Here Are 8 Tips That Helps You As A Blogger To Keep Your Blog Content Always Fresh: 1. Keep up with current events. Are there current events the evoke strong feelings for you? Do you have a strong stance regarding upcoming elections or leaked celebrity photos? What are the topics that are weighing most heavily on the minds of your readers right now? Pick one and write about it. 2. Join some blog linkups! There are many linkups out there that give you a topic to get you started. Then, you can take it from there. Some of favorites are Finish the Sentence Friday, Five Minute Friday and Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop just to name a few. 3. Institute some themes. Posting about the same theme on a regular basis might seem counter intuitive to keeping content “fresh,” but it keeps you posting and keeps you thinking about new ways to approach the topic. 4. Invite someone to guest post. You may be all out of ideas, but maybe some of your blogging buddies aren’t! Ask them to guest post on your blog. Not only does it give you a break, but it might bring both of you some new readers. 5. Re-visit previous posts. If you just have a post or two from way back when you first started blogging that didn’t get many views. Now might be a great time to rewrite it or change it up a bit and make it new again. 6. Know your readers and ask them questions. When you are really stumped, why not utilize social media and ask your readers what THEY want to read? They might have some questions or topics in mind that you never thought of. 7. Find your voice. This seems to be the greatest commandment of blogging, but it can be hard to do. It’s important, though, because it allows you to take a topic that has been done to death and do it again – in YOUR voice. Can you say it differently with humor or by adding your own experiences? It may be a topic that has been written about a million times (i.e. potty training), but if you haven’t written about it yet, think about how you can make it new by inserting your own point of view and your own style. 8. Take a Break. Sometimes, this one is our last resort, but it shouldn’t be. As bloggers, we like to think that the blogosphere would self implode if we didn’t post anything for an entire week or (gasp!) even longer. The truth is, it won’t. When your body is tired, you rest it. When your mind is tired, you should rest it, too. If you are struggling with writing (or with life), there is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a step back, a little vacation, from it. You might find that it’s just what you need to refresh, refocus, and come back better than ever!
