Every blog has a niche that it falls into, whatever it might be. Sometimes though, you can run out of topics to write about in that niche and experience a bit of writer’s block.
A great way to fight past writer’s block is to challenge yourself to blog for 20 minutes straight without stopping and write down blog post ideas as you go. Just keep writing on a topic until there isn’t anything more to say and then move on to the next topic.
You can also get some ideas by going to AnswerSocrates, entering a keyword, and browsing the questions and topics the free tool returns. Use one of the questions that comes up to write a long form answer to it.
Edit it with adding headings and correct formatting, and wah-lah – you have a finished blog post!
You can try either of these exercises but if you still need blog post ideas, use this list.
