Building Your Blog 205 - What To Do When You Run Out Of Ideas

I came across a great post today about coming up with new things to blog about when you get stuck or run out of ideas, and I really wanted to share it with you.  Check out 11 Fail-Proof Blog Post Ideas.

You can also check out this slideshow about What to blog about when you've run out of ideas HERE.

I'd also like to add the following idea generation techniques to the list:

1) Read other blogs in your niche to see what they're writing about.  Of course you should never plagiarize, but reading other blogs might spark an idea you haven't thought about before, or you may be able to expand on an idea another blogger has already written about, but perhaps hasn't covered as thoroughly as they could have.

2) Write about any relevant news in your niche.  Back to the time tested dog blog: If you're writing a blog about dogs, then go to Yahoo News or MSN news and search out news about dogs.  You might find that you enjoy writing about that latest dog show, the latest dog food recall, or about that dog with a fifth leg that was just born.  It will be interesting to readers, and it's a great fail-safe for when you've run out of ideas.

Don't forget to check out our other helpful post on this topic HERE.
