I am running out of ideas for my blog! (Part 1)

Posted by Tracy Spence On December - 16 - 2010

When we start to blog, our minds are full of great ideas. We are keen and enthusiastic. As we go further down the line, and we know we should be blogging on a regular basis, we come up against “writers block” or in our case “bloggers block”.

So where do we start to look for ideas?

Here are a few suggestions that could help you, but please remember, this should only spark an idea for content that is your own work; do NOT blatantly  copy someone else’s efforts.

1. Think about when you blog: do you use categories to enable your followers to find what they are looking for more easily? Well, other bloggers will do the same. Take a look at blogs from people who inspire you, and see if a category sparks an idea.

2. Look at people’s top ten lists or top ten hints and tips. Again, this may get your juices running a little. Use this to build your content.

3. If a blogger has a list of the most popular posts, take a look and see what made them so popular. See if you can take inspiration from them.

4. Delicious is great for finding content ideas. Simply type in your subject and see what others have written about. You are almost guaranteed an “oh yes, of course!” moment.

5. Similarly, Stumbleupon is also useful. It’s a browser add-on that allows you to browse websites at random. You never know where you may land, and this could lead to some unusual ideas.

6. Look at the most popular posts on Digg.

7. Try looking at BizSugar. This concentrates on small business news and you can get some really good ideas from here.
