The Absolute Best Way To Come Up With Post Ideas

Today, we’re going to talk about the best way to come up with post ideas. Sometimes you can hit a brick wall in terms of content creation, so I’m going to share a secret and show you how to create amazing posts for your blog.


  • This is the single thing that helps me to create amazing content.
  • Remember that simplifying is the easiest way to get this done.
  • When we start to run out of ideas, we start to overthink things.
  • EXAMPLE: Buzzfeed is the master of this podcast topic. Their lists are very basic topics.
  • Think about things in a simple way that is approachable.
  • When you keep things simple and urgent, you will drive people to your blog.
  • EXAMPLE: Use words like ‘best.’ Also, people are more likely drawn to posts with odd numbers.
