Once you learn and understand this method, you can plan out your entire blogging content calendar for the entire year in just about an hours worth of work. And yes, I’m 100% serious.
Are you as excited as I am to get started?
Step 1: Find blog topics to write about
Find your main niche.
It’s important to have a general idea of what you’re going to be blogging about. Not as general as “life”, but something along the lines of business, homeschooling, gardening…you get the idea. And if you’re struggling on what to even categorize your blog into, just stop and think about what you like. Or what problems you can solve for your audience.
Anytime you can write about something that you love as well, that honestly and rawness comes through to your readers and builds a real connection.
Step 2: Understand what topics to write about
List out all the ideas you have about your niche.
Have fun with this. This is for your eyes only and is just a rough draft. Jot them down and let those ideas fly. And once you’ve exhausted the resources in your head. it’s time to head to Pinterest.
Yep, you read that right. You can get a ton of great blog topic ideas by heading over to Pinterest. All you need to do is type your niche in the search bar at the top of Pinterest and you’ve just unlocked an unlimited potential of blog topics.
I use the example of beauty masks in the video, but in the image you can see the search results for Whole30. Look at all those topic ideas!
See those little bubbles that pop up underneath the search bar full of words? Those words are gifts from Pinterest letting you know what people are searching for.
What you do with this information is how you will set up topics for your blog. Go through the words and find ones that fit your niche. Once you have the words picked out, it’s time to take those words and add them to a spreadsheet for future use.
Step 3: How to categorize blog topics to write about
Once you use Pinterest to give you amazing keywords, you’ve suddenly found that you have the tools to create your blog menu with ease. And beyond that? You’ve made a killer library full of possible topics and information for your blog. All by just a few simple clicks and steps. (Google likes libraries and categories as well on blogs and they really help with SEO, too)
But…now what? Now that you have your ideas, your words, and your categories, what do you do with all that information moving forward?
Step 4: find Popular topics to write about
Two words. Google it. If you’re wanting to know how to take your topics and turn them into blog posts, Google has already done the work for you.
The Most Important Step
Go on…try it out. Open up a browser and type in your main word about your blog. Whether it be “homeschooling” or “camping”, you’ll notice a small section on Google called “People also asked”. Those questions are where you get great insight and information about what to write blog posts about!
These are blogging gold.
Each one of these questions can be used to write a separate blog post with ease. Simply turn the question into a statement and you’ve got your next blog title as well. See how simple this can be?
And trust me, Google loves online outlets that answer questions. Plus, you can use those questions to offer great opt-ins, branch off of and really build your online audience.
Step 5: Implementing Interesting topics to write about
Once you let Google do all the work for you, all that’s left is to implement what you’ve gathered.
If you happen to come across a question that you don’t know the answer for, ask advice or information from an expert in the field or do your own research to get facts.
The amount of effort that you put into your writing and research will pay off in the end.
Step 6: Plan out your editorial calendar for the year
The more content and blog posts that you write, the more traffic you’ll generate. Starting out, it’s important to write at least one blog post per week. This shows your audience your committed and shows Google that you’re blog is alive. Knowing that you need 52 posts at a minimum for the year may sound like a lot, but with the steps above outlined and detailed and just waiting for you to implement, this won’t be hard for you to accomplish at all.
Plus, the more content that you create, the better chances that you’ll have something really take off that you’ve written, too. And you know what doors that can open, right? The potential to start earning money from your blog! (and even more followers and a larger audience as well)
