So you have a blog but have come up dry on what to post. Here’s a list of 10 types of posts that will get your creative juices flowing.
List post. People love lists. Think about the 7 most common, or the 10 hottest, or maybe the 12 best ways to do something. List posts are by far the most popular because people love them.
How-to posts. How-to is one of the most searched terms on the internet. If you create a how-to blog post, expect it to do well.
Case study or review post. These are more in depth and can give great value to your blog readers. Have a case study about someone who did something related to your blog topic. Do a review of a home business or software program. Your readers will appreciate the information.
Problem/solution post. Define a problem and present a solution. This can be combined with other types of posts like lists and how-to.
FAQ or SAQ posts. Strands for Frequently asked Questions and Should Ask Questions. These can be a list type of post with great information.
Research post. Research a topic and write what you discover. It can be a more in depth follow-up of previous posts like lists or FAQ.
Ultimate Guide posts. Making a comprehensive and detailed post on a topic in your niche. Don’t skimp on the information and give more than is expected. Having a bonus section is a plus.
Definition post. There are a lot of terms in some niches that would be unknown to a newbie or visitor to your blog. Making a list of definitions would be helpful and could get a lot of reads.
Series post. Making a new installment on a topic each day for a number of days is a great way to get people to visit your blog on a regular basis.
YouTube cut-up post. Take screen shots of a popular YouTube video, add text comments and explanations. This is a fast way to create stellar content.
I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and makes the blog-o-sphere more interesting.
