In most cases, when I blog, I am not doing creative writing. When I blog, I am normally storing and sorting ideas. I later return to some of those ideas and hone them into poetry, picture books, and other types of creative writing.
When I initially blog, I allow myself to merely get the ideas down. When I blog, I allow myself total writing freedom. In that way, my self-editor does not kick in and I do not strangle my own ideas–long before they have the time to hatch.

Use your blog’s categories, tags, navigation, menus, and search devices to find those ideas later and alchemize them into gold.
