It’s relatively well known to those who know me best that I carry a notebook just about everywhere I go. I scribble notes and sketches on anything that intrigues me. I heard it said once that some of the smartest people in the world have carried a little notepad with them everywhere they went. Well, I’m not smart, just a copycat with no memory whatsoever. So, I scribble for sanity.
I have been furiously jotting notes in my handy dandy notebook lately. Notes on community, WordPress, blogging, forums, plugins, photos, cell phones, clients, our stories, etc. The problem is that I am in desperate need of some people to bounce ideas off of. Not just smart people or computer geeks (although they are very welcome indeed), but everyone. I need people to help guide my efforts. I want guidance as to what people think is important to work on. Ideas, thoughts, questions. “Why doesn’t this exist yet?” should be the norm. “Can it exist?” will come next. If I can build it and people think it’s worth my time, I’ll be happy to give it a try.
The Solution: You!
I don’t know the answer yet. What I do know is that you can help. It won’t just be helping me, but helping yourself. Do you have a great idea? Not sure if it can be done or should be done? Let’s strike up a conversation and find out. If it’s worth doing and I have the resources to, I’ll try it. If not, no worries… at least we got to talk about it. Either way helps both you and I refine our ideas, get them out into the open, and start talking about how things should be.
So, let’s begin shall we? What should be “out there”?
