Creating New Ideas For Content Articles

By Edited Jul 6, 2016 1 6


Are you running out of new ideas for your content articles? Does the creative energy flow that you used to have feel like it's blocked? Have no fear! Here are some fresh, new ways to get the ideas flowing again!


"A picture is worth a thousand words" is very true when creating and brainstorming new articles. Looking at pictures, including old photos, can jolt your imagination into dozens of ideas for articles. There are so many different interpretations of one picture alone! You can use magazines, catalogs etc. for this method. The articles do not have to be directly related to the pictures. They are ideas that are generated through looking at the picture.

If you just glance through photo albums, it will stir your imagination enough to drum up new content articles.



Reading or watching the news can bring up many ideas on current affairs for new articles for you. Always have your pen and paper handy. This is important because as quick as the idea may pop in your head, you can be distracted and forget it.



You can create new ideas for content articles by living everyday life. Even by going to the grocery store, the library and even by driving your car. Every conversation you have can spark a topic of interest if you are aware of it and looking for it. Be ready for that moment and you will never run dry of ideas.



There is plenty of opportunity at work while listening to people at meetings. Everyone has something to say and if you get one idea from an hour meeting, it may turn out to be an excellent one for content articles. There are so many facets in the business world that you could never run out of ideas in this area. Keep your list with you so you can constantly add to it.



Don't wait until you run out of ideas for your content articles before you think of the new one. Keep a running list so you always have a bright, fresh new idea waiting for you. If you don't have your back up list, it will become like a block when you need an idea. Having lots of choices, assures you will never get to that road block. Try keeping a list of at least 100 articles you intend to write while adding new ones on a daily basis. You will never be stumped for a new idea for your content articles.

This is very helpful. I know I have often gotten writers block and the moment I stop trying to come up with new ideas, I realize that my life is full of them.

Great ideas, I have not tired using pictures to get my imagination running again once I'm blocked. I have had some success with listening to music though, sometimes the lyrics take my mind in different directions when I'm thinking about the deeper meanings. Thanks for the tips.

I find that when I am taking a walk and let my mind just wander, I come up with ideas. Then I run to my notebook and write them down before they get lost!

Visual idea - great approach!

I try the approach "What problem can I solve today?"

I will be in line at a grocery store and will ask a stranger if they have any suggestions for a movie. I find it amazing what topics they will recommend not to mention what they will share about their day while they stand bored in line.

Everyone I meet has a story... not always pleasant, but many fascinating.

Think about how you live your life different from others. And why?

Life's good.

I enjoyed your article and do always have a list handy, my problem is wording it right for the particular sites. But your article got me thinking about places and things i haven't been thinking about. :)
