How do you select a topic for your next blog post?
What I believe that choosing the right topic to write a blog is vital if you want to engage your reader. How important is this for you and what measures do you take to select a killer topic for your next blog?
For me what matters most is the subject that engage my mind to write is with full focus. I prefer to write to satisfy my inner self then to satisfy others. For me its easier to satisfy own self then to think about other minds. If one can satisfy own urge then it will be easier to satisfy the world with some meaningful effort with precious topic so far. But this applies to me and the whole world may think differently. I believe in spontaneous work actually. If I am not convinced my self then how can i convince the world by my work that what bothers me when I focus to start any new hub.
Thanks dghbrh for your reply. So what's your experience in terms of engaging readers with your strategy of selecting a blog topic.
I have gained many precious friends during this period of hubbing here. That is the most important aspect . As it feels great to notice their level of encouragement they show toward my work. The way they relate with my work is worth the effort.
I will normally look through related blogs, news posts, and forum topics if I'm stuck on what to write. Forums are probably my favorite source though, because it gives you a good idea of how popular the topic is.
As far as the importance of engaging your readers, it's really the biggest reason to write a blog. If not for your readers, why bother writing on at all. When I first write a new post, I just write to get all the stuff out I want to for the topic. After I'm done, I reread it as if I'm reading someone else's blog. While I'm reading is, I ask myself if someone else wrote this, would I read it, or better yet, would I care about it. If the answer is no, I erase it and start over. There have been a few occasions that I thought I had a great topic, but after rewriting it a few times I just scrapped the idea because I didn't like how it turned out.
