A lot of bloggers are struggling to find interesting blog post topics and ideas for their blogs.
It takes a lot of time, determination, effort and persistence to make your blog stand out with rich contents.
A lot of bloggers apply different techniques and methods that work for them.
Below are topics and ideas that should keep you busy for as long as a year and should inspire you to have a system for your blog.
This list is gonna keep you busy for the whole year.
1. Tutorials and How-to Guides:
You can have a tutorial blog post where you explain or teach readers how to solve a problem or use a product or service in your industry or niche.
How-to guide posts are also very powerful and can be used to nicely highlight guides on approaching a problem or also using a product or service in your industry or niche.
2. Latest news in your industry (latest industry news):
You can share the latest news in your industry or niche. Your blog can be a go-to site for getting industry related information.
3. Current events:
You can share your opinion about events that are happening in your area or industry. People tend to google a lot of things and adopt other people’s opinions on topics.
And who knows your opinion can also be featured on a website, newspaper or magazine.
4. Controversial subjects:
This is a tricky one but should be treaded carefully. Sharing your opinion on hot topics in your industry or residence can also get you a lot of traffic and attention.
(E.g: Do you have all that you need to _____)
A checklist is so helpful in so many ways, it can serve as a guard list for the novice in your niche or industry.
Can also serve as a reference point when people plan on using a new product or travel to a new place, or do anything that basically needs a set of rules to follow.
6. Case studies:
Case studies are quite different from tutorials.
Case studies talk about what you’ve done, how you did it and what you accomplished while doing it.
You can write a post talking about people who have influenced you or motivated you in your journey as a blogger or in your business or your personal life.
You could also write on top-notch individuals in your industry or niche who are making trending.
Ever thought of having interviews?
You could have a live or online interview and record the transcript on your blog post. The video of the interview can also be added to the same page. So your readers can either watch the video or read the transcript of your interview.

9. Advice from the experts:
You can write a blog post where experts in your industry give advice/tips on how to use certain products or services.
Over a period of time, this experts may notice you sharing their contents then pay you to write reviews about what they do.
This was gotten based on the point shared above.
People love reviews, I personally check for reviews about any product or service before I buy or use.
You can have a blog category where you give reviews about products or services. It also helps if you’ve personally used those products or services.
Just like above, these companies may notice your reviews and pay you to advertise their brand.
Also at the end of your reviews, you can add affiliate links to where your readers can purchase the product or services you just wrote about. When the reader ends up buying any of those products or services you get paid a certain percentage because they were referred from your affiliate link/blog.
You can write a blog post where you compare a product or service of two or more competitive companies.
Eg if you have an IT blog like BeeTcore’s blog you could write a post where you talk about the differences between various internet providers in your residence.
12. Video blogs:
Nothing as powerful as having video blogs. There are a lot of people who would rather watch a video than read. You could be a vlogger, youtuber or related.
You could also have a blog on your website, a youtube channel, and have them together on the website.
We build such websites also. This is an example. Scroll to the bottom of this website to see the YouTube channel directly on the website or this website to see the YouTube Channel + Multiple YouTube Playlists directly on a page.
Ok so back to our post ideas… 🙂
You can write posts where you share videos. Videos can range from a fun outing with your team in the park, a conference your brand just concluded, a product/service launch, fun at your office space, and related.
Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.
You need to understand that people process information in so many different ways.
Some read to understand, others watch a video to understand, others need a combination of shapes + numbers = graphics, while others 🤐🤐🤐😏
An example of an infographic is below:
15. Original Contents:
So far I’m super sure you already have lots of topic ideas. You have to sit down and come up with contents, readers love fresh and original contents.
Search engine companies like Google use special robots/software called spiders to detect original content on the internet. When they do, they rank your blog or post higher in google search results.
AVOID COPYING CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES ELSE YOU GET PENALIZED BY A REDUCTION IN YOUR SEO RANKING.
16. Pictures or Images:
You could share certain pictures about an event in your industry or niche that just concluded. You could also create a blog post where you share a gallery about a certain product or service.
You can recycle your old posts.
You have to know that packaging is key in everything you do. A lot of bottling companies change their stickers at a certain period of time then record an increase in their sales. Same quality, same quantity but different labels.
18. Ebook presentations:
You can share an ebook you recommend in your niche or industry. Write a small review about it while sharing.
Live webinars are becoming very popular. Companies like Zoom & Google+ hangout are making it easy for service providers and companies to have direct, live and interactive sessions with clients or potential clients.
This has made troubleshooting very easy in the IT industry.
So you could have live webinars on how to solve a problem or just to interact with your clients or readers.
Turn your next post into a game for your readers.
A short and simple quiz can attract a lot of rivers and post shares to social media.
Do you need reviews from clients or readers, set up poll posts where readers have the ability to vote.
