  6. Trending topics – what’s in the news? These types of topics are great because they are timely and relevant.
  7. Join a blogging challenge that provides blogging prompts
  8. Go back and see if you can update and re-write and old blog post
  9. Write a part 2 or part 3 to an older blog post
  10. Do a hashtag search on twitter and see what others are writing about
  11. Have a look at what hashtags are trending

  14. Write a ‘how to’ post
  15. Write a ‘Top 10’ post
  16. Have a look at what influential bloggers in your niche are writing about and put your spin on it
