Ever struggle with what to blog about?
You just can’t think of anything and you know you need to get a new post up?
Happens to the best of us.
There are a few tips to avoid having nothing to blog about:
1. Keep and maintain an editorial calendar. I use Trello (free) to manage my calendar and can easily move around virtual post it notes based on what ideas I want to write. When a new idea strikes, I create a post it note and add it to my board.
2. Write a post about what you’re currently trying to figure out. If you’re searching the Internet for a solution to a problem you’re having, chances are others are too. Turn that into a great blog post listing the solutions. Here’s a great article talking more about this idea.
3. Purchase evergreen articles from a VA to keep on hand for when you have a block, or when you run out of time. Come up with several topics that will be great to post year round and hire a professional virtual assistant to write them for you — or to generate an outline with key facts so you can write around their text and make it your own.
4. Brainstorm a list of 100 ideas. Take time to write a list of ideas that would work great for your readers. When you have extra time, start a draft of one or more of these articles. As you find more information add it to the article. In no time you’ll have a completed draft and all you’ll need to do is tidy it up and launch.
What other ideas can you come up with so that you can avoid having nothing to blog about?
