How to find blog topics

Searching for new topics can be simple. Using a few techniques that will dramatically yield results will give you blog topics for months to come. There is no need to reinvent the wheel when these methods have worked for multiple bloggers. 

Your email box.

You may receive newsletters or emails from lists you have joined and find popular topics by scrolling through your email box with a fresh eye searching for ideas. 

Google email separates your email into different categories: Primary, social, and promotions. If you look on social, you may see posts from Twitter or other platforms you are a part of and receive notifications via email. When you do a quick scroll, you can get a general idea about trending topics in your area of interest. Find the most common keywords and create a post that fills a gap in content. 

When emails are spam, which emails from lists usually go into spam, you can find them in promotions. List topics have previously been researched, so there is a good chance you will find some good topic pieces.

Solve a problem.

Usually, the central platform is Facebook. Everyone has at least one social media account. Lots of people put their personal life on Facebook. If you take a few days and look at your feed, at least one person has a problem that needs solving. 

Another clue would be in that person’s comment section. Write a post and solve the issue. Find golden nugget responses that indicate agreement with the problem but no solution. 

This method can be used on all social media platforms. 

There are plenty of groups where people are asking questions. Find your niche and join ten groups. Dedicate some time each day to researching what people are asking. Compile a list of their questions in a Google Doc. Create a unique post that addresses a specific query with solutions no one else addressed. You can fill in that gap of information. 

You can also start a keyword list with these questions. Pick out common words and phrases, and this will help you come up with your first headline and be highly targeted. 

Search FAQs and Questions on similar blogs as yours

By doing a quick search on Google, you can find questions people have often asked on other websites that dedicated an entire article to answering them. This method saves you time and helps you build your keyword list.

[blogging] questions

[blogging] facts 

[blogging] faq

When you research and find duplicate questions on different sites, you have established a base question. You can come up with specific answers that have yet to be addressed. This will set your post apart from the common core question and give it a new spin. It’s a fresh perspective. 

Using your Market defined keyword should bring enough results to get an idea of a trending topic and an ongoing question or fact that needs addressing. 

When using facts as a topic, find the most relevant fact and create a post with your spin. You create an entirely new view by adding a new idea, thought, or solution to this fact—That’s how you get your pot to stand out from the rest of the posts on the topic. 

Forums

There are plenty of forums that have questions consistently being asked. Quora.com is one of them. A quick search can bring up questions that have been posted within the last hour. Pay attention to the comments. See what other people are suggesting as solutions. Try to come up with a unique take on the question. 

Locating the information to help you understand what your ideal reader wants is a great way to brainstorm blog posts. It directly solves a problem that people face at the moment. You will build relevant content by filling the information gap with your input.
