ID-10089855It’s one thing to know that you need a ton of unique, well-written content, and it’s a completely different thing to know what you’re going to put on paper by tomorrow. If you think you’re out of blog post ideas, you’re completely and utterly wrong, especially if you’re only sticking to the ideas in your own head. We all need inspiration, and sometimes that inspiration doesn’t hit us when we bang our heads against the desk or take a nap. When you need a bit of inspiration from the outside, check out the following ideas.

Google Alerts

Google Alerts is a relatively new system that allows you to set alerts to up to a dozen industry keywords. You can then tell Google Alerts to deliver up to 30 articles a day that pertain to those keywords. Read the headlines and if you find anything interesting, throw the links into a file for later inspiration, especially if you already have your topics done for this week. If you get several articles that have related topics, great! You now have some great ideas for a totally new article.

Skim Newspapers and Magazines

You probably don’t want to skim beauty magazines when you’re in the tech industry, but you never know what’s going to give you the right idea for your next article. Maybe beauty news or national news and the recession will affect your core audience, and you can somehow turn that into an article. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in – you can still talk about national trends and surveys, and your audience is likely to respond by depending on your for their important news.
