On my drive to Dallas, I discovered that XM Radio had a Paul McCartney station. Band on the Run has been re-mastered and rereleased on its 30th anniversary. In addition to all McCartney songs all the time, the station played an interview with Dustin Hoffman and Paul McCartney. Hoffman asked McCartney how he wrote songs. McCartney replied that he kind of just pulled them out of the air. He picked up his guitar, and thinking about an earlier discussion with Hoffman about Picasso, he took “Drink to me, drink to my health. You know I can’t drink anymore” and created the refrain for his song “Picasso’s Last Words.”
I found myself thinking, that was pretty much the way my blog posts write themselves.
Yesterday I was talking with one of my clients who had just returned from a conference. She confessed to me, “as I was jotting down notes from the sessions, I kept thinking this would be a good blog post and that would be a good blog post. Now that we have the blog section up on the website, I’m constantly thinking about it.”
My work here is done.
But it’s true, isn’t it? Where do you get ideas for your blog?
