In order to make your blog a successful money making entity, you’ll need to get traffic to it and keep them coming back. The best way you can do this is by making it interesting to your blog readers and provide them with the best content.
Running out of original content to post can happen to anyone, even to the most successful bloggers. Some resort to scraping the bottom of the barrel to find things to discuss, but that ultimately loses them readers, which means less money streaming in.
What you need to figure out is where to find great ideas to post about. If you’re stuck, there are many things to get you out. These techniques are simple yet effective when used right. Here are some things to try the next time you get stuck for something to write about:
Scour the news sites. Maybe you can find a top story to blog about if you searched the news sites like MSNBC or FOXNEWS. Add your own accounting to the story instead of just linking it.
You can post about your personal feelings toward the story or ask your readers what their thoughts are on it. However, you need to be sure that the story is related to the topic of your blog.
To see what your fellow bloggers are blogging about, try checking out their sites. It may seem unethical, but as long as you’re not stealing content, it’s perfectly acceptable to see what the community is interested in.
Are you interested in any posts? Do you think you can add something to that particular post? A new spin you can put on it? Media outlets always have an eye on the competition to see what others are doing. and you should, too!
Do some Internet research. Do a search on the Internet for your blog’s topic. You can come up with information concerning your niche. You may become inspired by something you’ve read there or you may think of some comments to post about it.
Time line, information lists, and mapping details are some ways to search with Google’s experimental search option. You’ll get more ideas from this than the traditional search route: http://www.google.com/experimental/index.html.
Try checking the video sites. You can add one of the many videos YouTube has to offer. Try to find something that relates to your blog’s topic. Have your readers share their thoughts on it once you’ve posted the video to your blog.
Consider doing reviews. Reviews can be a good filler to use while you try to get inspired again. If you find websites, articles, or books that’s related to your topic, then try posting a review of it. If it’s a good review, add your affiliate link and make some money from your opinions!
Daily activities. You might be able to work your blog if you think about what happened within your day. For instance, if your blog is about flowers and you saw some flowers during your walk, then you can use that as your post.
Let your readers know what kinds of flowers are seen in your neighborhood and if possible, take come pictures to add since visual stimulation enhances the reader’s experience.
By looking to other sources, you can easily get back your inspiration for your blog posting. They can give you a nice filler until your personal inspiration comes back or help you come up with ideas you can share with your readers. Don’t lose readers just because you’ve lost your blogging muse!
