How to Come Up with Blog Topics

Coming up with blog post topics is one of the most common issues that both new and experienced bloggers face. When you initially start blogging, you may have a lot of ideas, but as time goes on, you may run out of them. It’s a given that everyone will have writer’s block at some point. Thankfully, blog ideas are littered throughout the internet and in real life. You simply need to know where to hunt for blogging ideas.

Stick to What You Know

Writing what you know is a basic tip for most writers. This allows you to draw on your existing knowledge and skills rather of needing to conduct significant study prior to entering into a new blog topic. Only you can write about your experiences because they are unique to you.

Keep a Journal with You At All Times

Keep a small journal with you at all times to jot down experiences that you might wish to write about later. Keeping a journal or notebook handy will help you develop ideas, inspirations, and motivational moments.

Write Reviews if You’re Comfortable

Many blogs feature product reviews, software reviews, and other types of reviews. Use your blog to inform your readers about something new, cool, or undiscovered. Be fair and honest when writing review blogs. If you despise the product you’re reviewing, that’s great, but make sure you’ve thoroughly tested it.

If you can review products that have not yet been released or have recently been released, a review blog is incredibly popular. You’ll probably have to buy or pay for the things you wish to evaluate when you first start out. However, as your audience grows, you may be able to request free samples to review directly from the organizations.

Offer Advice to Your Readers

Blogging about what you know might also include giving advice or guidance to others who are interested in the same topics as you.

If you run a technology blog, you can provide purchasing advise to people who are looking for a specific product. What characteristics are essential? What exactly should they be on the lookout for?

If you have a dating blog, you can write a “advice column” every now and then, in which you address frequent dating scenarios and situations.

If you run a pet care blog, you can provide tips on how to deal with housetraining a new puppy or how to keep your cat from scratching your furniture.

Similarly, searching for specialists in your field and looking out their contact information online can be beneficial. You can then contact them to check if they are available for interviews and profiles.

Accept Feedback from Readers

You’ll receive readers once your blog is up and running. Some readers will be empathetic, while others will be harsh. Regardless, a reader is a reader, and you wouldn’t have a blog if it weren’t for them. On your website, provide a “Guestbook” or comment section where readers can make recommendations or leave comments. Readers may not realize it, but they may provide you with the best blog ideas.

Another way to come up with blog subjects is to directly ask your audience. What topics do they want you to write about? If you have a series of blog entries on a similar topic, this is a terrific method to do it. It’s simple enough to ask if your readers have a specific issue to address if you have a series of blogs on the same topic.

Don’t Let Negative Feedback or Writer’s Block Deter You

The reason you started writing in the first place was because you thought you had something to say and wanted people to hear it. Even if you start off with a ton of amazing blog topic ideas, it’s not uncommon to encounter a dry spell. Don’t be put off by this.

There are a plethora of fantastic blog ideas simply waiting to be discovered. Begin developing a list of prospective blog post topics for a rainy day using the approaches discussed above. These can be written on a piece of paper, saved to a smartphone app, or stored on your computer as a simple text file.

This way, whenever you visit the blog, you can refer to this list of topics and be prepared to produce some fantastic content.
