Coming up with blog post ideas can be a daunting task. Especially if you have a specific target audience, or subject topics are scarce. Sometimes having many topics can be a problem. But there is always a way around it. Below are some sure-fire ways in coming up with blog post ideas.
Keeping up with current affairs
Keeping up with current affairs can help in coming up with blog post ideas. Pick a problem the average man faces every day, and then write about it. People like to come to others for help.
When they realize that they aren’t facing these issues alone, they feel included. Write your own opinion and be helpful in the way you express it. People like to hear other’s opinions on every issue, regardless of whether they agree with it or not. If nothing else, it can be entertaining.
Answer a question
Answering a question is a great way to start a blog post. Look at other blog posts and see what people are asking. Or better yet, do you have any questions that you would like answered?
Pick a question and answer it in a fresh post. The readers will find the content invaluable and educational.
What are you good at? Can you share that information in an easy-to-understand helpful way.
If you are stumped, a good way of coming up with blog post ideas is to teach your readers something. Whatever you are good at, try teaching it to someone else.
If you are good at sewing, write a post about how to sew a scarf. If you are good at writing, write a post about how to create an essay outline.
The hardest task is figuring out whether you know about something well enough to benefit others.
Lists are easy-to-read- posts. Readers like them, because it makes sorting through content easier to find the information you need.
The good thing about lists is that you have a lot of room for creativity. You can write lists on various subjects. They are also easier to write than articles, because you only have to write a few words for each point.
Fill in a headline
If all else fails, coming up with an attention-grabbing headline is a good way to come up with a blog post idea.
There are plenty of templates to help you create a title that grabs the readers’ attention. Below are a few examples:
• Top __ Ways to ______
• 10 Things You Never Knew About ____
• 3 Myths About _____ Busted
Fill in the headline with your topic and then write the post based on the title. Make sure your content matches the subject title. If you stray off topic, changing the headline would be important.
Hopefully these points will help you in coming up with blog post ideas. Feel free to share your thoughts and add more suggestions.
