Blog Post Ideas: Pinterest SEO 

This is my number 1 favorite way to find blog post ideas. Pinterest has an amazing feature where it basically tells you what Pinterest users search for on a regular basis! 

Amazing, right?!

Check out my Pinterest Marketing Tips

Here’s what you do. Type in a topic such as baby food into the Pinterest search bar. 

I use the drop-down list to get an idea for posts then click on an idea.

Blog Post Ideas: Google SEO

After I use Pinterest as a jumping off point I usually head over to the google keyword planner at The keyword planner is under the tools sections. I type in my blog post idea and see what pops up.

This is slightly more complicated than using Pinterest as a keyword planner but it can still be done. 

 When you are a new blogger you want to go for “Low” competition with as many Average Monthly Searches as possible. Sometimes a small word change will increase your traffic like crazy.

In this example you can see that I first searched “how to make homemade baby food” it had high competition for 100-1k monthly searches but if I changed it to “how to prepare baby food” I could get the same number of average searches for low competition. 


When writing your blog post be sure to include this long tail keyword in your first paragraph as well as several times throughout your blog post.


Pinterest Tip

Beware of “keyword stuffing”. Write out your bio in simple sentence using keywords but DO NOT just write a list of kewords!

Blog Post Ideas: Check your Traffic!

Go though your google analytics and find out which of your previous blog posts are the biggest drivers of organic traffic. 

Your top posts give you insight into exactly what your audience wants to read! 

When lots of people are reading a few specific posts that tells you that they are interested in that specific topic in your niche. Write more about that topic! 

Example: One of my biggest drivers of traffic for my mommy blog was a baby food post. I got consistent engagement on that post month after month.

What did that tell me? Well, it told me that other moms are interested in making homemade baby food. 

So what did I do? I wrote more posts on making baby food and ultimately made a homemade baby food cookbook! 

What did I accomplish? I got more traffic, increased sales, and increased my blogging income. If I had just ignored this info I would have lost out on all that traffic and increased revenue. 

It’s just too easy! Go check your traffic!

Why Spark Your Blog?

We have been where you are! We got married, overspent, had a baby, and felt like we were drowning in student loan debt, bills, and every day expenses. Starting our first blog changed everything! With my little mommy blog, I was bringing in over 1k a month in less than a year with pretty minimal effort and maintenance  (after I got the blog off the ground that is!)

That could be you too! If you have a few extra hours to spare each week think about what that extra income can do for you! And if you work really hard you can turn blogging from a side hustle into a full-time gig! It's possible!

So stop dreaming and start doing!
