How To Get Unique Content Ideas For Your Blog Posts

Truth is, getting content ideas can be tough. You easily get distracted and everything seems to have already been written! To make matters worse, requirements to content concepts and titles have become much more complicated. With the growing significance of referral traffic, we now have to brainstorm title strategies and how they appear on social sites.
So, if you're feeling short of content ideas, here are a few tips that can help you:
1. Check your Comments Section: When you let readers share and comment on your site or blog, you could end up with some great blog post ideas. Your readers might ask for more information about a specific item you didn’t cover clearly in your first post, or they might share their own opinions about the topic, which could make your fingers itch to write. Reading those bits carefully could make your writing much easier.

2. Check out the Competition: According to 2014 stats, more than half of all small businesses don’t have a website. As a result, your top competitor may not have a blog that you can follow. But that same competitor might be active on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. The posts you find there could give you great ideas about topics you should cover.

3. “Peeking”: Here you check other blogs and get post ideas from what they have already written.  If you grab an idea from someone else, be sure to tweak it or rewrite it or any how to make it your own. But borrowing a good idea could help you come up with the story idea that’s been eluding you.  4. Surfing: Read through your reviews and look for items that get lot of mentions. Not all comments will contain blog gems, of course. Some might just contain complaints or random bits of praise you can’t build on. But, watching the comments closely could give you some great ideas for writing that will really resonate.

5. Do Keyword Research: And of course, nothing beats good old fashioned keyword research. This is a fundamental part of the writing process, as it helps you find the right terms which will perform better on SERPs. But more than SEO, your searches can also help you to find out what people are looking for, and that could give you some excellent blog post ideas.


With Google AdWords‘ Keyword Planner or Google trends, you can run a simple search on a topic you’re planning to cover. Your results page will give you keywords that are similar to the topic you’ve hit, but they come with just a few changes.

Keys To Effective Creative Writing:

Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary prose or with various traditions of poetry. It is a writing that expresses ideas and thoughts in an imaginative way. The writer gets to express feelings and emotions instead of just presenting the facts. Creative writing is often a fun exercise that can stimulate the mind of the writer as well as present an opportunity to express one's ideas on paper.

So, here are ways you can make the most out of creative writing so that you can benefit from it as well as anyone else who may be reading it:

1. Think About What You Want To Write About And How You Wish To Convey It: While it is easy to write about anything, it is preferable that you have an idea of what you want to write about and think about how you plan to express your feelings. Ask yourself what you wish to convey and spend some time to think about how to convey it. For example, if you want to convey your feelings about public speaking and what it means to you, you can take time some to reflect on the various experiences you had with public speaking, the feelings you had inside whenever you had to give a speech, and what you did to prepare for the speech. This will help you create a small road-map which will guide you as to what to write about. While creative writing is not as detailed or as organized as essay writing, it is still important to have a small road-map in your mind so you can make the most of your writing.

2. Write About The Things You Are Passionate About: Passion is a big part of creative writing. You can write about a lot of things, but it's the things you are passionate about that will bring out your best writing. When you choose a topic you are more passionate about, the road-map you already thought of will be easier to generate in your head. You begin to enjoy the process much more. For example, if you are really passionate about public speaking, you will be able to reflect on the many experiences that you can use as inspiration for your writing. It will be much easier to think about the feelings you had during your speeches and easier to write about how you overcame them. The passion will be reflected in your writing as your readers will be able to see how much you enjoyed speaking and understand that you have a lot to say about how to do well in public speaking.

I guess with the above you will not always run into lack of post ideas!
