17 Copy-and-Paste Blog Post Templates

Blog Post Templates

I’m usually a trooper when it comes to pain…but this wisdom tooth extraction has just not been treating me very well. Thanks for understanding that I still need a couple more days to recover before getting back on the saddle and writing blog posts again. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere!

Today, however, I’m happy (and very lucky) to feature a guest post from one of my favorite writers online, Kim Roach from Buzzblogger.com. She always produces fantastic material that’s quick to read. She’s already proven so with her first guest post that was published on SPI back in April of 2010. 

If you write at all online, this is a post to bookmark for future reference – guaranteed. 

Please give Kim a warm welcome, enjoy and share!

Do you ever get writer’s block?

I mean do you ever sit down at your computer with that blank screen mocking you in the face?

As a blogger, I’ve done this on more than one occasion.

Sure, I use all kinds of tricks to get the ‘ol inspiration motor running…

  • I keep a list of running article ideas.
  • I browse all of my favorite blogs scouting for possible ideas.
  • Tweet my followers for ideas.
  • If I get really desperate I’ll whip up a nice bubble bath and some wine :)

But sometimes you just need a good hook.

Something fresh and unique!

So today I’m going to give you 17 Copy-And-Paste Blog Post Templates that you can use as your own.

Happy Blogging!

1. Make a predictions post.

These are incredibly fun, especially towards the end of the year. Or the beginning of a new year :)

Take a look at what’s happening in your market. What’s hot? What are the current trends? And create a blog post around those with your predictions for the new year.

Not only are these types of posts a TON of fun but they also position you as a leader in your market.

So whip out the ‘ol Magic 8 Ball and publish your predictions!

2. Things You Might Not Know About Me

This is a blog post that I recommend EVERY blogger do.

One of the fastest ways to start truly engaging with your community is to give them a peek behind the curtain. Let them see who you are BEYOND just business.

The fact is that we are living through the humanization of business and people are extremely interested in the person BEHIND the business itself.

More than ever… we crave RELATIONSHIPS!

People don’t want cheesy marketing messages… they want YOU.

Your story… Your life… Your own unique personality infused into everything you do.

Your readers will be attracted to your weird quirks because they make you human.

When your flawed your real.

That’s one of the biggest pieces of advice I could give you this year.

Give people a peek behind the curtain.

Business is about HUMAN connection. And the only way to truly connect is by being completely you.

Your emails, your videos, your articles, every piece of content should be branded with your own, unique personality.

3. Why I Don’t Do ‘X’.

People LOVE controversy. That’s why the news channels thrive on ‘bad’ news. Kind of concerning but knowing this can help you instantly increase your email open rates, improve your headlines, and get your articles read.

One of my favorite ways to do this is to use the headline:

Why I Don’t Do ‘X’.

I recently used this in an email entitled “Why I Don’t Do SEO”.

As you can imagine, it got QUITE the attention because I was debunking a hot topic within our industry.

You can use this same strategy on your own blog:

  • Why I Don’t Do Diets
  • Why I Don’t Do Online Dating
  • Why I Don’t Do Article Marketing

This one is an instant winner when used properly. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun!

People are looking for something fun, unique, and different.

By providing them with something valuable AND entertaining, you’ll be the one that gets read.

4. (Famous Person Guide) to (Blank)

Another great place to get article ideas is to tap into the media. Take what’s hot right now in the news and tie it into your market.

Here are a few examples:

  • The Steve Job’s Guide to Time Management
  • The Justin Bieber Guide to Dating
  • Harry Houdini’s ‘Secret’ to Unusual Marketing
  • The M.C. Hammer Guide to Social Media

Tap into the hot topics that are ALREADY inside the mind of your prospect.

5. Case Study

No one can resist a good case study. It’s like a good story.

People love to get a behind-the-scenes look at EXACTLY how someone has achieved a certain goal.

Some examples include…

If you want to quickly become the market leader in your industry, whip out a few case studies and let people follow along on your journey.

6. Product Showdowns.

Here’s a twist on the traditional product review post. Instead of just reviewing a product – we’re going to do a product showdown comparing 2 similar products and sharing the pros and cons of each.

Some examples might include…

  • Optimize Press Vs. Kajabi
  • Rapid Action Profits VS. JVZoo
  • Tweet Adder Vs. Tweet Attacks
  • Odesk Vs. Fiverr

You’re providing extra value by comparing similar (and possibly) competing products. Helping your reader to decide which one is best for them.

You can take this a step further by sharing how you personally are using the product. Anything you can do to get beyond the boring, overdone, traditional product review. The old ways of affiliate marketing are dying. But add your own unique twist and you’ll quickly start to see the difference.

