Monthly Trends + How to Instantly Triple Your Post Ideas

Monthly Trends + How to Instantly Triple Your Post Ideas

For many bloggers, coming up with ideas for great posts is one of the biggest challenges. The good news is that if you have an idea for one post that will appeal to your readership, odds are, you have at least one more. How? By covering a story from a different angle. Every time you write a post, you determine the angle you’ll take—even if you’re not consciously doing so. Just like taking a photograph from a different angle can yield very different results (imagine a photo taken from the base of a large tree versus a photo from the top of the same tree versus a close-up shot of an individual leaf), covering a story from a different angle can give your readers a brand-new experience, even if you’ve covered a topic before.
