Do you sit in front of computer to write an article and don’t come up with any content idea? Ever had trouble coming up with a topic to write on at very important situations like when you have got a back link from a popular blog?

What I’m letting you know in this article will surely help you in coming up with content ideas easily without thinking for a lot of time. It’s not a guarantee. But you will see results if you follow all the 3 ways I’m listing below. People read so many books regarding making money online. But most of them don’t earn money. The fault is not with the book (in most cases). After all, the same method has worked for the author. You have to take action. Reading alone will take you nowhere. You have to plan and take action. The three ways I’m showing you below will work for you (it has worked for me) if you take action.

Without further ado, let me take you to the 3 surefire ways to get tons of content ideas.

1. Join Forums
Forums are a treasure for blog post ideas. There are people asking questions every day. People ask new questions every hour in popular forums. People come with lots of problems and they come for help to the forums. If someone has a question, surely there are many more people with the same question. Join the forums in your niche. Go to google and search for “your niche forum” without quotes. Join the forums where there is high activity level. Find questions that you can answer in your blog. Write a detailed blog post answering that question. But forums can get quiet addictive. Make sure you don’t spend a lot of time in forums.

2. Subscribe To Blogs And Social Sites
In almost any niche, you can find blogs that are running successfully. Subscribe to these blogs. I suggest you to subscribe to the smaller blogs too. Sometimes the smaller and less popular blogs are the ones that come up with great content. Keep an eye on the blogs on your niche and make sure you don’t miss any post. If someone is writing on “how to effective do article marketing”, you can develop your own method of making article marketing effective and write a post. Social sites like stumbleupon, digg etc are also great places to find content ideas.

3. Keep An Eye On The Comments Of Other Blogs
When you read blog posts on other blogs, don’t forget to check the comments section. People ask questions most of the times. The popular blogs get a lot of questions in the comments section. But due to the huge number of questions asked everyday, the blog author doesn’t write blog posts answering all the questions. But you can do that. Take a note of the questions that are repeatedly asked in the comments of other blogs. Create a file with all these questions and whenever you are struggling to get content ideas, look at the questions in the file and try answering some of them in your blog.

I’m sure if you follow all these steps, you will have a lot of topics to write on. Again, let me tell you it’s not a guarantee. It has worked for me really well. If you take action, you will see results. What is your best way for getting new content ideas? Please share it in the comments.

1 Key to Blogging Happiness and Success

Published

on

In today’s heavily charged political climate you may want to debate, outright fight or criticize people on social media.

Maybe the news seems to magically draw you in to negative, toxic headlines.

I have a little secret that keeps me happy most of the time.

Goodness knows following this secret promoted my blogging success.

The secret: I see fighting as fear so I do not get caught up in kicking a dog when it’s down.

This is code for: I largely do not engage fearful, unhappy folks. If I do engage said folks, rest assured the chats last for a few seconds, if that.

Why Doing this Makes You a Happy and Successful Blogger

Avoiding unhappy people automatically makes you happier because nature abhors a vacuum. Ignore fear. Ignore unhappiness. Loving, happy people move into your life since love is the opposite of fear and happiness is the opposite of unhappiness. Many of these happy, successful people will be clients, customers and rocking bloggers who promote you and endorse you.

Ignoring folks having a moment, or perhaps, having a tough life just allows them to find their balance on their own. You are a leader, not a savior.

If a trusted friend is going through a difficult time you can be a sounding board for a bit. No worries there. But even this sounding board stage has its limits and you eventually need to move on to allow these folks to find clarity and peace on their own. This benefits both parties.

Happiness and Success Is an Energy Thing

Folks wonder why I smile in most of my travel pictures. I smile because I am predominantly happy. I am predominantly happy because I see fighting as fear, and I do not kick a dog when it’s down, meaning I do not engage, chat with or try to convince fear-filled, fighting folks on social media, through my blog and through my email.

I do this because I have compassion for these fear-filled folks. Especially for fear-filled folks who fight about politics, religion or whatever topic these individuals are unclear on.

Typically, most of these fear-filled, unclear folks find other fear-filled, unclear folks to complain to, and they all agree in their fear and lack of clarity, and disguise their fear as passion or a love of their political party, or whatever sounds good, to soothe their bruised egos, and their unclear, fear-filled minds. Either way, the dog is down, and since I was once in the same position is life, I ain’t kicking.

Following this practice has dramatically raised my energy from fear to love. Raising my predominant vibe from fear to love has helped me be in harmony with the world, which made me:

  • generous
  • prolific
  • helpful
  • an energetic networker

Taking on these qualities accelerated my blogging success and grew my happiness, because happy, successful bloggers are generous, prolific, helpful and energetic networkers.

But you need to move up the energetic ladder to embody these traits and that involves leaving those fear-filled, unclear folks near the bottom of the ladder. Even if they appear to be successful, blogging business wise, rest assured that their political or religious fight is fear, manifest.

You can still be connected with them and chat casually here and there about blogging or other topics where they vibe love, not fear, but you will be leaving many of these folks behind until they face, embrace and release their deeper fears, to vibe more from love and clarity, so they can join you on higher rungs of the energetic ladder.

Surround Yourself with Loving, Generous Bloggers

Loving, kind, generous bloggers promote your blogging success by showing you the way.

These folks also lift your spirits, making you a happier blogger.

Seek them out. Promote successful bloggers. Comment on their blogs.

Be happier, healthier and wealthier.

1 of My Secrets to Being Kinda Prolific

Published

on

I have written hundreds of guest posts for this blog.

I have written about 1000 on Blogging From Paradise between posts and travel pages.

