Blogging Tips: Coming Up With Post Topics
Anyone that’s written for a blog knows that at certain times, coming up with good topics can be a challenge. Maybe there’s a dry spell in the news, a slow week at the office or simply, a classic case of writer’s block. No matter the reason, it’s important to know that good topics won’t always come to you — sometimes you have to go looking for them!
Here are our favorite websites for finding interesting and relevant medical blog topics:
- Google News
Google News has become an invaluable resource for up-to-the-minute information on virtually any news story. And, best of all, like Google, it’s completely searchable. Try searching for your medical specialty, procedures you offer and any other keywords related to your field. You’ll be amazed with what you come up with.
- NPR Health
NPR isn’t just on the radio any more — it’s on the web. And, their section on health news is a great resource for drawing inspiration. With topics from the poignant to the offbeat, NPR represents top-notch reporting and news your patients can most certainly use.
For those who like to remain on the cutting-edge, Medgadget is the go-to destination. This medical technology blog, which is maintained by a group of MDs and biomedical engineers, includes recent FDA approvals, consumer medical technology and much more. Once in a while, you can find a great topic here, something your “techie” patients will truly appreciate.
- Medical Society Websites
When it comes to finding topics specific to your practice, society websites are often your best bet. When you get to these sites, try looking for sections like News, Updates or Featured Articles. Very often, societies will also host their own blog, another great starting point for posts of your own. A few of our favorites are the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The American Dental Association and EyeSmart from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
