In 1999 there were just 23 blogs. Today there are over 1.5 billion and this number continues to grow. There are 2 blogs created every second.
So let that sink. 2 blogs per second are created.So the blog-o-sphere is totally overpopulated. That means that there is a blog for nearly every Facebook user.
You have to get noticed. No matter how loud your voice is, if there is no one to hear you you are wasting your time.
It is nice to know that people are reading your articles and that you are making a difference.
I want to give you a list with 11 blogging prompts that you can use in any niche. I know that the best content is evergreen and authentic.
1.Find a popular trend in your niche and argue against or for it. This will give you an edge and help you create an audience. In my other blog I have written many blog posts in a very un bias manner. It is time to speak my mind.
2.Write a list related to your niche. I love lists. Not everyone has mastered the mind-mapping technique, including myself. I find the whole main mapping very chaotic and totally useless. Lists on the other hand simply get me excited about getting things into order.
3.How to’s posts. Writing posts about how something can be done are some of the most valuable posts that I will be creating for you. If you have a blog or a website I strongly encourage you to share as many how to’s as you want. Simple useful help is also easy to write and very practical.
4.Book recommendations/reviews .I love reading. I do also understand that most people take their literacy for granted. Knowledge will not necessary make you wiser, but it will open your mind and feed your imagination. If you have read books that you loved and are suitable for your audience do share the experience. There are so many books to choose from and reading a genuine review/recommendation is a wonderful piece of content.
Sometimes you will be taking a walk and a blog idea will pop into your mind and you will not have a way of recording it. This happens to me daily.I have bits of paper in my hand bag and I keep fining bits of paper inside books and notebooks.I will keep writing nevertheless.
Thank you for reading this far.
Enjoy the ride,
