  1. Mike Smith says:

    Good round up of lists. I expected to know each of them but surprisingly I haven’t seen any of them before. I was expecting to see the few posts from Chris Brogan and others who have blog topic lists posted. I’m kind of glad I didn’t because I now have a whole new set of ideas to look through and draw inspiration from. Thanks for posting.

    • Mike Brown says:

      Your comment draws out something I don’t talk much about, Mike. Here at the blog, I try to focus primarily on content we generate as opposed to things you can find elsewhere. At times it may seem like it’s a too inward looking strategy, but I’d rather our content be distinctive than a rehash of what someone else is saying.

  2. It’s always nice to see an article that gets you thinking about new things and in new ways. This one and it’s many lists does just that. And even if you don’t actually use any of the topics listed it will certainly get you thinking of some of your own. Thanks for what will be food for thought for some time to come.

  3. Kalimah Ann says:

    Thank you! 

  4. There are over 2,000 more blog post ideas in here: http://flip.it/42ekh – they’re not aimed at re-hashing anyone else’s content, but more to define/offer creative processes and ways that you can be inspired to create fresh, unique content yourself.

  5. Suzanne says:

    Thanks for the list of ideas. As a new blogger I do appreciate this. I like to write posts that I feel will help someone, but sometimes it is nice to write a fun post too. Thanks again. =)

    • Mike Brown says:

      You’re welcome, Suzanne. I think you’ll find that fun posts can do surprisingly well in drawing readership. People enjoy a change of pace, and “fun” can be helpful, too!
