Someone on Quora just asked for their next blog post topic for their relationship blog. Who did they ask? People from the blogging tips category.
Think that through. Bloggers asking people interested in blogging tips about relationships topics is one huge mistake. Drilling deeper, bloggers asking strangers on a free Q and A site marks an even bigger problem. You have no readers to ask? Bad news. Even worse? Having readers to ask for topic ideas and ignoring these trusted folks because you seem completely ignorant to the fact that you have readers in the first place. Not seeing your riches and discounting blog followers who give you all you need in terms of blog topic ideas is a damaging, success-strangling error made by most bloggers. Think of the Quora dude or dudette; asking strangers outside of your niche for blog post topic ideas seems like a grave mistake to me because these folks are strangers, first off, and secondly, completely interested in blogging tips without a care in the world about relationships.
Can you see why I strongly suggest you buy my blogging course? Being completely lost blogging-wise guarantees your failure but finding the way by educating yourself accelerates your blogging success. Blogging gets easier – even if it’s uncomfortable – when you buy proven resources from successful bloggers and follow their advice. If you ignore advice from pros, you find yourself asking strangers for blog post ideas, said strangers being 100% not interested in your niche. How much time do you think this blogger wastes asking non-targeted strangers for blog post topic ideas? Oodles of time, methinks. Imagine if said blogger spent that time asking their readers for blog post ideas and publishing posts based on those ideas? Success would find said blogger.
Or imagine if said blogger trawled top blogs in their niche, or, niche-specific boards, if the blogger had zero readers? Imagine how much time and energy they would save by simply going to the source of helpful content and feedback from their niche? Blogging really is simple if you think clearly and blogging gets complex if chaos rules your mind. Of course the blogging journey feels scary at times but we are not dealing with rocket science or brain surgery. Follow simple strategies, increase your emotional intelligence and succeed, over the long haul. But you need to address this big blogging problem of NOT asking your readers for blog post ideas or NOT observing readers interested in your niche, for blog post ideas, to make blogging simple and to accelerate your blogging success.
I scan the blogging tips category on Quora or observe my readers before I write a blog post or guest post because feedback, questions, problems and struggles shared by bloggers fuels the blogging tips niche. I write helpful blogging tips themed content for bloggers who tell me what blogging tips they need. Doesn’t that make perfect sense? Listen to folks who need blogging tips. Publish blog posts filled with blogging tips designed to solve their problems. Easy peasy. Plus you have an endless supply of blog post ideas the moment you decide to develop the skill of observing bloggers patiently, closely and compassionately, to solve their problems and to accelerate their success. Why? Every blogger screams blog post ideas left and right if you simply quiet your mind and learn to observe how these individuals think, feel and act.
