Blogging Relevant Content 195x300 How to Come up with Relevant Content for Your BlogIf you have been blogging for quite some time now, you will surely agree as to how it can be really difficult to consistently come up with relevant and fresh content for your blog.  Search engines would love to rank up your site knowing that it offers unique and relevant content.  However, the big question is, how do you come up with new ideas and topics?
-

Here are some tips for coming up with relevant content for your blog:
-

1. Maintain a list of possible titles that you can use in the future. When ideas come rushing in, it may be hard to contain them all in your head, so it would be better to keep a list of all the probable topics and titles that you can use.
-
2. Take time to read other blogs and forums. There is so much information and topics that you can find on the internet, and you can actually use that to your own advantage. You may either find something that you agree or disagree on, or write about a hot topic that everyone’s been talking about. But of course you still need to make sure that these topics are related to your niche or business.
-

3. Ask a question. A very good way to catch your readers’ interest would be to write about something that demands an answer or a reaction. By doing this, you are not only engaging them to participate, but at the same time you are able to create a good online relationship with people of the same interest.
-

4. Make a video. This can be a video of yourself as you work on a certain project or task. Readers and visitors will absolutely love to see something new and unique in your site every once in a while. You can also try recording some conversations using podcast or videocast, to add more life and personal touch to your blog content.

    your website. It looks like some of the text in
    your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let
    me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Cheers

  7. Haarausfall says:

    You need to take part in a contest for one of the greateest
    websites on the net. I’m going to recommend this website!

  8. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  9. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He always kept talking about this. I will send this
    post to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a very good read.
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. Hurrah, that’s what I was looking for, what a material!
    present here at this weblog, thanks admin of this website.

  11. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my
    site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  12. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find
    It really useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back
    and help others like you aided me.

  13. Hi there mates, its wonderful article regarding tutoringand entirely explained,
    keep it up all the time.

  14. Set your story type preferences. Perhaps you want to see more events and fewer photos. The news feed preferences works like a stereo equalizer. Move each slider up for more about the subject and down for less about the subject. All the features that are shared can be adjusted with these settings. Thanks a lot.

    I think it’s really easy if you are really passionate about the scene you are writing about. You have to think about the head of your audience and serve their interests, but you have to stay entertaining to avoid to get bored. I blog about my 3D printing enthusiasm so it isn’t hard to find a new topic or project I want to write about.

  16. Lynn Brown says:

    Appreciate that, it is always good to know that sharing information helps out others. Thank you for stopping by today.

  18. thanks so much for this article is very interesting and very good. really i like it so much and i learn from it much and much ideas that can help me to get a good development in my life.

  19. Lynn Brown says:

    Appreciate the positive feedback and glad the information is easy to understand. Thanks for visiting.

  20. Your articles are always interesting and understandable. Thank you!

  21. Lynn Brown says:

    It is a favorite of mine too Jan. Glad that you mention the trendwatching because that is a very good tip as well. It provides for current, relevant keywords that are important to get those posts ranked. Really appreciate you stopping by and offering your good insight on this topic.

    You have an amazing day!

  22. JanBierens says:

    This must be one of my favorite subjects, running out of subjects… To blog about. There are so many ways and each of us has to do what works best for them.
    Trendwatching is one of the things that work for me. Just a glance on the ‘what is trending’ in twitter and / or Google+ works for me and definatly reading other people’s blogs. Not to steal content, but just for inspiration…

  23. Lynn Brown says:

    Glad you found the tips helpful Vali. Relevant content is around us every where. Look at all the trending news feeds and pick up ideas for there. I also will outsource sometimes only because it gives me time to work more on my business projects.

    Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your thoughts. Hope you will visit again soon.

  24. Vali says:

    Thanks for sharing your helpful advices, honestly, I often feel get in stuck when I need to publish something fresh and relevant which could generate some extra traffic to my blog. I usually hire freelancers or buy articles when I cannot find any inspiration, but fortunately there are some really cool platforms for that.

  25. Mika Castro says:

    Yes Lynn, I change my profile pic in gravatar.

  26. Lynn Brown says:

    Oh that is a really good point Richard. Expanding your niche is a good thing to consider when the blog topic might just be too narrow. I love that!

    Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your awesome advice, adding another thing to consider when you get stuck with writing ideas. Look forward to you visiting again soon!

  27. Richard says:

    I’ve run up on blogger’s block in the past. Keeping a list of topics is a really good tip that helps me out a lot. Also, writing consistently helps me keep my ideas flowing.

    Finally, I would add that if you are still running out of ideas after following these tips, then you might want to think on whether your blog topic is too narrow. You may consider expanding your niche a bit to include other related topics.

  28. Lynn Brown says:

    Positive is a great word! Thanks Mika for sharing your comments. Hey, did you change your profile pic? Thanks for stopping by today and look forward to seeing you again soon.

  29. Mika Castro says:

    Thanks for the tips Lynn! I must consider this tip s a highly recommended one because it is full of positive things to consider.

  30. Lynn Brown says:

    Really good point Kostas. Pick the cream of the crop and get ideas and even keywords that work for your industry – thanks for sharing that Kostas and glad you stopped by today!

  31. Thanks for the suggestions, Lynn – I’ll look those two resources up!

    Best wishes

    TANJA

  32. Kostas says:

    Hi Lynn, not knowing what to write about is one of the most common problems of every blogger. Reading other blogs (preferably the top on your niche) is one of the best ways to get an idea but certainly all your 4 advices help, thanks for sharing…

  33. Lynn Brown says:

    Thanks Bonnie for your kind positive support. And I’m glad that you have a great way of keeping ideas stirring so you are ready for your next blog post. I like your point about getting ideas from the comments that people leave. That is a good way to gain current trends or what people need help with.

