Four Easy Ways to Find Inspiration for Your WordPress Blog

It’s not alway ease to come up with news and blog content that is going to be interesting to your readers. Many website owners feel they have little to share.  With these four simple tips you’ll be on your way to developing great content in the least amount of time.

Facebook Feed

Your Facebook feed is packed daily with articles and content that is relevant to your business (because you’ve selected people and organizations to follow).  As your feed passes by day after day, notice how you can never find a post that was once there? Now, when you find a post that might make a great article, you are going to hit the little arrow to the upper right of the post and hit Save Link.  In no time you will have a collection of topics that you might want to write about.

Google Alerts

Google Alerts is a free online clipping service that allow you to monitor topics (via keywords or phrases)  that are of interest to you on the web.  Instead of having to scan the Internet for new and fresh ideas you’ll find that inspiration for new blogposts right in your inbox.

Google News

Let’s say there is a new development or technology in your industry and you want to know how others are reacting for your inspiration. Instead of just searching in the Google search box, search News, Search Tools, and select your time period.  The example below shows the news list results for Facebook Live over the past week. Which actually might be one of my next blog posts.

Industry Events

Trade shows and conferences are a great resource in which to obtain relevant topics in your industry. If you can’t attend a conference, review the agenda and workshop titles and descriptions to get some good relevant article ideas.
