It happens to all bloggers. The day to post has come, and you’re still scratching your head about what to write.

You can’t shake that ugly feeling that everything’s been covered and there’s nothing new to say about your industry. The frustration can make you want to dump blogging and get into book writing.

Fear not. Here is a list of enough blog post topics to keep your fingers flying all year long. These are accepted, tried-and-true topics that work for sharing, commenting and conversions:

2. How-to. Getting good, solid information is a huge motivation for internet users. If you can successfully take visitors through a step-by-step process, they will share and bookmark your pages. How-to pieces also build your authority in your industry. Titles could also include “Tips” and “Tricks.”
