Reviews & Comparisons Post
Review a product or compare two different products and let your readers know which one is better, and why.

Interview someone who would be of interest to your readers. This could be an influential blogger or expert in your niche.
A listicle is an article that contains a large list of items that are relevant to your readers. Listicles or list posts are quick and easy to write and can generate lots of traffic.
Write about a controversial subject in a way that is helpful to your readers and not overly offensive.
How To Guides & Tutorials
Create how-to posts that guide beginners through a particular set of actions or process. These can be on any subject, for example, look at my posts on how to install WordPress, and how to upload a WordPress theme.
Help your readers remember everything they need to about a particular subject by creating an in-depth checklist. You could even have the checklist as a free download. This can be offered as an opt-in freebie to your mailing list.
I hope these ideas inspire and help you to create content for your blog. Remember to jot down every idea that you come up with so you have plenty of options to work with on those days when you have a mental block and can’t think of anything.
