Tools for Generating Content Ideas
On social media, we’re consuming new content and inspiration daily. However, when it comes to creating our own content, those ideas seem to be forgotten or abandoned in our bookmarks. Dewey is a chrome extension that allows you to search through, organise and share your Twitter bookmarks. You can build categories relevant to your content pillars and always have inspiration ready.
Similarly, if you’re lacking the content you need on your Twitter feed, this tool brings the top threads to you. You can select a stack of curated threads using various categories. If you’re looking to use social media less but still want access to valuable content, this is the perfect tool. You can focus on creating your own content while staying up to date with popular threads.
Naturally, we’re missing out on quality content across the internet. Especially those articles that were published years ago or fall outside of our interests. This website curates a list of 5 articles for you to read daily, across a range of topics and reading lengths. As a content creator, this can bring about fresh ideas that you might miss with your tailored social media algorithms. Again, such a tool can limit the amount of time spent surfing the web for interesting reads by curating lists for you.
Reading books can teach you to be a better writer, while learning new things and generating content ideas. Oku takes a minimal approach to creating a digital version of your bookshelf. You can organise your books into collections, share with the community using reviews, and keep track of your reading lists. Share your profile to keep others up to date on what you’re currently reading, alongside your curated book collections. This can provide a source of inspiration for other content creators!
