“Where’s the Beef” in Your Blog? Here Are 22 ‘Beefy’ Ideas!

Are Your Blog Posts all Fluff and no Meat?

Is blogging part of your personal brand communication plan? Do you struggle to find content to blog about? Today I was struggling. I was simply at a loss. In my own personal brand communication plan, I set a goal to to blog 1 time per week on my own blog and 1 time as a guest on other blogs. Generally I can stick to this goal. Recently, however, I am finding that by focusing on the specific number of times I blog each week, I am falling into the trap of posting content just for the sake of posting content. I ask myself, am I blogging just to check it off my ‘to do’ list each week?  Clearly this is not the goal and I am running the risk of diluting my personal brand when people read my post and contact me to ask, “Where’s the beef?”
