Chris Brogan recently posted 100 blog topics for his readers to write about. It’s a great list and one I’ll be referring back to in future, I’m sure. But for now, I want to write about the 9th item on the list “How I Find Blogging Ideas”.

This blog is getting known as a personal development blog. And yet, I’d like to think that it’s different from other personal development blogs. This is no criticism of the other blogs, it’s just where I see my niche (or where I want my niche to be).

For example, I don’t think many other personal development sites would have posts which link to And yeah. That’s basically what this blog is about.

The whole point of this blog is to get you (the reader) to think about your life. To take note of what’s going around you and learn to see the lessons and opportunities in everyday occurrences. And that’s why I try not to post links from all sorts of sites and topics, and relate them to the lessons and message of this blog. That’s why I post about things from soccer to music to technology.

And that’s behind how I get my ideas for posts. I explore news feeds, read articles and blogs, watch videos. And I try my best to take note of what is going on around me (in my personal life, or in the more general world). And then I link that back to the theme of this blog as best as possible, trying to point out the lessons that can be learned.

Hopefully, the posts will get you thinking about what’s going on in the world around YOU.

What about you? Where do you get your post ideas from?
