In my last blog I wrote about blogs and it got me thinking. Since I started blogging on the empower network every day, sometimes it is a challenge what to write about. It is also the question I get from people when I tell them about the empower network and the blogging system. In one way it doesn’t really matter
Blog topics are an important part of a successful blog. I noticed that some bloggers simply write about whatever is on their mind, creating sort of an online journal. Successful bloggers know however that to have a great blog, you cannot always write about what you want to write about. You must also keep the interests of your readers in mind when writing. After all, if you want a successful blog, you have to depend on the readers to show up often. To keep your blog as fresh as possible, consider using these five ways to find winning ideas for your blog topics, it always helps me.
5 tips for the perfect blog
Tip 1: Do your research
Each day there are popular search terms listed on large search sites. I use the keyword tool from google. These search terms will help you to get more traffic to your blogs. I search everyday for these popular terms. If you are lucky, it will increase the traffic to you blog due to more people looking for that term. By researching the topics that are hot with readers each day, bloggers can create things specifically for the readers. Doing research may take a little time and you might not always be writing about what you want to write about, but you will likely have more traffic than ever. The nice thing about doing research is that you come across topics you maybe don’t know much about. It get me reading and search some more. There is a whole world waiting for you!
Tip 2: Ask around
If you have been blogging for a while you might come to that point where you really don’t have any idea what to write about. Some call this “writer’s block” while others just see it as a small hurdle to be surpassed. What I do if I come to this difficult point and belief me I came here more than ones! The best thing to do is ask around. Talk to interesting people you know. You can ask them what topics they find most interesting at the time. If you would rather be a little more subtle, simply bounce a few topics off of them to see which ones they respond strongly to. Use the topics that they respond strongly to in order to gather ideas for posts. Easy as that!
tip 3: Use the News
Watching the news is a great place to gather topic information for your blog. The items are most likely hot. And you don’t have copy the story, just use the topic idea along with you own words, with your opinion.
tip 4: Follow the lead of others
When you are looking for great blog topics, consider visiting popular blogs to see what they are talking about. Don’t steal their ideas, but use the visit to stir up great ideas of your own. Sometimes when you see others working at their highest potential it can spark new potential in yourself. You can see which topics get the best response for their blog and decide if you could get the same response with a similar topic.
Tip 5: Sleep on it
If all else fails and you are still trying to come up with a list of interesting blog topics, consider this interesting strategy. Go to sleep each night with a clear head. In the morning, before you even open your eyes, target the first thing on your mind. Write it down immediately so you don’t quickly forget. Then use these things to develop interesting blog topics. You would be shocked at how inspiring our first thoughts can be. They are so interesting because they are not clouded with any outside stressors from reality. They are simple thoughts typically that can be used successfully on a blog.
I find these five ways to find blog topics very helpful. My experience is that a blog topic is one of the basic important aspects of your blog. If you have written a lot of blogs, you also see which topics get the best response on your blog so you will know which ones are most effective. Use all or some of these tips to help you get on your way to better blog topics right away!