7. ‘X’ Things You Must Do After (Blank)

Here’s a super simple one that’s almost always an instant winner. It’s fun and easy to write. Entertaining for your reader and it plays on our natural curiosity.

  • 7 Things You Must Do after Writing a Blog Post
  • 7 Things You Must Do After Every Workout
  • 3 Things You Must Do After Every Date

8. How To (Blank) in (X Number of Days / Hours)

Here’s another extremely powerful template that’s similar to the case study post above…

  • How to Generate 427+ Visitors in 24 Hours
  • How to Get 1,200 Facebook Likes in 3 Days
  • How to Lose 12 Pounds in 7 Days
  • How to Get the Perfect Date in 7 Days

Use either one of these templates to knock-out a killer blog post when your strapped for ideas.

9. Experimental Posts

The only thing better than living an exciting life is to live vicariously through someone else’s exciting life. You can bring this entertainment factor to your blog by doing experimental posts.

This is basically where you set an interesting goal for yourself and post updates on your progress over a 30-day period.

Here are a few examples to get your brain rolling…

10. Comprehensive Pillar Posts

This one never gets old. If you’re looking to establish your presence online, one of the best things you can do to stand out is to start creating some epic blog posts.

A ‘pillar’ article is generally longer than the traditional blog post (1,000+ words). This sort of ‘flagship content’ is a comprehensive article dripping in value.

Building a raving audience of fans online all starts with mind-blowing pillar content.

Content that makes people think. Inspires. Creates value. Provides a new perspective. Pushes people out of their comfort zones. Challenges your readers. And creates nothing short of a braingasm!

Because of this, people can’t help but share it with others via Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, etc… So when done properly, your pillar posts should bring in a new burst of readers as well.

Here are a few examples of ‘pillar’ posts:

11. (Insert Desired Benefit) That No One Talks About

As humans, we naturally want to listen in on ‘insider information’.

Kind of like when you were little and you tried to listen in on your sister’s telephone conversations. We love listening in when we’re not supposed to :) That’s why this template works so well…

  • Traffic Strategies That No One Talks About
  • Weight Loss Secrets That No One Talks About
  • Dating Advice That No One Talks About

12. Blog Post Roundup

Here’s an easy one that you can whip up quickly when you’re running short on time. List the top 10 blog posts from the year. Or the top blog posts from around the web that week. Or simply do a ‘Best Of’ post for your industry. This could be the best Twitter posts, forum posts, best blog posts, best news items, best product releases, etc…

Whip up any combination of your choice. You could even do this on a weekly basis. People love these types of posts because it keeps them in the loop on what’s going on in the industry without having to do all the searching themselves.

Kikolani.com does a really good job of this in their ‘Fetching Friday’ posts…

13. Things I Wish I Had Done Differently

These types of posts are almost always a hit because people love to read about other people’s ‘mistakes’. Plus, they provide a ton of value for your readers and help them to avoid common pitfalls.

Give your readers a look behind-the-curtain. Be authentic and transparent and people will love you for it.

Some example headlines might include:

  • 10 Lessons I Learned in 2011
  • 7 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started
  • 12 Things I Would Do If I Were Starting From Scratch

14. The Tools of the Trade

Give people a behind-the-scenes look at the tools you use in your business. People love these types of posts. If you want to take it one step further, shoot a video of your office. You’ll create instant engagement with your readers.

Here are a few example headlines you could use…

  • The Top 12 Marketing Tools I Use in My Business
  • 7 Marketing Tools I Couldn’t Live Without
  • 18 Must-Have WordPress Plugins
  • (LIVE Video) A Look Inside My Office

15. Ask / Involve the Reader!!

Engagement is quickly becoming one of THE most important marketing metrics in business.

All of your content should be a reflection of the wants, needs, desires, and frustrations of your reader.

There are LOTS of different ways to do this. You can create an “Ask the Reader” type post where you ask an engaging question and start interacting in the comments. Or you can challenge your readers to achieve a specific goal that month and report back with their results.

Here are a few examples…

Challenge your readers:

16. Debunk Industry Myths.

Every industry has its fair share of myths, legends, and misconceptions.

People love nothing more than debunking common beliefs. Plus, by pointing what’s WRONG in your industry, you also position yourself as a leader.

