Lately I walk into the kitchen and forget why I walked in there. What do you forget? Memory is a great news hook. What we humans try to remember gives you great fodder for news story ideas. Case and point: 9/11. If you enjoy living in a free society, the tragic events on 9/11 will never be forgotten and are always big news.
Finally home now after a hundred days in Europe, something occurred to me. I posted 100 blog entries in 100 days on my Facebook page. These generated about a hundred comments a day...and I read all 10,000. It's fun to be in touch with my readers, and to able to share experiences like these in almost real time.
