Your blog is important! When life gets busy or you run out of ideas, don’t let your blog suffer. If you realize the importance of blogging, you need to keep up with it! Check out our list of 5 tips to never run out of blog post ideas below.
1. Plan Topics Ahead of Time
Plan a list of ideas for the future. Write down a list of content ideas to use when you can’t think of a topic. You’re allowed to have a brain freeze, so keep a list of topics and never stop adding to it. You can also browse other blogs for topics you want to look into further for yourself.
2. Do an Interview or Review
Do an interview or review on topics related to your blog. A 5 or 10-Question interview with a business or person will allow you to reinforce the topics you write about and meet new contacts. A review of businesses or services related to your blog topic can be very helpful to readers. Both interviews and reviews allow you to add different writing structures to your blog to keep it interesting.
3. Reuse A Blog Topic
If you already wrote a great post, re-use it and write a “part 2” blog post. This is a great post to do if there is breaking news or new research about a topic you wrote about in the past. Don’t forget to use a rel-canonical tag on the new post so so that the search engines know which one to rank. Tip: Any post that is long can be divided into a part 1 and part 2 blog post.
4. Answer Questions
Ask and answer questions in a blog post. Look at past posts for comments and questions. Anything that started a conversation or was left unanswered is a great idea for a new blog post. The title of the blog post can be the question and the body can answer it.
5. Guest Bloggers
Invite a guest blogger to share a post on your blog. This is a great way to include new ideas, new writing styles and gain readership from the guest bloggers followers. You can find guest bloggers by searching blogs you follow and reaching out to the authors. You should also be guest blogging yourself to promote your blog and business.
