Make a list of ten questions your reader has about your subject. You may have to do some research here. Take a look at the “Getting Post Ideas” section in this post for a few tips. Keep adding to your list until you’ve exhausted every possibility
Next group the questions into 5-6 themes. Add a title to each theme group that describes the main issue or benefit for your reader.
For example, let’s assume you are a writing a Scrapbooking blog. The groups could be:
- Getting Started with Scrapbooking
DIY Scrapbooking Designs
Collecting, Curating, and Preparing Photos
Storing Finished Scrapbooks
Advanced Scrapbooking Tips
Scrapbooking for Extra Cash
You can take this one step further by brainstorming posts that answer the questions in each theme. But that’s for next week’s assignment. 🙂
Are You Stuck?
Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing but expecting different results. “ Are you doing that with your blog?
What if you had a 10-point game plan to improving your blog? What if you could finally see exactly how your blog could build your income or increase your audience? I bet it would take a huge load off your shoulders. This is exactly why I created the Spectacular Blog Review service.

This week I stumbled across a fabulous way to add more “punch to your list-posts.
I call it the List-Teaser. The List Teaser offers an exciting benefit without revealing “how” to get it. Create several bullet points to amp up excitement around your post.
Let me know how your question brainstorming went. Ask your questions about the assignment or the Spectacular Blog Review in the comments.
