What To Do When You Run Out of Blog Ideas

Business blogging is a great way to increase your visibility and drive traffic to your website, but one common problem is what if you run out of blog ideas? You might already have a blog that is running for years, and everything is all good. You are driving traffic from search engines until one day you realise you don’t know what else to write about.

Since you already have written about almost every topic you can think of, planning the next one can be difficult. So in this blog, we will discuss all the things that you can do if you run out of ideas for your next post.

1. Find trending keywords.

There are free SEO tools online that allow you to know the trending topics in your target market right now. With these tools, you will be able to find more topics resulting in the continuous flow of posts in your blog.

2. Think outside of the box.

Creativity will allow you to come up with more blog topics. The good thing is by being more creative, you can expect relatively engaging posts that can attract more views.

3. Learn to research.

Never underestimate the value of research. You might be thinking that you have already done it all, but try to dig deeper into the research, you might find the next topic that you might want to write. Topics evolve daily, and you’ll never run out of choices.

4. Classify ideas according to potential traffic that they can drive.

Now you’ve come up with a list of ideas, next you’ll need to weigh in your options based on the potential traffic they can drive to your website. Always know if that specific idea is worth the time and effort to write about.

5. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Even though your blog has a specific niche, don’t be afraid to tackle topics that are outside your niche. You can do it sometimes while you are still thinking of the next niche-related topic that you will write.


It can be frustrating at first when you run out of blog topics but try doing the things we suggested above, continue to be creative, you’ll get your creative juices flowing again. You can also contact us for a chat and see how we might be able to help you with your blog.
