Article directory is one stop solution for latest content ideas. Article directory is place where bloggers submit their article to promote their blog. Its a place which update every minute.
Best part of article directories is, they cover almost every category and niche. So its easiest solution to search what bloggers are writing today in your niche.

You can also make list of frequently ask questions from your visitors or fans. Even I do the same practice to avoid lacking of content.
6. Keep Sharp Eye on Blog Comments
In my sense “Blogs Comment Section is Like a School Book from which I Learn”.
Comment is reaction of what people think on out post, so you have to keep sharp eye on this section. When ever people comment their view on your any article, give them satisfying answer. You will get idea what people exactly looking for.
Also have an eye on other popular blogs (your niche) comment section and analyse what kind of questions, problems people asking, which solution people need. This is the key to find content idea quickly.

Experts reviews always fruitful to new comers. It work as guardian for us. So make a list of experts and popular bloggers in your niche and search their interviews, expert comments, guide or tutorials.
It will definitely help for what expert doing and what you should do.
In my case I do browse interviews, videos and opinions of Matt Cutts, Neil Patel, Derek Halpern and Amit Agarwal.
9. Browsing Magazines and Newspapers.
Magazines and newspapers are reflectors of current trend so try to browse magazines of your topic for new ideas. You can browse daily news papers for what going around the world and what people talking about with your topic.
For Example – If your blogger in auto industry then you can read auto magazines like Autocar, Overdrive, TopGear.
10. Inspiration From Your Surrounding and Experience
Many people ask me that how successful blogger get unique and fresh content to write articles or they have some super natural brain of ideas but fact is they just post articles on what happening in there surrounding.
I know what you are thinking but before ignoring this point you can browse the sites like SocialTriggers, QuickSprout.
They just post articles on theme of there days to day life , experience, and every thing what going around.
Last week I was just browsing on net and found the article on Sixth Sense which made me realize that this is exact people thinks about blogging.
I raise that point and wrote an article on it.
People also love to read the personal experience and real stories so try to add it in articles, It built trust.

Before leaving I must say that don’t write what others are writing just concentrate on what you feel, what you learned and what your heart says because “Ideas are No One’s Monopoly”
