People, especially those I work with, sometimes ask me how I come up with blog post ideas. The ideal way for them to come together is through inspiration. I recently wrote a post called Sea of Consciousness from something I read in The Magic In Your Mind by U. S. Andersen.
I was reading the book before falling asleep a few days ago and came across a passage that just screamed “blog post” at me. I marked the page for the next morning. Once I was up, I sat down and copied the passage into a new post, then let it sit as I moved on to something else.
