Tips & Tricks Thursday — Tips & Tricks Bloggers Use To Make Their Job Easier

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Hello my Lovlies!!!!! A lot of people ask me how I come up with ideas for my blog content on a daily basis.  

Well I must admit content creation is really difficult: whether it's writing website copy, crafting social content, or writing whitepaper and ebooks.  The area of content a lot of writers have difficultly with is blogging. 

With the above in mind, I am going to share some tips & tricks on how bloggers come up post ideas.  I found these on 
Hub Spot.  

Coming Up With Post Ideas
1) Use Google autocomplete.
Not sure what to blog about? Type one of your search terms into Google and see what starts to fill in. Often, it's a good long-tail variation of a head term.
2) Mess around on the internet.
If you can't think of what to write, spending some time on social media or non-industry-related sites can help break you out of your rut. It's kind of like how you think of your best ideas in the shower.
3) Go take a shower.     

Your best content ideas usually don't happen when you're in a content brainstorm. They happen when you're doing anything other than your job.
4) Evernote it.
Keep a running list of awesome campaigns, interesting ideas, and fascinating data that may come to you while you are on a run, at the grocery store, or even just waking up in the morning.
5) Trello-dump it.      

Trello's perfect for brain-dumping topic ideas and organizing them however best suits you. You can also have multiple people on the same board or even the same idea "card."
6) Keep a running list of questions.
Whether they come from customers, prospects, colleagues, friends, or your own brain, if one person has asked the question, you can be sure others have thought it. Refer to this list of questions when you're looking for new blog post ideas.
7) Newsjack from RSS feeds.     

Create a group of RSS feeds in an RSS reader like Feedly -- just for identifying news to jack. Fill it with news publications and other sites that publish news about your blog niche. Check it once or twice a day for newsjacking opportunities.
Well my Lovlies, I hope you incorporate some of my blogging tips and tricks into coming up with your blog content in the future.
