Your keyword research will give you much direction on what to blog about. You’ll have to unlock content around specific words. A word is not yet a topic though. Next to a keyword, you’ll need an angle, a specific story around a keyword, to write a blogpost. And as your blog grows, your inspiration can get weary. The following 6 tips for blog ideas will help you to find inspiration to come up with a story around the keywords.
Tip 1: Reading other blogs
A great way to come up with ideas for blogpost is to read other posts. Reading the material other people created will most definitely provide inspiration for your own blogposts. Pitfall of reading other people’s work, is that it’s hard to shed your own light on the same topic. It’s hard coming up with your own view after you’ve read someone else’s.
Reading the titles of blogposts can also give you blog ideas for topics. You don’t have to be scared to rephrase someone else’s opinion (instead of creating your own thought) if you only read the titles. Browsing your way through some blogs should give you enough inspiration to come up with new posts for your own blog.
Tip 2: Current events
Another way to come up with ideas for blogpost is by referring and writing about current events. Stay tuned on different news sites and write posts in which you incorporate your view on the news in your niche. Perhaps you can install an alert on specific topics. On your blog, you should translate these new messages fitting the exact mission of your blog.
