How to find subjects to write about and keep your blog updated?

1. Blog about something you like

This is the most important thing that help me to come up with new info every week. It really doesn’t matter if a bunch of blogs already exists because if you will blog about something you like and have it as a hobby you will always have something  to talk about. Eventually you will succeed to help others and make your blog known. It will also be easy to come up with new ideas for article every day because yourself will be looking for new informations about your passion.

2. Bookmark and visit the top sites from your niche

Maybe this sounds quite strange because maybe all of you are already doing this :). In my 1 year period of blogging I was able to bookmark more then 60 sites. Once I had discovered a new site that I think it is worthing visiting again and it is has useful informations I will bookmark it in my browser and visit with regularity.

3. Find ideas from the comment you receive

I don’t really receive a lot of comment but the ones I receive are good quality. I think I was able to write more then 10 articles from 100 only by inspiring from the comments I receive. Just the other day I have written a article about Free Tips Of Advertising Available for a Blogger with the help of a visitor that asked me this thing.

4. Subscribe to the blogs you consider worthy

By subscribing to their email list and feeds you will be able to find out more faster the latest news and also be able to write a article faster. Of course that you can’t subscribe to the whole list of bookmark sites but at least to the top 10 of them.

5. Google Alerts

I know of the existence of Google Alerts from some time, but unfortunately I didn’t had the chance to use it. I am recommending it, because it can do some grate stuffs and I am planing to use it from net month.

Conclusion

    Hey Dragos – Google Alerts are great for all things SEO like link building, reputation management, and I’m sure they could be utilised to help with new topics for blogging… probably a good use would be to analyse the returned alerts for up and coming trends, in relation to the blogs target market, that could then be good to post about to gain new traffic!

    I visit many sites at regular interval and keep a watch on regular news updates on my niche. This gives me an idea and I d proper research on the subject before writing and publishing contents.

  8. Blogger can also find ideas from twitter trending topics. It’s good to be updated about what’s new and what’s everyone talking about. However, I agree with you that the best topic should be something that you like. You cannot produce the best article if in the first place you don’t feel like writing it.
