Blog topic generator. Easy and free ways to find blog ideas.

Let me guess; you are running out of content ideas for your blog, and you need a blog topic generator that will fill your content marketing calendar ASAP!

Well, I've got you covered because I’ve been there. I know how it feels when you can’t seem to find a blog post idea. It sucks right?

It is natural as a blogger and writer to face writer’s block. There are times when your creativity is at its peak, and there are times when your mind goes blank, and you can’t even write one sentence.

The only way to make out of a writer's block is to have a blog topic generators in place. 

When I started my blog, I thought it would be a breeze. I had a full bucket list of ideas to write on my blog. My mind was exploding with new and exciting topics.

However, along the way, I went blank and couldn't write. I hated those days and figured it out maybe this is something faced by many bloggers.

I tried and tasted the suggestions available out there and found some incredible tools that have helped me in my content planning and marketing.

So let’s get right in and fill your blog with endless blog topics.

How to organize and plan your blog post ideas.

As a blogger, proper organization and planning is key to the success of your business.

Below are a few tips to help you keep a soundtrack of your blog’s posts and ideas. Pick one that works for you and your blog. It is all about convenience.

  • Use Google sheets.

Google sheets are accessible available. You can access Google sheets at any time using either your phone, tab, or a laptop. Topic ideas can strike at any time. Jot them down on google sheets and come back for them later.

Google sheet is also crucial when planning your blog topics. You can write down the keywords you plan to use during your editorial calendar. Also, you can easily share the document with your team members if you work as a team.

  • Create a theme for your blog.

If you are in freelance writing and blogging niche like me, you can assign a week for freelance writing and another week for blogging. If you are in blogging alone, you can split your topics according to your audience’s needs. Having varied content is healthy for your blog.

  • Use Evernote.

It is an excellent tool to capture notes, web pages, and put all your ideas in one place. 

  • Use the WordPress editorial calendar.

Keep track of your blog posts by using the WordPress editorial calendar plugin. With this plugin, you can keep track of when your posts will be posted and help you manage drafts.

#1—Generate Blog topic ideas through google.

Google is a powerful search engine. Every blogger wants to appear on the search results, and the best way to optimize your posts is to check on google.

A quick search on google will give you countless blog post ideas to use on your blog.

Case study.

I keyed in “blog ideas” and on the people also ask section were four more topics.

On clicking on one of the suggested questions, Five more questions on that section popped up as you can see below.

Pick the keywords you see and use a keyword tool like ubersuggest to analyze them.

#2—Generate blog post Ideas through Reddit.

Savvy content marketers know how vital Reddit can be when it comes to creating content.

Reddit is a discussion forum for people to learn and interact. There are several subreddits for a specific topic.

An example of subreddit is r/Bloggers, where bloggers discuss everything about blogging.

The home page of the subreddit is where you will get all the content ideas and blog post ideas.

Below is an example of blog post ideas from Reddit.

Pick those questions and analyze them using a keyword tool.

Here is another example from r/self-published writers.

There are 17 blog topics on the front page alone for someone in self-publishing niche.

The best thing about Reddit is that if you come back and comment on those questions and link back to the relevant post in your blog, you will get traffic-especially if the topic has more upvotes and comments.

 #3—Find blog topic through quora.

Quora stands for question or answer. It is either you ask a question, or you answer a question.

With that in my mind, you can imagine the number of queries on Quora.

Just like Reddit, questions on quora are based on a topic. Search for blog topic ideas using your niche title.

If you are in blogging, you can search the term blogging, and you will be amazed by the number of questions asked on that topic.

Find blog topics on quora

You can also follow other issues on quora related to blogging and get a grasp of the issues asked. The topics are on the right side, as you can see below.

If you come back and answer these questions referencing your blog post, chances are you will get traffic from quora. When your answer receives a high number of upvotes, mods will turn your link to a Do-follow-you know what that means to SEO.

Pro-tip.

Write in-depth answers that give value to the reader. Did you know that Google ranks answers or questions on Quora? Your answer might get ranked, and that is a plus to your blog traffic. 

#4—Find blog ideas through facebook

You are on Facebook all day. Why don’t you pick blog topic ideas instead of scrolling through aimlessly?

Embrace Facebook as a marketing tool for your blogging business.

There are many facebook groups and pages related to your business you can join.

Analyze questions asked in these groups and pages. You will get real-time questions from real people, and it will give you an idea of what your typical audience needs.

Have a look at how you can decode blog post ideas on facebook.

#5—Find blog post ideas through competitors blog.

Another excellent way to generate blog topic ideas is to see other blogs in your niche.

Analyze the type of posts they do and see if they are a good fit for your blog.

However, you should not copy how they do their content. Instead, use the ideas from their site to create your topics from a different angle. You don’t want copyright issues.

Another way is to check their comment section and the types of comments left by their audience. 

#6—Check out the comments on your blog for blog post ideas.

Do you pay close attention to comments on your blog? Comments are super helpful in knowing what your audience needs.

Go back to your blog posts comments and see the types of questions asked. Blog on these questions from a different angle and your audience will thank you.

Here is an example of a topic generated from comments on my blog.

#7—Find blog post ideas on answer the public

You are missing it out if you're not using answer the public tool. ATP is a visual keyword research software.

By entering the keyword in their search bar, and you will get questions in a matter of seconds.

The results are different forms from how, when, why, which, are, to can. Also, the questions come in terms of prepositions, alphabetical order, and comparisons.

One keyword alone can find your blog topic ideas to cover a whole year.

#8—Use ubersuggest to find content ideas.

I love ubersuggest by Nail Patel. It is a user-friendly and straightforward keyword research tool that offers more than just keyword research.

With this tool, you can get domain overview, top SEO pages, Keyword ideas, content ideas, and data on backlinks.

Here is how to generate blog post ideas on ubersuggest. Type in your keyword in the search bar as you can see.

#9—Use keywords everywhere to find blog content ideas.

Keywords everywhere is another excellent tool that can help you come up with blog topic ideas.

You can add it to your chrome browser as an extension. Every time you query google, the extension plucks more related questions.

With keywords everywhere, you will be able to see the search volume, click-through rate, and the competition of a specific keyword.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
