You can get inspiration from the day to day things you use or do by writing reviews about them and posting on your blog. When writing a review, introduce the subject to your readers. For instance, if you are writing about a specific book, talk about what it is all about including its author, genre and story in general. Next, write the things that you liked about it and things that you did not. The pros and cons should always be included so readers could determine if they would like it or not. Finally, write your verdict. Will you recommend it to your readers or not? And give an explanation why you liked or did not like the book.
1. Write on What’s Hot
Each day there is a new topic that you can write about as there’s always something new on the news. Keep your eyes on what’s trending on various fields including fashion, technology and entertainment. Check out what’s trending on social networking sites like Twitter. This is the easiest way to learn about the latest talk of the town. You may write something about it as readers would be interested to read about the latest craze.
