One option that many people don't think about is to use an article template. An article template gives you a general idea and then you have to insert the topic using the idea they suggest. For example an idea would be Methods for Saving X and a topic would be Methods for Saving Money. With most templates you will have the ability to do at least two articles from it until you can come up with more topics. The two articles would be a positive and negative or upside and downside. There are a number of places you can visit for article templates. Some of them supply free templates while others charge a fee for them. You'll want to do a Google search to see what you can find and use for your articles.
This approach tends to work better for articles that are jam packed with information and/or those that take a broad, aerial view of the topic, but it can also work with articles that are a close up view of one specific topic. For example, I've written many articles on how to create an effective resource box, and from that one very laser beamed topic I have branched off articles on extremely specific elements of that already specific topic. I assure you, no matter what your article is about, you can write about it more in depth in a new article.
