How I came up with these blog post ideas and how to use them

The 50 topics I’ve suggested can easily make up content for one blog if you’re in the content creation niche.

You can expand further on most of these topics to have more content that could have you occupied for up to a year.

These ideas aren’t random ideas – I did some research before I settled on the topics to share with you. You can feed them into your favorite keyword research tool to improve on them if you like.

If you want to know how to generate writing ideas, you can read my detailed guide on how to come up with killer blog post ideas that I published a while ago.

How long can posts from these ideas be?

For any decent writer, churning out at least 2000 words from the suggested topics should be a walk in the park.

And I’m not talking about fluff but relevant and valuable information. With serious research, I know many of you can even double that number.

Remember, detailed and exhaustive posts tend to rank at the top if readers find them helpful.

Also remember, writers or any other type of content creators tend to be avid readers, so reading longers posts shouldn’t be an issue. All you have to do is make your blog posts a bit more interesting.

Include a story about you or your brand

Be sure to add an about page. The page should be as informative as possible. Tell your story in this section if you’re working on a personal brand or a company.

Whenever you get the chance in any of your posts, link back to your about page. If your story is compelling enough, you can get new readers to care about you and be more interested in the content you have for them.

For example, my about page tells my story and the motivation behind this blog. It has earned me a couple of emails from anonymous readers encouraging me to keep on doing what I’m doing.

Where to find more blog post ideas

Many different bloggers have posted lists such as these on diverse topics. Feel free to check them out and add any deserving ideas to your editorial calendars.

A quick Google search like the one that got you here should do the trick. To get you started, here’s one of my favorite lists from one of my favorite bloggers.

Wrapping it all up

Ideation especially when you’re just starting out can be challenging – ten blog posts in and you have no idea what to write next.

My hope is that some of my ideas can get you going for a while as you keep on picking up more ideas along the way.

Blogging is a challenging venture, and you need all the help you can get. That’s why I wrote this post.
