With reference to the infographic ‘Ultimate List of Blog Post Ideas’ (available in Moodle) and the related blog post – http://www.digitalmarketer.com/blog-post-ideas– locate 5 blog posts that match 5 different types.
Post a link to each of the posts in the Portfolio along with the name of the blog post type being used for each one.
People love quotes from influential people. Pull together quotes from multiple influencers across a specific topic to create a ‘quote post’. Again if applicable- be sure to notify those that you quote that you have included them in your post.
Create content that tells a story that would be entertaining to your market. Some blogs only produce this type of content and others create a series around this type of blog post.
The how-to-post is another staple blog post idea. Describe how to execute a process and use images, video or audio to enrich the post and make it as easy as possible for you visitor to take action.
The rant post shows your human side by revealing your passion and anger about a topic that is relevant to your audience. It’s not for everyone but the right blog and the right audience will respond well to a rant.
Some blogs go dormant on popular holidays while others use the opportunity to deliver well-wishes to their audience and display their humanity.
