Hey, nice tips. One more thing which I do to get ideas is browse sites like sphinn and blogcatalog. They have a lot of posts submitted daily and we can get ideas from those posts.

Yes, I agree with this. Sphinn is a great source for getting cool ideas in the IM niche.

Nice ideas!! I think Writing reviews about latest Gadget/apps/softwares and web services had been always a good source to write posts .


Garish wasil August 22, 2011 at 6:14 am

Jasmeet, That will work with Tech Blogs only. And writing software or web service reviews is fine if we want to write them on our blog but most of the other bloggers will not accept such guest posts.
