SNM070: Brilliant Blog Post Ideas

Coming up with blog post ideas can be exhausting.

Is it really possible to think of some brilliant topic that nobody has ever mentioned before?

When I'm putting together podcast ideas I use the same strategy I do for blog posts.

Some ideas are better written, but others are much better in audio.

Don't try to pull every idea from within yourself.

Three is a whole world of research out there.

There are loads of research tools that will show you what people want to hear about and what topics are most popular on social media.

You don't have to guess anymore.

Do my podcast episodes make me look like a genius?

I occasionally get an email congratulating me for being brilliant enough to think of a certain episode topic.

Half the time the idea for a good blog post came from research.

Having a list of a few ideas isn't nearly enough.

When I wake up before dawn and prepare to go outside to record an episode or two, I often look at my list and decide I hate ten or even twenty of the ideas that I loved the night before.

And sometimes an idea that I hated yesterday is exactly what I want to talk about today.

With that basis, take a listen to today's show to learn some of the most common mistakes new storytellers make and how you can avoid them.
