How to Find Ideas to Write About for Your Blog

 Starting a blog is easy – keeping a blog interesting and fresh is a whole other matter. While many marketers have no trouble beginning a niche blog, the sheer number of abandoned blogs around the ‘net speaks to the fact that many marketers don’t know what to do to keep a blog going. According to blogging experts, the key to keeping a blog going is to post frequently. This means that you’re going to need a ever present stream of content coming into your blog.

You may be intimidated by the thought of having to come up with lots of topic ideas. Finding topics for your blog posts are easy if you use the following ideas.
1.       News in your niche
Your blog should be timely and there’s no better way to attract attention on your blog than to tap into some ongoing news. No matter what your niche is you can find news stories and breaking information that will help fuel timely blog posts. Sign up for Google Alerts (it’s free) and set up alerts on important words in your niche. This way you’ll be able to see the news in your niche and blog about current topics.
2.       Comments section
The comments section in your blog can be a great source of writing inspiration. Let’s say you have a post on your marketing blog about keyword research. Within the comments section, a few people start asking about how to use keywords in articles for article marketing. Voila! You have your next blog post. Look through your comments section to identify topics that you can write about or questions you can answer in the form of a blog post.
3.       Resource lists
Are there some websites or other resources that your niche needs to know about? Write a few resource list posts. Resource lists posts are very easy to write and they provide maximum value to your readers because they can get the information that they need easily. When you can’t think of anything else to write about you can pull together a helpful list for your readers.
4.       Other blogs in your niche
Keep your finger on the pulse of your niche. Watch other blogs in your niche and see what they are writing about. You can take a different angle on the same topic, or cover an area of the topic that the original author missed. If you disagree with the author, feel free to go ahead and express you opinion on your blog. Other bloggers can be a great source of information so be sure to get involved in the community.
5.       Quick tips
Start collecting a list of quick tips you’d like to share with your niche. These can be inspired by your personal experience with the niche, from other blog posts you’ve read or from other products in your niche. When you find yourself stuck for blog post ideas, you can write a quick tips post.
These tips just scratch the surface of where you can find ideas for blog posts to populate your blog. Start keeping a notepad file with blog post ideas and you’ll never be at a loss for material.

The REAL Secret to Building A High-Profit Internet Business

The best way to succeed is to surround yourself with people who are successful. One of my greatest mentors has been Jimmy D. Brown. Jimmy is one of the most influential Internet Marketers in the business.

His knowledge is based on real life testing and tracking. His resources are valuable for anyone who does business on the Internet.

This is one of Jimmy’s best secrets.

The REAL Secret to Building A High-Profit Internet Business

By Jimmy D. Brown

My wife laughs every time she sees me doing it.

At least once or twice every week, I’ll be at my desk (or
at the dining room table) with my Franklin Covey planner
open and a stack of laminated checklists in hand.

“What are you doing, honey?” she calls, already knowing
the answer.

“I’m planning”, I reply with a smile.

She laughs and I get back to work.

She laughs because she swears I spend half of my time
“planning”. But, if you ask me how I’m able to get as
much work done as I do in only 3 hours a day, I’ll point
to a black Franklin Covey planner with about a dozen
laminated checklists inside.

Building an Internet business is easy. Seriously. I’m
not saying that it’s not complicated, because it is. I’m
just saying that it’s easy to accomplish if you just have
a system in place.

There’s very little in this world that can’t be
accomplished with the right set of action steps in front
of you.

Today, I’m going to give you such a system for building
your Internet business. There are only 4 steps…

1. Decide What You Want To Do. Do you want to run an
eBay(R) business? Be an affiliate marketer? Buy and sell
reprint rights? Get involved in niche marketing? While
all of those things will likely find their way into your
plan in time, you gotta begin with one thing at a time.

My recommendation: Choose a “broad” topic you are
interested in and begin building a list of folks interested
in that topic.

2. Determine A Weekly Action Plan. After you decide what
you want to do, it’s time to determine how to get it done.
What I do is this: I create a weekly set of action steps.
That is,I have a set of things I do on Monday, on Tuesday
and so forth. Decide how many hours (as little as ONE) you
want to work each day and schedule yourself a reasonable
amount of things to get done in that time frame. Repeat
this process week after week.

My recommendation: Begin writing ezine articles to
promote your list … and affiliate programs. It’s the
easiest way to get free traffic and build your list at the
same time.

3. Devote Yourself To Staying On Schedule. The important
thing here is to stick to it. The easiest way that I know
of to make certain you develop discipline in your schedule
is to NOT set unrealistic expectations. Give yourself ample
time to do each day’s action step – don’t overschedule.
Look for progress along the way to celebrate. Reward
yourself when you’ve reached a milestone. And, remember,
you’re GROWING a business. Just like physical growth, it
takes time … it WILL happen if you remain committed.

My recommendation: Weave in simple activities related to
the following categories – List building (ezine articles),
product creation(conduct interviews or hire ghostwriters),
site development (making your site convert more visitors into
buyers)and education (continuing to learn new ways to grow
your business)

4. Develop Additional Shortcuts. As you get better and
better at working with your lists, creating products and
tweaking your site,you’ll want to continue to improve your
business with new ideas,strategies, tools and resources.
The key is simple: never stop learning!

Visit forums. Read articles. Download reports. Identify
sites and resources that CONTRIBUTE to your success in
educating you. You want faster results, bigger increases,
automated processes,and other ways to get more accomplished
and more profit, with less work involved.

Everything depends on your developing a plan and sticking to
it.

And that is the REAL secret to building a high-profit
Internet business!
