I’ve gone through dozens of lists of ideas online. Some were totally irrelevant. Some related more to how to find ideas and get inspiration so I’ve put them aside for maybe another blog post as I wanted to focus on giving you ideas, not ways to get ideas.

This list is full of gems to me, and I hope it is for you to, but there are some real gems of gems in this list and you’re probably going to see some on the blogs in the weeks to come.
