    Need Ideas for Content? Look at YOUR old Forum Posts

    Here's one if you don't subscribe to the eZines newsletter(s) and are stuck for ideas for your own blogs, spin some of your longer/older forum posts into blog articles.

    Not too hard to do, and even if you've written something very similar before, change the title, start the writing from scratch based on the forum post, and heck even link to the older, related article.

    You need to rewrite either the forum post or older content to avoid duplicate content penalties, but if you're stuck could be just the thing to help you get some content out.

    If you look at some of the very large/> 5 million unique visitors a month content sites out there, a commonality is the large number of very closely related, yet differently titled and worded articles on those sites on the same/similar topics.

    If you don't have a blog which is appropriate to use, use your Netbuilders blog (second menu option from the top left next to User CP). That's on my list of things to do by summer, its free (unlike Warrior Forum), but you need to be careful to put quality content up vice spam...

    Cheers and Happy Sunday,

    exactly what i have started doing just recently...

    this could also work if you are lacking more content on topic and want to expend it.

    example : Innovative and interesting usage of Linux Live Disk’s | Anant Shrivastava : Techno Enthusiast

    This article was started with basic idea from me but a large array of options came from crowdsourcing.

    This is always a great idea, James. One that I've found works successfully time and time again.

    Nice idea , javan. Writing idea is not as such tough job as the searching for what to write is. As you said search on the older forum posts of yours previous one. Well, you may share or extend the idea from others as well. Like a person have started to write an article of a subject, you may extend and elaborate it further. this will decrease the time for writings.