Some examples here might include:

  • Top 7 Dieting Myths Debunked
  • Why I Hate the Atkins Diet
  • 7 Lies You’ve Been Told About Dating
  • Why Pickup Lines Don’t Work (and what to do instead…)

Talk about what’s WRONG in your industry. Nothing gets more attention than controversy. But you must do it right. Debunk with style :)

17. Comment On Industry Gossip

Every industry has it’s own circle of gossip. Writing about these hot topics is one of the best ways to increase readership and tap into the conversation that’s ALREADY taking place in the
mind of your prospect.

You can get your fill of juicy gossip browsing the major news sites, in related forums, related blogs, and in your inbox.

This sort of timely ‘news’ (i.e. gossip) makes for great content.

  • New fad diets
  • Famous people on such-and-such diet.
  • The Truth About Product X
  • Where is Mobile Marketing REALLY Headed?

Part of positioning yourself as an authority is staying ahead of the trends within your industry. If you can be the first to report on relevant trends that are impacting your industry, then people will literally ‘tune’ into your station to make sure they stay updated.

Take a stand on the issue and help guide your reader to make an informed decision.

Use the 17 blog post ideas above to stand out from the crowd, get your blog noticed, and become an industry maven.

  • http://www.ivblogger.com Sheyi Shobayo

    Kim is a favorite writer of mine and I featured her in one of my posts as bloggers to be followed. I actually learnt the basis of blogging from her. Someone posted her blog on WF and from there, I got to her blog which was a gateway for me to SPI. Now I have my blog http://www.ivblogger.com and still listen to her always. Kim Rocks! The Traffic Madam Online!


    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Wow! Thanks so much for your kind words Sheyi :)

      You sure know how to make a girl smile!

      well said…!!!

  • http://smartlifehacks.com Charlie

    I would definitely like to know why you don’t do SEO :)

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Charlie,

      Because it’s painfully time-consuming and there are WAY too many other strategies I can use to grow my business a LOT faster :)

      – Kim

      • http://www.findyourcashcow.com Taline

        Care to elaborate on these “other strategies?” I’m sure many people reading this are pretty interested.

        Great post btw! I will be implementing some of those ideas!

        • Thomas

          For targeted traffic, guest posting and forum marketing are much more effective than SEO.

          Thanks for the awesome post Kim!

        • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

          Solo Ads (one of my favorites)
          Ad Swaps
          High-Level Guest Blogging
          Integration Marketing
          Forum Marketing
          Your Own Affiliate Program (HUGE!)

          Those are some of my favorites :)

  • http://www.cobraspace.com Jesse Poteet

    Wow I’m going to be using this post as a resource a TON. Get better soon, Pat!

  • http://alphaefficiency.com Bojan – Alpha Efficiency

    This is a great reference! I was going through Copy bloggers swipe files, but I never found it entertaining nor connected to the headlines he gave. He gave specific ones, instead of putting in (x) and (insert custom word here).

    This makes it so much easier to navigate. This article immediately went to my Evernote as a swipe file. Gonna start using some of these right now. I got a day of so it’s time to write some quality content!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Gotta love Evernote!

      That’s become a staple of mine this year :)

      Glad you enjoyed the swipe file!

      – Kim

  • http://makingsenseofcents.com Michelle

    These are all great ideas!

  • http://www.disneyfoodblog.com AJ

    Perfect timing on this one, Pat and Kim! I’ve been feeling the need to juice up my blog with some new and interesting topics. My blog isn’t a personal one, but I’m finding more and more that the readers still want to know about me and what I like (why??). I’m going to use these templates to interject a bit more of that.

  • http://www.strayblogger.com Nate

    Great post Kim.

    I’ve doubled the traffic to some of my sites by just implementing a few of your traffic tips. This is bookmark-worthy like Pat said.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Awwww. Thanks Nate!

      You ROCK :)

  • http://videon2o.com Cason

    Awesome post. Thinking of starting my own blog soon and this will be of great help. Thanks :)

  • http://talesofwork.com kimanzi constable

    Wow, this post is amazing! I think I’ll have to check it every week for idea’s on blog posts. After reading it I changed the title of my post today! Thank you so much for such great value!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Kimanzi!!!

      I’m starting to blush :)

      • http://talesofwork.com kimanzi constable

        I subscribed to your blog, great stuff!

  • http://UncleLex.com Lex

    Dang, Pat. Even when you’re out, SPI still rocks. Great job, Kim. It’s easy to see why Pat lets you have the steering wheel once in a while.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Lex!

      I certainly feel honored to guest post here at this wonderful community :)

  • http://www.skamid.com dimaks

    Wow, I read this post from top to bottom. Gigantic list of tips to improve on my blogging rounds. Thanks for featuring this.

