You’ve got five good ideas to write about — you’ve already done the keyword research and brainstormed some topic ideas. Now you need to find good topics to write about. Here are five good ideas to get you started.
Questions your readers are asking about on social media. There are many different social media channels, so check the channels where your target audience hangs out. Look for questions that your target audience is asking. You’re much more likely to get answers to these questions if you’re the first responder.
It’s a great idea to use social media to find out what your audience is asking about. For example, if they ask how you can help them with their skin, you can create a blog post that answers that question. There are two main reasons you should show how to do something rather than tell people what to do.
The first reason is that when you show someone how to do something, they feel more comfortable following the steps because they can see what they’re meant to be doing with their own eyes. Your blog should solve problems for your readers. Every time you write a blog post, you should be solving a problem for your readers. If you help them solve their problem, they’ll keep coming back for more and tell their friends about you.
Show How To Do Something.
Writing a how-to blog post isn’t just a great way to teach people; it’s a great way to build links. Lots of people are looking for how-to posts on the web. You can learn how to do this kind of page by reading my post on how to make a popular how-to blog post.
Giveaways are a great way to build links and get some traffic. If you’re going to do a giveaway, you need to make it something worth entering. I’ve seen many bloggers do giveaways for things that are a couple of dollars. If you’re going to do a giveaway, make sure it’s a big-ticket item, like a Kindle Fire, iPad, or some other high-value item.
Write an infographic
Infographics are also a powerful way to build links. They’re even more potent than blog posts because they’re more like original content.
A piece of content you created and put a lot of work into will naturally be more valuable than a piece you didn’t start. So people will be more likely to link to it.
Interview a guest blogger; interview someone. If you know someone who you admire should question, interview them.
If you’re feeling particularly creative, try to think of someone you’d like to interview – but don’t have time to do an interview – and create a fake interview.
Interviewing doesn’t necessarily have to be about famous people. You can interview a local business owner. You can question your mom. Provide something entertaining. Everyone loves a good laugh — and if you can provide one, you have the potential to get people to link to you.
Write About Funny Events
If you can write funny like Dave Pell, you’re in luck. If you’re not so funny (but you know how to write), you could try posting funny and valuable things together.
Write About Real Problems
Does your business or organization have a problem that needs fixing? You can write a post on this and help other people with the same problem. You might even be able to help them come up with a solution.
Or, if you have a problem that other people have the same problem, you can write a post on this and then help them find a solution to the problem. If you run a business, it’s good to listen to what people talk about on social media. You can find out what your customers are interested in and their problems.
You can also find out what kind of content they like to read, which will help you with your blog. One of the most important things you can do as a blogger is show people how to do something.
If you can show people how to do something, you will create value for them, and they will enjoy that. Your readers are more likely to identify with you and your writing if you cover topics relatable to them. Learn More
You should always be on the lookout for questions your audience asks you on social media. Think about your customers and what they might be wondering about your products or services.
Use these questions to come up with blog post topics. It’s not enough to tell people how to do something. It would help if you showed them how to do it as well as possible.
You want to make sure that your content is as easy to follow. Don’t just write about what’s cool, trending, or what everyone else is writing about.
Write about things that are currently relevant to your business and your audience. When you write about real problems and offer real solutions, your readers will be more engaged and likely to return for more. Learn More
Subject Ideas From Your Own Life
Write about your own life and experiences as they relate to your topic.
Example: I’m an online marketer who writes a blog on marketing and social media. I could write about how I got my first freelance marketing gig or got all my Twitter followers.
Write About Other People’s Lives
Write about other people’s experiences that relate to your topic. When it comes to blogging, one of the most important things you can do is make all of your content relevant to the audience you’re trying to reach. Because we’re talking about social media, your blog posts must be relevant to questions and issues people are discussing on social media.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of just talking about what you do, but you’ll get more engagement on your posts if you show people how to do something.
When writing about your product or service, write about the problems it will solve for your customers. Don’t just sell your product; tell them why they need it. That way, you’re not just selling to them; you’re helping them and solving a problem for them.
The first and most obvious thing to write about is “What If?” What if such-and-such was different? Take a concrete example and play with it a bit.
What If We All Had Three Jobs?
What if we all had to have three jobs? You’d have one full-time job and two part-time jobs. You’d have to be a teacher, an accountant, and a carpenter.
You’d have to be a doctor, an electrician, and a cook. You’re out at night on your second job as an accountant when you notice a crash in the road ahead of you.
What If You Write About “The Next Big Thing” in Our Industry?
Imagine the future. In 5 years, you’re a massively successful company, with offices worldwide and thousands of employees. What if people had tried to stop you back in the day? Would they have succeeded? Let’s find out!

Tell A Story
One of the most popular blog posts is the personal narrative: I did something, and this is what happened. As a side note, this post is a perfect example of a unique history.
Why You Should Write A Story
Telling a story is one of the most powerful ways to engage your audience. With storytelling, you can connect with readers on an emotional level. You can make them feel something you want regarding your content marketing strategy. Learn More
As I said before, don’t get too discouraged if you don’t have the motivation to start writing. You can come back to these ideas later. Maybe you won’t be in the mood to write about cooking for a few months. That’s okay — there are always be new topics to write about.
That’s not the hard part! The hard part is to keep writing, post after post, week after week, month after month, and year after year.
To inspire you, here’s what three of our writers had to say about the challenges they faced while they were starting and how they overcame them:
” My biggest challenge was getting started because I had to talk myself into writing.”