A few moments ago I checked my DA for a sponsored post opportunity. The business owner wanted to know blog domain authority before deciding to place a sponsored post on the blog.

Blogging From Paradise has a DA of 48 and 22,457 external links in.

Not super shabby.

I am kinda prolific.

If you want to publish helpful content frequently, just run with my most basic of tips.

Do not wait around for folks to read your content, comment on your content and share your content before writing your next blog post or guest post.

Do not wait to create.

Do Not Wait to Create

The old me – and most bloggers – became highly attached to any single piece of content I created because I feared the content would not register enough shares, comments, page views and sales. Fear drove me to share this piece of content in many places to boost my stats. All well and good but because fear drove me, I resisted my prolific nature, allowing worry and lack to goad me to do stuff that led to me being the farthest thing from prolific.

Eventually, I observed how bloggers who seemed to be in 10,000,000 places at once simply prolifically created a high volume of helpful blog posts, guest posts and videos. Success found these folks because they did not wait around for readers to check out their blog posts. Said bloggers moved on to writing and publishing their next blog post.

Acting abundantly – not allowing their fears to eat into their prolific nature – promoted these blogger’s success as they created generously, publishing a high volume of content across multiple platforms.

I finally learned of this secret and used it effectively when I chose NOT to wait to create.

Now I publish 3 posts daily on Blogging From Paradise. I also publish the odd guest post from time to time. My success accelerated and my online presence expanded when I decided not to get attached much at all to any one blog post, because the next blog post called me.

No sense waiting around for folks to read my stuff because they simply will read at their own leisure. My job is to keep creating helpful content to help readers build successful blogs. As I move in this direction, everything keeps expanding for me.

All because I chose not to wait to create.

Being Prolific Impacts Folks

Peep this tweet from my friend Corey Hinde of The Good Oil Marketing:

I am humbled by such kind words from an established, super successful internet marketer. This is pretty much what happens when you are prolific; you impact folks in a positive way, and you also expand your reach and help more folks, all because you refuse to hold back.

Tips to Be Prolific

  • Blog mainly for the fun of blogging
  • Nudge yourself out of your comfort zone daily
  • Surround yourself with prolific bloggers to feast on their creative energy
  • Do not wait to create
  • Beware getting attached to any one piece of content; promote posts freely across a wide range of channels but look toward the next blog post, guest post or video to create, in order to become incredibly prolific.

Guys; this journey gets a little uncomfortable at times but if you love fun and freedom more than you fear doing some uncomfortable things you will become a highly prolific blogger.

How to Get Your Blogging Mojo Going if You Feel Hopelessly Stuck

Published

on

I lose blogging momentum sometimes.

You may be in the same boat, being human and all.

But if you regularly find yourself saying “I need to get serious about building my blog” over the course of years it is time to own this fact: you need to get your blogging mojo going before you become permanently stuck in a blogging rut.

I was rut-stuck here and there for many years, on and off. Maybe I didn’t quit blogging totally but I’d start blogging, then stop, and continue this process for weeks on end. Not good.

You can find your blogging mojo and get unstuck by following these blogging tips.

1: Pick a Dream that Makes You Feel Alive

I am led by my dreams, not pushed by problems, because I picked a big old dream a while back. I wanted to circle the globe. Bingo!

Since I wanted to travel the world more than I feared doing uncomfortable, blogging-building things, I built a rocking blog and kept on moving, keeping my blogging mojo going.

What is your dream? Figure it out. Hold it tight.

If you need inspiration watch my video from New Zealand. I filmed this one at Mount Cook a few months ago.

2: Feel Fears Fueling Your Struggles

Some folks believe they lack motivation to blog. Others feel they are lazy. But at the end of the day, if you are not acting, you are afraid of something or someone.

Laziness is fear manifest. So find your fears, by shutting a door and sitting in a quiet room, and if you feel the deep fears you purge the energies and proceed from an inspired, loving, persistent, energized space.

I kept putting off writing an eBook for many years. Turns out I was not lazy; I just feared nobody would buy the eBook because I saw myself as a loser who knew little. I also feared people would criticize me. But I went forward and wrote my first eBook to get out of my fear-rut and to keep on moving.

Some of my eBooks do not sell as much as others and people sometimes post negative reviews of my eBooks but since I do not fear these outcomes, neither have any power over me. I just keep expanding my success, helping folks and befriending blogging pros because I move forward, unburdened by many blogging fears I faced, embraced and released.

3: Study Persistently Energized Bloggers

I am no Tony Robbins but blog persistently from an energized space.

Each day I:

  • do 1 hour of deep yin yoga
  • exercise for 1 hour
  • usually take an icy cold shower
  • focus on having fun with my blog versus attaching to money or traffic outcomes

I have written thousands of guest posts, over 10,000 blog posts (old and new blogs combined) and I have also written over 100 eBooks. Toss in the thousands of videos I created over many YouTube channels (since closed) and you see I am a pretty prolific dude. An energized, prolific dude at that.

You’d be wise to see how I go about my energy ritual daily to take a few pointers. Consider deep yin yoga to open up your body, to open your mind and to form the habit of being comfortable with being uncomfortable. Maybe meditating daily opens your awareness. Exercise is definitely a must, every single day.

Circulating your energy freely moves you from being fear-based, lazy and sluggish to being love-based, energized and prolific. I was once pretty dang lazy before I dove deep into energy work.

Wrapping it Up

Keep at it guys. I know this blogging journey feels scary sometimes but if you grab the right blogging resources and follow the above tips you will avoid common blogging ruts that appear to cripple most bloggers.
