How to Find and Research Interesting Topics to Write About

Updated on April 28, 2014

Looking for topics to research on?

Most of us are always looking for various interesting topics to write about. Be it for research papers, for blogs, for websites, people are always searching for topics to write about. If you are on the lookout for popular topics and are totally confused about where to find them, then let me help you out. There are some popular websites which you can use online for researching purposes.

I have successfully managed to use the given resources on this page to write interesting research papers and topics. All you need is an Internet connection and you are all set to write good articles, essays or research papers on topics that are interesting, argumentative, popular and helpful!

Why do we need to look out for interesting topics to write about?

Be it a research paper, a blog entry or a hub - everything you write needs to be interesting else there won't be any attentiveĀ readers! Research paper topics usually need to be argumentative and elaborative. You cannot just choose a tiny uninteresting niche topic and drag the subject on and on. This can annoy anyone and everyone who validates the research paper. Moreover the subject shouldn't be too extensive either wherein you won't be able to prove your point in a couple of hours. The topic you decide to write about should be -

  • Interesting - To capture the reader's attention!
  • Popular - To cater to a global audience!
  • Helpful - To prove beneficial for your reader!

You need to do some research on popular extensive niche topics. But how do you do that? Most importantly - from where do you find interesting topics to write about?

#1 - Check EzineArticles for Topics to Write About

I usually check around EzineArticles to figure out topics to write about. I go through the various articles that people write about and then choose a research topic which I'm most comfortable with. There are various categories that you can go through, so choose accordingly. This doesn't mean that you blatantly copy each and every sentence of the published article into your blog entry or research papers. You can go through different articles on the same topic and decide accordingly if it's the topic you need to write about. You can then further understand the topic and write an absolutely unique and original article on the subject.

Another feature of EzineArticles that you just have to check is the "title suggestions" tool. You need to be a registered member in order to use this feature. If you haven't yet joined EzineArticles, then you can do so now for free. The "title suggestions" tool can be found just under the list of live articles.

I remember I just wanted to write on a random topic, and I stumbled upon "green poop" using EzineArticles title suggestions. After a little bit of research, my hub "Why do I have Green Poop?" was born.

Just type any keyword for title suggestions and they will give you a varied list of interesting topics to write about. One of my favorites!

#2 - Check Constant Content for Topics to Write About

Constant content is not only useful for buying and selling articles, but you can even use the website to get ideas on interesting topics to write about. Here too, there are various categories which you scan through to find a topic of your choice. Go through the titles and see if it's worth doing some research on. Even if these articles are available for a price, you need to know that most of the information is already available on the World Wide Web. You just need to some smart research and all the data will be available at your fingertips.

I'm guessing there are many more marketplaces like Constant Content out there which allows a person to buy or sell articles. You can use such online domains to do some research on interesting topics to write about. The plus point of using such marketplaces is that you know that these topics are hot in the market and are hence popular! You might be surprised at some of the interesting options that come up -- probably some gems which you might not even have heard of before!

#3 - Check TheFind.Com to Figure Out Product Topics to Write About

If you want to start a hub or lens and you want to promote a product, then the Find.Com category map can make things simpler for you.

There are various categories which can be found in the map and all you have to do is click on a particular niche to get hot selling products related to that keyword. You can then select a topic related to the hotselling product and write an interesting article or publish a page about it.

Tell us what research you do to find interesting topics to write about!