  • http://www.webbusinessreviews.com David

    Thanks Kim for a great post. A bit of a read, but well worth it. You may have a new Fan 😉 David.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks David 😉

  • http://www.wingchunwingtsun.com/ Wing Tsun

    This is definitely a really helpful article…. this is going to make easier the process of creating new articles when you run out of ideas…. bookmarked! Thanks Kim.

  • http://www.brockstarlife.com Brock @ BrockStarLife

    Awesome post! I think the “pillar” post is a great idea. It might take a whole day or even a couple of days to write/format, but isn’t that worth new readers and some potential earnings?

    SPI definitely has a lot of these…

  • http://www.dansumnerblog.com Dan Sumner

    Hey Kim,

    Thanks for the great addition to my Evernote list too. Like you say, you have got to love it.

    The last two posts I have tried to write have died after the first paragraph. They are still in draft format waiting for inspiration! Or just complete lack of planning…

    I find a tutorial post works well too Kim. You can stretch them out over a period of time. It keeps visitors coming back, and they also work as a great resource for your archives. You can also repurpose them into products or eBooks.

    Thanks for the great resource Kim.

    Dan Sumner

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Great point Dan!

      A series of posts definitely works well for keeping your readers engaged and coming back for more :)

  • http://easyarticlestarters.com Peggy Baron

    Thanks, Kim. I especially liked #4.
    I know this isn’t a comprehensive list, but I also like to do written interviews where I ask an expert 3 questions my readers would want answers to and then post the expert’s written answers.

    I also like to do an FAQ-type post from the questions readers have asked me.


    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Peggy!

      I definitely love the FAQ style. Those work really well for creating engaging content that you can whip out quickly. They also make for good emails to your subscribers.

  • http://www.crazyeye.com Dave Lopez

    Thanks for all of the great ideas, Kim! I’m doing a couple of these now so this post was a confirmation to my efforts. I hope we’ll being seeing more guest post from you on SPI.


  • http://www.sportmanagement.cc Remco

    Kim, I’ve seen most of these, but the way you put them together really shows the strategy behind the templates.
    This will be a favorite bookmark to come back to!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hi Remco, that’s cool that you’ve seen them.

      Have you used any of them? That’s the key.

  • http://www.buybmrposts.com Thomas @ Buy BMR Posts

    I have to say that this is my favorite guest post on SPI so far! Although I come across these templates every day, I personally never notice them and think about how I could use them on my sites. Thank you for putting the pieces together for me :)

    Also, for number 7, I find it more common that people use “X Things you Must Do BEFORE X” rather than “after X”. That way it creates some urgency to read it too!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Thomas!

      You totally just made my day :)



  • http://smartproblog.com Smarty

    Kim, this is awesome post. I’m not surpised that Pat was so happy to have guest post from you.

  • Mark Conger

    Holy crap! Where’s the print button! This is good stuff!

  • Mark Conger

    I hate it when I use the wrong email address and my avatar doesn’t show!

  • http://www.thehomeforsurvival.com Survivor Mike

    Kim, this is great stuff. I’ve used a few of these on my site but have to say I’m missing out on a bunch more.

    I notice my eye is drawn to certain ones of these that I see on other sites. Thanks for this.

  • http://www.dietshakemix.com diet shake

    Thanks Pat! This gives me so much writing ammunition for future posts.

    I love stopping by your site! thanks again man. I hope your 2012 goals are still going strong!

  • http://www.fiscallychic.com Cathy

    Great post! I’ve written some of these sorts of posts in the past (personal, comprehensive pillar, and guest/engage readers) and they’ve had great success. The comprehensive pillars can be tough to write, but they definitely bring in new readers through Google searches or sharing.

    I’ve marked this post as a favorite for future reference when I hit blogger’s block!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Cathy!

      You know it’s interesting.

      I find whenever I put a couple of days into writing a REALLY good
      pillar post – it brings me traffic and sales for YEARS. In fact, just
      recently KissMetrics.com linked to one of the pillar posts on my
      blog that I wrote in 2010! And they’ve sent me over 100+ visitors
      so far.

      Those pillar posts can send a TON of traffic for a very long time :)

  • http://www.extramoneyblog.com Sunil from The Extra Money Blog

    Kiim this is good stuff.

    These are great to “quick start” the post especially when facing mind block. You have pretty much summarized the entire plethora of blog post types that attract the most interest.

    Pat, thanks for featuring Kim.

  • http://stopyourheadachetoday.com Casey Dennison

    Wow..These are really great templates Kim! Thanks a ton..I will def. be using these.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Casey! Glad you enjoyed them :)

      I always keep a rolling list of ideas for when the ol’ writers block kicks in. Lol

  • http://www.transformationalleadershiphq.com Mighty | Transformational Leadership

    This is an awesome, awesome post! And I will print it and put it in my folder of blog and niche site ideas. 😀

    Be well soon Pat!

