Finding a topic

“What to talk about? What can I write about?” Those questions, I’m sure, are questions many writers/bloggers face at some point in their careers. So what’s the best way to keep finding different topics?

I know I haven’t been blogging for a long time, but I know what it is like to not have a topic to write about. Thankfully, I haven’t had that issue for a while.

What I did was build a library of topics and stories that I can draw upon before I get to that stage. It’s been a blessing when I’m unable to write a blog before Mondays. Now, when I have time to write, I don’t have to spend any precious time thinking about the topic. As a newbie to blogging, I still have other jobs to do and can’t always make time to write.

But when there is time to think, I like to consider stories and topics to add to the library. Topics that will bring about good discussions are ones with controversy. In Christian circles, the most controversial is the “prosperity gospel”.

The “prosperity gospel” is the name given to the belief that God wants to bless us financially. And the key to unlocking this blessing is to give to various ministries. That’s a very short summary of the “prosperity gospel”.

Many people believe and support it. Many think it promotes greed and paints God as someone we can manipulate. It is so divisive that I cannot go past it.

For the next few weeks, I’m looking to discuss the prosperity gospel. So keep an eye on this blog and see how a topic can be pushed out for a number of weeks. In the meantime, do share with us what you do to find topics to write about.
