Are you having a problem coming up with ideas for your blog posts?

 

It takes determination and persistence to write interesting blog posts that make your blog interesting. You can run contests, review products/books/films, help others with how-to information or courses, write inspirational quotes and motivational posts, make lists such as the top 10 ways to do something, and much more. As you think of more things, keep a running list of your ideas and use them for future posts. You can use these 5 blogging ideas as a starting point.

 

#1 Help others with how-to information or courses

 

If you’re a professional in a particular field or know some topics very well, help the ones who have less skills and experience than you do, by making a comprehensive guide or tutorial.

 

Tutorials and guides provide a lot of value, which can help drive traffic and convert followers. For instance, if you are an experienced blogger you can teach others how to start and maintain a blog.

 

#2 Make lists such as the top 10…

 

People don’t want to waste time on searching and gathering information. That’s the reason lists are popular. Create a TOP10 or TOP30 list. You decide the number. Lists of movies, books, influential people, or any other topic can easily generate buzz.

 

#3 Create comprehensive guides/tutorials

 

You can publish online courses/e-books. If you’re an expert in your field, invest time in writing and publishing courses and e-books. Create quality content, and people will purchase it. If making money is not your objective, publish the content for free. You can use it as a lead magnet for something else you’re promoting.


#4 Research and analyze a topic in your industry

 

Well-written and analyzed posts are great attention getters. Investing time in writing can pay off by increasing the number of your followers. Many professional bloggers invest a lot of time to produce perfect posts.

 

#5 Curate or summarize someone else’s work

 

Write short summaries to bring out the most important aspects or points in other published writings. Some readers are only looking for the most important information, and this helps to save a lot of time.

 

If you read some interesting articles this week, link to the best ones in your blog post as a resource for your readers.

 

Make your readers feel special and honored. Take a couple of minutes to respond to their comments and questions. By doing so, you can get new friends, co-authors or even business partners.

 

By using these 5 blogging ideas – helping others with how-to information, making lists, writing comprehensive guides and tutorials, researching and analyzing topics, and curating others’ works – you can be well on your way to writing many engaging blog posts.
