Tips on How to Get Ideas to Blog About
Here are some tips on coming up with interesting blog topics:
Go to www.q94radio.com and listen to the "Five things you need to know" or search for the "Five things you need to know" on a search engine and find out what the top stories of the day are.
Blog Talk Radio is also a good resource to gain new topics. You can sign up for a free account or sign up for a premium account, which offers more features.
Brainstorm ideas on a sheet of paper or on your computer. Write down one topic and branch out from it. Give yourself a minute to relax and concentrate on coming up with ideas.
Pull from your everyday life and experiences. Have you had an experience or been through something other people could relate to? Write about something significant in your life that other people may be able to relate to. Were you adopted? Did your parents divorce? Have you lost someone in your life? Think about something personal and it will be easy to write about what you went through and how it affected you.
Write about something current in the news or world that you've heard about on the radio, TV or internet.
Write about the next upcoming holiday. You could even write about a strange holiday or funny day that is observed, like "Talk like a pirate day", or "National Joe Day." National Joe Day is on March 27th and is for those who want to change their name and be the "average Joe" for a day.
Keep a journal of ideas for interesting blog topics. This way when you feel creative, you can write your ideas down to write about later when you are lacking inspiration.
If your blog focuses on one specific topic, do an internet search on that topic on Google, Yahoo! or another search engine and see if you can find interesting blog topics you haven't blogged about yet.
If you have a loyal following of readers, ask your readers what they would like to hear or know more about.

Review something, whether it is a book, a restaurant or a product. It could be something you own or a service you use. No matter what you choose, give a thorough review of the product/service. Many people want to read reviews of products and services before they purchase them.
