Obviously my examples are PR, marketing, or social media relations. But you can easily turn these ideas into something for your industry, blogging niche, or particular interests.

Here are 10 shareable content ideas:

1. The manifesto. At the beginning of the year, there were lots of blog posts written about the three words people were using to drive their success in 2012.

2. The pop culture tie-in. I am terrible at this, but Molli Megasko is fantastic at it. She can tell you what’s happening on “The Bachelor” or with the Kardashian sisters and tie-in a PR lesson.

3. The debate. We often commiserate there isn’t enough debate on the social Web, so why not create it? That’s what Paul Sutton and I did last week when we debated Pinterest (I won). Giving people the opportunity to see two sides of something works incredibly well.
