Other than time to write the actual article, coming up with content ideas day in and day out is one of the most difficult tasks a blogger faces.
There are times when I just sit there staring at the screen and couldn’t come up with one word, while there are others times when I can keep writing and writing.
5 Best Ways to Get Blog Post Ideas For Beginners [Year]
Through the last few years of blogging, I’ve found a few ways that seems to work:
1. Magazines and Newspapers
Many of us already read written media every day, which creates a natural way for blog articles. In fact, I was reading a few articles in magazines which led to the idea of this article.
If you are quoting or adding to another article’s idea, it is only appropriate if you give credit to the original article. Also watch out for copying material (plagiarism), as it violates copyright laws.
2. Conversation with Others
Socializing is not only healthy but also great for your blog.
When you interact with others, you can hear different perspectives on many different issues which you can use to blog about. Another great blogging idea is to interview someone about a particular subject that your blog covers. People love hearing what others really think.
3. People Watching
There are so many different and interesting cultures in this world.
When you people watch, you can learn about how people interact with each other which is both stimulating to the mind and great for the soul. Just remember that people enjoy their privacy so observe in a general way and don’t stare!
Once you start people watching, your blog content will be rich with personal and real life experiences!
4. Take a Break
Sometimes taking a break and doing something else work wonders for writing articles. Don’t always sit in front of your desk and stare at the monitor.
Take a walk around town or go grab a bite. It’s important to take your mind off your blog once in a while to recharge your mind full of content ideas!
