How To Get Blog Ideas

iCal Red June 4th 2007You have a blog, but you don't have any ideas which you want to fill your blog with interesting and fulfilling posts to gain visitors and be an internet legend, what do you do? Read on.

One of the first steps is to have a purpose to write about, for example I have Great Design, for all things design. Adsense Hacks, for all things related to Adsense and finally a new and upcoming blog about Apple Mac Tips.

How to get Ideas?

What you need to do is day dream. If you have a blog which is about design, you should have plenty ideas about design. Write all the little tidbits down. Most of the time, when you have time to think a little more this idea will come into play.

Other ways of getting ideas to post is when visiting websites. Most of the time you will see a website which has any idea which you could use make better or comment on. Keep this in a separate folder, every couple of days re-visit them. Most of the time people get ideas, and post about that. Its a could way to pick up knowledge.

As I said in the beginning keep a piece of paper or post it handy. They always come in useful when you reviewing whats on them before you put them in the bin. That little word or sentence in the top corner which you wrote ages ago could be one that brings the visitors. Keeping note also helps.
If you are the modern user and have a Mac, stickies is another great option. Most of the time when dashboard is running it is going to be about something I am going to post the next day.
