I had a great idea for a post, my best blogging of the year, in fact. I worked it all out when I was driving, but when I arrived, it was gone.
So I went searching for it, trying out dozens of possible ideas.
I never found it. But I did find five other posts, posts that never would have been worked out if I hadn’t been looking for the other one.
That’s how snipe hunting works. It’s not actually about the snipe.