  • Matt Johnson

    What is the WordPress plug in that Pat uses to get the e-mail opt-in at the bottom of the blog posts but just above the comments? Trying to find something like this forever!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Pat will have to answer this officially.

      But I’m betting that it’s not a plugin. Probably built-in to his theme.

  • http://www.ipnostudio.com Andrea Hypno

    This will come very handy, so I printed it for further reference and now I’ll go checking your website. Great article!

  • http://www.paulcaparas.com Paul Caparas

    Thanks for the ideas Kim. I will start reading your blog as well!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Paul!! You ROCK :)

  • http://bibledifferences.com Herman Grobler

    I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for this post.
    On my blog I handle the causes for the differences between the older versions of the Bible like the KJV and modern versions like the NIV. On the one hand I wanted to give people who subscribe to my blog some real value in a weekly e-mail like Pat always does. But if I send the more interesting differences to them, what do I post on my blog, and how do I expose those not subscribing to this material? On the other hand there are many interesting aspects around the subject, but not directly concerning a difference, like the question of how to handle favorite Scripture that now irrevocably is proven not to be authentic to the original autograph. Such a dissertation falls outside the scope of my blog, but is equally important. The same goes for commenting on experts on the subject etc. Now you have given me the answer!
    Thank you!
    Pat, I appreciate the integrity and ethos you time and time again prove in your whole attitude! no wonder you are so blessed!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hi Herman,

      Great to hear from you!

      Why not post your articles via an email AND on your blog.

      That’s what we do :)

      And in generates extra sales and traffic by doing both.

  • http://smallbusinessdevelopmenthq.com Tomas

    Thank you, Kim! Everything except the idea of pillar content is knew to me. Thank you for expanding my mind.

  • Richard Pickett

    Pat, Kim wrote this post then bribed us all by saying she’d give the best commentor $1,000 prize…


    Anyway – Kim is certainly a top marketer in my book and as you can see from her post on your blog, she’s got great ideas form her own personal experience that work in the real world.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      You have quite the imagination Richard :) Lol

      But thanks so much for your kind comments!



  • http://letstalkpersonality.com Bill

    Wow! Bummer about the wisdom teeth. Sounds like no fun at all.
    This is a great post from Kim and is filled with many ideas many of which will help me straightaway.
    I like the first idea about making predictions because much of what I believe about personality easily falls into this category. Most people have little if no clue to what makes them excel or feel out sorts when they neglect parts of their personality.
    The cool thing is there are simple inexpensive tools that reveal some of the needs and demands of our personality. Knowing what your personality needs and acting upon them can be transformational.

  • http://www.michael-holcomb.com michael holcomb

    Wow, Kim, what a fabulous, helpful post. I especially like the links to the other great posts on your website. Fleshing out your personality certainly does work for buillding a bond with your list!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Michael,

      So true!!

      Personality is KEY. Especially in today’s overly crowded market.

      Infusing your unique personality into everything you do is one of the fastest ways to stand out and attract raving fans.

      It’s the one thing that no one can duplicate :)

  • http://www.ChainBridgeMarketing.com Chris

    What GREAT post! Readers will surely get a lot of mileage out of this one – lots of great ideas to prevent that “writer’s block” wall form hitting you in the face – thanks, Kim!

    …and thanks to you , too, Pat, for inviting Kim to guest blog for you – sorry about the tooth pain…

  • Denise

    Great guest post Pat (?) More like a complete book :-)

    Kim Rocks! Always has and always will.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Oh my goodness!!

      Wow :)

      Thanks so much for your kind words Denise.

      I’ll probably go around with a goofy smile on my face all day now. Lol

  • http://tpooi4lworkfromhome.blogspot.com/ Maurice Bernier

    I have no “Shock & Awe” here since this is just what Kim does to help others in our industry. Everything she does I read and why? Simply because I learn from her excellent mentoring each and every time I do.

    Thanks to you both for another very valuable blog post!

  • http://bestavailableplr.com Jenny Dunham

    Thanks so much for sharing these blog templates, Kim! I’m a collector of any kind of template and I know I can put these to good use.

    And, Pat, I sympathize with the wisdom teeth pain. I too had a very traumatic experience when I had my wisdom teeth out years ago.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Jenny!

      You know wisdom teeth are kind of funny.

      Everyone seems to respond differently. I actually went and ran 5-miles the day after I had my wisdom teeth taken out.

      But I had a friend in high school who was out for weeks.

