Generating ideas for articles and blogs using mindmapping
Last Update: October 16, 2012
Select one branch of the mindmap
Rather than looking at the whole mindmap, I always start with just one part of the map. This helps me to keep my ideas better organised and helps with my flow of thoughts. However, there are no hard and fast rules. Use your map in the way that suits you best.
In the example below I have started with the 'knitting techniques' branch
Using some of the words I have written down I do some keyword research. In this case - I started with the word 'knitting techniques', but this wasn't suitable. Here are some of the keywords I got from using Jaaxy
- hand knitting tips
- simple knitting tips
- knitting instructions left handed
- left handed knitting help
- knitting left handed beginners
- continental knitting left handed
- right handed knitting
- knitting joining pieces
- joining two knitted seams
- knit shoulder seams together
- knitting two sleeves
Choose a single keyword:I select a single keyword for which I'm going to generate as many article titles as I can. In this example my keyword is the first one on the list - 'Hand Knitting Tips'
