22 Tips for New Blog Post Ideas [Infographic]

It’s Infographic Saturday! This week I’m featuring a terrific infographic by CopyBlogger (designed by BlueGlass).

I write a blog post every day, sometimes more than one. While I have my own strategies to maintain a steady blog topic pipeline, the volume of content I write does occasionally make creativity challenging. That’s why infographics like this one are so valuable.

I haven’t used all of these methods, but here are a few that you’ve likely seen on my blog:


Current examples are this Infographic Saturday feature along with Sunday’s Featured Blog Post. An older feature I wrote was Shedding Light on Social Media, where I listed all of the illuminating blog posts that I read during the past week.

This is a good way to take the pressure off of creating something completely original, and the ideas of others can also help start discussion.

Share Your Success

Here are a couple of examples:

It’s good to show a human side, and sharing in successes is one way to do that!

Relive the Memories/Recycling

I write a ton of content, so occasionally I’ll write a piece (I guess this is an example of that) that aggregates blog posts within a single category for easier access. Here are a few you’ve likely read on these pages:

Take a Walk

For me, I take a run. It’s a good way to clear the head of distractions and focus. I need to do more of this!

Get Personal

Every now and then, I’ll talk about my family. Here are a few blog posts that I’ve written recently that got a little personal:

And of course, there’s the About Me page that tells just about everything you need to know about me (and more).
