Do you have a blog but you hardly every post because you just don’t think you have enough good ideas?
Or maybe you are thinking about starting a blog but don’t think you will have enough content to regularly post.
This is one of the most common excuses I’ve heard when helping people set up their blog or website. I used to feel the same way until I discovered a few ridiculously simple tips to build a nearly endless and on-going list of blog topic ideas. These tips are something that you can start doing right now and I promise you, you will have a growing list of great blog post ideas TODAY!
Write Down Your Blog Ideas Immediately!
Any time you get an idea for your blog, write it down immediately. I can’t tell you how important it is to capture your idea right when it pops in your head. As soon as I got the idea to write this blog post, I pulled out my phone and typed the idea into my Evernote app.
Evernote works great for me, and I definitely suggest your check it out. You can create different categories and tags (such as “business,” “home,” “hobbies,” etc.), and you can sync your notes on your phone with the Evernote program on your computer.
Maybe you just use the notes feature on your phone or tablet. Or maybe you use an old-school notepad. Whatever. The important thing is to get it out of your head and capture it somewhere. This way, you have a growing list of ideas and you don’t have to worry about remembering them. Before I started doing this I would forget so many ideas and it frustrated the hell out of me.
Start doing this throughout your day and see how many ideas you capture by the end of the day.
