    I have files of writing from college papers to little snippets of stories I have started over the years.  I pull the files out and read through them and ideas usually start to flow from that.  Also I realize how much I have matured as a writer - sometimes a little red-faced at how juvenile the writing was.

    I'm having that issue now. I just browse through my blog to look for ideas, or maybe my pinboards on pinterest. I know I should know what interests me, but sometimes it helps to look at it all laid out like that to get an idea. I actually have some writers block right now, so I've just been taking a break.

    You can write a hub on anything. It's not like you write in magazines or newspapers. Here you're focusing on SEO articles and that can be on product reviews or on things or places that interest you. To get ideas, you can do google search on a particular topic. Collect informative points from various websites and re-arrange them in order to maintain the flow.

    Please ensure that the websites from which you collect points provide true information. If you've any doubt, you can get books from amazon on that topic. Used books won't cost too much.

    I go "hub hopping" and see if anything inspires me. Maybe I will feel an emotion, think of a place, or see a Scripture or quote that motivates me to write. Also, I look through old writings and see if any new thoughts come up. Sometimes, I just sit and type and see what comes to mind.

    I just wait for something to pop into my head, then I start a list of things, and choose which one to write about. I have a few in mind now, just gotta get time to sit down and write them.

    I go to question and answer sites or here, I will check what people are talking about, check them if it is a good keyword and then I make a hub out of it.
