Should You Blog About Sarah Palin?

Sarah Palin Alaska Magazine CoverWebsites and blogs can take advantage by following trends. The past few weeks people have been interested in the presidential campaign. Seemingly the most fascinating thing in that campaign has been Sarah Palin. She has been one of the top web searches the past few weeks. People want to find out about her.

Following the Trends

Now it may be a little late to start an entire blog dedicated to Sarah Palin. Of course it would be short term (unless she becomes VP). However if you were following the trends you may have found a way to include her name into a post of yours already (like this one). With so many different searches you may be bound to get some of the traffic. There are several ways to try to work her in. My favorite is a video of Sarah Palin’s Miss Alaska Pageant Video.

This is also a great method to do with upcoming movies, technology releases like computers, cell phones and music players. Of course once they are finally released you will see competition and most likely less traffic.

Be Creative

So should you blog about Sarah Palin and what’s hot? Yes and no. Be creative in working in hot topics into your post. It all really depends on your niche. Titles like Why Sarah Palin Wouldn’t Be Good At Making Money Online or Would Barack Obama Be A Good Webmaster or Is John McCain Too Old For The Internet could be funny, on topic, as well as able to do well on social media. These titles alone could intrigue people enough to read, especially as we get closer to the voting day, everyone seems to want info!

Are you blogging about what’s hot?

    Sarah Palin is a great topic at the moment, so I’d say go for it…
    If you are not running a political blog you may go off topic but not too much harm in that as long as you provide a reason as to why you are posting off topic. With elections that can prove harmful/helpful to the rest of the world, which the US does, posting your opinions on a political topic can only help spread the non reported main media streams opinions.

    I use trends a lot and find it effective, thought it’s probably best if you can anticipate a trend. I’ve done this with celebrities who aren’t as yet big time.

    Also with following Google Trends I’ve found that traffic often arrives a couple of days after they have been shown in their Top 100.

    It’s an interesting subject. As for Sarah Palin – a heartbeat away from being President – now that’s scary!

    Hope all is going well,
    Mike.
