7 Blog Post Ideas That Will Make Your Blog “HOT HOT HOT”!!!

by Gordon Haber


1. Run a contest. Offer entrants a $1000 prize for an essay on a topic of your choice. Charge $10 per entry. Instead of paying the winner, use the money to invest in a redesign of your blog.

2. Review stuff. Everybody loves opinions! Post reviews of stuff you use every day, like your vibrator.

3. Start a conspiracy theory. Here’s a few ideas:

  • The Jews control Dollywood
  • Viral posts give you actual viruses
  • Vaccinations make kids artistic
  • Crap circles
  • Flouride in the water system is secretly improving your dental health

4. Stream of Consciousness. James Joyce was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. So why take a page from his blog? For instance: “Sometimes I wish I could jump with the wolverines yes I said yes I left your car keys in the egg salad yes.”

5. Personally respond to every single comment, including spam.

6. How-tos. People love to learn how to do stuff! For example, tell your readers how to save money by spaying their cats themselves.

7. Lists! Here’s a few ideas if you’re stuck:
