The biggest problem i have with my blog is that i run out of material. It’s hard to post relevant material every friggin day. I’ve said that going to the book store is a great way to get inspired. Picking up a new magazine can help create new ideas for a niche blog. Another way to get your juices flowin is by visiting web forums. Web forums like Digitalpoint, sitepoint, and wickedfire are filled with interesting threads. If you run a blog about blogging, you’re sure to find a lot of topic ideas. If you run a “make money online” blog, then you better stay current by hitting these web forums.
As a noob, sometimes it gets overwhelming inside those forums. The lingo they use is often very foreign. Don’t get intimidated. Just try to soak up all you can. There are a lot of successful webmasters on that forum. You’ll find valuable contacts by getting involved. If you read a lot of those threads, you’ll learn a lot of SEO tricks and marketing ideas. Instead of buying a useless ebook for $45, read various threads in webmaster forums for free. I can almost guarantee that the info discussed in are way more useful.
