Where to Find Ideas (Part 2)

As was mentioned in the previous post, one of the best places to find ideas is yourself. Do you have any interesting hobbies that others can learn about. Often people’s busy schedules or their budgets won’t allow them to attend classes. You can be their classroom teacher and show them how to do or make something through a how-to article.

If you keep a journal, some of your entries may provide interesting slices of daily life. If you can write about the mundane in an exciting, humorous way, you will entertain your audience well. Be aware, however, that many of the things in your journal are meant for your eyes only, and others will not benefit in any way from reading about them. Learn to discern what will interest others and what will not.

Sometimes our childhood memories provide interesting anecdotes. Again, be careful that what you experienced is relevant to today’s audience.
