A bag full of ideas 12/29/07

Bagful From time to time, I’m going to share a mixed bag of ideas, marketing tips, brilliant writing and sometimes — something that just made me laugh out loud.  Here’s today’s offering:

This one had me thinking.: Here’s today’s offering: If you don’t already know about Christine Kane’s blog on creativity — you need to discover it. Quickly.

Christine brings back an idea she shared last year.  Rather than setting a resolution — why not choose ONE word to be the guiding principle of 2008?  Her post really triggers some soul searching.

This one had me signing "Happy Birthday" to all blogs!:    NPR is doing a series on blogging to commemorate the 10th anniversary of blogs.  They’ve got a great mix of audio interviews, articles and information.  Really fascinating stuff.  Hat tip to Susan Reynolds who shared this link with me via twitter.

This one has me saying "duh!": The New York Times declares that blogging is a low cost, high return marketing tool.  Duh.  This flash came to them based on a survey done by American Express.  The article goes on to say that blogging requires writing skills and a time commitment.  I’ll be damned.

    Drew, I’ve also heard that blogging requires a computer and some sort of blogging software. But I could be wrong… 😉

    Thanks for the links though! There are some interesting articles over at the NPR site.

  2. Katie,

    LOL! I believe you’re correct. Who knew?

    Nice to find your “remarkable” blog and chew on some of these ideas. My last post highlighted the nonsense of new year resolutions, but Christine Kane’s idea of a guiding word is facinating. I’ll bookmark and return. David
