How To Generate Unlimited Blog Ideas
by Susie Caron © 10.27.15
If you really want to blog and you feel lost as to how to generate enough content, here’s a simple plan to get you going. Below I explain what you can do if you’ve already written and published a book. Then I describe how to generate ideas if you haven’t written a book, but want to write blog articles now.
If you’ve written a book do these:
1st: take out a physical copy of your book and a book mark.
2nd: without ‘thinking’ begin with the preface, introduction or chapter 1 and scan for words that ‘jump out’ at you. Jot these down on a piece of paper or on your computer. Do NOT think, Just Do.
3rd: when you get tired, put the book mark where you stopped. You can resume later.
4th: look at your list. Do you know what you just did? You just created an important list of words that resonate with you. They actually mean something to you.
5th: write a sentence, a statement or question with this word.
6th: Now you have a word, and written something important to you. You can probably see, now, how you can write a 300-500 word article to share what you know, in your heart, is important. (If it’s important to you, it is also likely to be meaningful to others.)
7th: Write your article. Bonus: Writing it will help your readers get to know you, to like you and want to read more that you’ve written.
8th: You’ve written a blog article. You want people to know about it and read it right?
That’s why you need to know this:
How to do tweets or Facebook posts about your blog. Here’s how:
Read over your fresh, new blog. Highlight on your own copy, any words or phrases that seem to stand out as main ideas, quotes to tweet, or could be written as questions. Write down 3 or more of these and turn them into tweets, or Facebook posts.
To get people directly to this your latest and wonderful blog article do this.
After you’ve uploaded it to your on-line blog site, click on the TITLE . That should give you a specific URL for it. Click on that and copy it. Save it. You can then go to a URL shortener: I use GoogleURLShortener,and paste your long URL in. Then copy and save the shortened link to use when you tweet or post to Facebook, or other places.
You Don’t have a published book? No problem.
1st: take out a physical copy of a dictionary or thesaurus. (I prefer the thesaurus.)
Grab a book mark.
Start at “A” and go through jotting down words that seem to jump out at you. These are the words that mean something to you.
Now follow the same path I wrote above. Hooray! You have unlimited ideas to blog about. Just take one you like and write. Have fun!

Just wanted to say that I love your posts about the different ways to connect/relate/understand your child. It has given me a new approach towards understanding my daughter and allowing HER to tell me how she feels instead of me suggesting to her how she should feel. Thanks Susie!
