Bad ideas are
Nothing at all.
And we all know that having
nothing will get you absolutely nothing in return. And when you have
nothing you'll end up with nothing, nada, zippo. . .
With nothing you
have nowhere to go and nothing to do.
Now that is the epitome of a bad

among humans as it is among Gnomes.
I will happily share one of the
important passages on thought from this highly revered book with you.
How do you get website ideas?
You go catch them of
(Although I've heard rumors that some humans
give birth to their ideas.
. . how icky!)
A word of warning:
Ideas can be very tricky to catch
sometimes. You see, ideas can be quite stubborn. They can bury
themselves and hide in the deepest chasms of your mind; they can be
fleeting, elusive, insubstantial whispers that dart around teasingly
begging you to give them notice just to slip away before you can quite
grasp it; or they can be lost in a big messy, writhing mass of a
million thoughts just waiting for you to uncover "the right one" for
So what do you do if that happens to you?
Put on your ever so darling red pointy thinking hat (You are welcome to
borrow mine if you can't find yours!) then enlist your brain cells to
join in on your search and discovery mission.

have something. Even a half-baked idea is a start. I've even been known
to put my website ideas on the back burner to percolate a bit more but

burnout can be paralyzing.
I keep all my
most precious website ideas safely tucked away on scraps of paper. An
idea is your e-ticket to webmaster cyber eheaven. (With the "e"
and of course, earnings.)
How do you turn an idea
You simply sort out all those ideas and cash in the best ones for your
e-ticket. You use the e-ticket to capitalize on the very best ideas.
Your idea is what will get you going. Your idea is your springboard for
your site concept. Your idea allows you to give birth (not the icky
kind mind you) to your new and exciting edventure which
will lead you
to your ebusiness.
It all starts with your business website ideas.
you know that Gnomes just love
to inspire edventures?
I bring my business website ideas along with me
everywhere I go. They keep me entertained with exciting new
possibilities. They provide me with new opportunities. They help me
launch a brainstorm for a whole new set of website ideas.
