On the weekend I asked readers to submit their tips on how they find readers for their blog in an ‘open mike’ discussion – the results were pretty good (it’s done pretty well on Digg today – I hope some of those featured got some good flow on traffic).
Today I’d like to open up a discussion around another question.
Where do you Find Stories for Your Blog?
I’m interested to hear from bloggers of all varieties (news bloggers, tips bloggers, business bloggers etc).
- Where do the ideas from your stories come?
- What tools do you use to find them?
- What blogs/sites/offline sources do you use to track them?
- How do you work out which stories to write about and which to leave out?
I’m really after any tip that you’ve found helpful in keeping your blog up to date with interesting, useful and unique content. There’s no wrong or right answers – no tip is too simple or advanced.
Looking forward to reading your wisdom – hopefully we all can learn a thing or two in the process.
