How to Keep your Blog Fresh

creating fresh and new blog contentIf you have been blogging regularly, then you have noticed two things. It gets both easier and harder every day! Writing becomes less of a chore, thanks to the practice you’re getting, but finding a new topic keeps getting harder.

I know the feeling, because I blog… a lot! So I wanted to let you in on one big tip I used to keep my fingers moving quickly across my keyboard.

Recently, I wrote about not using Reddit marketing in your marketing campaign. However, I gave one exception ... that Reddit be used as a research tool. Nearly every day, I graze through the Sub-Reddit /r/DigitalMarketing/, looking for the trending topics in my field. This is where I get many of my best blogging ideas.

To show you what I mean, let’s pretend you are writing a blog about plumbing. After typing the word “plumbing” into the search bar on Reddit's homepage, a list of results appear. To save time, the results are narrowed to show only results from the Sub-Reddit R/DIY.

The first post is too broad, "Question: What is the cheapest and most efficient way of building your own house/cottage?," but the second post, “Dual kitchen sink with garbage-disposal is draining very slowly. Details and pictures in the info. [Help],” happens to be perfect.

While already self-explanatory, clicking through the post can give you a variety of topics on plumbing to blog about. Namely, what is the “gladiator helmet thing,” snaking a drain, and how you have dealt with this in your business.

I still believe Reddit shouldn't be your marketing platform if you don’t know it intimately, but when it comes to keeping your blog fresh, it sure is hard to beat!
