Getting Your Ideas Organized With Mind Mapping
August 20, 2012 2 Comments
If you’re like me, you have created your blog and looking to create great content. With that being said, I have so many ideas I want to write about and not sure where to start. I needed a way to focus my efforts on an idea and write the best content that I can. Having organized ideas usually leads to successful execution. I needed to find a way to become organized with my ideas. Then I stumbled upon Mind Maps
What is a Mind Map?
Well according to Wikipedia it is “A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision-making, and writing.”
There are several different programs/apps that will help you out. One of my favorites is iMindMap. I will provide several others at the end of this post.
How Mind Maps Works For You
The best thing about mind maps is that you get all your ideas in place. Having all your ideas in one location, help you not only see them on paper, but allow you to organize an approach to delivering get content to your blog. Basically your documenting your brain and the way your brain works with allows for better organization in the long run. If your interested in writing an E-Book here is a great article from Darren on Problogger about using Mind Mapping for creating a E-Book.
Here is an example of a Mind Map. As you can see it is broken out by passions. Each line for the center goes to a different main idea. From that main idea its going into other “descriptive areas”. These subsections can make great blog posts. Of course you will have to do some investigations on the topics to see which one would make killer blog posts. With mapping your mind your ideas just flow out and can give you unlimited organized ideas.
