Blogging Tip: How to Find Topic Ideas

by: John Child

If you have a blog, you know that there is nothing more daunting than sitting down, and wondering what in the world you’re going to say in your next blog entry. You kind of have the feeling that if you don’t have something good to say, that no one will want to read it.

So how do you find stuff to talk about? Here are a couple of ideas:

** Be a part of the blogging community. Subscribe to or visit blogs that are similar to yours. You’ll be able to gather an idea about what’s interesting, what’s being talked about, etc. Then you simply offer your own take on that.

** Review products or services. Have you read a good book lately that would fit with your blog? Do you use a particular software program that your readers might want to use? Are there other products you could write about? Simply write your review about some products or services out there. Not only what you like about it, but what you don’t like about it.

** Create lists. People love to read lists. “The Top Ten…”, “The Five Best Ways to…”, etc. Lists are an easy way to get your ideas flowing, plus they make for very popular posts. Think of how you would rank some of the things you are interested in, and use that as a post.

** Use future posting when you’re creative. One of the things I love about WordPress, is that I can write an article when I have a good idea, or when I feel creative, and then post it to be published at a later date. There’s nothing harder than feeling like you have to write. So when you do feel like writing, create a 2 or 3 posts and set them to be published at a later date.

** Read magazines related to your blog. Magazines are great because they always have tons of ideas that people want to read about, that are current. Pick up a couple of your favorites, or subscribe to them. As you sit down to write your blog, pick one up and scan the headlines… you’re sure to find an idea jump out of there.

I could keep going, but I think you get the general idea. You don’t have to have any huge posts or groundshaking new concepts. People subscribe to your blog because they want to hear from you. But now it will hopefully be easier to know what to say.
