10 Easy Ways to Discover Great Blog Topics

Stumped on what to write about? It\’s easy to get stuck in a writing block when it comes to your blog. And not knowing what to write about only makes the process of generating great posts even more difficult. Finding ways to come up with engaging topics can help you write faster while still creating the quality content your readers expect.

Here are ten easy tricks for discovering great blog topics:

  1. Brainstorm using pen and paper. Free writing can be very helpful in breaking the creative block. Simply write whatever words or phrases come to mind until you find one that sticks.
  2. Use a blog topic generator like this one from Portent. Enter a few keywords and many different ideas are generated immediately.
  3. Take a peek at your past posts. Is there a fresh perspective you can give on a topic you already wrote about?
  4. Read current industry news. Discover out what people are talking about and write about that.
  5. Browse Pinterest to find out what\’s hot. Find the most pinned posts in your niche and expand upon them.
  6. Find a strategy for saving good ideas when they pop into your head. Write them in a notebook or save them on your phone for future use.
  7. Ask your readers what you should write about. Discovering more about what they would like to learn can be a great way to engage your audience.
  8. Look at the calendar. Holidays and seasonal changes make for great content prompts. Use them to create more timely pieces.
  9. Revisit your most popular posts. These pieces represent the topics your readers found most interesting. Change the scope of them to make the content fresh and new.
  10. Keyword search the most sought-after topics in your industry. Take those keywords and write engaging posts highlighting them.
