Here are 5 tips on how to create ideas for your blog posts.

  1. Write Sequels to Your Hot Blog Posts.

If you have some blog posts that are getting a lot of visitors or lots of comments then these are what I would call hot blog posts. If you have posts with many comments you should have been acknowledging those comments by commenting yourself with more information on the subject and answers to any questions asked. Why not gather up all this information and write a sequel to this post? It may appear that you are repeating yourself but your new post may bring in fresh visitors who would have not read your original post.

If you have posts with lots of visitors then these are also hot posts. You should consider expanding on the original post with another blog entry with more information on this hot topic.

  1. Questions in Comments.

Read through all your blog comments again and see if there are any questions or comments that you could use to write a post to expand on these comments or answer any questions raised in a more comprehensive way. The fact that people have raised these issues in comments to your blog indicate that you visitors would like to know more about them. Have you read any information lately about new ideas on these topics? If so, write a blog post about them.

  1. Freebies.

People love freebies especially something unique or original. So gather all your posts on a hot topic and use them to write a simple report. Next write a post giving this report away for free to anyone who reads your blog post. Monitor the traffic to this post and if it proves to be a success then repeat the idea every few months. Do not forget to add links to your website and products in the report to generate more traffic to your site.

  1. Expand on an Existing Post.

Have you written something that you are passionate about and have more information or updates on the topic? If so, use these to write a post. No matter how little information you may have to start, if you are passionate about something it is quite likely that once you start you will find that before long you will have a decent blog post.

  1. Ask Your Visitors for Suggestions.

Remember it is your visitors who read you posts so why not ask them for suggestions or questions which you can use to write blog posts. You can also send an email to your mailing list asking them about what they would like you to post to your blog. Also consider getting your readers to fill in a simple survey and to add their comments and questions. You can use this information to form the basis of future posts.
