Ideas for the Draft File

What if you could have a place to put all of your ideas? That place would be the drafts, which you save in your drafts area. You can place all of your ideas there and then, when you are done making a post, you submit. The draft will still stay there. At least that is what you can do to save an idea and use it for later.

I save (in MS Word) a file of ideas but this might be a better way to do so.

Compilations of Old Posts: Reviews

Compilations of Old Posts: Ramblings of weather


Do you think you will use drafts like this as well? To save your ideas for later?

I do this all the time, then I not always go through my ideas, but sometimes they are helpful.

Then why would there be chicken scratchings? You are not handwriting it, so you should be able to read it right?

Yes, as you can see, I was going to compile my old articles on the old site, and then never did so.

I think that's a good idea. So often I get ideas during the day but it's hours or days before I get around to writing about them. I tend to use a text document to store them, but it would be handy to have drafts as well.

While I like the draft feature on this site, I am hesitant to store anything of importance online. I would rather have it on my hard drive or on a flash drive. Definitely, a nice idea, though.

I know others have mentioned using the drafts section this way. I write everything offline, so I'm not likely to do that, but I think it might be an interesting way to deal with the timing of posts. It's not as ideal as having the option to schedule a post, but it comes close! (Again, just a note that we're not supposed to include our PP referral link in posts here. Please check with the mods if you're unsure about this....)

Thanks Ruby3881 I am the same way, usually going offline rather than online to save. But I thought it would be a great way to save ideas.

This is a good idea. A file for all drafts. I'm going to go ahead and try to do this.

Good idea. I use Word to store all of my documents and another program for the pictures I take. I store the pic and article together, this way I know I have Posted them to the right site.

When I had my own computer, I did this in my files, but I also did what I'm doing now, which is to store at least some items in places such as a private blog, my email files, and the like.
