There's probably a much more organized way to do this, but it's quick and it works. I group the emails by topic and add several links to each email as I find new things. I probably email myself more than anyone! Because of these emails, I always have way too many ideas for blog posts than I could possibly ever have time to write.
Why am I telling you this? Because when I check my sitemeter, I see that one of the big searches that brings people here is for blog post ideas. And I didn't even write the post! It's a wonderful guest post by K called 25 Great Blog Post Ideas.
Since people seem to be constantly looking for blog post ideas, I decided that maybe I should write a post about the topic as well. And I guess this post is kind of a Show and Tell, because it's a post within a post.
One of my favorite types of posts to read and write is a roundup with no particular rhyme or reason. Just a list of random fun and beauty! Joanna Goddard, who writes the blog, A Cup of Jo, has mastered the art of the fun roundup!
The picture above of the orange scooter has nothing to do with anything. I love the color orange and I adore scooters. I saw this one today and took a picture of it for no particular reason other than it put a smile on my face.
I'm not sure that I've mastered the art, but below are a few things that have caught my eye. And this shows my take on the fun roundup!

~ I saw the Clover Food Truck near South Station! It's fast food that's local, just-cut, and sometimes organic. I didn't get a chance to eat anything from there today, but I'm looking forward to it next time.
~ The new Boston Food Bloggers Blog!
~ Pillows by Comfort & Samuel.
~ My Etsy Favorites.
~ Tracy's mala bracelets.
~ A positive article about women's friendships after reading one that was not.
~ The idea of a party in a box and boys in a box! Don't worry; it's rated G!
~ Recipes with pumpkin and sweet potato.
~ Creative Social Responsibility in action with free short-term accommodation for visiting creators at Creators Inn in Gothenburg, Sweden. I wonder if there is anything like this in the United States?
~ Loved listening to The Story Behind 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' on Fresh Air with Terry Gross. And now I have to see the movie, Meet Me in St. Louis, with Judy Garland.
~ This picture on flickr.
~ Love the name, mug shots, and business concept of On The Lamb. I bet I'd love the food too, if only I were in Los Angeles! They produce "invitation only food & beverage experiences as well as private events for clients.