  • http://www.jasondandridge.com Jason Dandridge

    Hey Kim, thanks for another quality post. I love to consume content from both you and Pat. Your sincerity is much appreciated. Have a wonderful day! :-)

  • http://CharityCason.com Charity Cason

    As always, Kim does a great job of delivering useful, quality content that can be implemented quickly. I love how you always get to the point, Kim! :) No fluff, no filler – just actionable content.


    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Charity!!

      I’m definitely a big fan of cutting out the fluff :)

      I have lots of places I go for inspiration.

  • http://www.headwindsltd.com Joel Head

    I’m a fan, Kim, and have been for awhile and this is one of your better posts. I do a weekly blog post and these are some great ideas for content.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hmmmm. I’m not sure what to think about that one :)

      If you go to my blog you’ll find LOTS of pillar posts.



  • Nicole Graves

    I have been a huge fan of Kim… Your emails always compel me to open them! Excellent tips.. Any tips for a marketing, newbie who is dragging her feet setting up a wp blog because I am not sure where to start!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Nicole!

      What sort of questions do you have?

      It’s really just about taking action!! What’s holding you back?

      Feel free to shoot me an email and I’d love to see how I can help :)

  • http://www.socialable.co.uk Lilach Bullock

    Great post as always Kim:) I’m always looking for ideas/inspiration to write great blog posts, particularly as I’m currently writing a new blog post every day!

    Really useful list. In my experience I’ve found that when I’ve written a controversial post it goes viral very quickly, generates huge amount of traffic, shares, comments etc.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Good point Lilach!!

      Controversy works very well. Anytime you go against the grain. Do something differently. People take notice!

      People LOVE to be surprised and entertained. The interesting ‘characters’ are the one’s people listen to.

  • http://www.designerhandbagsforyou.com Jackie

    This was some great food for thought. I especially like the way you give some real life examples for each tip.
    I think I may just be off to write for a while.


    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Go Jackie Go!!

      Let me know what you end up with. I’d love to check out your post :)

      Awwwww. Thanks Martin!! You sure know how to make a girl smile :)

    Dear Kim,
    An awesome post, and it could not have come at a better time..I was just getting ready to write a newsletter! Folks, you simply can’t go wrong following Kim, she is a
    straight shooter, no BS gal, who loves her Starbucks!

  • http://sandy-halliday.com Sandy Halliday

    Hey Kim, what a great list of ideas.

    I am hardly ever at a loss for something to write for my blogs but you have given me some great ideas for even more posts for my health niche blog.

    I like the “Things you might not know about me” idea. I saw another marketer do this on his blog. I thought then what a good idea it was. It did make me feel more connected to him even though I had met him at a workshop once.

  • http://sitescapestudio.com DJ Winarski

    Writing another blog post was on my ‘to do list’ today and I was stuck. In my procrastination I found your email and came here. This was exactly what I needed! By point #2 I was off and had the post written within a half hour!

    Thanks Kim!

    May your recovery be quick, Pat.

  • http://TampaBandPhotos.com Russ Robinson

    Amazing post…chock full of great ideas that I can’t wait to try on my photography blog. Thanks for sharing! ~Russ

  • http://www.createagoodincome.com Pat Coldiron

    Good post Kim. I have been suffering from writer’s block and have picked up some good ideas.

  • http://www.kidsrideonvehicles.com David

    Very helpful post to take stock of what one is doing (or actually not!) and what is working and ways to expand breath of content.

    Amazing when one finally slows down long enough to read a post like this what you can get from it. Found myself musing “right right I was going to try a few of those wasn’t I” … thanks for the prod 😉

  • Rhoseanda

    Hi Kim,
    It is ALWAYS a pleasure to read your post. Your post, emails and webinars are humorous and of value. Its funny that it seems like I can actually hear your voice evertime I read your words. I have become so attached to your teachings where I feel like I have known you for years.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Wow! Thanks Rhoseanda :)

      Your comment made my day!!

      ~ Kim

  • http://growwithstacy.com/ Stacy

    These are some great ideas! The case study really works, last week I wrote a post called How Meditation Improved My Life in About 30 Days and it has been a big hit!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      That’s awesome Stacy!

      I’m going to your blog now to check that one out :)

  • http://www.corebizstyle.com/ Bruce Hunter

    Kim, This certainly falls into the category of a pillar post. It is rare that I stumble onto a post with this much depth and practical relevance! I spent two hours last night reading through your post and was immediately able to incorporate, implement and benefit from your templates. I also intend to start a weekly roundup and you and Pat will be at the top of my list!

