How Long Does It Take to Form a Blog Post Idea?
Often ideas can just pop into your head and you don't get the chance to write your thoughts down properly.
Follow these 8 simple points to generate blog post ideas:
1. Make Notes
Have a notebook and pen close by, especially when you're out and about. I've mentioned this is in a couple of other blog posts. Scribble down ideas that pop into your head.
2. Look Back on Old Notes
Yes even past notes you taken can help you think of new ideas. Not unlike the point mentionedin number 1. Only this time you're using the useful notes you've taken.
3. Bring Ideas Together
String ideas together and see what the outcome is, if its nothing then you've haven't lost out on anything, and its always good to try all avenues of thought.
4. Early Draft
Start writing your draft early, it may help to shake some things loose in your brain. Once you start on one idea, your imagination will take hold, and do the rest for you.
5. Make a Favourites List Out of Relevant Blog Posts From Your Favourite Bloggers
Favourites lists can be really handy, especially when you're all out of ideas. By having a collection of posts at hand, you can run through these ideas and see if anything sparks your imagination.
6. Get a Second Opinion
Run ideas over with family and friends to see if there's anything you may have missed, they may have some ideas you could try out.
7. Compose Your Final Draft
After all of your thinking, note taking, and drafts have been done, you can sit down and write your final draft, tweaking it if need be. From one simple idea, you may have discovered a series of posts instead of just one.
You can sit back and relax, until your next articles need to be written.
