Does this ever happen to you?
Well, you are not alone. But, unfortunately, as they say “Conent is King”, so where do you get it from?
Here are my Top 4 Tips For Generating Content For Your Blog
1. Guest Bloggers
First of all, I am a guest blogger on THIS blog, so this example is one of my favorites. There are many people out there with great content that need a place to share it and get extra exposure. To find guest bloggers, simply send out an email to your list or post on Facebook that you are looking for a guest blogger on a specific topic and for them to send you some of their writing samples.
This is a win-win for both parties because it gives you extra content for your blog and it gives your guest blogger extra exposure. If the guest blogger has a website, you can allow them to refer back to their website at the end of each post.
2. Wiki-How Articles
To get some “How to Articles” to add to your blog, go to www.wikihow.com
In the search box on the top, enter in your key word. For this example, I used “flat tire” (which can be used if you have a blog about automotive repair, cars or something related)
When you click search, you will see a list of result of different articles. Pick the article that you like the best.
Once you choose the article, scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see a link that says “Embed into your blog”.
After you click the link, it will take you to a page with a bunch of HTML code, just paste that into your blog post in the HTML tab section.
When you post the article you can make any changes to it that you want, but you must keep the last line of the post giving credit to the wikihow website.
3. WP Robot
This is a plugin that can autopost to your blog. It depends on what your blog is about and what the focus is, but this plugin can autopost content based on keywords that you set.
You can set the autposting at whatever interval you want, by hour, by day etc. It can post content from Amazon, Yahoo answers, YouTube, Article Base, Flickr, Yahoo News, Twitter, PR Web, Yelp, Linkshare and more!
This is a great tool to automate your blog posting as well as brining extra traffic to your blog. We've personally used it to autopost Amazon, YouTube and Yahoo Answers.

4. Top News Sites
If you are looking for inspiration on blog topics, see whats happening in the news and write stories around those topics. For example, if you are in the Heath Niche and there is a new diet trend that is in the news, write a blog article about it.