    I spent a few hours on your website last night. It was time well spent. Thanks so much for sharing so much valuable information.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Wow! Thanks Bruce :)

      I’ll be on the lookout for your weekly roundup!

  • http://wisewellwomen.com Nanette

    Somehow, I can never get enough of these quick tips for creating content. And lately, it seems, I’ve been needing some fresh ideas after focusing on my own home-study/workbook around journalling prompts for a while. I’m ready to play with prompts someone else has created. And this list is just plain, good ‘ole fashion fun, too.
    Since my birthday was just last week, I think I’ll try out “It’s my birthday and I’ll blog when I want to”, combined with “what you may not know about me”.
    Thanks, Kim. You continue to provide such great value, and I truly appreciate that.
    Wishing you well– Nanette

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Nanette!

      I love those ideas :)

      And Happy Birthday!!

    I’m an avid reader of both Pat and Kim so was doubly pleased today to see this guest post by Kim on Pat’s blog. Great post Kim and very useful – I have copied and pasted it as my inspiration list pinned up by my computer.

    Pat – I hope you feel better soon – wisdom teeth extraction can be very miserable. Get your wife to pamper you for a day or two – works wonders!!

    Kim – Absolutely fabulous post. You got me giggling to myself about a few

    Killer post, the only problem i have is starting to blog. I haven’t even started yet. And i really can not write. I hardly write a blog comment. And i hardly write in forums. So is it really for me?

  • http://www.whatsmyspin.com Rob Metras

    You just have to realize what an absolute fountain of ideas that Kim has just given me/us. It provides you almost an editorial calendar to get moving ahead and fill the calendar up. I have followed Kim Roach for several years and find that she provides phenomenal value. She is a resource you want ,no need, in your info tackle box.

    You rock Buzzblogger

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      “Info Tackle Box” – I like it!!

      Thanks so much for your kind words Rob :)



  • Brundige

    Howdy, Howdy ;
    You never cease to impress me monumentally and repeatedly. To refrain from being boringly redundant. Let me just say I see the passion, enlightenment and creativity in everything you write. It’s not at all surprising that your posts attract subscribers like bees to honey, they see what I’ve always seen…the real you. Blessings, prayers, prosperity and continued success. Good things often manifest from unfortunate incidents. A stressless and painless recovery be to Pat during the unfortunate timing of his wisdom tooth extraction.=>Stay Frosty !

      Thanks Brundige!!

    Plenty to write about now )

    Great post – you definitely always over deliver, as I’m obviously not the only one who found a lot of ideas in this , especially the Experiment posts idea. Keep em’ coming !

  • http://www.thinktov.com Gavriel

    There is a lesson taught by the sages: “you can never get hurt by helping someone out”, and there is an addition to this: “on the contrary, you can only benefit”. well Kim, you prove that teaching. It seems like you give endlessly and you still have more to give! there are a lot of people out there who understand the logic but for it to succeed the knowledge has to find its way to the heart. In other words, you have to really love the people to be able to keep on giving and I believe you do!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Gavriel!

      I think this is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received :)

      Thank you so much for your kind words.

      That means a LOT to me.

  • http://www.jamienorthrup.com Jamie Northrup

    Awesome post Kim!

    I’ve just printed it and you know what I’m going to do?

    I’m going to do a post for each one, the next 17 posts I do on my blog will follow this list, I think it’s awesome that you did this.

    I usually always have ideas for posts, but I’ll keep those for the guest posts I need to do and do the next 17 based on your list in the exact order you did it, I figure 2-3 a week, so basically my next 1.5-2 months are planned out :)

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Jamie!

      That’s AWESOME :)

      I’ll be on the lookout on your blog.

  • http://Be40Look20.com Roger Haeske

    Amazing ideas in this post Kim. And I don’t say that lightly.

    I’ve been writing blog posts and emails for over a decade (and earning a full time income since 2005) and you gave me some new ideas I definitely plan on using in the very near future.

    And I’m not in the Internet Marketing niche but I can convert many of your concepts for the subject of raw food, fitness and anti-aging.

    I was not expecting it to be as good when I first saw your email subject line.

    Definitely bookmark worthy as others have stated.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Roger!!

      Thanks :) You know you look very familiar.

      Your name sounds very familiar. Have you done
      Clickbank products before?

      ~ Kim

      • http://Be40Look20.com Roger Haeske

        Hi Kim,

        Yes one of my first products was on Clickbank and still is the “Lightning Speed Fitness Program.” And I am a customer of your Traffic Dashboard which I liked very much.

        Though finding the time to use your information is another story.

