Twitter is a great platform for zealing out the blogging passion and its greatness doesn’t end on “just tweeting “ tag . Twitter taken as a whole has great hidden benefits not all persons are able to lurk for . But there’s a great treasure hidden in twitter for the bloggers – The Treasure of Blog Topic Ideas .
There is some phase of time when all bloggers face writer’s block and generating content at that time seems like a hercule’s task . With no post ideas in mind, a blank mind leads to delay in posts and indeed downfall in rankings for not updating the blog. But Twitter has a sure solution to this problem . This isn’t a tutorial, not a trick but just simple steps to generate hundreds of post ideas in a second. One of the most common problem which most of Bloggers find at times is finding great blog topics ideas and being trapped there, is bad for your growth and for Blogs. There are many ways like Feed reading, Facebook which can easily be used to create a list of interesting topics for your next blog post, but today we are looking into Twitter approach to use it as Blog topics ideas generator.
The #tags Way to Generate Blog Topic Ideas
The #tags are inserted by twitter users with respect to their tweet. If a twitter user tweets about automobiles, he uses the suitable Twitter hashtag preferring the one which is more popular and trending. Go through the trending hashtags on twitter and note down the ones which are related to your niche. But that’s not it analyse what people are tweeting about the hashtag suiting the niche. know their problem, start searching and answer it . That’s called KISS (Keep It Simple Silly ) .
The previous step is followed by almost 90% bloggers , but what does a creative blogger do with that hashtag is go for a different view. Look upon the tweets and know which part are people missing about that hashtag , what people are overlooking and what more people don’t know about the keyword in the hashtag .
Suppose , the trending #tag on twitter is Auto Expo 2012 . People and companies are recklessly tweeting about the launches , crowd inside, crowd outside and showcases. Even other blogs would be covering on that . It’s time to show creativeness and think differently with the topic. Go viral and interview few chairman of the companies about their launches and post videos on blog . This would create more interest and would give readers a live video to hear and see rather than gupping the same thing written everywhere. Another great post idea would be adding a live telecast of the Auto Expo in the blog post . Don’t limit the mind to just specifications and details, go viral go creative and there would be tons of blog topic ideas rolling in.
As the hashtags are trending automatically, Google according to the “Freshness Update“ would be refreshing the search results for that keyword quickly and the blog post would catch quick traffic as it is the topic being liked by the people for the moment.
Live Tweet to Generate Blog Topic Ideas
Follow the persons who belong to your niche . Go for atleast a 100 of them and then try this method.
For a live example, I am taking Darren Rowse of Problogger.net . I am a follower of Darren on twitter and go through most of his tweets at the end of the day. Usually, people are very excited about his workshops and eager to know its dates. Darren hasn’t officially announced the date but he did respond via tweet to a query of when is he going to organise a workshop ? Now is the time to start writing and stop thinking. Collect a few things about the previous workshop and notify when the workshop would be held this year with the source from where you to got to know it. This not only ends the thirst of fresh content ideas but also brings viral followers on twitter.
Each day I notice the persons whom I follow tweet about a query on their blog and that is what is to picked up to answer. The persons in niche would surely be blogging around the niche and that gets you all the latest buzz from the niche thus generating tons of posting ideas .
