If the question "what should I blog about?" runs through your mind like a squeeky hamster wheel every morning as you sit in front of your laptop, guess what - you're not alone.
What Should I Blog About?

Finding interesting and relevant topics that relate to your business is a big speed bump for plenty of new bloggers, and one of the top reasons they stop blogging altogether. Don't be a quitter! Here, a few quick and dirty ideas to get the brain juices flowing.

  • Check out Google Trends. Anything popping up that relates to your business? Write about it!
  • Answer your customers' most frequently asked questions.
  • What's the weather like outside right now? Does it impact your industry at all?
  • What lessons can your customers glean from a recent news item?
  • List ways your industry has changed over the past 10 years.
  • Pick a few of your favorite products and describe why your customers should buy them.
  • Educate your readers on ways your industry (and therefore, business) can help them in their daily lives.
  • Create a gift guide for major holidays (Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day, ect.)focusing on the gifts you would give someone who was interested in your industry. For example, if you're a landscaper blogging about garden care, put together a list of gifts you'd buy the home gardening enthusiast.
