Your Next Blog Post Is In Your Comment Section

As we've been talking about lately, coming up with fresh content ideas for your blog isn’t always easy.

Today I have a great new tip for you to create content and the best part is that some of your post is already written.

This technique is perfect for those busy days when your calendar is full but you want to get a blog post published.

I know you’re thinking…ok, Kanani, spill the details. How do I create content using my blog's comment section?

So here goes.

Your next content idea waiting for you in your BLOG COMMENTS!

I'm gonna name this method of content planning 'Comment Content.'

The 'comment content' method is really easy to implement and when done right it will allow you to write quickly about a topic that you're already familiar with.

How do I create content using my blog comments?

Keep an eye out for questions in comments.

Save them, hoard them, and when you need a quick blog post, take that question – copy and paste it into your blog and answer it.

That was easy, wasn’t it?

Of course, you still wanna answer your readers right away when you see the comment come up. Go ahead and do that. But keep a mental tab on this question and ask yourself this:

  • Will other people have the same question? (99% of the time the answer will be yes)
  • Is there more I can share on the topic?

If you answer yes to both questions (and you likely should), then the commenter question qualifies for a follow-up blog post. And that’s exactly what it is; a follow up to the original comment question and your answer.

When you start your comment content blog post, start by introducing the topic or question. Share the question and then let your readers know that you wanted to give a more detailed answer, thus the new blog post. Share the answer you gave the reader in the original comment and elaborate as you see fit.

That’s it.

A quick and easy blog post and for a portion all you had to do was copy and paste.

Format it, add a graphic and you’re ready to hit publish. Rinse and repeat with other questions as they pop up in your comments.Readers love these types of posts because they often had the exact same question, but they were too shy to ask.

If you find yourself with quite a few questions, you may even want to make this a new featured category on your blog. It will quickly become a valuable resource to your readers.

The 'comment content method' will save you time in the long run, too!

By being thorough in your answer, it will not only apply to this exact question but a multitude of related questions. As and when they pop up in comments, all you have to do is reply with a link to the post.

Think of it as a way to create your own personal FAQ section of the blog.

And Voila!

That is the 'comment content method' and yet another way to keep your blog fresh and the good content rolling!

How are you using your comment section to further your blog?

  1. Thank you so much for sharing such a great article on how to create content with this new method. I really liked the points & tips that you have shared here in this article. I will definitely share this article with my fellows.

  2. This is such great advice! I normally try to incorporate a question of some kind in my post to help readers comment. I’ve had several blog post come out of my comment section but following up on questions!

  3. This is a really good idea. I can say I’ve used it like once, but I feel like my posts don’t always get a ton of comments, which would make this method difficult. Any ideas on how to get more comments on posts?

    • Be sure you have a strong call to action at the end of your post. Sometimes people just don’t know what to do after they’re done reading, you know? I like to ask questions or opinions at the end of my blog posts. In addition, be sure to keep an eye out for possible content ideas in your social media comments!

  4. That was super interesting Kanani, I read one similar blogpost created out of comments and it sounded wonderful. And now after reading your post, I guess it can do quick feed to blog!

  5. Oh wow, that’s an awesome tip I got here, as a budding blogger in the town, I was literally struggling to get such innovative ideas to write hurry up posts, thanks for this ‘comment content’ blog post idea. Now will have more eyes on my comments section. Thanks again!

  6. Oh this is a great idea. There are so many times that I have been answering comments and I think to myself that is a great question I hope they read my response. This gives more people the opportunity to find out more.

    • Yes and the beautiful thing is it’s so relevant to what people are wanting to hear usually! If one person had a question, it’s very likely another person had the same question, too!

  7. This is a really clever method! Sometimes I struggle with finding a topic I actually want to write about, and I never thought about going to my comments for inspiration!

  8. Most of the comments I get on my blogs are response to what I have posted . Didn’t see much questions yet.but will keep your idea in mind if some questions comes in future.

  9. I recently published my website and blog in April and that is one of the things that I struggle with, content. I’ve never heard of the term comment content method, but it’s a great idea! Thank you for sharing this, I’ve read other blog posts about coming up with content, but nothing really struck me like your post. I’ll definitely be looking through my comments section! Thank you again

    • I’m so glad that you’re gonna give it a try and I’m kinda happy to hear you haven’t heard this technique elsewhere. It makes me feel uber original. Thanks Carissa <3
