Since I started this blog I have usually had a post idea or two in my pocket for when the time comes to write a post. However this week the three post ideas I have are taking a little longer to develop than I had anticipated ... so I was stuck with no pearls of marketing wisdom to impart on you!
It occurred to me that I often contribute interesting view points (well I think so anyway) to conversations on other posts that I could, instead of contributing to the conversation, hold back and develop the idea/point into my own blog post.
An example is a comment I made at Consumer Psychologist where Adam Ferrier commented that "I think people with a history in social media who want careers in marketing and communications should get educated in the broader aspects of human behaviour and marketing. Please. Some of the comments people are making in this space are at best naive".
You can read my comment here. As I was writing the comment I almost stopped and kept it to develop into my own post but then decided that would be against one of the general concepts of blogs - to create conversations.
So I am wondering, do you wrestle with the same problems? Do you often start to write a comment on someone’s blog but then keep it for your own post development? Do you have a trick where you can contribute and create at the same time?
