Sometimes it can be difficult figuring out what you want to write about. It's frustrating when you can't think of anything to write about. How can you get more ideas for article topics? In this article I'm going to share with you 2 simple tips to generate more article topic ideas. Let's get started shall we?

Watch the News

Turn on your local news channel or national broadcast and keep your eyes and ears open. Stories and new ideas will fly by you by the hundreds! Not just the news items but also pay attention to sports, health features, entertainment news, technology and gadgets, literally everything. These are all potential articles you can write about where you can add your own twist and tie it in with a niche you're interested in. Even product tests or research, new product announcements, new techniques, etc. can all give you great ideas to write about!

Google Alerts

Sometimes the news just doesn't cut it. It's too slow and it's not very flexible. It would be nice if there was some type of news system where news could be instantly brought directly to you based on your interests. Well no problem, there is. Check out Google Alerts . Simply type in a phrase or keyword that you want to instant updates on and Google will send it right to your email. You don't even need a Gmail account but I recommend signing up for one anyways since you can organize all your alerts very nicely. You can also customize the results sent to you by type, how often, and volume so you get exactly what you want.
