting to be developed and finished into posts. This helps on those days when I think I don't know what I should write about today.
Others tell me that my posts get their ideas flowing as they mention it in their posts. I don't mind at all being a springboard to a new post. I like many of the neighborhood or market reports I see that remind me to write mine. Some use a format that I find more pleasing than the one I typically use so it is inspiration to change mine up a little and be more innovative. I thank the community for that.
This is one of the beauties of ActiveRain. The content is excellent and inspires us all to write better, share ideas and to answer posts with our own posts giving it our own flavor.
Do you get ideas while reading other's blog posts?
