If you have already launched a blog or are considering whether to start one, I am sure you have asked the #1 question.  That question is, “What do I write about?”
The hardest part of writing a blog is always deciding what to write about.  This is a very real struggle.  I face it too.  You don’t have to be paralyzed by this challenge.  I am going to show you how to always have plenty of ideas to write about.
The best way to overcome this struggle is to keep a list of blog ideas.  I do this in Evernote.  I have a notebook entitled “blogs”.  Whenever I think of a blog idea, I start a new note and make that idea the title.  I can do this from my computer or my smartphone if I am away from my desk. Then, when I am ready to write, I pick one of these notes and start writing.  This process works for me because I write in Evernote.  However, you could maintain a list of blog ideas in your note system of choice.
Once I started writing my blog, I found that ideas came to me at many different times.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember them later.  Therefore, having a system to record these ideas has been key to my success.
Sometimes, you need some ideas to help get you started.  The following list of possible subjects will help you get the creative juices flowing.
