Today, I saw a post by someone suggesting ways to come up with ideas for blog post topics and they gave some examples. The examples were not all that relevant to most of the readers of this blog, but it definitely sparked a thought for me. Most of the time I learn something, I write a blog post. But I don't have nearly enough time to have conversations, learn and write blog posts. Point me to it by putting a link to: 100 Conversations and the exact text "100 Conversations" in your post and I'll find it via blog search. It's a great start to your blog.
