BlogIt’s always nice to get quoted as an expert in something. I’ve learned a few things about blogging over the years as I’ve been doing it since 2006, and I shared my biggest blogging tip with Profnet Connect, getting quoted in a post last week.

“Follow the news! There is always something to write about when you follow the news. Go to Google News and type in the subject you’re writing about to get the latest in that industry.” –Micah Warren, principal at Large Media, Inc.

“Write about a news topic and then offer your opinion on it. People read your blog because they want your opinion. Every blog post doesn’t have to be Shakespeare or full of useful tips.” –Micah Warren, principal at Large Media, Inc.

So many people want to blog, but they stop after about a week – if that long. Most of the time, it’s because they think they have to come up with these genius ideas and that thought can be daunting. But, like I said here, just follow the news on any given topic.

There are a couple of benefits to this, not the least of which is that it’s a never-ending supply of blog post ideas. But also, if you’re talking about the things that are happening now, it means people will know your blog has fresh, newsy content. Isn’t that why we return to visit some sites more than others?

Write about the news and give your opinion on it. That’s why people come to your blog.
