The main problem which bloggers face to please their loyal readers is selecting topics for the blog post.

But, there are a few factors which you must consider before choosing a topic for your blog:
How to Select Topic for Next Blog Post?
You must be confident that what you are writing is good and you are totally satisfied with your article. If you are confident and have knowledge about any specific topic then you can surely give your best to that article. Ask yourself for which topics you get the best response from readers? I am sure the answer would be the topics in which you are interested and confident.
This is the next part for choosing a topic. Doing research before writing any article is very important. Your readers are smart enough, they know that you are providing the right information or not. Thus, choose only those topics which interest you and you can research on that topic.
If you want to write articles for readers then you need to choose topics on which you have excellent knowledge. Just choosing topics from other blogs and rewriting won’t work. You need to reply to your readers queries and thus it is important that instead of rewriting an article, try to get knowledge about that topic.
Experience always provides a personal touch to your article. If you have come across any good or bad experience in your blogging career then share it with your readers. Choose a topic which can help you to share your experience with readers. Readers love to read other’s experience about blogging.
Advice and tips
Try to choose topics which can provide your readers tips and advice relevant to your niche. Choose to write topics which can provide lots of information and keep it simple. It would be better if you divide your topic in 2 or 3 different articles and interlink all those articles. This will give you 2-3 different topics to write and your readers will get all tips and advice about that particular topic.

Confidence is very important in writting content but knowledg and skills will strengthen confidence. Thankyou for the nice post.
I use several tools like Google News, Twitter(with real time search on specific keywords), Digg and StumbleUpon(a few genres here too)
They had been fruitful to me until now. Should expand my base and move on to more methods.

One should be confident enough to write articles for his readers. If we are experienced in a field say web designing and development then we should start a blog on this topic only as we will be able to write more quality articles on this topic.
Yeah Simran, Thanks for your insight.
researching is a very important aspect…i have seen many bloggers who have many ideas but they could not write a great post because they did not researched on its related things
Agree with you Tushar. If we write article without research , it would surely be a mess.
