Renaissance People Mind Map

Mind Map Monday: Renaissance People

Mind maps are an excellent way to come up with a tonne of ideas for populating a blog. Whether you write for fun or for pay, having a blog can bring more people to your website—but you have to have regular content coming out to keep people interested. That’s where coming up with as many ideas as possible for each category of your website helps a great deal.

Today, I’m sharing my mind map for the Renaissance People category of this website. I actually call it MultiTalented People on here—since the website is all about MultiTalented Writers.


Mind Map about renaissance people, with "renaissance people" in the middle, and lots of related words connected to it via lines.


If you write about multipotentialites, scanners, or renaissance people (those all mean the same thing), here are some of the posts you might want to write. Feel free to steal any of these ideas and make them your own!

You could write about the terminology used to describe people with multiple interests.

You can write about how Emilie Wapnick’s TED Talk and website help the modern “multipotentialite” find their people and accept their diverse personality.

You could write about how Barbara Sher’s “Refuse to Choose” book helps people with multiple interests to understand how they can use this to their advantage.

You could write about how Margaret Lobenstein advocated for freedom to choose it all long before the idea was starting to gain momentum.

You could write a post comparing and contrasting these women’s ideas, or you could write a series of posts, talking about each of these authors in turn.

Write about projects from the perspective of MultiTalented people

MultiTalented People tend to take on a lot of things at once, which can lead to a lot of unfinished projects. You could write about how multipotentialites can better finish what they start, or you could go the other way and explain why people shouldn’t always finish what they start. You could also write about how to organize multiple projects, and interview project managers if you feel so inclined.

Write about classic & modern-day renaissance people

You could write about renaissance people in history and the legacy they’ve left for us, or you could write a series of posts about modern day renaissance people—like the series I’ve been writing about multi-genre authors.

You could write about popular thinkers in this space—thinkers like Barbara Sher, Emilie Wapnick, and the late Margaret Lobenstein.

Write about business & MultiTalented people

You could write about why renaissance people make good writers. Or you could write about why people with multiple interests do well in today’s workplace—a workplace that often demands employees wear various hats. In the same vein, you could write about why MultiTalented people do well as entrepreneurs.

Write about lifelong learning and MultiTalented people

MultiTalented people often want to learn about various subjects. I often say that if I had unlimited money, I’d spend it on 3 things: travel, handmade items, and as many courses as my heart desired.

No one’s made of money, though, so a post about how MultiTalented people can learn everything they want for free would be well received. You could provide links to free courses on places like Udemy or Coursera.

Write about MultiTalented people and social skills

You could write about the difficulty MultiTalented people have answering the question “what do you do?” and offer alternatives to that useless question.

There are so many things to think and write about when you’re a MultiTalented Writer.
