Fellow writing bloggers! We all know that we’re supposed to keep active blogs going, but it can be hard to come up with interesting and valid topics week after week after week. So I have a plan that could help furnish new writing ideas, as well as maybe generate a little extra blog traffic.
Last week, I sat down for my bimonthly scheduling session, when I choose and outline posts for the next eight weeks. Sometimes these sessions are a total bust (which leads to weeks of flying-by-seat-of-pants sorts of nonsense), but they at least get me thinking about where I could drum up more ideas. At the start of the New Year, WordPress gave me an overview of my last year on this blog. Included was a list of my five most popular blog posts, as well as some of my most popular pages. And I suppose I could write about those things over again. But that’s less fun than the alternative.
Here I propose a collaboration of sorts. All you have to do is post to the comments below, sharing with us your most popular (whether that’s by hits, comments, whatever you like) blog post from last year (or of all times- whatever you like!) and a link to it. This way we all get a sense of what’s popular and what readers might like to see more of. List as many as you like! Then later, when you’re hunting for ideas and you see one you’re interested in revisiting, all I ask is that you include a nod to the inspiring blogger, as well as the link to the original post. That’s it!
To the comments! I’ll go first!
