Arggggghhhhhhh! It’s one of those days. My area of knowledge lies in work at home so how come I can’t think of anything to write? You’d think there is a huge array of topics to write about, right? I have a health blog and I shouldn’t ever run of things to blog about, but you know I sometimes do. It’s not so much that I run out of things to write, it’s what I want to write about.
Here are some sources that have helped me find topics to pursue and research.
1. Forums are an excellent place to get ideas for article writing. An active forum with a lot of inquiring minds can easily jumpstart a topic.
2. Television or radio. Often times there is something that have caught my attention or a tidbit that I found interesting. Off I go to do some research on it.
3. Magazines, newsletters, newspaper. Same reason as #2. There are many great topics in print that are interesting, thought provoking, controversial and opinionated.
4. Google Alerts. You can receive the latest news on your choice of query. They are emails automatically sent to you when there are new Google results for your search term. A great way to find topics according to your interests.
Like creative ideas, topics can come about in many different and sometimes unexpected ways. With that in mind, try keeping a notepad and pen with you or close to you. Keep your eyes and ears open because everything can be a topic starter; it just depends on whether you want to write about it or not.
To your success,
