When starting a blog, there are two things that makes it look unique and those things are:
1. The content of the blog and…
2. the topic of the blog.
Well, speaking of the topic is what gives the content meaning. It is one thing to write great content and it is another thing to know what you are writing and making it show via your topic.
Sometimes we run out of blog post ideas and it takes us much time to figure out what to write about.
There are times when I don’t feel of writing and I feel my mind is empty of blog post ideas. What do I do in this case? Well, what I need and I am sure you need too is inspiration and you don’t have to force it out.
Here’s 10 techniques for you to find interesting blog post ideas you can use on your blog when you’ve no ideas.
Well, sometimes bloggers find it difficult to continue from where they stopped, but to make it easier for you, you can run through your mind the next phase after that which you have written and then pin point that thought.
When that is done, your readers will feel you and do what seems right to them for you and your readers.
2. Reading Competitors Blog:
In a blogging business, there is bound to be competitors and all of them are striving to reach their goals, like getting more traffic and increasing the revenue etc.
To get great topics, you can subscribe to their sites, and do some headline scanning. Once this is done, you can write on a similar topic, and also show appreciation to that other site.
3. Write similar to other popular posts:
When you are out of ideas and you want to update your blog with new post than you can write on similar topic to another popular post of your blog.
When it comes to this, I’m a master. I have done this many times.
I did this and I know It works.
4. Try new methods:
You can try new methods also to get blog post ideas. There are so many method for getting information and some of them are YouTube, Google and the rest.
Do you know sometimes It is possible for you to watch a video and in just a short time get your mind full of ideas and you will have hope for more content and more interesting titles.
5. Perform Interviews:
Interviewing other bloggers in your niche or other famous people in your blog is an awesome idea that can not only help you update your blog with a new post, but you’ll also get more exposure..
In one hand by performing interview you are updating your blog and on the other hand you’re building relationship with other bloggers.
6. Write reviews:
Whatever niche you’re in and what do you blog about, there must be products, eBooks and services that you can review on your blog.
If there’s an eBook or a service in your niche, get your hands on it as soon as you can and review it on your blog If you think It’s useful for your readers, checkout my Bluehost review for example.
7. Talk about mistakes that you have made:
It is great to share the mistakes which you’ve made in past and warn your readers to avoid those mistakes. It will make them love your blog even more because you’re helping them in some way by sharing your experience in a particular niche.
8. Share your secret and strategies
Do share your blogging secrets and techniques for anything related the topic of your blog. This way you’ll gain more attention of your readers on your blog.
No matter what niche you’re in, you must be experienced on that and when you share that experience with your readers, that is something which will encourage them to come back to your blog.
9. Ask questions:
I have seen bloggers always asks questions from their readers in the end of every article (Even I also do this) to get comments, but here I want you to make difference.
I’ve read many articles on popular blogs where they’re asking just a question in that post. This is also great in gaining more attention and to start conversation in your blog.
10. Use Google Analytics:
You can get great ideas of what information people are looking for by using Google Analytics and searching for the most popular keywords that are bringing people to your blog.
When I was running a series of Starting a Blog, I mostly used Google Analytics to analyze the popular searches and to find blog post ideas for my blog.
Now I hope you’ve found my blog post ideas to be useful and I’m sure you too have some ideas that you use when you run out of ideas, feel free to let me know by leaving a comment below.
