Works For Me Wednesday- Windows Calendar

   On a day to day basis I have all sorts of brilliant blog ideas running through my head. Sometimes while something is happening I will start writing in my head as it is happening. Oh yeah, that means I am sometimes thinking about writing something about you when I am with you. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Yet often times by the time I sit down to write a blog post, poof, all brilliance disappears (this actually happens in a whole host of ways throughout the day, brilliance = poof). Funny how that happens.

So I noticed that my computer had a program on it called Windows Calendar. Very similar to Microsoft Outlook if you have that. Anyway, when I have and idea, I schedule it. This is super helpful with product reviews so I remember to do them. Not that I ever forget to do them, potential marketers sending me kick butt products. I am an excellent reviewer!!

Do you use anything to help you post? Or any tips for retaining brain cells cause my are disappearing rapidly?

  1. As a freelance writer, I keep little notebooks and big notebooks,everywhere. I can’t stand to let an idea slip by!

  2. I have google documents. Where I can copy and paste Ideal I find on blog that I want to remember or recipes. It keep me from using up computer space and I can access it any where there is a computer.

  3. My ideas for blog posts also seem to disappear when I need them. I like the idea of having somewhere to lay them out. I used to keep a running list, but I need more than that. I’ve thought about starting a little blogging planner.

  4. I call my desk and leave voicemails. That way when I listen to my voicemails I can type out the idea on the computer. I keep posts in a “draft” form until I’m ready to post them.

  7. I will have to check out Windows Calendar. I discovered Google Calendar about a month ago and I LOVE it. My husband can log into at work and see what is on the family calendar. Plus, it lets you look at two calendars overlapped or separately (for example, I have a dinner calendar and activity calendar). I can see the both on one calendar view or I can select not to see the meals, etc. It’s awesome, too.

    For blog posts, I usually just end up sending myself an email or something or jot it down in a small notebook in my bag if I am out and about.

    I just read and amazing book called Getting It Together from the Effective Edge website. My life is extremely busy with family, church, a full time job plus whatever else God brings into my day. I have just started using these techniques this week and already I can see a diffrence. http://www.effectiveedge.com/

  9. This is a great idea. I’ll have to check it out. I’ve totally mentally written a blog post as the event was happening. And totally let it go “poof” b/c I didn’t write it down right away. Ugh.
