It very common for people having trouble always to find things to post about on blogs, so I thought I share some valuable tips how you can find ideas to write about based on my experience.
Here are 5 key ideas and questions you can use to get your post running
1. Write about what you did today at work or at home
Most often people will not bother about what you actually do or achieve, but one thing I noticed when you blog about something you are complaining about or talking nice about someone, there are people actually interested in these stuff and people will actually comment to agree!
Caution when you blog about those topics, not to put in names or companies names to prevent being sued. A famous local blogger named XieXue actually talks about the government and uses lots of bad words and interestingly there are people so interested in her blog. She currently get daily 10,000 visitors just to listen about her lifestyle, seems like she is another Paris Hilton but Singapore version.
2. Compile a list of 5 problems you encounter about your business or work and write about them
You can actually sit down and compile 5 of your latest problems and you can write about the current problem people faced or if possible also include in solutions to the problems. The better you are at blogging about solving people’s problems your blog content will be of more quality.
3. Review people’s blog
When I first started, I did not know what to write as what many bloggers are facing daily. So the next thing I would do was talk about other people’s blog.
Here are a list of thing you can talk about other people’s blog
- – What you learn their blog
- – Why do you actually frequent that blog?
- – Talk about topics the blogger talk about
4. Read articles online and duplicate content
I love to do this the most as I not only improve my knowledge but about able to generate more ideas for my business. Normally what I would do is visit a article directory and just type in the keyword I am interested to blog about.
Next I will read about 2 to 3 articles and I will copy their content but rephrase them into my own words. Warning about doing this, you cannot copy any sentence from the article as in the past I got a complain email just by copying 1 sentence of an article so do ensure you rephrase every word there is.
5. Blog about your experience
I find this the most meaningful and you will be surprised when you started to blog about your experience, people will be able to relate to what you write and respond!
But do not simply blog about good experiences you must also share bad experiences too so that you can tell people what to avoid when you blogging it.
So that’s 5 ideas you can use to gather more content for your blog, if you find this post useful just drop a comment on my blog.
