Hey Andy,

 

A method that works for those that struggle with time and creative block - email conversation posts.

 

Not sure if you're a big sports fan, but I got this idea recently from Bill Simmons, as he created a column, simply based on a thread of email convos with Malcolm Gladwell.

Now this one in particular was longgggggg as hell, this could easy make for 5 awesome posts. While reading it, I noticed how engaged I was in their conversation. 

 

I think if you just set some preemptive guidelines with someone you're conversing with via email, such as ideas/subjects/questions/objectives you hope to accomplish, you can really get a great conversation going. It's a free-flowing conversation, and you just need to reply in small bursts throughout a day or week. Just make sure to provide enough context in your intro for readers.
