Blog Checklist: 15 Ideas for Your Next Blog Post

A blog checklist is a valuable tool for new entrepreneurs. Consistent blogging is a key strategy that you need to use to build your new online business. Today's blog post is a blog checklist with 15 ideas that you can use to create engaging, informative, and fun content.  The ideas from the blog checklist will work for whatever specialty area (niche)  you are in. Remember to be creative. Share your ideas with your prospective clients.

1. Take a photo. Share a picture instead of words.

2.  Share a relevant YouTube video.  You can analyze the video in your post.

3. Make a video of your own. People love to see you and hear your voice. This is more engaging than just reading your words.

4. Comment on another blog post on your blog.  For example, if another well known blogger makes a strong statement on a topic, respond to that statement on your blog.

5. Comment on news events. Talk about how the news story relates to your field.

6. Write a “How to” post. Telling your audience how to do a particular thing, i.e. set up a WordPress site or buy a domain name, works very well online.

7. Debunk a myth. Are there common thoughts or beliefs people hold in your industry that simply are not true. If so, write a post showing why it is merely a myth.

8. Tell an entertaining and educational story. What are some turning points in your business career?

9. Create a Q&A post. List some of the common questions that your audience has and what are the answers to the questions. We recently did a Q&A post on starting an online business.

10. Examine a problem. Take a problem that people often get stuck on and go in depth into its causes and solutions.

11. Write a “Top X” list. People love lists.

12. Interview an expert. Post it in audio or video on your blog. Here's a link to an interview with an expert on the Top WordPress Plugins.

13. Review a product. Talk about the benefits and drawbacks. What sets it apart? Would you recommend it?

14. Write about common pitfalls. Talk about mistakes that beginners might unknowingly make.

15. Ramble. Just talk aimlessly and passionately about a topic. Set it aside for a few days. Then go back later to make sure that it is relevant before you post it.


Here are 15 ideas for your blog posts that can help you engage with your prospective clients.  Be creative and have fun as you share your ideas with the word.
