Currently, there are a lot of bloggers (both new and old) that have problems with coming up with topics for their blog.
The truth is that coming up with topics for your blog is not that difficult; it simply requires being deeply focused and creative.
The faster that you come up with a topic for you blog, is the faster that you can begin writing it.
I will gladly share some ways in which you can come up with topics for your blog and you are going to laugh when you find out how easy it is to do.
1.) Read Other People’s Blog Posts
Now, you are not reading other people’s blog posts for the purpose of stealing their content. You are reading their blog posts for the purpose of forming your own opinion.
Do you understand where I am going with this?
Okay, just in case, you are lost, I will tell you.
We human beings are opinionated by nature; we either agree or disagree with another person’s opinion. For example: if you read a blog post about the best methods of disciplining children and you disagreed with the blogger’s perspective, you can begin composing a blog post pertaining to the same subject matter; but in this case, you will be sharing your unique opinion about it.
Another thing that you can do whenever you are visiting another person’s blog is to check out the comments thread; it contains potential topics for your blog posts.
Commenters have opinions too.
2.) Be Highly Observant
Something interesting is always happening around us; the problem is that a large percentage of people do not pay close attention to the things that happen around them.
Here are some things that you can observe:
- The people around you.
- The plants around you.
- The animals around you.
- The sounds around you.
- The fragrances around you.
- The architectural structures around you.
Now, those are just a few examples of the things that you can observe (And, what you observed can be used as a topic for your blog post).
Never pass up a good opportunity to be observant.
3.) Hang Out With The Elderly
The elderly are filled with a wealth of information and most of them do not mind sharing with others the things that they have experienced.
You can learn the following things by hanging out with the elderly:
- What life was like at a particular era in history.
- The type of food they consumed when they were young.
- How to prepare a certain recipe.
- How to take good care of plants.
- How to not make the same mistakes they did in their younger years.
- The secret to their longevity.
Those are just some of the things that you can learn from the elderly by simply hanging out with them (You can come up with a topic for your blog post by paying close attention to some of the things that the elderly mentioned to you).
Do you ever hang out with the elderly?
4.) Converse With Teenagers
Teenagers have a unique perspective on life. They usually see things differently from their parents.
You can learn the following things by conversing with a teenager:
- The latest fashion trends.
- Where the cool kids hang out.
- The type of music that they listen to.
- What their favourite movies are.
- What they really think about grown ups.
- How they really feel about school.
Teenagers are interesting; it is not hard to come up with a topic for your blog when you have conversed with them.
Do you ever talk to teenagers?
5.) Check Out The Trending Topics On Social Media
Checking out the trending topics on social media is a great way to come up with a topic for your blog; you simply choose one and go with it.
The reason why checking out the trending topics on social media is one of the best ways of coming up with a topic for your blog is because it helps you to save precious time coming up with a topic (That is great for those people who are extremely busy).
Have you ever tried this method?
And, if you have not tried this method, are you willing to give it a try?
6.) Use A Blog Topic Generator

7.) Pick A Random Book From Off Of Your Bookshelf
The majority of us own books; therefore it is very easy to find one that we could read?
Why pick a random book from off of your bookshelf?
You are doing it with the sole purpose of doing a review (Book reviews are known for making splendid blog topics).
You can tell your readers the following things:
- Information about the author.
- What aspects of the book that you liked.
- What aspects of the book that you hated.
- What type of rating you gave the book.
- Whether or not, you would recommend this book for your audience to read.
I will admit, that book reviews do make interesting blog topics.
If you are into books, you can do a book review for your audience.
8.) Post About Your Emotions
Another wonderful method to come up with a topic for your blog is to post about your emotions.
You can explain to your readers:
- The reason why you are sad.
- Who or what made you angry.
- The reason why you are scared.
- The reason why you are happy.
The above things should not be too hard for you to do, since we all have emotions.
Are you willing to post about your emotions?
9.) Visit The Supermarket
Oh, believe me when I tell you that the supermarket is a fabulous place; you will not only buy food there; it will also inspire you to come up with a very interesting blog post topic.
You can share with your readers:
- Whether or not, you think the price of food is too high.
- The reason why you love a certain product.
- Which types of food are people buying the most.
- Whether or not, your favourite brand of chocolate can be easily located.
- The type of customer service that you got from the staff of the supermarket that you visited.
You can try the above suggestions (or anything similar) the next time you visit any supermarket.
10.) Listen To New Music On The Radio
You can also come up with a very good topic for your blog by simply listening to new music on the radio.
You can tell your readers the following things:
- Information about the singer.
- What you liked or hated about the song.
- What you thought about the music composition.
- What you thought about the singer’s voice.
- If you thought that the music artiste was overrated or underrated.
Those are just some of the things that you can highlight in a future blog post.
If you enjoy listening to new music on the radio, posting a music review should come easily for you.
I truly hope that I have enlightened you on workable methods of coming up with topics for your blog.
As I have mentioned earlier on, the methods that I presented for coming up with topics for your blog are easy to do.
Now, if I can do it, anyone can!
