Welcome back to another fun day of learning great blogging ideas!

Monday we learned all about using keywords in Part 1 of Writing Great Content - 5 Awesome Blogging Ideas.

Yesterday we learned about creating "how to" articles in Writing Great Content - 5 Awesome Blogging Ideas Part 2.

Now let's get started with....

3. Media -

First, let's look at the definition of the word media -

"The means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely."

So now that we understand what we are looking for, here are some new ideas for blogging:
  • Check out your local paper for any great stories to share that have to do with the business you are in.

    Example - You sell pepper spray and the local government is trying to get them banned. Is this a good idea or a bad idea?
     
  • Any new books that have come out related to your industry? Review and share your thoughts.

    Example - You sell sports memorabilia and Peyton Manning just came out with a biography.
     
  • Watch any TV shows that show off one of your products? Discuss and brag about it!

    Example - You sell quilting supplies and Fons and Porter show off this awesome new iron.
     
  • Find a magazine article that your customers are likely to enjoy? Discuss that article on your blog.

    Example - You sell manly toys like ammo; grab a magazine like Field and Stream. You will have tons of great topics to discuss!
     
  •  Found another blog that your readers might enjoy? Share the blog and explain why you love it so much.

    Example - You sell items for children, find some really great Mommy Blogs and tell your readers why you love them.
     
  • Check Google Trends for interesting tidbits and news that people are searching for. Since my Golden Retriever is STILL next to me wanting love, let's use that pet store again as an example.

    Example - I go to Google Trends and enter the word dog. Then I click on more news reports. I get a great article about a dog surviving 53 days in the desert. GREAT story for readers. It has the ohhhh and ahhhh factor they love.
Now I know you just thought of 3 or more new ideas for a blog.

QUICK

Find a piece of paper and write them all down. Now find a little box and put those ideas inside the box. Next time you get stuck and need a great idea, reach inside your magic box of ideas and pull out the next great idea!

I'll be back tomorrow with Part 4 :)
