Some of best ideas come from my best readers, that’s why I read each and every comment I get on my blog posts. Sometime your readers will shares there suggestion, and questions, provoking thoughts, or anything that could become hot blog topics.

I use netvibs to subscribe my competitor’s blog, to see what they are writing and what their readers are sayings to get more productive ideas.
Do you know the simplest way to get ideas for your upcoming post is by asking? So ask your friend and family to what they like to see your blog.
People love to hear about how you and other people screwed up. Be honest and share your mistakes with your readers and also shares what you learned from those mistakes. As I say
There is no harm in making some more mistakes if you learn something new from them..
Do Something Different
People likes who are different from others, You don’t believe me, then think about superman, Spiderman, Wonder woman. People like him because they are different from them. So you also try differentiating yourself from other bloggers by doing something different like hold a contest, give something to your “nth” readers, write pros and cons on topics, etc…
Turn of Your Computer
Some of ideas strike my head when I’m not in front of my computer. So turn off your computer and take a walk with your friends, spend your time watching movies, browse the magazine rack. Then chances are very good that you’ll find a great idea for your upcoming post. So sometime spending your time with your friends is good for blogging. I spend lots of time with my friends. What about you?
You need a break because you’re out of the idea for your upcoming post. Then why not you ask another bloggers to write a guest post for your own blog. Guest post also helps your readers to get a fresh prospective and give you time to thinks about a devastating blog topic.
