Have you ever sat down to the computer only to find yourself with no blog post ideas? You’re drawing a complete blank! You become easily distracted! The time spins by! Your anxiety shoots through the roof! Deadlines approach! YIKES!!!
Well, even if it’s not all that bad, sometimes it is difficult to come up with blog post ideas as frequently as we’d like. There are a number of reasons for this, ranging from a lack of experience or exposure in the niche covered by your blog to spending too much time staring at a computer screen and not living life. Nonetheless, with some simple guidance, you’ll be surprised at how many blog post ideas you have available to you.
Why You Need Great Blog Post Ideas?
Before heading into a list of ways to spur the generation of blog post ideas, let’s agree that the general purpose of your blog is to communicate something in your niche. Certainly, you want your blog to be read, so it needs to be search-engine-friendly. But don’t assume all your traffic is going to come from Google & Co. In fact, it would be even better if MORE traffic came from other sources! So, while you’ll want to publish a number of heavily researched and appropriately keyworded blog post ideas to entice visitors via the search engines, you absolutely must come up with blog post ideas that will encourage visitors to return on their own accord.
What kind of blog post ideas will attract return visitors?
That is a great question and one that can be easily answered: the kind of blog post ideas that attract return visitors are those that are interested in you, your brand, or what you have to say about your niche. They need to be interested in YOU!
Well, if you’re constantly publishing blog post ideas that are thick, researched, heavily keyworded, and ooze very little about you, your perspective, your brand, or a story about your niche, it’s likely that your reader will come and go, likely NOT to return again. And that’s a shame. You need captivating, quality content that engages readers and keeps them coming back to your content to see what else you’re writing about.
21 Blog Post Ideas that Ooze YOU!
So, in order to attract as many return visitors as you can, generate blog post ideas about these kinds of things, in these kinds of ways:
- What you’re doing in your niche
- How you’re doing it
- What you just learned
- What is working
- What isn’t working

- Thoughts or feelings about something important
- A lesson that could be taught
- A mindset you had during a particular positive or negative experience, and what effect it had
- What is running through your head during a networking event
