      BuzzSumo is AMAZING!! You can see which posts are getting the most shares and create posts around those topics. It is one of my favorite places to get ideas.

    I hadn’t heard of Quora before, thanks for that one. I’m off to set up a blog idea Pinterest board now!

    • admin says:

      Quora is great to see what questions get asked the most. Then you just have to answer those questions in your own way. I use Quora a lot.

  3. Liz says:

    Thanks for the great suggestions! I am new to blogging and am finding it very overwhelming.

    • admin says:

      Don’t let it overwhelm you, Liz. Find a pace that works for you. If you cannot do one new post a day try cutting back. Oh and reach out to others so we can help you out.

  4. Love all this info!! I have done the Google search and the Pinterest searches. I have never heard of BuzzSumo, but I’m going to check it out now. Thanks!

      BuzzSumo is fantastic to see what’s popular in your niche. It’s amazing the ideas you can find there. I keep a running list of blog post ideas and quite a few of those ideas come from BuzzSumo.

    Pinterest and connecting with your audience is key! I’ll have to check out BuzzSumo. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • admin says:

      Pinterest is a treasure trove of information and inspiration for a blog. I love having a place to save my ideas to look at later if I need them. And BuzzSumo… amazing tool to have in your toolbox.

  6. Lara says:

    These are all such great ideas! I usually look to my favorite blogs for ideas, but will definitely start using your suggestions, especially Pinterest! I’m on it all the time, so might as well use it for some inspiration! 🙂

    • admin says:

      I am on Pinterest every day so I decided I’d use to help inspire me to be a better blogger. I use a secret board so it’s separate from everything else and I can easily reference it when I’m in need of some ideas.

  7. So many helpful suggestions here! I’ve never even been to BuzzSumo, but I have it opened in a new tab thanks to you, and will go check it out next 🙂 I love your tip to check out quora as well. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Erin Haugerud says:

    As always – great content here! For BuzzSumo, what type of topics do you key in? For example, my niche is Interior Design so if I were searching most popular blogs, what should I be searching?

    • admin says:

      Thank you, Erin. When I use Buzz Sumo I start with a broad topic to see what comes up so start with something like “interior design”. Once you see what’s popular you can pick a keyword or two from those top post. So if you see the word “farmhouse” come up in an article maybe do a search of “Farmhouse Interior Design”. See what’s popular in that search. It could lead you to do a list post on your favorite Farmhouse decor with a modern flair. Or how to incorporate Farmhouse pieces into your modern/Scandinavian home. I hope that helps… I Did a search for “farmhouse Interior Design” on BuzzSumo and these were just a few ideas I came up with. Mainly because I watched Fixer Upper last night.

  9. Tracy says:

    As a new blogger, this was so helpful!

    • admin says:

      I am so glad it was helpful Tracy. I am fairly new to blogging and these resources have helped me out immensely already. So I had to share with everyone else because it’s always great to have a list of resources when you need them.

  10. I didn’t know there were blog idea resources like that! Very good to keep in mind 🙂

      You’re welcome, Ashley! Anytime I find a great resource I try and share it with everyone. And these have helped me out a lot since I started my blog. I hope they help you just as much.

  13. Great suggestions! I didn’t know what Buzzsumo was! I’ll have to check it out.

    • admin says:

      BuzzSum is amazing!! It’s a great place to get inspiration from. I try and check it once a week to keep my blog ideas list going. This way I can pick and choose a topic from my list.

  14. Johanne says:

    Pinterest is my number one place to go when I need inspiration. But other people’s blog posts help me as well. I never ever steal a subject but it does get me inspired to make my own content.

    • admin says:

      Pinterest is a big source of inspiration. I even save blog post layouts I like and see if they can work for a future post. I love finding inspiration to make my blog more useful and easy to use.

  15. I have yet to run out of blogging ideas. I have only been blogging for 2 years so I know there will come a day where I have no clue what to write about. Most of my inspiration comes from things happening in my life or other posts I see on Pinterest

    • admin says:

      Blogging is not my specialty so I struggle with coming up with content. I am so glad you don’t need these yet… and here’s to hoping you never do. But they are here if you ever should.

