When I have went out looking for article topics, I went to article directories like ezinearticles.com and did a search to see what other articles had been written on the topic I want to write about. Just reading the article titles helps to get new ideas flowing.
I go to Amazon and do a search for books written on the subject. Looking through table of contents of books helps generate ideas.
I also go to about.com and do a search there. If your topic has its own category, you can find so many article ideas just from looking at things written about it at about.com.
One other suggestion: do a search for a message board that is about your topic. People always ask questions and ask for advice on message boards. Answering those questions can be turned into an article. Also, check out the debates people have on topic-related message boards. Debates are a gold mine for article ideas.
