That said: here's a list of posts I've been talking about but haven't published:
- What artists can teach us about engagement with content
- What VR has to offer us as educators
- A synopsis of key takeaways from reading the book Who Owns Culture by Susan Scafidi.
- More on OER and Creative Commons (IV and V of that series are in my drafts!)
That said, attention to hot/trending topics in the publications and and social-media communities of practice also provide clues to the timeliness of a topic.

Wordpress also has an editorial calendar plug-in. In discussing it's use with a colleague, she noted it did not work the way her brain does, so she has not used it. Which brings us back to the key point about the calendar--the tech is a product that might help you capture your thinking, but most important is the process of thinking about the topic, the audience, and the prime timeline related to their interests.
And now, looks like I'd better set myself some dates around my content.
