What Blog Topics Get the Most Shares & Reads? A Data Driven Answer (

Thanks to apps like +BuzzSumo we can easily discover what the most shared content is in a variety of different keywords, topics, and niches. This article from ExpressWriters breaks down the top 5 topics.

Some of my favorites:
💵 Making Money
⏰ Saving Time
😁 Being Happy

After reading this article I immediately jotted down at least one blog post idea for each topic (for most of the topics anyways). Then I made some brief notes for myself as to what each blog post would cover.

Always remember though, do not just write to get shares! Instead, write something that you know is going to be helpful to your audience.

That type of content will win every single time.
