Google Trends - http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends
Google trends is often the most overlooked keyword research tool by many. I always use or check this Google tool everytime want something that is quite easy to write about but can give me enourmous traffic in such short amount of time or with minimal effort.
If you will check Google trends, you will see a lot of terms or keywords that is hot and trending at Google search right now. But don't jump and write immediately something about those big bolded words displayed in there because you might end up competing for a phrase that has been populated by news authorities. Try checking out the Related Searches of each term and target them or use them as your post title. They are long tails which might be give you traffic in every little ways.
