  1. Dear Jennifer:
    I applaud your emphasis on creating a List of 100. I often use this technique to help my writing and content marketing clients.

    Often the first step towards writing a book, or, even more important, blogging a book, is to identify 100 discrete ideas. Once identified and placed in a list, or mind map, they can be organized into chapters and scheduled as blog posts.

    Thank you for highlighting this idea in your very helpful and informed blog.
