Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today’s post, is going to be me addressing the hardest thing for bloggers: coming up with new content. Every blogger will have times where they cannot think of posts or new content. I struggle with this a lot. So, I’ll be sharing a few tips on how I come up with new ideas!
Look Back At Your Blog Archives
Looking at your blog archives is a great way of seeing the kind of content you used to write for the blog, and you can maybe rewrite some posts – but in a better way now that your blog has evolved! Obviously, if you’ve had a whole niche rebrand then you may not be able to do this completely, but you can still look at old posts and see if you can get ideas from them or redo them!
Think About What Holidays or Events Are Coming Up
Holidays and events are universal, and they really help boost your content ideas because you can get inspiration from the event or what other people do for the event. For example, my recent post about Self Love was written in February because that was the month of Valentine’s Day.
Have A Series To Get Readers Involved
There are sort of two parts to this. A series is very useful as it’s continuous so it will always allow you to keep similar posts publishing on a regular basis. And the next part is to keep readers involved, this way they can always be feeding back to you on content they’d like to see and how to improve your blog!
Draw Inspiration From the WordPress Reader
I always talk about the WordPress Reader as it’s the best way to get inspiration. There’s nothing wrong at getting ideas from someone else (but please make sure you give credit!) For example, I actually got the idea for the first tip in this post from Natalie Belle’s Blog, so go check out her wonderful posts! I tend to look through my ‘following’ and also the ‘discover’ page on the reader because I see content from people I know and also content I hadn’t thought of before!
Look At Trends From Other Social Media Platforms
Social Media platforms such as Instagram and Youtube also have bloggers and other creators. And trends on those platforms tend to grow much more then blog trends. So if you see a trend on Youtube, why not make it into a blog post? You can get people involved and it would be super fun for you!
