102 Blog Post Ideas

Written by Anne McAuley Lopez on . Posted in Blogging for Business Owners

When was the last time you sat down with paper and pen and wrote? I don’t mean you wrote a grocery list or scribbled a short note. I mean you sat and scribbled pages of notes. If you’re like many people, it has been ages since you put pen to paper.

This week I have taken pen to paper three times.

It has been freeing to use paper and pen. I hear it is a physiological high to sit and write with pen to paper.  Writer’s high instead of runner’s high – I love it! I wrote two presentations with notebook paper being torn out and flown around. I crumpled paper and prayed my favorite pen didn’t run out of ink. It was a truly inspiring experience.

Today I went to my favorite coffee shop and got a dirty soy chai. I took out my purple pen and the notebook my BFF sent me for Christmas as scribbled these 102 blog post ideas:
