After a regular posting schedule, there comes a time when you are confused about what to write for your next blog post.
Many newbie or regular bloggers are often faced with such a dilemma. So, it is natural and let me assure you that it is nothing to worry about.
What you should really worry about is choosing a wrong or unrelated topic while you are in that confusion.
Avoid Wrong Topic
For example, Let’s suppose that I have a blog on blogging niche and I am posting on it on a regular basis, after some time I am all out of ideas and confused about what to write next; And here is the annoying part, while in that confusion I get distracted from my goal and started writing on fashion or any other topic which is irrelevant. What happens then, I will more likely lose my loyal reader’s interest
Or worst of all I could lose all of my readers.
I hope you get my point because nobody would want to lose his/her readers.
Following are some ways to stick to your niche and find a perfect topic for your next blog post when you get confused
1. Follow Your Passion
Write about what you are passionate. Think of any topic which you like and always inspires you to share your inner thoughts.
You need to ask yourself something, “Is it something you are happy to write about ?” if not then find a topic you are happy writing about it. The topic should be something you love very much and are always curious to learn more about it.
