These are five tips to help you create blog post ideas.
1. Create Sequels for Your Hot Blog Posts.
If you have some blog posts that are getting renee jeanne mignard a lot of visitors or lots of comments then these are what I would call hot blog posts. If you have posts with many comments you should have been acknowledging those comments by commenting yourself with more information on the subject and answers to any questions asked. Why not gather up all this information and write a sequel to this post? Although it may seem like you're repeating yourself, your new post could bring in new visitors to your original post that would not have read it.
These are hot posts if you have many visitors to your posts. You should consider expanding on the original post with another blog entry with more information on this hot topic.
2. Questions in comments.
Read through all your blog comments again and see if there are any questions or comments that you could use to write a post to expand on these comments or answer any questions raised in a more comprehensive way. The fact that people have raised these issues in comments to your blog indicate that you visitors would like to know more about them. Did you find any new information recently about these topics? Write a blog post about these topics if you have.
