Hi friends! Recently I was trying to find blog post ideas but wasn’t finding anything interesting to my blog niche so I decided to compile an easy list that I can use in future to quickly come up with the topic suggestions. So I just thought of sharing the list here so other’s can get benefits from it because I know almost every blogger (especially newbie like me) faces the problem of finding new blog post ideas. I am also a newbie blogger and trust me I am also facing this problem because of the lack of time for research.

I am sure I would be able to write more good content on useful topics for this blog with the help of these resources and hopefully, this post would be useful for you guys as well. Since it is a beginner’s guide I have searched the best and easiest ways that do not take much time and still are effective. Let’s get started!

Easy ways to find trending blog post ideas

1. Use Quora to find trending questions

Quora is one of the famous Question & Answer sites where thousands of questions have been asked on daily basis. You can ask the question or just use their search tool to find the right topic for your next blog post. Just type your blog niche or a keyword on which you want to write a post and you would probably find the appropriate topic from right there. Easy and quick! Right?

2. Stalk influential bloggers

It might be the best way to get your topic idea in no time. If you have just started out writing blog then you must have been reading some influential bloggers in your niche. I certainly do!! They regularly post content on their blogs and that’s the reason they are famous and others follow them. So just have a look at their recent posts and you can effortlessly find the topic suggestions.

3. Browse Reddit

Reddit is a famous site where you can find news about almost all kinds of topics and people discuss their personal views on those stories. So you can probably come up with an entire blog post idea from a Reddit story. Some of the comments can be way too lengthy that might give you more content ideas. So eventually you get to know the perspective from different individuals which give you more insights regarding the topic.
Last words- don’t overlook the power of Reddit!!

4. Get blog topic ideas from Google auto-suggestion feature

Google’s auto-suggestion feature can be your best friend when you are running out of blog topic ideas. It works great if you have certain keywords in mind to write upon. If you have some keywords then just type in your keyword in Google search bar and you will get lots of ideas from Google autosuggestion feature.

5. Look into YouTube

YouTube is just not a video sharing platform from Google but it is also one of the popular search engines for millions of people out there. You should not overlook YouTube when it comes to finding blog post ideas. Just have a look at the popular videos in your blog niche and surely it is going to help you in a great way.

6. Explore Buzzsumo

If you are extremely new to the blogging world (just like me) then I am sure this site is going to help you a lot. Folks, I am just so obsessed with it. Go to buzzsumo.com and type in your blog niche (for example SEO, Blogging, Tech news etc) and there will be a list of trending posts related to your niche. This list also shows the user engagement on various social media platforms so you can find out a topic in which your readers might be interested. You can use various filters too for your search.

7. Google Trends

As the name suggests it is a product from Google and it helps with finding trending content. It is quite a famous option for getting latest interesting topic suggestions that are recently clicking on people’s mind. You can completely customize your search to localize it.

8. WikiHow

Most of the people search their problems in form of questions and this is where you can get ideas from WikiHow. There is content on almost every topic on WikiHow and if you are lacking the ideas for the blog then just have a sneak peek into WikiHow.com. It will be insanely helpful for you.

9. Explore top stories at AllTop.com

This site showcases the popular stories from different online sources which can be an extremely handy tool as you can have a look at the stories from the best sources at just one place.

10. Explore social media

The social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and even Pinterest can help you keep an eye on trending topics. So start following influential people or blogs on your social media accounts and whenever you find an interesting topic from them note it down for your future posts.

11. Use Google Keyword Planner

This can also be a handy tool to find a topic for your blog. But you must have two or three keywords in mind to search for your topic idea.

12. StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon is my recent favorite website to get blog post ideas. Just follow the topics related to your blog and you will come across loads of recent topics from relative sites. The best thing is that you need not leave StumbleUpon to explore other sites. Just try it once, you would love it.

Last words- You really needn’t paying a single penny to get topic suggestions for your blogs. All you need is to have some time to explore these sites and you will surely get tons of ideas (maybe for a month’s content). I have mentioned the sources that can be used to gather topics in less than 10 minutes. Hope you find it helpful.
