7 Ways To Find Trending Content Ideas for Viral Bloggers

If you’re reading this right now, you probably are interested in viral blogging or learning how to find trending content so that you can capitalize on it while it’s hot and make some money from it.

I’ve done this over the last few years by capitalizing on some trends that I’ve noticed and it’s led to some pretty good pay-days.

One problem I used to have was actually finding content that was going viral and when it was on its upward swing.

If you catch something before it hits the critical mass, you can usually capitalize on it pretty well.

If you catch it at the end of its buzz, you’ll still be able to make a bit of money with it, but less than if you caught it sooner.

Jumping Into a Blue Hole in Freeport, Bahamas

 

Have you ever had that crazy little feeling rush through your entire body when you’re standing over a cliff looking off of it?

If you’ve ever jumped off a bridge into a river, jumped off a cliff into the ocean or done anything where you were jumping off a height you have felt that feeling.

The feeling where you think “oh shit, this is stupid

or

fu%* it, YOLO

This feeling happened to me the other day while I was in Freeport in the Bahamas.

We drove about 30 minutes out into the middle of no where. I mean literally out in the middle of nowhere. We were driving down a main road one minute and then we ended up driving off-road down this super narrow path (you’ll see in the video).

About 10 minutes of driving down this road that was all rocky and broken up, good thing we had a truck!

All of a sudden my buddy who is driving STOPS the car and says we’re here!

I look around and see nothing much…

except for another little path cleared out.

I immediately started walking towards the path and continued walking down the path until BAM there’s a huge hole in the earth.

I look down into the hole and sure enough theres water down there that is crystal clear. You can see something that looks like a wood platform that appears to be about 5 feet below the water. After jumping I learned that the wood structure was about 30 feet down under the water but because it was so clear that you can see so deep.

A few minutes later my friend who has been there many times before jumps in. Then it comes up to my turn… I walk over to the edge while holding my GoPro and said “fu&* it! YOLO!” and jumped in.

Yes, that feeling was running through my entire body but I faced my fear directly. I jumped.

and DAMN was it awesome. For 2 seconds you’re in free fall and then you hit the water to some of the most refreshing, although chilly, water that I’ve ever been in. It woke me up and made me feel alive and there is no feeling in the world like conquering your fear and then feeling the success of conquering your fear.

When is the last time that you conquered your fear? What was it?

Swimming With Stingrays at Stingray City in Cayman Islands

 

The other day we went to Stingray City here in the Cayman Islands and I had the opportunity to swim around with them, hold them, give them some kisses and even get a back massage from one of them… this was all without buying this particular stingray a drink or anything.

Definitely one of the cheapest dates I’ve been on.

haha but this honestly was an extremely cool experience. You would never guess that the creature that killed Steve Irwin would be so friendly. We learned how and why Steve was killed by one of these stingrays and it was because he jumped onto the back of the stingray from behind and surprised it.

Naturally, the stingray was defending itself and whipped its tail around to kill him.

At Stingray City, they have been feeding the rays in this area for over 50 years and these particular stingrays are so used to people arriving with food that they have gotten used to being around them.

If any of you have ever been to Stingray City or Rum Point here in the Cayman Islands, you may have seen Stinky swimming around all the boats. He’s a pretty horny dolphin so they made sure everyone was firmly planted on the ground lol.

Stingray City was definitely a fun little adventure and seeing the stingrays up close and personal was something I hadn’t done before. Definitely a fun adventure!

Costa Rica Sunset

Costa Rica Sunset

 

So I decided to take my camera out to get some pictures of the sunset and ended up deciding just to record it.

Why would I record it instead of just getting a picture?

Well, many of you have not been down here yet to see a Costa Rica sunset and it’s absolutely beautiful. So I decided to do the next best thing, which was to record the sunset (It’s about 7 mins long) and get the sounds and the entire feel of what it’s like to sit on the beach with your toes in the sand, the sounds of the waves crashing and the beauty of the sun setting over the ocean.

Have you seen any beautiful sunsets? Where was it?
