Reply with quote

Blogs often fail because their owners run out of topics to write about, and in a fit of frustration and writer`s block, they give up. People have trouble coming up with ideas oftentimes, and that`s okay. It doesn`t say anything bad about your ability as a blogger. It just means that you need to come up with a new method of developing ideas.

Here`s a good writer`s best kept secret: when you run out of ideas of your own, look to other people for inspiration. The following are great tips for developing blog topics when your own creativity well comes up dry:

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #1: Go to the Search Engines

I myself have found Google to be very accommodating in providing me with blog topics. Run a search that focuses on your blog`s niche. For example, let`s say that your blog`s niche is tattoos. You may consider typing the following phrases into the search engine:

? How do I get a tattoo?
? I`m having problems with my tattoo
? I need help with my tattoo

Look through the results and see what you find. People read blogs in order to find out information. "How to"-type topics are great, and this is a great way to find them.

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #2: Join a Forum

The majority of Web Sites today have forums. Join forums that focus on your blog`s niche and see what people are talking about, and then make them the focus of your blog. I`ve found that this method usually provides weeks` worth of blog topics.

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #3: Check Out Other Blogs

This doesn`t mean that you should copy their topics. Remember, one of the main ingredients in developing a strong blog readership is to provide topics and content that are unique. However, reading other peoples` blogs usually provides inspiration and often promotes the chance to write about a topic from a fresh perspective that people will enjoy. Again, don`t copy other peoples` blogs!

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #4: Watch the News

Local and national news shows are always abreast of the latest topics and trends in the world. They also provide a plethora of blogging ideas to choose from. You may not always find information that suits your blog`s niches; however, you should still stay tuned in to the news to make sure you don`t miss out on the chance to write about a topic before others do.

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #5: Ask Your Readers

A good blogger always provides a way for his readers to contact him. It`s a great way to build relationships with readers and to keep them coming back. If you feel like you`re running out of blog topics, then ask your readers what they would like to read about.

When you go in search of fresh topic ideas it is important that you do not plagiarize. For starters, it`s unethical, and secondly, it means that your blog is not cutting edge and will not stand out from the many other mediocre blogs on the Internet. It`s common for people to run out of topic ideas for their blog. When this happens to you, don`t panic and don`t give up on your blog. Instead, get creative and let the ideas of other people inspire you.

Tip for Developing Good Blog Topics #6: Check your stats (logs)

Sometimes what you find in your logs is that your site ranks for some keywords that you have no idea about. All you need to do is finetune your Meta tags in order for that keyword to rank well.

For example I made a post in my Migraine Blog about "Prevent Migraines with 3 Minute Neck Massage" and it ended up ranking for Migraine Massage. I fine tunes the site and now it ranks well in Google for Migraine Massage.

Just a little observation and you will get more traffic.

In my opinion, if you create a blog with fresh content and don't promote it, your blog is not going to be visible in popular search engines. In order to get higher rankings in search engine, it is recommended to promote your blog. Here are some tips to do so:

1. Ping Your Blog Post
2. Twitter, Facebook, or Both
3. Post Press Releases to Online Resources
4. Online Niche Communities
5. Promote & Auto Detect Blog Feeds

There is no need to rush and start running if you only have an idea of ​​publishing in mind, a blog takes time and effort to stay permanently active and help you interact regularly with their readers. Make a realistic timeplan movements after defining its main theme, write down ideas for future posts and stick to them. Do not risk losing their hearing due to lack of communication.
