If writing is not your thing, consider creating audio or video content. Interviews are great in both audio or video format. Additionally, you can create how to video posts. Video, if you’re comfortable in front of the camera, is actually a great way to create quick and relevant content.

How Do You Come up With Content Ideas?

Creating consistently valuable and interesting posts can be quite a challenge. In fact, it may be the biggest challenge of owning a blog. Here are a few creative ways to find content inspiration:

  • Read, read and more reading. Often just the headline on a magazine or newspaper can inspire a few blog ideas.
  • Social networking is a great way to promote your blog, pay attention to what others are saying. What information are they looking for? What problems do they have and how can you help to solve these problems? You can come up with some great content topics just by perusing social networking sites.
  • What questions do you commonly get asked? These make for great blog posts.

Organizing Your Content

To organize your blog content there are many approaches. You can wing it or you can plan ahead. Planning ahead can save you a lot of headaches. Consider sitting down once a month and planning the month’s content.

Content is the most important part of your blog. Spend some time deciding what kind of content you want to create. Create a system of planning your content in advance. This will make it easy for you to sit down and write several blog posts at once. You can schedule them and then spend your time focusing on other tasks.
