You’ve created your blog and started making daily or weekly entries. You’ve been doing great for a month. But now perhaps you feel yourself running out of steam. Or maybe you’ve had other things on your mind and just can’t think of what to blog about.
Recently I joined up with the Blogging From A-Z Challenge. It starts in April, so I sat down to brainstorm what topics I could write about each day in April for each letter of the alphabet. It struck me as I did this that I had enough material to last me for far more than one month!
The ABC’s of Article Ideas
Whatever your blogging topic, take the time to sit down and list out your ABC’s. Brainstorm everything you can say about your topic beginning with the letter A. Do the same for letter B and so on. If you get stuck on a letter, try using a thesaurus, dictionary, or even a search engine. You might just come up with blog ideas that you never thought of before. By the time you reach Z, you should have a mountain of blog articles to last you for quite some time.
I hung the list next to my computer and add to it constantly. I keep a photocopy of it in my datebook so I can jot down ideas as they occur to me throughout the day.
I used the ABC’s to brainstorm some ideas for blogs. Make a list using each letter of the alphabet of topics that interest you. Don’t think about it too hard; just jot down everything that interests you that starts with the letter A, and so on. You might surprise yourself! See what you can come up with.
Do you have an idea for finding article topics or coming up with ideas? Share it with me! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
Have a wonderful day, Karen
