It happens to us all at some point.
You sit down to write your content and whoosh, it’s like all the ideas were sucked from your head. There’s nothing there. You have no idea what to write about. Not to worry. There are foolproof ways to fill your head back up with great content ideas. Here are seven of them.
#1 Grab a magazine.
Any magazine you have in your home and look at the cover. Convert each of the teaser headlines into content ideas for your blog or website. You’ll likely have things like:
- The top ten ways to___
- Five secrets of__
- Easy ways to ____
And so on. It’s a great way to provide quick and easy content ideas.
#2 Visit your favorite blog and expand on their latest blog post.
Or better yet, comment on the latest blog post and then write or blog about your comment. You can use it to generate traffic to your site and provide new and valuable information to your audience.
#3 Watch the national news for ten minutes.
Chances are you’ll see something that relates to you. You can use this news story to generate ideas for your content. For example, a news story about the job market might lead you to write an organization article about how to organize your life to attract more success. The news, while sometimes depressing, can also inspire great, and timely, content ideas.
Use comments and feedback you’ve received from others to create content for your blog or website. For example, you might use a question comment from a reader to start a new blog post on the same topic. Your readers are actually great sources of inspiration. You can also use your response to the blogger to generate a new blog post or article.
#5 Celebrity Watch.
Celebrities provide an abundance of entertainment for society. We watch what they do, who they do it with, what they wear, what they eat and where they live. You can often find celebrity information that relates directly to your niche.
#6 Find a quote that you love and expand on it.
Share why you love it and what it means to you. Tie it to your business products, services or information and ask readers to provide their favorite quote on the subject.
#7 Review a book, product, or service.
If you’re stumped for content, reviews are always appreciated by readers. They provide valuable information and they give you an opportunity to earn an affiliate income.
Writer’s block or content idea block happens. Don’t let it derail you! Look around you for insight and inspiration. And to prevent it from happening, keep a notebook with you at all times to jot down ideas as they come to you!
