There’s a reason why blogging is so popular. I’ve been posting to my blog for 29 straight days. For those that have been blogging for years, I applaud you for your commitment and creativity.

Continuing to come up with exciting content is a challenge I face every day. One day soon, I’m hoping to have a schedule locked down a real plan. Like you do, I’m sure.

As I was looking for ideas today, I turned to my SEO tool, Ubersuggest, for ideas on the keyword ‘blog posts’. I thought it would be fun to share the most popular posts about ‘blog posts with you.’

Yes, I consider keywords when looking for my content marketing. Ubersuggest has a Chrome extension to quickly peek at how the keywords are ranking while searching in Google. Check it out.

Interesting fact, none of these blog posts are recent. Even though your post doesn’t go viral today doesn’t mean it doesn’t have potential in the future. As long as your article is evergreen, you could see the popularity grow over time.
