Where to Find Blog Post Ideas

Blog topics can come from many different sources.  But where do you get your blogging ideas?  Here is a bit of inspiration for you.

1.  Other blogs

Read and subscribe to other blogs and then elaborate on their ideas.  You probably will read something and say, “Yes, but….”.  Write about it and let us know your thoughts.  Don’t take someone’s ideas and call them your own.  Add to their ideas and link to the original blog so the author gets some of the well deserved credit for their work.

2. Newspapers and magazines

Everyone reads at least one newspaper or magazine.  What did you find interesting?  What made you think a little bit?

3.  Middle of the night ideas

Keep a little notebook handy.  Ideas can come to you at the oddest times.  When was the last time you had a great idea in the middle of the night, at the grocery store, or while talking on the phone?  When that idea comes to you, write it down so you don’t forget about it.  When you want to write a blog post, just go to your little book to see what you have been thinking about.

4. Snippits

Snippits are great.  They are part of a conversation you hear as you walk down the street.  You only hear about 2 or 3 seconds of a conversation and don’t really get the whole gist of what is going on, but you can take that snippit and make it into a great blog post.  What did it mean to you?  What do you think the conversation was about?  What did it remind you of?

Lately it seems that everyone has a blog.  You need to make yours informative and original in order to get and maintain a steady flow of constant readers.  Inspiration can come from anywhere.  Hopefully I have given you a few ideas on where to find it.
