Sometimes it is easy to find topics to write about. In fact you may find you have too many ideas and not enough time to write about them all. You may find as you write one article it sparks ideas for other articles. At other times you may find yourself short on ideas.

Here are five ways to find ideas for articles:

1. Take notice of signs
Take photos of all sorts of signs and look at them when you are short of ideas. The one above could inspire you to write about the ways rules and laws protect us. Alternatively, you may write about your family's recreation activities. Perhaps the dog or horse image inspires you to write about your favourite animal. Another idea is an article on the health risks or benefits of alcohol.

2. Look at old magazines
The older the magazine the better. You may get ideas for a number of articles highlighting similarities or differences between the era of the magazine and now. Look at the advertisements as well as the articles. How have ideas changed in the areas of beauty, housekeeping, cooking, women's rights, fashion and hobbies?

3. Look at photos you have taken
Are you in the habit of snapping all sorts of things when you are out and about? Do you take photos thinking they might be useful as an image for an article one day? Rather than always writing your article and then searching through your photos for a suitable image, work the other way around.

Find an image that sparks ideas for an article. You may have a number of photos on a topic and find you can write your article around the photos.

4. Quotes
You may find it useful to start a collection of quotes for future articles. Alternatively, use the internet to locate quotes on a topic of interest. When you write your article you may decide not to include the quote itself but it may have got you thinking about a particular topic.

5. Write about something you have done recently.
At first you may think you haven't done or seen anything out of the ordinary lately. Think again. Perhaps you can write an article on five tips for doing something you do frequently. If you are doing it, chances are lots of other people are too. If you are feeling stressed, others are too. Perhaps you have some hints to share.

If none of these ideas are helpful to you, well I guess you will have to do a Google search to find some ideas. Alternatively, stop trying so hard. Go out for the morning, take a shower or nap or read a book. While you are doing something else, an idea for an article may just pop up.

Thanks for the tips! I sometimes do magazine reviews for the Reviews hub. Any ideas for blogging?
I started a blog but as I only did a few posts I am no expert. However, I have been reading up on blogs and one of my resolutions for 2016 is to start another one and blog regularly. I found some info about blog prompts at https://uk.pinterest.com/bohoart/blog-post-prompts-ideas/ This might be of use to you. Some general ideas I have picked up are to do a post on your interpretation of a famous quote, share your bucket list, provide a unique spin on a topic most people are familiar with and doing lists of well, anything (favourite ways to spend a lazy day, places you would like to visit, best holidays, easy meals etc). Hope this helps.
