Getting idea is simple! But getting “Right ” idea is not simple ! This is Really Excellent Tip John :)

abhishek April 11, 2013 at 9:14 am

That’s a cool way to get ideas for post and creating a quality post. Discussion with friends and critics works good always

David Wedge April 11, 2013 at 9:21 am

That is very clever John, Speaking as somebody who can go through agonies trying to write content it is also a very good reference point, thanks

Very informative article John.
Sometimes you really “blocked”, it is important to move on!
Thanks for tips ;-)

Great post! Already inspired by the movie characters and comic book characters idea for fitness posts! Also the recycling one is great because I think some older posts were gems, lol but I didn’t have many users on my site back then.thanks!

You know why i like your blog because every time i came to your blog i found something interesting or something which inspired me every time. I am going to follow all of these tips with my new blog soon.. Thanks

Great content is KING, it’s mandatory for blogging for money. If your readers aren’t appreciated what you’re writing, it’s hard to even make a DIME online. Providing more benefits to your readers means everything. I’m still working on this task.

Ps: I like the graphics you had up there John, looks amazing!!!

Robinsh April 11, 2013 at 12:37 pm

Thanks for sharing it’s really a good infographics to help us fueled with ideas to write again and again.

Herman Yudiono April 11, 2013 at 1:48 pm

Hi John,

Recycle looks an easy way to create content. Lol.
Anyway, I like #1, #3, and #21.

Darnell Jackson April 11, 2013 at 4:59 pm

Good topic JC #3 is the best that way you’re always giving your audience what they are asking for.

Andre Somov April 11, 2013 at 5:14 pm

I still manage to get surprised; but by now I should know better that your blog posts are always high quality material!! You don’t just do it as a chore; that’s obvious. You inform, entertain and inspire. Thanks again!

This post was different from most I have read anywhere. I like the visual aspect of it, which will really help those who retain information better through visual observation. I am a reader and can retain a lot of information, but do know some people who learn and remember more through the visual aspect. Well done! :)

Jennifer Vu April 11, 2013 at 9:32 pm

Great infographics, easy to follow but not many of us can do all steps at the same time. I usually use my own outline and stick to it to have compelling content. Thanks, Jen

I love this! But actually this list requires a lot of hard work to do.But of course each bloggers and writers need to find out the way that works the most for them. Because it seems impossible for a blogger to do all these things on his/her own (unless s/he has a team behind). Personally I like most the first parts where you brainstorm ideas for content and use different techniques to come up with different ideas

faisal April 12, 2013 at 5:26 am

Excellent infographic, good stuff.

ferruccio April 12, 2013 at 6:08 am

wonderful, I created a post for the Italian public, thanks

Abhik April 12, 2013 at 6:30 am

My favourites are 8, 22 and then 10.

Sunitha April 12, 2013 at 8:01 am

After see the info graphics i just want to say wow! If we follow one step each day we can write 22 articles easily and effectively. I always use #8, #11, #18 steps to generate fresh idea for contents. Thanks JC.

Cindy Buccieri April 12, 2013 at 9:34 am

These are all great ideas to keep readers engaged and coming back. I also see what’s trending on Twitter. If you can add to whatever it is that already has people’s attention, you’re sure to see audience engagement. Great post!

Michael April 12, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Nice infographic. Thanks John

Victoria @ My Daily Cuppa April 12, 2013 at 5:21 pm

I am very happy to confirm that I am currently using quite a few of the ideas mentioned here.

The funny thing is that some of those blog posts occured organically and then I realised that could be classified as curated content, product reviews or reflection of personal story.

Thanks for the share :)

Kellie April 12, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Content is king! I really believe that the key to being really successful in an online business now is to provide real quality information to the reader. Metrics like bounce rate, and time on site are surely worked into the search engine algorithms, and the only way to excel in these areas is to concentrate on putting up high quality content.

Andrea April 12, 2013 at 8:30 pm

OMG this is so usefull, I’m just starting muy fashion blog and I was a bit frustrated because I don’t have like the best camera, or the biggest wardrobe to make amazing photos of what I like (street fashion) but this have given me good ideas to start, until I can improve my material.
wish me success, thank you for sharing those amazing things (:

Tammy April 13, 2013 at 10:15 am

Excellent infographic with real insight. Many of these are a stretch for me, but I’m up for the challenge.

Rupert April 13, 2013 at 10:31 am

Writing good content which is a benchmark, to make a blog crowded or not,,, and is already a lot of people who attest. To 22 above is very useful ..
