Does coming up with new content for your website keep falling to the bottom of your to-do list?
Even though I know I have the solution to my target client's greatest problems and want to share the BEST blogs to help them… sometimes writer's block just says otherwise.
And sometimes I just run out of time or don't feel like writing… but that's another story.
I combat writer's block by saving posts that inspire me and keeping a running list of working topics as they come into my thoughts.
Basically, I brain dump into a “blog” folder on my Google Drive.
And it works!
Looking through my Google Drive of blog topic inspiration gives me the kick in the butt to start writing.
And when I really feel like going for the gold, I ORGANIZE my topics into a SPREADSHEET!
Yes, in my Google Drive 😉
So if you have a hefty “blog” file on your Drive, or if you just need help coming up with a few blog posts to share with your readers, this list is for YOU.
10 BLOG POST IDEAS TO GET THEM TALKING

TOUCH ON TRENDS
Listen closely: the internet does not need ANOTHER article about the latest trending topic. Don't waste your time trying to reinvent the wheel in 2016.
But… what your audience DOES need is a post about the latest trending topic and how it relates to THEM. If the latest Facebook algorithm or SEO change affects your readers, write about it and add value in a way that only you can.
Sure, most websites have a decent “About” page. But don't we always want to know MORE? Share your quirks and random facts in a personal blog post.
For another take, share more about how you got to where you are today or where you are headed in the future.
This gives your readers a better look into who you are— and assures them that, yes, you are human!
TAKE ON FAQ'S
If the same questions keep coming up time and again, it's time to throw them into a post!
Share the questions and take the space to answer them in full. If the questions/answers are big enough, break them into a few posts.
Bonus: if the questions come up again, you can always link the inquiring person back to your blog.
BARE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT
One of the biggest post ideas on this list requires baring some pretty personal numbers.
Talking about financial success in your business is super personal. But sharing your successes also builds your credibility. If you're a coach and trying to build a team, putting the numbers out there encourages newcomers to the field that success really IS possible!
Everyone loves getting a little internet lovin'. Feature a client who has realized success, created something big or something else noteworthy. This can be as simple as a get-to-know post to a full-on case study!
A client feature can get a little personal, so don't forget to check with them first 🙂
WRITE A LIST
AHEM. Notice the title of this post?
Build a list from the most helpful resources that your audience can tap into. Don't forget to make it super easy for your reader and hyperlink every one! Just sayin'.
SHARE A CHECKLIST
Break down complex directions into an easy-to-follow checklist. This post format can be actionable tools to follow your how-to posts.
Remember to add enough spacing so it's easy to read and follow along. Checklist posts are easy to write, read and share!
Have you recently dug into a topic? Like… real deep?
Thanks to Google, it's easy to spend hours digging into statistics that others would kill to get their hands on.
Make double use of those lengthy notes and share your findings in a blog post. Don't forget to credit your sources, too!
