I selected this article from Curatti written by Catherrine Garcia
 because it provides insights on how to find the best topics for your blog content.

 

Finding fresh, original content can be a challenge for bloggers.

 

How to Find Trending Content

 

Content should keep your audience interested and engaged. I agree that you can be successful by using the right methods and resources to find what is shared the most.

 

Garcia explains the best steps to content research.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • It's still very important to find the right keywords for your topics. Use Google's tools to discover what's most popular and trending.

 

  • Jump into question and answer websites and social media curation resources into order to discover the most popular headlines and ideas in your niche.

 

  • Use blog comments to not only gain valuable feedback, but to learn more about what your readers want. It's there that you'll see discussions that pertain to questions they need to have answered.

This article on Curatti written by Jan Gordon features Part Two of the best our contributing writers in 2016.

 

Here's what's highlighted

 

Since our launch 3 years ago, Curatti has evolved into a crowd-sourced blog. Was this intended? Probably not! But it’s quite a journey, and one that we lightly guide , but ultimately go along with.

 

In any given week, we will get several inquiries by potential new guest bloggers. There are also no shortage of requests for us to curate around great Infographics – something we’ve also been happy to bring to our readers.

 

Ultimately, the way we have evolved, we owe a debt of gratitude to each and every one of our contributors and supporters. Let’s not forget all of the great writers who gave us permission to republish their articles. The list of those names reads like a who’s who of established thought leaders, and will be published at the end of this retrospective series.

 

For now, we will present you with excerpts from one article by each contributor who has posted 2 or more articles this year. There are so many, we must break this into 3 parts.

Before and after each excerpt, you’ll find links so that you can read the rest of the article, if you desire. Some very interesting and helpful stuff here!

 

Read the full article to get the scoop from 8 featured authors on Curatti.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because she explains how to improve your blog by planning ahead.

 

Use some brainstorming to create a positive focus for your content.

 

How to Create a Perfect Post

 

You need to have a game plan for each week of content that you publish. I agree that this will help create a better direction for your blog.

 

Elliott explains how to improve your blog posts by mapping out your content strategy.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • You need to write your articles with the reader in mind. Your audience is in the driver's seat when it comes to blogging success.

 

  • Write blog posts that educate your audience. Share your knowledge and expertise in order to help make improvements in their lives.

 

  • Become a thought leader by writing from a voice of authority. This will be done in your chosen target market or niche.

Read this article by [url=/u/129000 x-already-notified=1]Martin (Marty) Smith[/url] if you 're tossing with which path to proceed with?


I'm in favor of WordPress responsive website for its Social SEO  prowess and mobile adaptibility and publishing power.

Jonathan Ginsberg's curator insight, February 1, 2014 2:16 PM

I build my websites in Wordpress and include a blog component - the best of both worlds.
