After you have been blogging for sometime, there comes a time when you simply run out of ideas. You mostly feel you have covered every single topic in your niche. Most of the ideas you could have come up with have been written and rewritten to death. So what do you do?

You can't simply stop blogging, you have built a community around your blog and they are always looking forward to the next blog post. You love your blog, most of all you love blogging. You can do it for free, you can do it everyday. Well at least if somebody gave you some idea about a blog post. If nobody is coming up with the  ideas, here are some that will help you come up with a new blog post.

Get Google Alerts and keep abreast on what is happening in your niche. You will be getting updates on what other people are writing about a particular topic all over the net. You will be getting ideas on what to write about, like everyday.

You can also get ideas for blog posts from your comments feedback. Commenters may raise issues they want covered. In a way of replying you can come up with a good post that will cover a readers question. This shows your readers that you appreciate their feedback and it's one way of building a faithful blog community

Archived posts can also be moved to the top and make a new post. You can change it to meet the changes that have taken place over time. If you have many posts nobody will notice this. You shouldn't however do this often.

Break up large ideas in one post to smaller one idea post. For example I wrote a post on five ways you can use to promote your blog. I have written more posts on two of the methods; blog commenting and article marketing so that readers can understand them in a more detailed manner. Your readers will surely appreciate this especially if the subsequent posts follow the main one.

Lastly, you can review a post on another blog. From time to time when reading other blogs you will come across a killer post. Write about it on your blog and link to the original post. Remember one way of blog promotion is linking out to other bloggers. You give so as to receive.
