Oops, I Forgot

Yesterday I talked about a really great idea that I needed to share. Today I've forgotten which idea it was.
It's now "Staying Motivated Week" in Blaugust. It couldn't be more timely. Here's what's keeping me motivated in blogging right now:
Getting GitAtom into a truly usable state. I have a million things to do today, but instead I'm going to start by finally adding a feed to the software.
Getting back into the swing of blogging. I enjoy blogging quite a bit while actually doing it. I need to remind myself of that by repetition. Humans are not one-trial learners.
Getting things written down. There's an old adage in academia, where I live, that a thing isn't real until you write it down. It's a hard adage for me to live by.
I have a ton of content and content ideas that I want to be up on the web in some semi-persistent form. A blog is kind of a perfect way to do that: low effort, low bar for quality, but still a better result than carrying ideas in my head and telling them to my friends.
I'm going to get the future post ideas queue going again today. It will be full of half-started blog entries. At least it will remind me what my blogging priorities are.
I can't believe I forgot.
