Article Topic Ideas

Coming up with topics for your articles can seem challenging. I’ve wasted quite a bit of time trying to figure out what to write about. So here, I’ve compiled a list of five strategies to help you find topics to write about.

 5. Write About Your Personal Experiences  

Writing about things you’ve done is pretty easy. A lot of the time, however, people doubt whether or not their story is interesting enough. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be interesting! Writing about some mundane thing you did over the weekend like going grocery shopping or walking your dog is totally okay. As long as it’s 500 words, does it really matter?

4. Write About Things You Like

Personally, this is my go-to. Everyone likes something. Popular topics include music, sports, and gaming. Even if you don’t do anything (which is very scary to think about, please get a hobby) you can write about food you like or your favorite kind of weather

3. Write About Your Problems 

   A lot of the time, many articles get left unread. Which is the perfect opportunity to complain about issues that you have. I’ve done this quite a few times. Mostly because I love complaining. It’s one of my only talents. Writing an article about why your mad at your best friend may not be as satisfying as therapy, but it works. Besides, if someone does happen to read it, you don’t have to put your name on it. Just don’t mention anything that may be a cause for concern among anyone who may read it, you don’t want to get reported.

2. Write About Nothing

I’m not proud of it, but I’ve written a couple of articles that were about nothing in particular. It’s extremely easy. All you have to do is write down whatever comes to your mind. This is really good for when you slack off and realize you have nothing written down on Friday. The quickest article I’ve ever written was a list of questions I have. It took me less than twenty minutes. You can even write five hundred words of random fun facts you know. Writing about nothing is really the essence of this class. As long as it’s five hundred words, it’s most likely going to be published. Unless you have a ton of grammatical errors, or are writing about a wildly inappropriate topic (which is actually ridiculous, use common sense). Also, I’m always willing to help you edit your articles. I actually enjoy it.

1. Write About Things You Hate 

This may seem to go hand in hand with writing about things you like, but trust me, it’s a lot different. Writing about things you hate is actually a lot easier than writing about things you like. This might just be me, but when writing about things I dislike, I tend to reach five hundred words a lot quicker. Just, don’t write about people in your personal life that you hate and use their name. It’s rude and probably won’t get published.
