Brainstorming Blog Post & Article Ideas

Posted on October 03, 2009 by Blog Design Journal

Do you keep a list of blog post and article ideas? I do. They are great to reference when I get stuck or in a rut when writing. I just look at my post and article idea list and choose one topic off the list to write about. It is a great time saver.

If you do not already have a blog post and article idea list it is easy to create one. Just take a piece of paper and write down every topic you can think of. This should give you a pretty good start. As you think of more topics you can add them to the list.

What happens when you start running out of ideas? Then take a look around on the Internet. There a numerous ways you can brainstorm ideas for blog posts and articles. Below are a few of ways I brainstorm ideas.

1. Read other blogs.

I read other blogs to see what they are writing about. If I find a topic I really like on another blog I add it to my list. If find a certain blog post is getting a lot of traffic and comments I add the blog post topic to my list. With thousands of blog on the Internet it is easy to come up with blog post and article ideas this way.

2. Read Comments on other blogs

Some people leave great comments on other blogs. Often times the comments left on blogs will stark an idea. If a comment gets a reply then that usually means it would be a topic people are interested in so add it to your list.

3. Trending Topics on Twitter

Twitter is the place to be if you are online. Trending topics on Twitter tells you what people are talking about the most. If a topic is a trending topic on Twitter then it must be a popular topic. If any of the trending topics fit within your blogging niche then add the topic to your blog post and article idea list.

By creating a list of blog posts and article topics you are saving yourself valuable time. Next time you can’t think of anything to write refer to your list, choose a topic from the list, and get to writing.
