My next tip is to get inspired by your favorite bloggers. Here at Wealthy Affiliate alone there’s a ton of inspiration. Right in front of you! Check out other members blogs and pick up a tip or two.
And no, this does not mean I'm giving you permission to copy their posts. However, you can draw inspiration from what they're publishing on their sites and their blogs here at Wealthy Affiliate!
Maybe they covered a topic that sparks an idea of your own, or perhaps they wrote an opinion that you disagree with. That means you can share your thoughts on your own blog and make a blog with the same topic.
Another great way to utilize other blogs is to read their comment section. There's a good chance you'll find many questions going unanswered in the comments, especially on larger websites, where they don't tend to actually respond to the people who are leaving the comments. We are pretty good to respond to each other’s posts here, aren’t we? Yes, I think so!
You can respond to those people with your answer, or even publish a blog post of your own about it. If their question is something you can help with, and it's frequently asked by your target audience, this is a valuable content opportunity for you to take advantage of. If you’re smart about it, link back to your own content!
Tip number three is to spend time where your audience hangs out, Figure out where your audience is spending their time online and then make it a priority to be there yourself. This is your chance to engage in conversations with them on what they're talking about and get to know them better.
After all, that's really important in your long-term success, So whether they're hanging out in a Facebook group or an online forum start doing a little investigating. Find out which issues they're struggling with and how you can help them out. This has the potential to give you an endless supply of blog post ideas. My best advice for you here is to get familiar with Quora.
Email Marketing And Polls
Tip number four is to turn to your readers for ideas. Have you been receiving questions from readers in your email comments or on social media? You can address those concerns in a series of blog posts.
Odds are if people are asking the same questions it's something many others are struggling with as well. By creating a blog post to answer those questions, you can reach a much wider audience that may be searching for the same solution.
However, if your audience hasn't been asking you any questions, it doesn't mean you're doomed. You can take the initiative and ask them yourself: Create a survey for them to fill out and ask what they need help with and what they want to see from you There's nothing better than hearing it straight from the source.
My final tip for finding blog posts, Ideas is to pay attention to your analytics, They're housing, more content, ideas than you probably realize. You just have to know where to look. Check to see which blog posts are receiving a lot of traffic.

This will let you know what people are looking for when they come to you if you have answers to their search queries in your archives. If not, you have a brand new blog post to write.
