A blog that has high quality contents can attract lots of readers to it and in turn this will help to make the blog successful.

We all know the term “content is king” when it comes to blogging is a must for blogging success. Whenever a person comes on the internet to read or to do research on a particular topic, then this person wants to gain knowledge to it’s highest degree.

In today’s world people want to be successful in whatever career they decide to choose. Similarly in the blogosphere lots of bloggers want to be successful with blogging, but only a few are able to become successful bloggers making money from their blog.

For one to become a successful blogger today then they have to be able to come up with new contents on a regular so that they can supply for their blog readers and contents which also satisfy their needs.

Here are some tips on how you can come up with new contents for your blog when you are out of ideas.


Do Follow Up Posts

A great way to find new contents for your blog is by writing a follow up post to the previous one that you did.

I remember a few weeks back I did an article on how to get targeted traffic to your blog.

After that I wrote a follow up article on how to prepare your blog for targeted traffic.

Followed by those two articles I next wrote how to successfully make money from your blog with the targeted traffic that I mentioned in the previous posts.

With the first article that I had written I got to write on two more articles because I did follow up posts. I did not just write one article and leave it there, I made sure that I utilized my writing knowledge so that I could come up with new blog posts for my blog.

So doing follow up posts can help you to come up with new contents. This can also help to bring back previous readers to your blog as well and in turn increasing your blog traffic.

Write On Trending Topics

Another way to come up with new contents for your blog is to write on topics that have been generating a buzz on the internet. This is a great way to voice your own opinion on the topic that is trending.

Would your blog readers be interested though in this type of post?

Yes they can. But of course this highly depends on you the writer. You have to in a way which entertains your blog readers, educates them and also write in a so that they understand.

When Matt Cutts wrote on his blog that guest blogging is dead, this topic generated lots of buzz among bloggers.

It became a trending topic and this gave many bloggers to voice their own opinion.

So look for trending topics that you can also create contents for your blog. It’s a great way to voice your own opinion and also build traffic for your blog.

Do Interview Posts

Doing interviews for your blog can help to boost the traffic of your blog, plus this is a great way of coming up with new contents for your blog by interviewing other bloggers.

Why do this help to increase blog traffic?

This is because people want to know what bloggers are doing on their blog to make it successful.

Not only that, but it will help to gain added knowledge about the blogger and how he/she became a blogger. Readers love interview and I have seen lots of interviews getting tons of exposures for the blogs that do it.

Try it out and see how well it works for you.

Brainstorm For New Ideas

A popular way in which bloggers come up with new articles for their blog is by brainstorming. Everybody knows that doing this will help to come up with tons of new contents for your blog.

Brainstorming is done by thinking of new stuff to write for your blog.

A great way to do this is by getting a pen and a note pad. Write down every single topic that comes to your head. Use the internet to help you while brainstorming. Use social media sites, blogs and forums in your niche and also social networking sites.

When you do that then you can come up with tons of new articles to write for your blog.

Conduct A Blog Poll/Survey

Most time it is best to write articles which your blog readers actually want to read or contents which satisfy their needs.

How can you do this? Conducting a blog poll or survey is an absolute great way to get the job done. Doing this will help you to know what type of articles interests your blog readers and also help you to know what they are thinking.

Once you do this and you get the results of your poll or survey, then you need to act on it quickly. Start writing articles based on your results. Your blog readers will love yo for doing this and will definitely read your article when you publish it.

Don’t Write It… Vlog It

Instead of writing your blog post, why not vlog it.

Vlog is the term used when people do blogging but in the format of a video. This is a great way to capture your audience and deliver your message across to them.

Not all the time people like to read, they like to watch and listen as well. Doing videos for your blog post, whether it is doing your blog post in a video format or doing a tutorial, once you deliver it in a great way then your audience will love it.

If you haven’t tried video blogging as yet then you should get on board. You can even make money doing it by uploading your videos to YouTube and monetize your videos with the YouTube partnership program.

    The main aim of writing unique contents is to get the attention of customers and search engines to boost income. Brainstorming with enough knowledge open new doors of success in blogging. For quality writing a lot of brain storming is required.
    In getting my job of Teach English Abroad main brainstorming played a vital role. I applied it when I was a student and now I am applying it my profession and that same is with blogging

    Following up from a previous post is a good idea.

    I’ve found that if your antennae are up for good subject material in the genre you’ve selected, an idea pops up sooner or later. I write articles on science, health and human behavior. Ideas may come while I’m watching a science program, or news of cutting edge medical research.

  15. Gautham Nekkanti



    Interviews are a great way for generating huge traffic and exposure to our blogs. However, we need to choose interesting and popular figures in the blogosphere.

  16. Samir

  17. Ravi Chahar


    Every blogger need to figure out about many new topics to boost up his/her blog. The basic intention of bloggers is to attract traffic as much as they can. It is necessary to write a content which can create an unique reputation for your blog. It would be great to write different post from other bloggers. Bloggers shouldn’t get afraid to do experiments. There is a greater possibility that readers like to approach unique blogs. You have such an effective way of explanation. Thanks for sharing.

    Great article! I am reading this for the 2x time.You stated “Brainstorming” is a poplar way to come up with new and great ideas for your blog.I have to say that is true for some people but for me, it doesn’t work. I tried numerous times and it doesn’t work.I have to revisit my niche. I have to really look at what I want to do and have fun at the same time.

      What you can do is jot down topics that you come up with and see which seems best to write on. After you choose that topic then you list the main points for the article like sub-headings.

      Then start writing.

      That’s what I normally do. Others might do it different. So just find a method which works for you and try it out.

      Thanks for the comment and all the best to you.

    Vlogging is the future says some entrepreneurs, pretty cool.
    Researching, lurking forums also gives you brand new ideas.

      Hey Daniel, yes video blogging is getting quite some views and been generating a buzz. This is a great way to market your blog or product.

      Thanks for the comment pal.

    Content really is very important. Marketing yourself well is also very important, but nothing will turn people off faster when something is over-hyped, and the end result is underwhelming. That will give you a very bad image to recover from. Made sure that your content is worthwhile.

    Hello, kharim. So nice post. The best part of this post is brain storm. This could be so helpfull for me. Many times i get new idea to write a post. Sometimes i write about them but many time i forgot about those ideas. I think a paper and a pen will help me better to think for new content.

      Thanks for commenting.

    Hi Kharim,

    Great tips to come up with a new content idea. I just want to add one thing.
    We can also get a content idea by reading others blog comment. It gives an idea about which problems their readers are facing and you can divert those readers to your blog. It is a great trick and love it to experiment on other blogs..
    Thank you for this post… 🙂

    Hello Kharim,

    Follow up posts are a great way to come up with fresh content for your blog especially if the post did exceptionally well. The Vlogging concept is also a great idea that I am pretty sure will receive positive response especially amongst writers when a block strikes.

    Your entries are so on point and inspiring… I wish you write more often.

    Hi Kharim!
    We will read your whole post and found it useful. You’re really mention some useful points but i think if we have any idea to create something new and fresh then it’s also help us to write daily one post one after another. Getting an idea from previous post is also good, keep it up this good work.

    Rightly said, content is the king and a website cannot hold on it’s visitors without good content. It’s always better to go for evergreen content instead of event based content. and lastly I donot think interview post is useful for most of the blog niches (except webmaster/Seo )

  31. Reply

    Great tips. I think posting interview articles is great idea but this is really hard to get interview for newbies. Because a successful blogger won’t waste his time for such a cheap blog. May be I am wrong but this is my opinion.

    Hey Kharim,
