In order to write a blog post I am sure that you have to think and do some hunting. All of us as bloggers has to go through this process at one point or another to get blog post ideas.

Even if you aren’t a blogger and you write articles for a newspaper or for some other reason, you have to brainstorm and come up with ideas for what you want to write. Sometimes getting ideas can be really a difficult task at times. You have to make sure that your ideas will satisfy your reader or solve your reader’s problem.

I have some 10 cool ways to come up with blog post ideas to keep your mind working so that you will have tons of blog post ideas.

From Other Blogs

Visiting other blogs to get new blog post ideas has personally worked for me. I visit other blogs to read articles. After doing that, I normally find myself coming up with blog post ideas.

Blog Commenting

Making comments on other blog has also helped me to come up with great blog post ideas. Blog commenting also helps you to get traffic from the blog that you have commented on.

Forums In Your Niche

I often visit forums in my niche. Browse through the forum threads and make a couple replies on some topics. Forums are normally full of threads and you can get hundreds of blog post ideas to keep you blogging.

Asking Your Blog Readers

If you don’t have anything to blog about, why not ask your readers what they need help with or what they would like you to blog about. This can help you to get great blog post ideas and this will both benefit you and the reader who asked the question.

The reader will be really grateful for you helping them to understand a particular problem that they were having.

Having help them successfully, you can have that article re-tweeted by your readers and this in-turn will bring in more visitors to your blog.

Do Follow Up Posts

I am pretty sure that most blog post that you write is not fully covered. So you can scan through your blog posts and do follow up posts. Make sure that you like back to the previous post that you are doing the follow up on so that your readers can read that previous post and fully benefit from what you are trying to say to them.

Conduct Interviews

This is another way to write blog posts, by interviewing other bloggers or someone of interest. Other people like to listen or read interviews, so you can try it.

Do Tutorial Posts

Tutorial posts is one of the best post that can be placed on any blog. People are always looking for help and things on “how to” stuff. Making tutorial videos can really help your readers will and they will be coming back to your blog for more if you do more tutorial videos.

Watch TV/Videos

Watching TV o videos can help you to come up with blog post ideas.

I was watching the television some time ago and came up with a blog post idea entitled, The Love Of Money, which I offered up as a guest post.

Share What You Know

If you know something that other bloggers don’t know, why not share it. This is what you call unique content because nobody has already written what you are thinking. This will also make your readers like your blog.

Check Twitter For Interesting Stuff

The people that you follow on Twitter is always tweeting interesting stuff, surprisingly, you can get tons of blog post ideas from twitter.

      Great list! I find my ideas get sparked from other blogs as I am commenting on various subjects. Whenever something hits me I put it into my spreadsheet even if it seems like a borderline topic. I also find when I go back and review my sheet, I sometimes get some spin off ideas from what is on there as well!

      Some great tips there, I will put most of them to good use.

      The only problems I find in tweeting my posts is Twitter closes my account for spamming, now I don’t tweet a link to my posts. So how can I promote them?

      I must say that you have given such very good tips. But I think if you already own a blog the easiest way to do it is ask your readers. But with me what I do is blog comment, visit other blogs which is Yes it is very helpful to come up with new ideas.

        Sometimes a blog visitor will also email you and depending on the question they ask you then you can turn that into an article.

        You are so right. Sometimes we as bloggers have burn out and we need to rest at times so that we can recharge our brains to come up with new ideas.

      When I’m facing writer’s block, I either: run or read. Running never fails to clear my head and inspire me. As far as reading, I’m always seeing a style I want to mimic or finding an idea I want to expound on.

      Personally, I’ve found one of the best ways to get blog post ideas is to use the Google Wonder Wheel. Simply enter in the main subject of your site and you’ll see lots of related keywords about which you can write more blog posts.

      When ever I see myself stuck in a situation when I can’t think of any post ideas (Writers block situation), I usually go through my old posts and comments made my readers on my earlier posts and that helps me the most…
      apart from feeds, forum reading and reading other blogs in the same niche is another thing which works for me..

      All of these are good sources for tweets and blog posts. When I write on my blogspot blog, I get ideas from other blogs, often in the comments when some has a problem but the owner isn’t responding (a big no-no in my book!). So I’ve written posts with more explanation and recounting differences in blogger templates. As always the devil is in the details!

      Lately, my source has been the clients for my freelancing work. When someone is new to WP you can point them to codex documentation but I find clients need something more ‘customized’. So I’m doing lots of screen casts lately.

      You can also get lots of ideas just doing google searches for your problems — someone has (several someones have) already written about pieces of the puzzle; there’s your opening!

      I personally feel asking your readers is the best option. After all they are the one who will be reading your blog. So why not ask them what they would like posted.

      Hey, I get a lot of article ideas off the radio. I’m always listening to local talk radio when I’m driving, and often they will cover a niche story in only a few words. I’ll dig up some more info online when I get home and write an article. Done this quite often actually… I also like your mention of follow up posts, this is a bright idea and one that is easy to do. You can never write everything there is to write on a topic.

        Oh yes, how could I forget about the radio. This is also a great way to get some great ideas πŸ™‚ thanks for backing me up on this Daniel πŸ˜€

      One really quick way is to just take whatever you may have learned or heard at work today and spin it into a post!

      Most of us that work will at least hear one good story or pick up on something interesting each day. Even though you may not feel that it’s super exciting – your blog readers possibly will!

      Plus, you can always bridge your own experience with it in the post which gives it a great voice of your own.

      • Reply

        Yep that’s true Murlu. Sharing what you know is one of the best ways to write blog post. The post will be well constructed and full of information if you write about what you have learn and know what works πŸ™‚

      Lately I have been seeing a lot of bloggers, adding interviews and the idea actually seems quite interesting. As a reader, I have to say that I really enjoy reading such articles. On the other hand, even the interviews themselves can help you get some ideas.

      Excellent ideas.. And I get people asking if I’ll either Tweet or post about something, so I just tell them to send me a copy/paste email and I’ll post it for free.. Well, actually what I say is it’s free but I ask that they Tweet or Facebook the post. They are happy to do it cause it helps them too. So, I guess I’m kind of getting guest posting, but not!

      For some reason the KeywordLuv is picking up that me last post was about the Superbowl, but actually it’s about a benefit concert that someone sent me and asked me to post.
