How to Generate Blog Post Ideas in Seconds

This guest post is written by Peter Joseph, a 15-year-old blogger from Australia.

Often when we blog, at times there may be moments when we have absolutely no ideas on what to blog about.

The worst thing we can do is leave our blogs dormant. If we have nothing to blog about that people want to read then we will quickly lose readers, subscribers and worst, the grip on our blog.

If you have no idea what you want to blog about next, here are the best tips to avoid this and come up with blog posts ideas in seconds.

Don’t think of blogging as a must do

writersblockOne heavy mistake everyone seems to make is they think that blogging is a must do.

They have a requirement that you must write a blog post at specific times on specific days or you will fall short of the cycle.

Only write a new post when you come up with a decent idea. It is better to leave your blog blank for a few more days then publish a blog post that isn’t of good quality and can put your readers off.

Here’s how to come up with post ideas in seconds and completely remove this step.

Start with the topic

The first thing you need to do to start coming up with ideas is to define your topic.

What actually do you plan to write on, is it blogging? Something about cooking?

Generally to get this far, it isn’t too hard, take a look on your blog, what topics does it cover; this is generally what you should write about and focus on in speed idea thinking.

Once you’ve done this, you need to start thinking up the catch phrase.

Find out the catchphrase

Forget any form of creativity; all the catchphrase is, is a jumble of words which you are going to use to formulate your ideas.

Catch phrases can generally be very simple. Just make sure you remember to pull it back to your topic; just come up with anything at all.

Right now, for a catch phrase at this very instant, the thing I came up with as I write this is β€œblogging in a line”.

Now this might not sound like much at the moment but there are various different topics that could come around this catch phrase.

The next thing you need to do is formulate your catch phrase and come up with ideas around it.

Formulate everything around your catchphrase

Using my blogging in a line example, the next thing you need to do is formulate everything around your catch phrase.

What comes to mind when you think of “blogging in a line?”

To me, I think kof the importance of having multiple blog posts and moving them down into various parts, also making your posts flow concurrently so that everything works together.

What comes to mind with your catch phrase? Look at each of the different words in the sentence and then the whole sentence and ideas will quickly come to your head.

Conclusion

After doing the tips above you will slowly realize how quickly coming up with blog post ideas is. No longer will you ever have to stress about meeting a post deadline with nothing to deliver.

Just remember now, all you have to do is think up a topic, find a catch phrase, formulate topics around it and you already have a perfect idea.

The idea behind this post took me around is seconds to think up, idea generate at that speed and you will save heaps of tine.

Only downside is. Now you have too many ideas and not enough time to write them all down.

Thanks for taking the time to put this post together Peter! This post is short and sweet, and very useful! A really great way to overcome writer’s block! πŸ™‚

Really great post Joseph,

You are absolutely right here and you offer some killer tips in your post.

YOu are right by saying one should only update when he has a great idea rather than out of necessity, the quality of the post is what matters most and not the quantity.

Thanks a lot for the great post,

thinking of a blog topic is always challenging..
but when it’s about current topic, thinking of an interesting way of writing would also be a challenge.. but challenges are fun =)

I do really generate blog post ideas in seconds when the time I was really motivated to write about something useful to my blog.

And when I do some, I will immediately jot down the titles and make some frames to not forgot the sequence of the ideas.

Thanks for this post. It was really helpful to me.

What I like to do when I am at a lack of ideas is to look at other media, like print magazines and newspapers, and see what kind of content they are publishing. I then check if I can adapt that to my blog/niche.

Nice post, friend!

My only problem is “What to do when you lose ideas WHILE posting the blog post”

haha. d^_^d Thumbs up to this guest post!

Awesomely refreshing post man

I love how you set the stage early – and you are so right, you don’t need to blog at all.
Thanks mate – nice perspective πŸ™‚

The subject of this article is really interesting. Nice to see the clear presentation here. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing this useful information.

Hi Gloson,

I agree, and the best way to come up with ideas is usually when you are a way from the computer or in your car driving, it just comes to you, if not get up off your chair and walk around

Yeah… I really agree with that advice. There are two reason why that works:

1. Our brain needs to be refreshed.
2. When we are driving or walking, we are relaxing not distracted by the computer, so our mind can think stuff.

Cheers!

There have definitely been times that I can not come up with anything to write about. It seems to come in waves for me. I will think of something to write about and it will spring additional ideas.

Nice tips. Many blogger run out of ideas and so stop blogging while little effort may help them building invaluable community for sure. I think that may let them end their blog suddenly. Often experienced this.

if only it were that easy, then every blogger will be successful:) but you have to have talent to get great ideas that fast..
