    So one of the areas I’ve experimented the most in is the comments section. I’ve tried third-party comment systems (then switched back ); video and audio comments; and commenter social profiles with Twitter and latest blog post options amongst other experiments. This is where, if you like the post enough, you can share it with your own networks (Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, etc). I’ve messed around with a few options here too. This post was mentioned on Twitter by Social Media Guide, Jalebi. And still I stay undecided at times. Yet is this too much?

    Would anyone want to post this to Facebook or Twitter? A small diner in the northeast had a popular dish and an owner who could have easily been elected mayor if he wasn’t obsessed with making people smile with their mouths full. Over the years, he’d perfected his clam chowder recipe – focusing on finding the best ingredients and carefully preparing each bowl by hand – and the locals thanked him with their dollars and their loyalty. Word spread about the famous clam chowder and people would drive dozens of miles out of their way just to get a bowl on a cold winter day. At first.

Too often we think of creativity as a complicated process that only works when the stars align – when everything is just right. The truth is you can make them align if you develop a habit of intentionally noticing more than you do now – and connecting things. Connect What is Similar But Different.
