How to Ask Amazon What People Want to Know About
Here’s how to use Amazon.com to come up with fantastic blog post ideas!
In the search bar type in your topic (make sure the search parameter is set to “All”) and look through the items that come up for ideas first.
In a search under the term Zombie the first 2 responses give me ideas:
The first item is a book of short stories which gets me thinking . . . why not write some short stories myself for my blog?!
The second item is zombie poety, and maybe I could try my hand at that, too.
Next I change the search parameters to Books only. I check the Non-fiction books. (Ironic to find non-fiction zombie books, isn’t it?)
The famous book The Zombie Survival Guide has the “Look Inside!” banner around it, so I click on that and scroll to the Table of Contents. This is where you find the gold – every chapter can be a separate blog topic!
Now PLEASE don’t think for a minute that I’m suggesting that you copy the ideas of the author. NOT! What I’m saying is that you can glean ideas for topics from the chapter titles. In fact, looking on Amazon is a great way to do it because you can’t read what they’ve written on the topic like you could if you looked through books in a library.
The sections/chapters for this zombie book are as follows:
- The zombie virus
- Zombie attributes (abilities & behavioral patterns)
- The voo doo zombie
- the Hollywood zombie
- Weapons and Combat techniques
- Defending your home
- Making a fortress
- Public areas
- Transportation in a zombie world
- History of Zombie attacks
All of these are fantastic for giving me one or more ideas on what to write for a blog post. Most are obvious since I’ve been writing the blog for awhile, but just reading the list sparks new ideas and excitement which is the purpose of this exercise.
Look through a few book titles and chapters to see what creative spark there is for you.
