Ever found yourself stuck for blog post ideas? It is something all bloggers experience at some point.
Here are 7 ideas that will get you out of trouble:
1. Share your Favourites: Share your favourite book, website, podcast or movie that would be relevant and valuable to your readers.
2. Social Media: Social media is a great place to find content ideas. Have a look at accounts of other people in your niche and see what is being talked about. You can also ask if anyone on your page has any questions they would like answered.
3. Share Worksheets and Checklists: Everyone loves a checklist. There is scientific evidence that you release some feel good hormones when you tick off something on a to-do list or checklist.
4. Teach Something: People always want to learn something new. What is something new and relevant that you could educate them about.
5. Interview Someone: Interview someone interesting in your niche. You could interview them on audio or host a written interview. You send the guest some questions by email – they respond – and then you post the questions and their reponses to your blog. Easy Peasy!
6. Share a Video: With literally millions of videos on YouTube, you would surely be about to find something of value to share with your readers.
7. Invite a Guest Blogger: Invite someone to write a blog that is relevant for your niche.

Some people say RSS feeds for blogs are going a bit out of fashion, but I still make use of them every single day for both submitting and receiving information. If you aren't sure what RSS is it stands for Rich Site Summary but a lot of people say it stands for Real Simple Syndication.
In show #10 I go into more detail about what RSS feeds are and how you can use them to help you with content curation – finding great content to share with your readers.
The RSS feed reader I use is Feedly. The main thing I like about Feedly is that it is available on a variety of platforms – there is a web version of it and it is also available as an app on your phone.
