Coming Up with Blog Post Ideas

Popular blogs are updated frequently, and that means they always include fresh content. Your posts should be current, and your content should be unique—no one wants to read a stale blog. That doesn’t mean you have to be the only person who writes a blog post about a specific topic, but it does mean your take on that topic should be uniquely yours. In other words, you need to add value to the existing online conversation about that subject. This applies to writing your blog overall as well as writing individual blog posts.
 
WordPress gives you the tools you need to become a web publisher, but it’s up to you to create the content that attracts and retains readers.
