What Effective Blogging Techniques That I Use For Content
Depending on what type of blog you have, there are fairly different ways to find content for them. Here I want to go over some of these effective blogging techniques you should try when finding content. There are basically two type of blogs, general and niche, general blogs are just that…a blog on general information, this can be of any topic or subject which is usually easy to find content for. But a niche blog can be even more difficult to provide content for. A niche blog is a blog that contains content about a specific subject or topic, whether it being informative, persuasive, or opinionated. For example, this is a niche blog where I generally write about various internet marketing and effective blogging techniques and strategies that you may find useful in building your business. Having effective blogging techniques for a niche blog is critical in providing valuable content that others will find interesting. Here are a few ways you can find content for your niche blog and provide value to your readers at the same time.

While you don’t want to copy anyone’s intellectual property, you want to be able to get some great talking points from the article in writing your own article, in your own words.PLR articles are another great way to find valuable ideas for content by visiting sites such as Ezine Articles.
- Read others niche-related content offline – Take it from me, this is one of the best ways to get really good content for your blog. Being that I have a niche blog on internet/network marketing, I get really great article ideas from such magazines as Entrepreneur, Money, and other print magazines that are really effective in finding content for your blog, whether general or niche.
- What’s Trending – Another effective blogging technique that works for finding content is finding out what’s trending on Google and Yahoo. Google Trends is a really great way to find information for either a general or niche blog. If you go to the homepage of Yahoo, it tells you what is currently trending on the upper right hand corner of the page. This is really a great way to ride what’s being searched online.

These are four effective blogging techniques that I use to find content for my blog. Along with this niche blog, I do have a general purpose blog and in my opinion, writing for a niche blog is much more challenging. But the main thing about blogging period is having the ‘love’ and the knowledge of a certain subject that you find interesting in writing about. If you’re missing either one of those attributes, don’t plan on generating traffic to your content and even worse, expect to generate leads from your blog if your blogging to make money online.
