Bloggers always need some ideas to keep up their blog running. It is always more than a necessity to keep posting new articles/tutorials on their blog to taking the blog to the next level. Today, I thought that all the bloggers should know the ideas to keep posting articles on their website/blog. The source of idea is as important as writing a great article. Let’s see some 10 amazing post ideas one can gather from.
1. Find your inspiration –
Inspiration is the highest rated factor to keep going on further with your site or anything for that matter. For example, I started this blog out of many inspirations I’ve come across on the internet and outside. Your inspirations maybe from your friend, family members, colleagues, successful bloggers and so on. Find the right one to set up the fire burning. You definitely need that fire to keep going and succeed.
“Find your zeal and enthusiasm to succeed on your goal”
2. Read Books/Magazines/Newspapers –
I seriously say, believe me you can get a lot of information by reading books or magazines or newspapers. Let’s say that your blog is about cooking, you can come across a different recipe on a cooking magazine or a newspaper article.
3. Watch and Listen –
When something is depicted pictorially, you learn more from it. You tend to visualize things the way it should be. Watching a podcast on YouTube can definitely teach you a lot. Listening is equally important to as watching or reading. Why not write your experience and learning after watching and listening to a podcast on TV or YouTube?
4. Learn from others –
If you are not an expert on a subject, but you want to start a blog on the subject. Then, it is time to learn from the experts. Internet is full of professionals, experts, and geeks. Internet is a great place to learn new things. Read other’s blogs, interact with them and ask for more.
5. Ask and Gather information – Google Magic
You see that the above words “Ask” and “Gather” are stressed. Ask questions to yourself daily. Why? How? When? What? Where? Search for the answers to your own questions from Google. Open a notepad/word doc to take down the points what you have gathered. Compose the article or post once it is time to shoot.
Note – You can also ask questions from others (Friends or Family)
6. Be in touch with Fresh Source –
Keep yourself updated on your niche. For example, if your niche is about SEO then bookmarking a site like seomoz is a great way to kick start. That was just an example 🙂
There are super top performing sites/blogs on every niche where you can be touch of new and fresh information.
7. Subscribe to Newsletter –
This is a superb method to get ideas to your mailbox daily or weekly. If your topic of choice or blog is about mobile phones, there are cool websites which offers newsletter delivery to your mail boxes as and when a new product is reviewed. You get ideas at your door step.
8. Join Forums –
Joining a forum on your niche can get you to learn new things daily by your interactions there. Even the latest news may not be known to you because you forgot to read your newspaper, but from forums, the news are easily briefed up quickly to get an idea. New ideas come up by interactions.
9. Set up a Suggestion box –
Make friends on the blogosphere to get some suggestions from them quickly. Setting up a suggestion form on your website is highly recommended. Though, my blog doesn’t have one as of now. Maybe I still have some ideas left in me or maybe am doing the above suggested methods. 🙂 But, I would like you guys to set up one for yourself to get new ideas from your site’s true fans. You even set up a survey on your site.
10. Think and Rethink –
Last but not the least, think after doing the above 9 methods. If you stop thinking, then you would end up with nothing but empty hands. Once you execute at least some of the above methods, stop for a while, sit alone and think deeply. This way, I bet you would generate many creative ideas for your next article.
Mix up on what you have learnt to come up with a new idea for the next post.
Note – Meditation of 10min daily morning can help you think creative.
Best of luck guys 🙂 You guys are gonna rock the floor. Thanks for reading the article. Do come back again tomorrow.
