Should I worry about running out of topics to post about on my website? Is recycling topics okay?

    So I found a good niche, but I'm worried about starting a website and email list and eventually running out of content to post. Have any experienced marketers experienced this problem? How do you overcome it?? I know you can ask your users what they want and such, but I feel like eventually, you will still run out of content. Does that make it okay to recycle content sometimes, or do you eventually have to switch niches?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with recycling topics as long as you are adding a new twist to it. Look at the subject from a different angle and then write about that. Asking your readers what they want to see is also an excellent way to make sure that you are keeping them engaged.

    I suspect you're not actually passionate about your topic - if you were you probably wouldn't run out of things to say.

    It's ok to cover old ground, but look at other angles: new developments, things newbies do wrong, hints to not get stuck

    hello my friend.
    I think topics never end so there must be some topics that you forget.

    I agree, the topics to write about in any niche are endless, but you have to obtain the information to write about them.

    Personally, I don't like just one piece on a topic. I like different angles, pros n cons, updated info, etc etc. I can't imagine running out of things to write. The problem is I can't seem to have the time to sit and do it. I think I should carry around a voice recorder :D.
    Think about recycling your topics like this. "Remember xyz? Look what they've done to it now!" or some junk like that.

    You'll never run out of content ... and here's why:
    Do you ever run out of things to talk about with your friends? Of course not!
    Whatever niche you're in, it will evolve and grow and change. Mostly, your content will be guided by people's problems and questions.
    And those will NEVER end!

    Having said all of that, do the same themes come up time and again?

    Of course! And that's golden. Then you know that you can create a product - perhaps an ebook, a training video series ... whatever ... around that topic because you've found an evergreen sweet spot in your niche.

    Right now, as you start your website, you only know whatever you know. But, trust me, your knowledge will grow, your understanding will deepen and above all, your experiences will accumulate, so you'll have new insights and ideas. You may even decide to conduct and experiment related to your niche that even you won't know the outcome of ... and you could share that adventure, step by step, with your followers on your blog!

    Content will no more dry up than you'll run out of words to say to your mates.

    You'll be fine. Have fun and good luck! :)

    Don't be affraid. You will solve this problem when you will face it. Don't think about problems too soon. You didn't started so now you should think how to start but not about future problems. The main problem which everyone are doings is thinking about problems too soon. Good luck. ;)

    Do some research. Find the topics that are not completely your niche, but closely related. Let the users share their knowledge and experience. You will realise soon you have a lot to say and show :)

    I have the same issue. Some niches just run out of topics to write about. I usually do marketing at that point and get the word out about my content.

    I know professional writers that can only write 30 articles about some niche and never look at the website again till they starting seeing some earnings.

    Sometimes you just have to set and forget.

    You can also update your existing content by adding some more latest information on the topic. For example, if there is an article on "Social Media Trends in 2018" you can add the "Social Media Trends for 2019" and make a new article. But I don't think you will fall short of topics.

    An easy way for me is to take a sub-topic that was touched on in a previous topic and spin 'it into it's own standalone topic.

    This shouldn't be a problem, after all you can always outsource the articles and creative process to good content writers.

    Yes it is okay to do a certain level of topic recycling, but the articles have to be properly re-written so that Google doesn't see it as duplicate content (trying to cheat your way higher in search rankings by just copying content).
