Blogging Part 3: Blog Content Brainstorming

Face the fact – your blog needs to be regularly updated to maintain its readership! Hence, you must always find fresh topics to write about, and we’re going to discuss how to do just that in this article.

We have discussed how to write attractively, so now we are going to discuss what we are going to write on. The very first option that I think a blogger should write on is a topic that he or she feels passionate and interested in. You’ve chosen to make blogging your career because you want to escape a mundane job – forcing yourself to write about something that you’re not interested in is as torturous as as your mundane job!

The other reason I ask you to write about something you’re passionate about is because your feelings and emotion shows through your writings! If you feel indifferent to a certain subject but still write about it just for the sake of it, your readers will notice it Remember the advice about writing with a personality? Forcing yourself to write will not establish a welcoming style at all.

Once you have chosen your main theme, start posting to your blog about it and make it a habit to post at least once every day, even if it’s only a comment on the newspaper article you read today. Think of yourself as a gigantic train. It takes a lot of effort to get you moving. First, you might just budge an inch, and later trudge slowly on until you finally reach your full speed. Then, it’ll take a lot of effort to stop you instead!

However, no matter how well you know your topic, your brain is bound to get exhausted over some time, so here are methods to brainstorm for content for your blog.

If you have a blog, no doubt at some point in time you will end up dealing with writer’s block. When you post on a blog every day, it can get difficult to come up with new and fresh ideas to write about. The following are some great ideas that will help you find things to write about when you have totally run out of great ideas.

More than likely you change your website regularly, and you can keep your blog readers updated on the changes you need. If you have a new article up on the site, you may want to put an excerpt of the article on your blog. Then you can also add a link to the article on your site so your readers can go read the entire article as well. If you are offering some new services or products, you may want to post about them on your blog as well. Any specials you are running or new news items are great ideas for blog posts as well.

You may also want to check out new news stories that may relate to your business or website. If you are a freelance writer, you may want to find an article which talks about the lack of quality freelance writers out there. If you are working in sales, then you may be able to find an article in the news which talks about the various benefits of a career in sales. Once you find a great article, you can then blog about your feelings on the article and post a link to the article you are discussing.

If there is something interesting going on in your community that your readers may enjoy hearing about, you may want to blog about it. Watch the news and read your daily paper and consider what stories may make good blog posts. If you find stories which you feel they may enjoy reading, then you can make a blog post regarding that article. The best way to do this is to be able to tie in the article to some part of your business as well.
