1. Take notice of blog comments.
If you have an active blog that gets even a few comments, don’t just leave them to go by unnoticed — draw every little bit of ammunition you can from them by taking every single comment and turning it into a question or topic to write about on your blog. And if you don’t have many comments? Find a popular blog in your niche that does and use write them down to answer on your blog.
2. Go where the people are.
People are the ones asking the questions and needing your info, right? So it makes sense to go where they already are. And really, it doesn’t get much easier than a short virtual walk to an online forum in your niche. All you have to do is search Google for “your niche + forum.”
After browse the forum, you can use these questions people ask as “ideas” than can rework them into blog posts. You’re basically letting them do the idea generation for you. All you have to do is take notes on what you see!
3. Use a blog topic / headline generator
This one may sound too good to be true, but there are actually several places online that can help you generate ideas automatically — and, best of all, they can be super fun to use. For instance, Hubspot has a cool topic generator. All you have to do is enter three topics you want to write about and the tool automatically generates a whole bunch of ideas for you.
4. Turn to your bookshelf.
Most of us have books on our shelves that are related to our business — usually more than a few. So instead of letting them gather dust, pick one up and use it for inspiration.
I’m sure you’ve got plenty of good books to look at that’ll help you generate a whole range of ideas. But let’s not stop there. I’ll share one more strategy before wrapping up here. Take advantage of all of them, and you should have no trouble coming up with those 100 ideas in no time at all.

When one pictures creativity the stereotype is often an artist or writer. Though these professions have creativity in common, they aren’t the only ones who can take advantage of this skill (pay special note to skill, rather than talent). People in business, lawyers, mathematicians, scientists, doctors and many others can reap the major benefits of creativity.
