Tutorials and How to posts
These are the most popular and searched content in all over the web. We always seek how to do information in Google or other search engines. From ‘how to get rid of pimples’ to ‘what to do when your baby cry’, we search everything online.
The formula here is simple. As I have always said that the main aim of your blog has to be able to solve a ‘problem’. Through the tutorial posts, you solve certain sets of the problem online and attract a large number of visitors to your blog.
How to posts and tutorials are an excellent medium to show your knowledge and expertise. When people notice that you are willing to share everything you know for free, they trust you and a good relationship is established.
Do not think that if you pour everything in your blog posts, people will steal your ideas. Nobody can copy your expertise.

This is an amazing way to attract people to your blog. This is just compilation of various things like your favourite apps or websites or anything in this world. List posts are gold mines of information in one place and people always visit such posts to save time.
For example, instead of visiting ten websites on baking tips, you would want to visit a blog post like this that offers a list of easiest baking tips.
In case of list posts, just the headline is enough to attract visitors to your blog and they are really the most shared thing on the web.
Here is an example of list post I write for the new bloggers.
Informative posts/ Ultimate Guides
Informative posts are the posts you find on the web which offer every minute details about any given topic. They are more or less like How to posts but more informative and detailed.
Ultimate guides can be repurposed later to two or three parts. As they are longer than usual blog posts, their content can be split into parts which will save you lots of time when you are racking your mind to create vivid content.
By the way, have you checked my Ultimate Guide to Writing A Blog Post? It has more than 2.1k words and teaches you everything which you need to know before start writing a blog post.
Reviews are one of the most popular blog post ideas all over the world. People love to read reviews. In face according to Amazon, 90% people read reviews before buying anything online. So, as a blogger and an authority, your reviews have lots of value to your readers.
You can review anything which is related to your blog’s topic. The deal here is to be unbiased and authentic.
Here is an example of a review I did for a book on my blog.
Do you love to create graphics for your blog? Then infographics are the thing for you. They are fun to create, pinnable, informative and let you use your creativity. The posts with infographics can go also without write-ups too. So, whenever you are not in a mood to write more but creating some graphics, create an infographic blog post.
Infographics are also the best blog post idea for graphic designers, tutors, course creators and any other blogger who wants to represent their content artistically.
Infographics are also one of the most shared contents on social media.
Here is an example of infographics I created for this post.
