How to Get Fresh and Unique Content Ideas for Your Blog

Updated on November 8, 2010

You are not the only one that falls victim of being clueless sometimes on what to write. Sometimes too, the so called professional writers lose grip of ideas on what to write on their blog. This is the moment some would call "mental block." Ideas just refuse to come to the brain. Remember nobody is perfect. But for every problem there is a solution somewhere. What victims of this circumstance normally do to scale through this is to go to certain sites where some ideas are there waiting to be taking. Though when offline some smart people carry a little notepad with them while doing something else. So when an idea just springs up, they jot it down. This is a very smart way but what if I don’t have a notepad or misplaced my pen at that moment? Okay this: I'll simply memorize my ideas and jot them down later. As much as this is good, we can't always rely on memory. I could forget even before sitting in front of the computer. To save the hassles, I have put together some few brilliant ways that are used by lots of writers.


Top 5 Ideas Bank That Come To My Rescue.

1) Forums: I am a member of a couple of forums and I know how much I have benefited. I have asked some couple of questions and have received fantastic answers. Many who ask questions in forums could have as well used the search engine to get results. So the questions they ask are just the right ideas you need. I personally use digitalpoint the most.

Tip: Just pick a category of the several categories listed and browse through. There are many questions being posted. You can answer the question by writing a full article which you can then post on your blog. Many smart writers use this method.

2) Ezinearticles: On the homepage, you see newly approved articles. Just browse through and pick one that interest you and write your own version of the idea. On this site you will be overwhelmed with ideas.

3) Yahoo answers: Yahooanswers is one site that you get to see a lot of questions being asked. Questions are asked as frequently as in seconds. Questions can vary from health to romance to computers and so on. Pick on a question (idea) asked and make an article of it. Here you see questions like "how to get rid of spots quickly?" or "what I can do in London for enjoy myself?" or "Can a compound have a molecule with a single atom?" and so on. Some questions might sound cheap and funny, but believe me, loads of people are asking these questions.

4) Google trends: this site possesses some good newest ideas you can write about. These are the most searched for and most talked about ideas in town at the moment. Categorized into Hot topics and Hot searches, these keywords can drive a lot of traffic to your blog as they are very hot and trendy.

Google keyword tool: This tool has come of age to be one of bloggers' most valuable tool. It is a very versatile tool. In as much as it does its main job of finding keywords for users, it is very useful when it comes to giving you ideas to write on.

Tip: When you want to use it for generating ideas, just write any common term or keyword and make sure not to check the "Only show ideas containing my search terms " box just below the keyword box. When you click on the search button then you see several words or phrases you can use.


To write articles from ideas you got, research the keyword (idea) on a search engine. Read a couple of articles you find there and draft your own. Only an expert or professional can write an article well off hand doing little or no research.
