Blogging Ideas: Start an Argument

blogging ideas start an argument

Everyone has their own often strong beliefs on a topic. Take that topic and make it controversial. For example, many weight loss niche leaders teach people to cut out all or most carbs. You don’t want to start a war, but you do want to make people think. The best way to create interest and build your following is to create a blog post that stirs up your audience.

If you don’t care for this practice, you might create a blog on “Why Carbs Are Okay” and you’ll get feedback from those who are pro carbs and those who are against them. You’ll get a lot of comments, and some people will comment wanting to tell you why you’re wrong while others will mention why you’re right.

This can lead to a conversation that can be helpful to those who are for and those who are against something.

A word of warning…

Starting an argument gets a lot of attention, like rant posts. But you don't want to be the person who is known only for arguing, or only for ranting. Ration yourself to 2 arguments a year. By all means, feel free to disagree with me…

There is a caveat to this, and that's for those that argue for a living. You can argue all you like, you're known for it and it's expected of you. Failing to argue in this scenario will damage your reputation.
