One of the biggest concerns for bloggers is deciding what they are going to write about, day in-day out. It’s easy to sit down in front of your PC and just not be able to come up with any ideas at all. You know the clock is ticking but your brain just gets frozen and before you know it, an hour has gone by and you haven’t even typed anything.
One way I personally find helpful is to have a series of posting methods written down in front of me. I can then look at these methods and can usually come up with some good ideas really quickly.
Here are some of the methods I use:
Tip #1 – Top XX Tips
This is a common idea and widely used in article writing. The method is to come up with a certain number of tips to solve a problem or explain how to do something.
Let’s say you have a blog on dogs. You could write “Top Ten Tips For House Training Your Dog”, or “Top 5 Ways To Train Your Dog To Walk Without Pulling”. All you do then is to have a quick search online or in Ezinearticles.com and rewrite some tips you find into your content.
Of course, if you are an authority in your market, then you won’t need to rewrite the content as you will already know it.
Tip #2 – Top XX Resources
This involves making a small list of resources that will help your readers solve a problem or that will be useful for them. You just write a small introduction, and then list the resources and link to them. You can write a small description if your list is small to make things more valuable.
So this would be “Top 5 Dog Training Websites”, “Best 3 Sites For Free Dog Tips”. Just get your list together and link to them.
To make things even better, try and link to blogs only. This should lead to some trackbacks and even more free traffic from the blogs in your list.
Tip #3 – Find A Problem & Solve It
It doesn’t take long to find a problem in any niche market. Just head over to Yahoo Answers or do a quick search in Google for the name of your niche and add the word problem after it.
Find a problem and then find a solution for it via searching for it or you may even know the answer yourself.
You can also use a combination of the tips above
Find a problem and list several other blogs that have the solution.
These are just a few ways of creating blog content you can use if you ever have that brain frozen moment yourself.
