20+ ideas for your next blog posts

All bloggers have to deal with lack of inspiration once in a while. Actually, if you are reading this post, you are probably going through a bout of writer’s block right now.

People often ask me how I manage to come up with so many articles every month. The answer is simple: After nine years as a blogger, experience has taught me to see ideas everywhere. And, to be honest, my goal is not to re-invent the wheel but rather to write posts that are valuable and relevant to you.

Today, I would like to share a list of ideas, I hope, will help fuel your creativity for your upcoming posts.

  • Conversations with members of your audience and professionals in your niche
  • Trending topics in your field
  • Case studies
  • Reviews of products (books, tools, software…)
  • Responses to articles posted on other blogs
  • Weekly curation of the best content found on a specific topic
