Reading comments, tweets, from Twitter; or free article directories can easily spur ideas for excellent posts.
Comments and discussions on other blogs.
Read posts on blogs that are in, or close to your niche.
Read the comments.
Look at blogs in your niche or subjects that are close to your niche.
You will often find that the comments expand the topic or come up with unusual angles on the niche. You will find yourself agreeing with them and you can soon develop these into the outline of a post.
Other comments will make you mad, angry or you feel contempt for the writing. OK use these emotions to write a better post, a post that make sense or a post that explains the issue properly.
You can also combine ideas from two or three posts and make three or four points and – you’ve got a good post.
Use a package, such as Tweetdeck, to monitor a set of keywords that are important to your blog.
Scan the tweets and you may get inspiration for a great post.
Alternatively follow the links to blogs – read a few posts, combine ideas from two or three and you then come up with an outline, with a twist, that will lead to you approaching the subject with yet a different angle.
Free article directories
Do a search on your topics relating to your blog.
Scan through the shorter, often badly written articles, often crude, marketing message. Combine the ideas from two or three articles and you have a great structure for a great new post.
