1. 1) Keep a Notebook Handy (Both Physical and Virtual)

1.1. Inspiration can strike at a moment’s notice.

1.2. A small spiral notepad and pen or pencil in your pocket or purse, as well as one beside your bed, ensures that you’ll never miss jotting down a great idea.

1.3. There’s even a waterproof paper and pencil set you can purchase online for your shower or bath

1.4. Digital recorders can also be used for capturing great ideas.

2. 2) Write About Your Failures

2.1. When you come across to your readers as a real person, engagement and trust begin.

2.2. When you describe a situation relevant to your market or niche where you suffered a significant setback, you become human to your readers.

3. 3) Write About Your Successes

3.1. Using this blog post idea hand-in-hand with the one above can make for a great two-part post.

3.2. It also solves the problem of coming up with content for two consecutive posts.

3.3. Just make sure not to “toot your own horn” too loudly.

4. 4) Create a “Best Of” Blog Post

4.1. Make a short “Best of” or “Top 10” blog post that points back to previous popular content on your site.

4.2. Make sure all of those posts cover a single topic, or different problems that are important to your market or niche.

4.3. This would be an excellent one-stop resource for your followers

4.4. It also develops important on-site SEO due to the backlinks this post will create.

5. 5) Write About A Daily Experience

5.1. Take a random event from your daily life and tie it into your niche

5.1.1. Your readers get to see that you’re a normal person with normal experiences.

5.2. By doing that, you simultaneously help your readers while becoming “real” in their eyes.

6. 6) Steal Some Name Recognition

6.1. When you steal name recognition from an already popular and globally recognized industry leader, the title which is created instantly begs for a closer look.

7. 7) Get Physical

7.1. Get your blood pumping to energize your brain.

7.2. Get away from your computer and turn off your cellphone to “reset” the way you’ve been thinking.

7.3. A quick workout gives your body and your mind a much-needed wake-up call.

7.4. You could also just go for a walk. Some fresh air and fresh surroundings will help you think differently.

7.5. Don’t actively try to come up with new ideas while you’re out.

7.5.1. It doesn’t matter if you don’t come up with any. But if you do, you’ll want to make sure your notebook is close by.

8. 8) Ask Your Readers

8.1. Don’t waste much of your day brainstorming when your brain refuses to cooperate.

8.2. Shoot out an e-mail or make a short blog post asking your readers exactly what they’d like to hear from you.

9. 9) Thank Your Readers

9.1. People genuinely like to be appreciated, and this holds true across cultures, ages and genders.

9.2. Just be honest and tell them how much their feedback and loyalty means to you.

10. 10) Compile a FAQ Post

10.1. Look back over your e-mail and comments, and use the feedback from your readers to answer the FAQ

10.2. This will provide a resource that pays dividends indefinitely

10.3. It also saves you valuable time when you get one of these questions again.

10.4. Alternatively, ask your readers for questions and answer one question every post you make.

11. 11) Interview Experts and Bloggers in Your Niche

11.1. It lends you authority while also revealing valuable information that your blog readers are looking for.

12. 12) Browse Facebook and LinkedIn Discussion Threads

12.1. Go social and find out exactly what your potential customers are talking about.

13. 13) List Your Readers’ Problems

13.1. Think about one of the top problems you know your readers are having.

13.2. Then employ numbers in your title, and you’ll likely have a popular post.

13.2.1. Eg: Use the title “7 Ideas for a Great Blog Post When Your Mind Simply Refuses to Participate” and then list seven of your favorites.

14. 14) Connect Two Totally Unrelated Things

14.1. Find something that’s notable or popular, and add it to your title with a relevant problem or solution

14.2. “What Superglue Taught Me about Viral Blogging” is unique and creative, and will get your blog post read.

15. 15) Use Google’s Autocomplete Suggestion Technology

15.1. Type in “Why bloggers” or “Bloggers hate to” or “Top blogger” into Google.

15.2. Then look at the autocomplete suggestions.

15.3. This will instantly give you some great ideas for blog posts

15.4. Another great tip here is to simply go through the alphabet and add each letter for more suggestions.

15.4.1. For example, if you Google “Why bloggers a”, you’ll find every popular search that starts with the letter a in that position, like “Why bloggers are important”

15.4.2. Then move on to the letter b, c, d, etc.

16. 16) Change Your Writing Environment

16.1. Take a walk instead of sitting in your computer chair.

16.2. Changing your entire writing environment can help too.

16.3. Changing your environment could even mean changing the time of day at which you normally write.

17. 17) Play A Word Association Game

17.1. Start with one word e.g., “gardening” and link it to another word, then another, then another — until you have a viable idea.

17.2. It could go like this: gardening, outdoors, activity, active, fitness — and then you could write on “How Gardening Helps You Keep Fit!”

17.3. Keep track of your word associations by using a mind map.

17.4. Refer back to this mind map any time in the future when you’re struggling to come up with new ideas.

18. 18) Comment on Other People’s Blogs
