I think most people have already got it covered... In general though I think people visit blogs because they want to find specific, detailed information so making sure your blog covers as much as possible and does so in an informative manor will build trust in you as a professional resource. That being said you want your blog to be easy to read and follow so splitting up pages with lots of pictures, subheadings and bold text for any keywords will help to make your points more clear and accessible. Interactivity is also something to consider, so making your visitors feel more apart of what you are talking about. Asking questions and generating discussion is definitely worth a try here.

In regards to content you need to keep up to date with your industry and find out what people are talking about. One way to do this is to join as many websites/forums related to your subject as you can. This way you can find out what's 'hot' and discuss your thoughts on it in your blog which would also be a great way to ask your visitors opinions. Maybe you could check out other blogs on your subject too and compare them to yours. Find out what works and also if there is a niche within your field that other people haven't covered so then you have something unique to offer your visitors.

Good luck!

Default What To Write In My Blog?

Well, writing a good content of the blog is not really easy. For me, I think, you should do some research also about your topic or any related reviews that could help you tell about your product or services. It is important that you have the knowledge of what you want to write. Perhaps, your target market could give you an idea also.

Having a clear post structure helps. Start with an intro, body with your main points, and a conclusion.

People often ask me how I come up with things to blog about, and I find the question strange, because my problem is the opposite.......

You can try content curation. In this technique you can combine 5 different post in one post. This technique is very effective

Blogging can get you a lot of traffic and so can guest posting on other people's blogs with a link back, such as this post at Thinking Capital.

It is very difficult for me to find some good ideas so that I can write some good blog posts on this blog. As I do not want to post something similar to what I have posted earlier.

Because of this the no of visitors have also decreased to my blog, as consistency has broken.

Any help/ideas please.

Many Thanks
I understand your difficulties. But I think if you're not good at it, you might be able to hire people who have experience blogging for you. That will help you have a great blog and learn from their experience

I struggled with this before in my previous blog. I truly believe that if you pick a topic or niche you love and know about it makes it easier. I started a new blog and am writing about starting and growing a blog.

In my blog I am writing WordPress tutorials and sharing my own experiences of growing the blog.

Now I know what you're thinking, why start another WordPress blog. Well I am a WordPress freelancer and do this for a living. Therefore, I eat, breathe and work on WordPress on a daily basis.

I have tons of things I can share about this topic. So coming up with ideas is not an issue.

If you chose a topic that you need to research on a consistent basis to get some ideas. Visit other bloggers in your niche to see what they are writing about.

Don't copy them, but see how you can improve the content or add to it to make it better.

Subscribe to other blogs in your niche by using Feedly and see what others are doing. How can you do it better?

Social media sites can help you see what others need.

Just keep working on your blog and reading as much as you can. Whenever you think of a new topic write it down so you can write a new blog post on it.

Use this forum or other forums in your niche to see what people are asking. Forum threads can help you decide what your next blog post should be.

Eventually, you will have a list of hundreds of ideas you can use for your blog, you won't have to worry about what you should write.

Hope this helps.

I agree! Every theme (blog) has its reader. Try to imagine that you're a visitor of your blog. What would you be interested to read about?
