My best ideas

Always come to me when I’m swamped with work.  Oh well!

I started this post at the beginning of October.  Here I am a few days in… still swamped with work…  and more ideas for random things just popping into my head all the time.  :)

How do you organize your ideas?  Here’s what I like to do.  I own a few domain names.   One of my web hosting companies allows the use of “catch-all” e-mail addresses.  Basically any incorrectly addressed e-mail to a particular domain will be routed to an address of your choosing.  So, what I do is send an e-mail with part of the idea to myself like so:  “ideas.making.a.million.dollars@DOMAIN.com”.   Obviously, I include a longer description of the idea in the subject line and a detailed description in the body of the e-mail.  Later I can search up all of my “idea” e-mails in one go or search for a particular topic.  I suppose I could do all of this by just creating the “ideas@DOMAIN.com”, but it is pretty nice to be able to search for an idea by the e-mail address too.
