Researching a Topic to Write About

Writing any random topic is easy but the question is if the readers will like it or not. In the age of eCommerce, online marketing, and even SEO (search engine optimization) wherein a good content can be monetized, it is important to know what kind of topic we want to present to our readers in the first place.
The internet is a very useful tool in researching for the trending topic. If you are a personal blogger and want to gain more views, check what is trending and who are your intended readers. Take note that not all trending topics equate to viewership so you need to discern which topic to choose from.
Another way is to check the trending topics on Twitter and create content out of it. However, if your blog is not yet established, this trick might not help because not all Twitter users are blog searchers or readers.
Knowing the demographics of your blog can help in finding a good topic to write about. If you have a wide viewership, you can research about a trending topic in the country or location where your readers are based.
The quickest way to research a topic for your content is to check the trending topics of the top bloggers or influencers and create your own content or interpretation. The psychology of this is because people are hungry for more information about something that they are curious or amused about.
If you are a movie fanatic, you can write a review about the latest blockbuster movie. Movie fans take delight in finding a good movie review about their idols. On the other hand, those who are unsure whether they want to watch the movie will need the review to convince themselves.
To sum it all, if your blog does not have a large following yet, it is important that organic searching leads them to your site. Of course, a good topic is the pre-requisite to achieve that goal.
