When there is no idea for a new blog post – it means no more eyeballs. Sometimes it feels hard and to find. but if you follow these 4 simple steps you will never run out of ideas.
1. Surfing the Internet
Surfing the internet is always a good idea to get some ideas. You never know when an idea can strike you.
Go to your favorite sites.
Check out some articles on some of the news and social media sites like Mashable and TechCrunch. They always have great articles to share and you might just get lucky.
2. Check out your fellow blogger’s blogs
You could always check out some of your friend’s blogs and see what they have shared. Maybe even comment on them.
Try going through some of their old posts. Look for some posts that may interest you.
If you think you have something new to share about that old post, then go ahead. Maybe even link to your friend’s old post.
That way your visitors will know both the old version and the new version of the topic.
3. Scan through comments on other blogs
You might think this is weird. But this has actually helped me a lot of times. Visit some of the top authority sites like basicblogtips.com or comluv.com.
Try scanning through their comment section and observe what people have shared. You never know you might get an idea from there.
It also has its advantages you know. You will also learn some of the public demands. Since they are commenting on an authority site, you will get some general idea about what the general public expects from your blog.
Try scanning blogs that have commentluv enabled on them. It will be easier for you to see the post titles.
4. Search randomly in Google
Well, if none of the above works for you then I would suggest you make a random search about anything you want. This has helped me a few times.
You never know what you may like from one of the search results. Try scanning 2-3 pages to see if you may like something from the title.
An idea can strike you from anywhere. So, just be prepared for it. If an idea strikes you when you’re not in front of your computer, at least write down the title of that idea somewhere or save it on your mobile in draft messages. That way, you won’t forget about the idea.