  16. Maegan says:

    I didn’t know about a lot of these resources, but I’m so excited to try them out! Pinned!

    • admin says:

      I didn’t know about many of these until I was struggling to find an idea for a post. So I searched and asked around and these are the ones I find work the absolute best. I hope you enjoy exploring them and I hope they give you many ideas.

  17. This post is SO helpful! Thank you!!

  18. Renee says:

    Well this is just the best list ever! Bookmarked so I can keep coming back and I am already checking out BuzzSumo! Never heard of it before but it definitely sounds like something I want to be a part of!

    • admin says:

      BuzzSumo is a little-known gem when it comes to finding what is popular within a niche. I use it all the time to see what my audience is really sharing on social media. It helps to create topics I know they will enjoy.

  19. Kalyn says:

    Definitely adding buzz sumo to my bookmarks right now! Thanks for sharing!

    • admin says:

      BuzzSumo seems to be the one resource most people are going to be using from the list… and I can’t blame them or you. Buzz Sumo is amazing and so helpful when you need to find a topic quickly and that you know people are interested in.

  20. Definitely bookmarking this! This is a great list! Thank you!

    • admin says:

      You’re very welcome. I knew if I struggled then others did as well. So I decided to give everyone my best resources. I hope you get a lot of good stuff from these.

  21. Love this! I find it interesting that you use Pinterest and you have a secret board for blog ideas. Very cool.

    • Misty says:

      I keep it secret because it has a lot of repeat pins in it. If I find a topic of interest I usually save it to my “secret” board and then also save it to a public board. That is way there aren’t a lot of repeat pins. My secret board is also full of many topics, maybe even a stray slow cooker recipe here and there. I try and keep my public boards on topic and organized but my ideas board is a complete mess of pins. LOL. I think most of my topic ideas come from BuzzSumo rather than Pinterest but it’s nice to have a place I can scan to see if there’s something that pops out at me as a good topic I should be covering for you all.

  22. Kelsey says:

    How have I never heard of BuzzSumo?!?! Great tips, thank you for sharing!

    • Misty says:

      Thank you Kelsey! I am trying to remember who first told me about BuzzSumo but I cannot remember. It’s been such a huge help and really should thank them for the tip. Hopefully, it will help you as much as it has helped me.

  23. Kaycee Smith says:

    I have never heard of BuzzZumo and will have to check it out! Thanks for all of the resources.

    • Misty says:

      You’re very welcome. I know if I occasionally struggle to find blog post ideas then others do as well. So I am sharing my favorite places to find inspiration.

  24. Marya says:

    These are GREAT ideas! Off to check out BuzzSumo!

    • Misty says:

      Thank you! I keep BuzzSumo bookmarked on my browser so I can easily get to it. It really is a wonderful resource to have when you need a blog post topic.

  25. Excellent ideas! There are so many times that I have a writer’s block. I can’t think of anything useful. Thank you for coming up with this informative post. I’ve bookmarked it, so every time I am struggling with post ideas, I can come back here and refresh myself.

    • Misty says:

      I am happy to help. I struggle with writer’s block a lot. It’s like as soon as I sit down in front of my computer… my mind goes blank. So I have to keep these resources bookmarked so I can get some ideas.

  26. Heather S says:

    Reading this article couldn’t of come at a better time. Not to mention some of these resources I had never heard of…BuzzSumo. I keep forgetting about Pinterest as a way to drive traffic to my blog, I have always seen it as the place I go to for craft ideas but where are those craft ideas listed on BLOGS!!! Ugh…how did I miss that LOL. So often I struggle with what to write outside of reviews, thank you so much for all the resources and ideas.

    • Misty says:

      I am so happy it came at the right time for you. BuzzSumo seems to be something not many bloggers know about but it amazingly helpful for finding blog post ideas. Pinterest is a favorite for me because I am already on it to help my website traffic so I just save good ideas to a board so if i need an idea I can find it.
