A Day Of Giving

Hello Alton Brown Fans!

If you found this link from his site, welcome!

The post which he linked to is included below but only mentioned Alton Brown because of the baked egg recipe from which you came. The other stuff on this post and most of my blog is about ideas.

Ideas are great for sharing and spreading and being a positive influence on people around you. If you want to know more about why I blog about ideas, check out my book.

As for the post he linked to, you will find that below:


Days 91-180 of Claudia’s book Become An Idea Machine are about giving away your idea. Only problem is….

I had yet to do so…

Until TODAY!

I am feeling so happy to be able to give away my ideas today.

For Day 96 I was supposed to come up with 10 ideas for article I could write that can make a difference. If I have time I will do that too but I wanted to share with you what else I have done already today:

I came up with 10 ideas for blog posts and gave them away!

My wife has a blog sarahpaine.com and was saying just the other day how she is not sure what to write about sometimes. So I decided to help her with my idea machine skills and came up with 10 ideas for blog post and gave them to her.

Not such a big deal, but this next one is awesome…

On my blog stats page I saw I had a new referrer. It was a couple of views from ideas-a-day.com. These folks so kindly linked to my humble blog here and so I checked out what it was they were up to.


And it is amazing!

They are helping people come up with ideas to write ideas about each day. I.E. Themes of what to write about. I am sure to be visiting them in the future for more ideas about ideas. In fact they have a cool way to submit themes to give back to the idea community.

I was so excited to help give theme ideas that instead of just filling out the form one at a time I found out how to email them via their Feedback button and sent them a list of these 20 themes!

Here is the email:

Michael (aka StrangerArray)

Am I Bragging?

Not directly. Mostly I am excited to GIVE my ideas away and hadn’t had a chance to do so yet these past few days. So this has gotten me pumped up and excited about the next 85 or so days left. Already my world is changing all around me and I am sure it will continue to do so in the future.

Here is my call to action for you my dear reader:
