Did you know that you can absolutely blog about anything for free and have an audience? You literally make anything interesting. I am constantly amazed by the enjoyment I get from blogs on seemingly boring topics. For example, I’ve recently begun reading blogs on various herbal supplements and have found them fascinating. Did you know that brain boosters, such as Neuro Clarity, can help improve memory and concentration? Yep, there’s a blog about that! There’s a blog on pretty much any topic you can think of, even the zombie apocalypse. Who doesn’t love reading about that?
However, how do you take a topic, like herbal supplements, and blog about them in a way that will interest your readers? I’m going to go over just how to do that today. At the end of this post, you’ll be able to take your free WordPress site and pick a topic on pretty much anything and make it interesting.
First of all, any seemingly boring topic can come to life by starting off with questions. Questions engage readers by giving us an opportunity to learn and grow. The pursuit of answering these questions can be rewarding. First off, any uninteresting topic can be made interesting by asking questions.
Additionally, there are almost undoubtedly going to be folks who are also asking those same questions and want answers. Not sure? Go to Google’s Keyword Planner and see if someone is searching your topic of interest. All it takes is a hundred searches per month to build a solid foundation of a blog audience. To continue finding new content, continue to search for questions that your readers have and answer them. Look at the comments they’re leaving on your site. Create a call to action at the end of your posts looking for questions from your readers. They can be a gold mine.
If you’re not sure where to begin, do so with the essential 5 W’s: who, what, when, where, and why?
Who started the memory pill industry? What are memory pills? When should you start taking them? Where can you buy them? Why should you take them (i.e., the benefits and the risks).
As you can see, the questions are endless!
Do your research
You have a bunch of questions, so what do you do next? Next, you go forth and dig out those answers, but how? This is the part that takes the most work.
Use reserouces such as Quora, Google Alerts, and Google Blog Search. For example, if your question is “What do nootropics do?”, you’d want to first explore the accompanying category in Quora. This will give you even more ideas and raise even more questions.
After Quora, you can move on to other resources. For example, explore Topsy and search for “memory supplements” and see what you come up with.
Of course, the best questions come from you. Yes, you!
Do the aforementioned tips, and you will be well on your way to blogging success!
An added bonus is that you’re saving your readers time by doing the research and answering their questions. You’re doing them a favor essentially!
