You definitely might have stuck at a certain point of time and ran out of blog post ideas for your website. It’s a common struggle that happens for every blogger . As an author, I’ve faced this several times & have come upon writer’s block. But, did I stop? No, every intention of the author is to draw the attention of an audience. Even so, if you keep writing articles that are shallow in content, it is overly time-consuming & useless. But, how can you overcome writer’s block & write on the most amazing topics? By doing what needs to be done.
There are many ways to research topics for our blog.
1. Research on Quora
Quora is one of the biggest q/a websites where you get to meet some people and get answers from them. It’s easy as it’s simple. You ask a question and the one who has savvy about your concern will give you answers. That’s it. It’s one of the useful websites to gain enlightenment and knowledge from people in the world. It’s sort of a knowledge-sharing website.
Just like that, if you look at the top. You can find a search bar where you can find for things. So, whenever you ran out of blog post ideas. Just search for a keyword term. There you will see tons of relevant questions and keywords. Out of that, you could derive blog post ideas and outline your schedule.
As you can see at the above image. Find low competitive keywords and get complete attention to your article. That’s it
2. Read Blogs in your Niche
As a blogger, it is important to read blogs in your niche that can provide you with endless blog ideas. It may seem like stealing to you. But, it’s a no.
Even though I said read blogs related to your niche, that doesn’t mean you write about the same topics as them. Though, simply swap the title and write a piece on it.
For example, let’s say another site wrote an article on the “5 Best Features of Google Chrome”. Don’t do the same, write a blog post about “5 Hidden Features of Google Chrome”. There you have it! It’s a simple and easy way to come up with ideas for blog posts.
Nevertheless, you could also get blog post ideas from the article sentences. Whenever an article refers to another relevant subject. Then you write your piece on that subject. As well as this, you will have tons of post ideas from reading other blogs. All you have to do is keep diving into blogs in your niche and find the ones you are interested in.
3. Find Blog Post Ideas from your Existing Article
Honestly, I don’t think it’s strange. I do this several times a week. Whenever I want to come up with a blog post idea. I’ll look over my writings and examine them thoroughly. Now, going through the article, I will be shown many ideas to make. It’s called finding blog post ideas from your existing articles.
Moreover, when you’re writing an article, you should know what you’re going to write. If you intend to discuss some other subjects at that point. From there, a blog post idea comes to you.
Say you are writing an article on ” How to Get Rid of Dandruff “, and in the course of the writing, you need to mention ” home remedies for dandruff ” while discussing the remedy for treating dandruff. So there you have it, write another article as a follow-up to your cornerstone article,

As I mentioned at the beginning. Initially, our brain comes up with a brainstorm, If it doesn’t work, we will explore other ways to generate blog post ideas. However, don’t turn your back on brainstorming, you do not know how much potential lies within your mind. Focus on the sole subject and pay attention to it. Your mind opens to a door where it carries an abundance of blog post ideas.
The simple process is to brainstorm on a cornerstone content and bring secondary topics to it.
6. Leverage Social Media Platforms
Today, social media is one of the most important sources of traffic for millions of blogs. Across all the social media platforms, you can find a lot of information and blog post ideas that can help drive traffic to your site. It’s neither too easy nor too difficult. It’s that grey line!
1. Follow #Hashtags
One of the best ways to get tons of ideas is by using #Hashtags. It is clear that you are familiar with this topic. Most hashtags are used on twitter, where we see them every day in the trending lists. In your quest to find a great blog post idea, check what’s trending and make the article about it to gain attention.
See how others are using a hashtag. In the end, you get an idea.
2. Browse pages in your niche
It’s one of those things I do sometimes. I explore some social pages in my niche to see what they’re doing. It’s something a competitor does. It’s common for authors to view other authors’ articles and see how they treat them. You can search for topics on social media and switch between pages. You see the pages within your niche there.
Read what they wrote. But don’t leave it that way. Add more value and shrewdness to your article by stating the same thing in a more direct and concise manner.
3. Embrace Guest Bloggers
It’s not always possible to write the articles continuously on your own. If you want to make your blog more interesting & diversive, give opportunities to authors who would like to be a part of it.
Use your social media to ask if anyone is interested in writing for your blog. There is a good chance they will contact you about guest posting.
Furthermore, when you want to host guest bloggers on your site. Create a ” Write for us ” page like I did. This way, they can see what you are expecting and can convey your requirements.
I believe these 6 methods will surely come in handy for you.

It was lovely and thanks sharing tis article and information help us
Thanks sharing this article and help us about the find post
Some great ideas here, I love reading other people’s blogs for inspiration too 🙂 thanks for sharing!
Good tips. I have started using Quora more to find out what people are talking about and reading about, especially with history & philosophical questions (I.e. Why did the Eastern Roman Empire Survive, What did Schopenhauer say about reading, etc.). For my niche (humanities), it’s a great place to get a prompt. Your #3 is another good one. I often get an entirely new topic from a digression in the current article I’m writing. That digression doesn’t make it past editing but is worthy of its own essay later on. That’s the fun thing I’ve discovered about writing. Things I never expected – ideas, insights, and even wisdom – pop up out of nowhere when I least expect them. I love it!
Thanks for sharing! I never thought about using SEO for ideas. Thank you for sharing!
These are great tips! I find reading other blog posts helps come up with ideas, but I haven’t thought of using Quora or looking at keywords!
Great advice! We all hit a block every now and then!
Great suggestions! A few of them never would have occurred to me. Thank you!
So many great tips in one post! I’ll definitely come back later when I have I can’t come up with new subjects to blog about. Thank you so much for sharing!
Great tips, I especially never thought about re-reading my older posts to get inspiration. I love this idea, since I can also link to each other that way!
One great option that has helped me a TON was to listen to your audience. Read your blog comments, social media comments, etc and see what questions they are asking. It’s a gold mine! They are literally telling you what they would love to read about next.
Absolutely, it works for a lot of people. Great point
