Here are some of the ways I come up with fresh content ideas for both my blogs and they might just help give you a little bit of inspiration.
- Read the newspaper
- Read magazines
- Talk to people. What topic was everyone talking about at mothers group or your local social club?
- Listen to the radio
- Write about everyday experiences
- Trending topics – what’s in the news? These types of topics are great because they are timely and relevant.
- Join a blogging challenge that provides blogging prompts
- Go back and see if you can update and re-write and old blog post
- Write a part 2 or part 3 to an older blog post
- Do a hashtag search on twitter and see what others are writing about
- Have a look at what hashtags are trending
- Crowdsource – ask your audience what they’d like to read about
- If you keep notes like I do, have a look back through them and see if there’s anything juicy you could share.
- Write a ‘how to’ post
- Write a ‘Top 10’ post
- Have a look at what influential bloggers in your niche are writing about and put your spin on it
