4 Tips to Find Unlimited Blog Post Ideas

Unlimited Blog IdeasThe blogging world can be tricky and daunting, what with the blog that needs to be updated on a frequent basis, getting a lot of readers, building your own readership or fan base and so much more. It is normal if you’re stressing out when the time comes for you to update your blog, especially if you’re desperately in need of ideas. The task of constantly getting ideas may sound impossible, especially when you are suffering from writer’s block or are already burnt out.

However, it is impossible to come up with a good post that will keep your readers reading until the end of the article. There are so many ways for you to do this:

1. Check networking sites and search engines

Depending on your niche, you may find a lot of good topics to write about which are relevant to the industry that you’re currently focusing on. There are so many reliable and informative websites that provide good blog contents as well as ideas, all free of charge.

All you need to do is to search for a suitable keyword that fits your niche in the search engines and you’ll be directed to a lot of sites. You don’t have to open the pages of each and every search result; just scan through the titles on the links given alone and you might be able to get an idea or two. If you see something that is strongly relevant, click on the website’s URL and use the websites to your advantage. For instance, you might want to write reviews about freewares. To search for new freewares, you may use StumbleUpon. You may also use other sites such as Delicious or Yahoo Answers for some blog post ideas. If you have a problem in looking out for ideas, the best place for you to get a head start is by searching through sites like the ones mentioned previously.

2. Be the best interviewer

Have you ever read or heard of a term called “One Question Interview“? You could prepare a list of experts within your niche and send them a question (preferably different question for different professional).

In order to get a positive response from each of the experts, your mail should be impressive and concise enough. The questions posed should not be too offensive. If you’re worried about coming across as an annoyance to these experts, remember that it is always better to try than not to at all. You’d either receive a reply or not, and if you don’t, there is really nothing that you can lose (no, not even your reputation). If you ask a question politely and in a proper manner, people are likely to respond to you in a good way as well.

3. Write about the latest news

A lot happens in a day, so be fully aware of your surroundings. Also, remember to write about the various latest happenings within your niche.

It is highly advisable that you write an article in great detail and don’t forget to add on your own personal views regarding the news. Browse through other websites or blogs for more information. If you’re concern about whether anyone would be interested in the news, just pick the ones that most people can relate to. You will almost never go wrong with quirky or amusing news; everyone would like a good laugh after a hard day at work.

4. Read bloggers and readers’ comments

Reading the comments made by other bloggers and readers is a surefire way for you to get good blog post ideas. Usually ideas will come pouring in if you try and read the comments, as most of the comments made are usually thought-provoking and interesting to be discussed further.

Try going to the popular blogs or even your favorite forums and look out for articles or topics that may have good potential in sparking the interest of other readers, and don’t forget to read the user comments. If there is a question posed by a user which hasn’t been answered, you may link the readers to your site where you offer your point of view in the form of a blog post. Don’t worry about being the “reader stealer” as this method is used very widely sometimes.

In conclusion, practice makes perfect. It may take some time to generate good blog posts ideas but if you start with the pointers offered above, you’ll eventually get in touch with your creative side and be able to write without spending too much time thinking of the topic.

    I have had interesting experiences with news items.
