Thanks for mentioning the post. Glad you liked the notebook idea. I can't tell you how many ideas I would have forgotten without the notebook.

Here's a bonus tip - Tweet about ideas when you see them. If you tweet on a regular basis, you can not only go back and look at your history, but also see which topics people have been most interested in.