        BTW, I’ve also noticed you have some infotainment style influences in your emails lately. Even in this blog post do I see any idea or two from a particular source on email copywriting.

        This could also be where you recognize me from. You’ll know what I mean when you read this.

        But you’re also smart in continuing to post really meaty content. I think the infotainment can only go so far to keep attention and loyalty of your readers.

        I personally enjoy more the posts and emails that give me inspiring ideas and useful information. Even if it is “useful but incomplete”. My primary purpose for reading emails is not entertainment but information.

        I suspect that’s the same for many others out there in Internet land.

        Thanks for sharing the great info and hopefully you’ll find a way to drop the coffee habit. :-)

        You know I had to say something as my business is health.

        And keep those pillar posts coming. I’ll be doing more of those myself.

        Thanks again,

        Roger Haeske

    Kim, you continue to feed us with gem after gem. In the several years that I have been following you, I have been able to grow immensely in the area of IM knowledge.

    It is especially rewarding to see you continuing to practice what you preach in a simple and unequivocal way. Thanks for your willingness to spend your time in the lab testing what really works and then freely sharing the results with the rest of us.

    Thank you very much.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks James! I love having a little swipe file I can reference any time I’m stuck for ideas :)

      Although… I have to admit most of the time my brain is on overdrive. Lol

      • http://www.nicheincomelab.com James

        Your very welcome. Swipe files are great! I have my mind all over the place on any given day with all the projects I am working on so if I can reference stuff like this is makes the work a lot easier and more focused. Also I can get my blog posts done in half the time then.

        Thanks again.

  • http://thecoolnerd.com Eric Williams

    Great post, Kim. I’m sure Pat is proud of you. I set a goal to blog way more this year. Now that I’ve got these templates in a listing, I don’t have to stress so much on switching up my style of posts. Thanks!

    Not like I need anymore ideas for posts (still have too many drafts that are not yet completed), but this is nonetheless and awesome post and a great resource for any blogger.

    I wish I would have thought of this idea….

    Great job.


  • http://collegeinfogeek.com Thomas Frank

    I love post idea lists like this (Sean Platt also did a great one recently). Your second topic is a great one – I think another idea you can add to it is blogging about a failure you had and what you learned from it.

    Great work Pat!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Pat!!

      I’ll definitely have to check out Sean’s post.

      And I love the idea of blogging about a failure and how you
      learned from it. I’ll have to do that one soon :)

      ~ Kim

    Hi Kim (and pat),

    I really like these blog ideas, but they are all kind of tailored towards a blogger that has already established credibility and devolved some regular viewers. Is there any blog ideas that are better for a blog with little to no regular viewers, and only minimal trAffic from seo (much of my traffic comes from links on social media, but these tend to be one time visitors)

    Make a predictions post. – No 1 thing on my list. I try and follow various particular niches in my field and make a lot of back links by publishing great prediction posts. The good thing about prediction posts is that authors and other bloggers tend to pick them up and discuss them quite frequently

    Creating a blog is easy but getting readers to read & come back is the hardest part which takes a lot of time & effort.

    Thanks for the post.

    Hi Pat, and Kim. Looks like my first comment here got blocked by your filter, so I’m back. I’ve PINNED this tab in my google chrome browser, because I think I’m going to be using it over and over. What incredibly great advice! I’m always lost for ideas on what to write, but you’ve given such great guidelines here, I’m pretty sure I won’t get writers block anymore. I only discovered your site this morning, Pat – but already, I’m hooked! Thanks so much for your generosity with information.

    Thanks for sharing these ideas. Every writer hits a point where they need some help brainstorming. These are effective because they’re specific but not specific to a particular industry. So we can all benefit. Thank you.

    Sabe Pat você è incrivel gostaria de trocar umas linhas com você de forma particular em e-mai, se isso fosse possivel é claro ,entendo que seja um homem muito ocupado,mas tenho algumas duvidas quanto as diferenças culturais em relação ao Brasil e Estados Unidos da América, mas eu particularmente acho muito interssante a sua linha de marketing, apesar de ter bons infoprodutos no Brasil eles se parecem muito com modismo onde vai um vai todo mundo, só para você ter uma idéia dia 13 de maio será lançado aqui no Brasil um produto que já foi ou ainda é não sei muito famoso nos EUA que chama FORMULA DE LANÇAMENTO 3.0 pelo guru Erico Rocha. Mas o que aconteceu então ? Todos os Web Marketer do Brasil inteiro está divulgando o produto, então par mim acaba virando modismo ou monopolio ou seja os outros produtos nestes tempo de FORMULA DE LANÇAMENTO acaba ficando em segundo plano.
