What to blog about?
Now, I’ll be telling you what you can do to get ideas to write your blog posts.
Here are the ways –
One of the easiest ways to start writing on something is writing product reviews.
The reason is that it just needs to inspect a product and then you can start writing. It’s very likely that a product has some features and benefits that you can elaborate to make thorough blog posts.
Tip: Try to find out some products within your blogging niche. This will help you find ideas as well as make money. If you review some affiliate products, then chances are high that you can make money through your affiliate links.
Some review post examples are here –
If reviews can be written, why not comparisons?
Yes, you can bring two products and try to show the similarities and the differences between them. This will surely help you craft a nice blog post.

List posts are a combination of several products or ways. Writing this kind of thing needs a little effort, but has a great value.
Yes, list products are very effective in selling affiliate products.
In addition, if you talk about some ways in your list posts, then these seem very attractive to your audience.
Another great benefit of writing list posts is that it requires very little effort to craft them. So, if you write a few hundred words for each of the products or ways of a list post, then you could easily craft a long-form post.
Here are some examples of list posts –
You can also plan for writing an in-depth guide on a topic. Guide becomes very in-depth and needs much time to complete it.
So, if you start writing a guide on any topic, then you could cover it by writing a couple or even dozens of posts.
Here’s an example of this kind of post –
Suppose that you have learned a secret about something. Now, you can share that in one of your posts.
So, it’s a good idea to share your secret sauce with the world.
Many of you wanna keep the secret hidden which is very bad because today’s secret will be revealed tomorrow. So, why won’t you be the first to share your secret?
Look at the post below, it’s a kind of secret sharing post –
Taking interviews is very effective in writing a quick post. Also, you don’t need to write almost half of an interview because the interviewed person completes the rest of the interview.
Taking interview has also many other benefits such as engaging with other bloggers and getting traffic to your blog are some of those benefits.
You can see here that I’ve already published some interviews on my blog –
Your real-life case study can give you much inspiration to write your next blog post. So, check whether you can analyze anything within your blogging niche.
Here’s a case study type post –
If you have visited a place, you can share the experience that you had in that place with your audience.

You can also allow guest posts on your blog from other bloggers. Then, you can publish posts written by others on your blog without much effort. You won’t even have to brainstorm for writing a blog post if it’s a guest post.
The cool part of accepting guest posts is that you’ll be getting awesome blog post ideas on a regular basis.
Income reports, traffic, and other achievements
These things often get much attention and thus you can go for writing on your income, traffic or other achievements that you have experienced in your life.

So, you can also share your monthly income or traffic stats or anything else that you think will attract and inspire your readers.
Success or failure
You can also share your success or failure so that your readers can come to know what things can make them successful.
Blogging means you’re always educating your audience in a fun making way.
So, never feel shy to share the stories of your failure. The same way, be confident to share your success stories with your audience.
Who knows a single success or failure story of you may change the entire life of any of your readers!
Comment answering post
You can bring some of the top comments on your blog and then make a blog post on that.
This practice will attract more of your readers to leave their valuable comments on your blog.
The simple reason is that if they see that you’re highlighting your blog commenters by writing some blog posts, then many of them will start participating in blog commenting in the hope of getting featured in some of your posts.
I’ve never written this kind of post yet, but I’m planning to do this in the coming days because I see much value in it.
Popular posts of the year
Pick some of the top posts of the previous year and make a list of those posts in a blog post.
If you’re running short of ideas to write your next blog posts, then this can save your writer’s block for sure.

When your assessment is complete, now start writing a blog post combining all the awesome posts from the last year.
This is a good approach when you hit or end a year.
Writing this kind of post is super easy because you can just mention the stats of the posts that you’ve included in the new post.
You’ll see that you’ve come up with a long post in this way.

If you let others know about your future plans, then you could remember them from time to time as all of those are written on your blog.
I’m sharing one of these things here. If you visit the about us page of this blog, you’ll see the following dreams of mine –
