Harvesting Questions for Content Ideas There's no denying it: coming up with solid topic ideas for content and linkable assets on a consistent basis is hard work. Using keyword tools to unearth keyword ideas that are proven to drive traffic is one effective and time-honored method of topic discovery. Another is using popular questions to fuel content ideation. Leveraging Q&A-driven content is a high value strategy for few reasons. Sourcing popular questions means you're targeting topics that have some level of inherent demand already, so the guesswork and much of the risk is eliminated.Problem-solving content is well-aligned with query intent, which equals a positive user experience, better engagement signals and a higher likelihood for sharing and links.An entire online empire of sites has been built on Q&A-driven content, which to me shows that the public is hungry for problem-solving content. So where and how do you find popular questions for your niche to build content around?

A List Of The Best Annual Tech Startup Events In Europe In 2013 Back in July, we made an attempt at listing the best annual tech startup events in Europe, with some included from the Middle East and Africa. It was a ‘first attempt’ and as you can see, it’s a complex patchwork of events. But in general we tried to focus on the biggest events (not weekly or monthly meet ups) which cater to an international audience (so held in English). We have also synched some of the big U.S. events which many Europeans will attend. Hopefully events organisers can use this to plan, because if there is one thing Europe needs to get better at, it’s synchronising events so that people can move easily from one to the other rather than miss out because of stupid clashes. Huge thanks to @heisenbergmedia and @AndreaLorini and @Nathalie Nuta for all their help in compiling this.

Kind of Screwed TL;DR version: Last year, I was threatened with a lawsuit over the pixel art album cover for Kind of Bloop. Despite my firm belief that I was legally in the right, I settled out of court to cut my losses. This ordeal was very nerve-wracking for me and my family, and I’ve had trouble writing about it publicly until now. Note: I posted this on Twitter and Maisel’s Facebook wall before it was deleted, but I’ll repeat it here: I understand you may have strong feelings about this issue, but please don’t harass him publicly or privately.