    Always appreciate you visiting and sharing your words of wisdom Bonnie. Hope to see you again real soon. And sorry your internet was down the other day. I hate when that happens! Have a great day.

  34. Lynn Brown says:

    Oh yes, that is my favorite tip Lisa. That is because (which I didn’t mention) I will run that title in my keyword tool to find related keywords, create a new title but still have the idea and the start writing!

    Appreciate you stopping by and sharing your comments today. I also enjoyed your post today about being organized and the misconceptions. Really good information.

  35. Lynn Brown says:

    Sounds like you have an awesome system going on there Donna! I have heard of evernote and I also use Google Alerts. You know another idea that you made me think of is RSS feeds. We can gain ideas from other posts or articles. Thanks so much for sharing your insight and how you have an awesome way to gain those ideas for blog posts.

    Really glad you stopped by Donna and look forward to seeing you again real soon. BTW, thanks so much for sharing this post on your Facebook page today :)

  36. Lynn Brown says:

    Oh that is so true Janette! and you do such a great job too. I hope others will start visiting your blog should they want information on a wide variety of subject matter for the books that you review. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

  37. Lynn Brown says:

    I know Roy you never have a loss for subject matter and in fact, you always have such interesting topics that you share. But getting those little intriguing thoughts jotted down is key. After all, not sure about you, but lately I have been having what some people call ‘senior moments’. I have to write it down, or I will certainly forget about it.

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts Roy.

  38. Bonnie says:

    Terrific tips Lynn. I was happy to see that I’m doing some ‘right’ things. I do have a list of potential topics for upcoming blogs and blog series. I often get my ideas from my thoughts on others blogs and readings as well as from people who comment on my blog. Comments are a great place to find out what people are interested in talking more about I find.

    I was happy to see your advice to Tanja on videos Lynn…perfect. Thanks for that too! :) You are always so great at adding more value.

  39. Lisa Kanarek says:

    These are great tips for staying on track and staying unstuck. Keeping a list of titles is a great idea.

  40. Hi Lynn, Great points here. We all get “stuck” sometimes when it comes to writing yet another blog. These tips surely help. The one I like the most is making a list. I find that spending so much time on the internet, reading and learning things is too much information to process. I use a tool called “evernote” and it is always on my desk top.
    I have a page that I named “Random Notes” If I am reading some great information from an article, blog, or anywhere I jot down the subject and maybe a few lines.
    I never run out of content.
    Also, there is Google Alerts that I use. All you need to do is put some topics in and Google will “alert” you on the newest information on that subject. I am into Social Media. So, every day I go to my Google Alert and find the newest information. I may want to blog about it or sometimes just go over to Google+ say a few personal lines and refer that article to my readers.
    It is a great way for getting content.
    Thanks Lynn I loved this subject.
    Donna

  41. The beauty of writing book reviews is that I will never run out of content. So many books…so little time.

  42. So, I bet you would not be surprised if I rarely am at a loss for subject matter. My issue is more related to the time to express my outline in sentences.
    Therein lies my corollary. Carry a notebook, smartphone, tablet- and record what intrigues when you are so tickled. You will be able to draw upon your passion for the item, when you want to write!

  43. Lynn Brown says:

    I hear ya on that one Lisa, time is a huge factor! But I like your idea about sending a voice mail to help remember things you think about while strolling around. I know when I take walks I come up with some good ideas, but then i forget them when I get home!! (senior moment, probably!)

    Really appreciate you sharing your ideas and good tips Lisa, it adds to my list. Oh, and as for videos, keep them to 1 or 2 minutes, and you will see you can actually produce a couple a week. Especially if you just talk about a tip you shared in a post or recent article.

    When you add any more videos to your channel, be sure to let me know, as I will be happy to visit, like and share! Have a great day.

  44. Lynn Brown says:

    I love the title of your ebook Tanja! And I agree with you, which is yet another idea to add here, taking a break does help us to rejuvenate our creative thinking.

    As for videos, when you first start out, just try Animoto or even ScreenCastOmatic where you can get your message out and get used to producing videos. Then take your smartphone or flip camera and video yourself for an intro, working into longer time in front of the camera. When you venture out with video, be sure to let me know. I will be happy to share within my community!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and adding to the discussion.

  45. Lisa says:

    I find the best way is to take a break and go for a walk. I always come up with new ideas – I just have to write them down if there’s more than one idea found on that walk. Sometimes I’ll leave myself a voice mail so I don’t forget. The best time is after reading a lot so you can soak up the info and let the ideas flow from there.
    I do need to work on videos more. I only have one up on my YouTube Channel. I need 48 hrs per day to do it all :)

  46. Some great tips here, Lynn!

    I included the first two back when I wrote my original ‘How to figure out what to write about’ post, which then became one of the chapters in my “Write the Damn Blog Post!” ebook.

    Since the original post went up, I’ve added social media posts as another place to go to check out what other people are writing about. I’ve also suggested that sometimes, for some people, taking a break and doing something else for a bit will help to restart their creative processes.

    I love the concept of making a video, although I have to admit, I have no IDEA where to start with this (and I’m also seriously camera-shy… so that might need to be something I work up to!)

    Best wishes
