I heard that one of the Rolling Stones guys got the idea for one of their most famous songs when he was sleeping. He woke up in the middle of the night and recorded the song into a tape recorder (this is before iPhones) and the next morning he woke up and “Satisfaction” was on the tape!
I wish that would happen to me because I would like to be a rock star someday…
Sometimes ideas for blog posts just pop into my head like the Rolling Stones guy.
But usually I have a hard time thinking of ideas for blog posts.
So I figured if I had this problem, then other people might have this problem too.
So I decided to write this blog post about how to think of ideas for blog posts, even though it has nothing to do with RVing full time!
Actually, that could be tip #1 below (think of stuff that frustrates you and write about it on your blog)!
The good thing about traveling in an RV full time is you see lots of different things most days so you get good ideas for blog posts. But I’m not going to include that idea because everyone isn’t RVing full time like me.
So here are some ideas on how to think of good ideas to blog about:
1. Go to Sports Games, Attractions and Different Places
When you go to sports games and attractions you get a break, but you also get blog post ideas too. My family and I have done a few blog posts on sports games and attractions. For each one we got great ideas for different blog posts.
Chris Brogan says that you should always be looking for ideas for blog posts and writing interesting stuff down to blog about. This is good advice. I do this when we are traveling in our RV full time to remind me what to write about.
For instance, I have rally monkey collection and went to a Cardinals game:
Me and rally monkey #2 in Chicago!
I wrote a post on what this has to do with RVing.
Because we’re RVing full time, lots of people want to know about what we are doing. So that makes it a little bit easier to think of stuff to blog about. I still use Chris’ technique to help me remember stuff though.
But say you’re have a blog on cooking. And at the game you taste new foods that could inspire you to write a blog post on. Or maybe you could write a post about on something that happened at the attraction and how it relates to your cooking website. I did that on this blog post.
2. Make a Part 2 of Your Most Popular Blog Post
A super easy way to write a blog post is write part 2 of your most popular blog post, like “How to Write Blog Posts When RVing Full Time, Part 2” for example.
