How to generate a never ending supply of blog posts

If you’re suffering from writer’s block or don’t know what to write about or how to research content for your next blog post, this guide will help you. There are just about 10 basic content-types or patterns around which weblog articles are written these days, and by creatively combining them with your subject matter expertise or your knowledge of hobbies, crafts or something else, you can potentially end up with a never ending or infinite supply of blog posts throughout the year!

  1. The 10 basic content-types.
  2. Your Interests, Hobbies and Subject Matter Expertise.
  3. Combine the 1 and 2!
  4. Static and Dynamic Post Ideas.

If this sounds very simple to you, that’s because it really is. Writing isn’t a rocket science, all you need is a little organization and you need to keep some time aside for it, and you need to keep practicing it until you gain perfection like any other art. Once you start getting into the “zone”, writing will feel as natural to you as photosynthesis!

The 10 content-types

Your Interests, Hobbies and Subject Matter Expertise

These can be almost anything but generally fall in the following broad categories:

Combine the 1 and 2!

Now, the real magic happens when you apply the basic content types to your knowledge or what you already happen to know! For example, do you shop a lot? You can then write a comparison post on say, Walmart vs Tesco or Big Bazaar vs Reliance Mart! If you’re a Python engineer, Flask vs Django is the ideal post in that case. And how about Veganism vs Vegetarianism! The possibilities of doing this are almost infinite!

Static and Dynamic Post Ideas.

The above process of creatively combining your knowledge with basic content types will give you what is called static posts. They’re called as such because the content is mostly static in nature (though their relevance will progressively get lower with time), and hence such posts can be planned in advance and organized using what is popularly called blogging calendar.

Now, because of how the Internet works, you’re only allowed to share a couple of posts each day on social media platforms at most, so you must plan your content accordingly. Writer’s muse typically doesn’t work evenly, they come and go in leaps and bounds. But you can’t afford to don’t interact at all for a week and then dump all articles at once on Twitter, that will most likely flag you as a spammer! What bloggers typically do is they write their drafts in advance (leaps and bounds creativity!) and then schedule to publish them evenly.

Apart from these static posts which you can plan in advance, you can also write a dynamic post which can be written and published any time. Some big event took place in your field all of a sudden, yesterday? You’ll have a lot to say about that topic, so you can come up with a new post and publish it immediately.

Your content strategy should involve publishing a mix of both static and dynamic posts frequently. Having only dynamic posts won’t give you much content at all because there will be only so much happening in your given field every day. On the other hand, having static posts only will make your blogging process feel more monotonous and less creative. So, having a mix of both is a good ideal.
