I know others have written on this subject, but I guess at the end of the day we all have our own slant on things.

I got introduced to mind maps some time ago as a brain storming idea.

I still use them for that, but these days I also see them as a very useful planning aid.

This is a mind map I recently did for my latest mammoth post I have Just competed.

There are some variances between the post and the mind map but the basic structure is the same

As you can see I starred with a central theme or keyword phrase. I then started planning the itinerary destinations and arranged then I a chronological order. Next i had to create maps for each days journey and then of course what media I was going to use.

This could also be expanded by adding affiliate products, adding to each node hints or ideas of what I wanted to talk about.

Hopefully you can see the potential in mind maps from this simple example. It gave me a plan or MAP to follow.

This mind map was created in an app called "simple mind", I paid for the full version which I use on my PC plus a copy on my tablet. Another free app for PC is "Free Mind".

I personally prefer simple mind now.

Awesome, Mark. I never thought of using the mind-mapping in quite that way. It might work well for structuring my site as well. Thank you!

Thanks Mark for this information. I know mind maps for quite a while, but for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me.
