Getting Ideas for Your Blogs and Articles
Well to start off with I am not a full-time blogger, I have a day job, and work from nine to six to pay my bills and have a decent life. This leaves me with little to no time to do researchers and find good subjects. Taking also into consideration the fact that I am not a natural born writer. Hearing this, it might be hard to believe that I still find time to update my blog several times a week with good information, It might not be the top post, but still good and helpful for many readers. How many of you find yourself in this situation? Below I will list some things that I do to find good subjects and keep my blog rolling.
Blog about something you like and / or enjoy! This is the most important thing that helps me come up with new info every week. It really does not matter if a bunch of blogs already exists out there talking on the same subject, because if you will blog about something you like and enjoy, you will never run out of words. You can narrow down your ideas to subjects that you might have personal expertise with. It will also be easy to come up with new ideas for article every day, because you yourself will be looking for new information about your passion on the web.
Bookmark and visit the top sites from your niche: Maybe this sounds quite strange because maybe all of you are already doing this. In my one year period of blogging I was able to bookmark more than 60 sites, once I had discovered a new sites that I thought was worth visiting. Remember there are a lot of people out there that share your passion, do not hesitate, bookmark blogs that relate to yours and they might the favor. I actually chat with a few of them once in a while to bounce of ideas.
Find ideas from the comments you receive: I do not really receive a lot of comments, but the ones I do receive are good quality. I think I was able to write more than 10 articles from a 100 through inspiration of other bloggers commenting. Just the other day I wrote an article about Free Tips on Advertising. This idea was generated through a blogger asking me to list a few ad ideas for him.
Subscribe to the blogs you consider worthy: By subscribing to their email list and feeds, you will be able to get more more ideas faster and get informed faster than just searching the blogs. With ideas coming in you should be able to write more articles in a shorter period of time. Of course, you can not subscribe to the whole list of bookmarked sites but at least the top 10 will do. Choose wisely, try to pick the ones that you could definitely refer to.
Conclusion: These are the things that I am doing to get ideas for new articles, and keep my blog updated. I hope this advice will help some of you. Remember you always need a place to start from, start by looking through other blogs or your older blogs. All ideas do not have to come from the internet either, chat with a few friends, they might offer some help.
