How can you do this? We take a look at 4 great ways you can think of something to blog about.

Everyday life experiences make excellent blog posts

As a matter of fact, some people probably think of blogs in the sense of being personal journals, because many of the most famous ones are just that. People love the intimacy of blogs, so that’s one of the main reasons they’re drawn to reading them the in the first place. Be yourself and talk about the things that interest you. Although you’re unique, you’re not alone in your thinking.

Don’t be afraid to give your opinion

Many of today’s biggest mainstream media stars are famous basically just for giving their opinion. And many of their “fans” watch the show because they don’t agree with them, not even one iota. So why not just “tell it like it is” in your blog, giving your opinions about subject? You’ll need to be witty to get away with this, but if you do it well, you’ll have plenty of people to talk to and even some to argue with.

Use an interview format to talk with interesting people

Okay, so you decided that you weren’t the most exciting person out there. That doesn’t mean you should quit your blogging. Admit your weakness and come up with a creative solution. Make your blog about “other people” if the focus on yourself is not that appealing to you. Most people are more than happy to talk about themselves, so arranging interviews should be very easy. If you have a knack for the interview format, you’re bound to find readers.

Explore the world and find something to talk about 

If you’re really having trouble coming up with ideas to blog about, you may indeed have a real problem.  You might be spending too much time on your computer and not enough time out there in the world experiencing life.  If that’s the case, you need to do something fast to give yourself new material to blog about.  Sign up for a class, go on a vacation, or indulge in one of your hobbies.  Immerse yourself in something other than computer work.  Once completed, you’ll return refreshed to your terminal, eager to blog, with no shortage of new ideas to blog about.
