Ideas for blog posts from TV programmes
We've been told that TV makes you boring and dull. This is not entirely true. Of course, watching too much television leads to an unhealthy, lonely lifestyle. However, TV viewings in small dosages can give you unending ideas to write about. Even reality programmes can trigger ideas for posts you would've never thought of. Who's really the biggest loser in the world? Never mind the people who won the talent shows, whatever happened to their runners-up and who are the most successful non-winners? Quiz shows, for example, can give you ideas to put together interesting 'top ten' lists which are then read by thousands of people interested in that topic. These could be your most popular blog posts ever. 

Ideas for blog posts while going for a walk
Nature in itself is inspiring. Even a cold winter's day, when the world seems covered in snow, can bring bright, shiny ideas. However, we have to go out there to get to it. So get on your walking shoes and go for a stroll, meet people, and take note of the behaviour of strangers around you. Something they do or say can give birth to a character for a short story. You can write an entire short story/article based on something strange, odd, or remarkable one stranger did. Do not seclude yourself from the world. I know it's no longer popular, but I find talking to strangers wonderfully satisfying, and totally inspiring. Of course not many of them know how to blog. They don't need to, because the best thing about talking to strangers is that people are willing to tell you things they would never reveal to friends and family. Did you almost step in dog poop (like I did this morning)? This can be the starting point of a very amusing blog post, or a serious article about society and the responsibility people have for their pets.

Ideas for blog posts from Google Trends
Not all of us are experienced when it comes to  search engine marketing  but a quick search on Google Trends will show you all the hot topics people are searching for right now. Have you run out of ideas of your own but want to create a blog post that will be popular? Go to the link and see what's come up. This is pretty straight forward. Just research and write about one of them.

Ideas for blog posts from old photographs
My kids love looking at their baby pictures. We find lots to talk about when I tell them stories of the photos we took of them. At the time of taking the pictures, we didn't realise they even had stories. Old photographs have a very inspiring quality to them. The sense of sight works overtime to conjure up forgotten or hidden thoughts and events. A wonderful childhood memory can be a beautiful blog post. It doesn't have to be a personal revelation, you can disguise your article/story as much or as little as you want. Events can also trigger ideas. Adding an old picture of yourself to your post will certainly be popular with your regular visitors. It will also give validation to your new update. It's vital you know how to optimise your pictures in your blog posts. The linked article will show you how. 

Ideas for blog posts from reading other writers
There's a difference in copying from other writers/bloggers, and being inspired by them and their stories. I've been enriched by blog posts from fellow bloggers. Sometimes reading their articles have reminded me of things I've wanted to write about, but had forgotten (because I didn't have a pen when the inspiration hit). Reading is still one of the best ways of getting ideas for writing. We'd all be lost without each other.

It goes without saying, always carry a pen and notebook with you. The most inspiring and exciting idea can be lost in a second if you don't write it down.

I find inspiration every where God is and you are one of the most inspired/ing writers there is. God abides in you.

I often get ideas from reading other websites where they mention something in passing and I think, 'hold on!'. Plus newspapers can sometimes be an inspiration too. There are sometimes things going on in the news which I can give what I call a sideways glance...

Anne Lyken-Garner March 29, 2011 at 1:37 PM  

Awwww... Thanks, Judy. That means a lot to me.

Anne Lyken-Garner March 29, 2011 at 1:38 PM  

Definitely, RJ. I missed that one. Newspapers (news in general) is certainly an important place to look for ideas to write about.

Great tips as usual Anne! Ideas can strike from everything, and anywhere too!

Anne Lyken-Garner March 29, 2011 at 9:38 PM  

Yes, Icy. Your photos are very inspirational too. I love seeing your new updates.

Anonymous March 31, 2011 at 5:11 AM  

Thanks for the tips, Anne! I get my inspiration for blog posts from books, videos, movies, conversations, other blogs...just about anything.

Great tips! It sounds kind of odd, but some times I get ideas from seeing tv commercials..

Ann Summerville April 5, 2011 at 11:40 AM  

Great ideas.

Similar to the photograph idea, I like to think of old/funny memories when I can't think of anything else to write. Especially since everyone has those 'awkward' years they can relate to.

visions unto myself

Great tips!! Thank you so much for these!! I actually have made some posts from ideas I got after hearing about some new reality tv shows. Reality tv has endless blog fodder.


Charleen Larson April 6, 2011 at 3:02 PM  

I can't tell you how many blogs I've started and abandoned because idea generation was just too much work.

Thanks for the tips -- much appreciated!
