The days of worrying about what to blog about next are over.
Sure, there are already lists here and there of 10 blog post ideas or 20 things to blog about, but the ideas are usually pretty bad. They either don’t really help (“Take a bath and then you’ll have an idea come to you!”) or aren’t applicable to what you’re blogging about (“Write about how much traffic you get!” Come on, what audiences outside of the Internet marketing or blogging-about-blogging niches would care about how much traffic your blog gets?). On top of that, so many of the ideas in those lists of blog post ideas are the same from list to list. It seems like everyone is recycling the same handful of ideas.
365 Blog Post Ideas: Years of Blogging Ideas for Any Niche is the single best way to make sure you don’t run out of ideas for a long, long, loooong time.
I’ve seen so many blogs fail simply because the writer didn’t have enough to write about. The writer gets bored and quits or the audience gets bored and loses interest in the blog. And even if you do manage to come up with enough ideas to talk about for the next month or two, trying to constantly come up with blog post ideas is one of the most stressful and time-consuming parts of running a blog.
I’ve been blogging for 12+ years now and have published thousands of blog posts. I’ve sold a blog for a four-figure sum (not retirement money, but hey, how many people can say they’ve sold a blog for that much?). I make a good chunk of my income now from blogging. And I’ve turned blogs into ebooks that have made me thousands of dollars. Over the years that I’ve been blogging, I’ve been compiling article ideas and taking note of great blog post topics that I see. This book is the result of my many years of experience and observation.
Most of the 365 ideas (roughly 320) are specific things that you can write about right away. An example of this is “Things to keep in mind when buying X,” where you of course replace X with something related to your niche or topic. Links to at least a couple of real-world examples (i.e., blog posts that are based on the blog post idea) are included for each idea. The remainder of the 365 ideas are websites, tools, exercises, and resources that will help you come up with ideas. An example of this would be how exactly to use YouTube to come up with things to blog about.
