Typing hand on a laptop.Let’s face it, you know you have a lot that you want to write about in your particular niche, but when it comes time to do a blog post you’ll sometimes draw a blank. Well, I got good news for you. There is a very simple system I came up with to help me in my blog posting ideas.

I own and maintain three blogs in 3 very different subjects. When it comes time to write an article, I don’t just sit down and think, “What am I going to write about today?” No, on the contrary, before I even sit down to write a post, I already have multiple blog post ideas written down in a file on my computer.

That’s the trick, you never know when you’re going to get a super good idea for a blog post. This means you’ll need to have something to take notes with at all times. I use the latest technology with my iPhone, you don’t have to own an iPhone. I believe most phones have some sort of way where you can jot down notes or send an e-mail to yourself. You can even scratch technology all together and keep a blank piece of paper and pen in your pocket to take notes on.

Once you got the blog post idea written on your temporary phone or note pad location, you’ll want to move it to a file on your computer that you can go to when you’re ready to write the blog post. I use Microsoft Outlook to store my blog post ideas. You can also use the simple Notepad application that came with your computer.

So that’s it. I actually came up with the idea to do this blog post a few days ago and wrote it down in my iPhone, and now I’m writing it. So let’s do a quick recap on my simple system for organizing and maintaining your blog post ideas:

  1. Have something to take notes with at all times.
  2. As soon as an idea pops into your head, write it down.
  3. Move the idea from your temporary location, (phone or notepad) to a centralized computer file for all your posts.
  4. When you have time to write a post, just go to that file where all your preconceived blog post ideas are located and pick which one you feel like writing about most at the current moment.
  5. Update your file by deleting the blog posts you’ve already written about.

Pretty simple idea, don’t you think?

This really comes in handy when you have multiple blogs. I get great ideas all the time, if I didn’t write them down, I would probably forget I ever came up with the idea in the first place.

  1. These are all great ideas. To add one more,

    I use my the recorder on my cell phone to store ideas I get at times when I don’t have anything to write on. Then when I get back to my desk, I just hit “replay”. Works like a charm as I always seem to come up with ideas at the most inopportune times – like when I’m sitting in traffic jams.

    BTW: Thank you for the link to my blog. I truly appreciate it.

  3. [...] I mean, your website or blog can only look so good. Believe me, I’ve seen some really impressive looking sites out there and I absolutely love to look at them, but a lot of them lack content in my opinion. As long as your website looks very well organized and well spaced, your content should be the main focus of the site. [...]
