15 Things to Post {when you’re out of ideas}

15 things to post

 

Let’s face it.  It happens to all of us at some point in our blogging journey.  We get bloggers brain, when we can’t think of a single thing to blog about.  While some might suggest that it means you just sit it out and don’t blog, while the die-hard bloggers say you think of something and get to blogging.  For those die-hards, here’s a list of things to blog about that you might not have thought of before.

1.  Love story.  Tell readers about how you and your spouse first met.  Where did you go?  Were you immediately smitten by him or did he have to grow on to you?  How did you know he was the one?  Of course pictures of you back then are fun to share as well.

2.  Instagram.  I’m very visual as are most bloggers.  Share a few of your favorite pictures from Instagram and tell your readers the context of the picture.  Readers love to hear the back story to pictures.

3.  Personal favorites.  A round up of your favorites (bloggers, favorite places to eat, online stores, apps, etc.)

4.  Reader comment.  Dedicate an entire post to responding to a comment left by a reader.  You may want to keep the reader anonymous, but if you choose to share who the reader is for the sake of giving her a shot out, be sure and get permission.

5. Nightstand.  Your nightstand is usually covered with items you use or need before bed or when you wake up.  Take a picture of your nightstand and describe the items there.

6. A day in the life.  Your life.  Believe it or not, you’d be surprised to know just how many readers are interested in knowing the basics of what you do on a daily basis. Tell readers what a typical day looks like.  Include products you use, food you eat, etc.

7.  Recipe.  Share a recipe that you’ve successfully made, are planning to make, or only dream of making.  Tell readers why you like this recipe.  If you’re going to cook the recipe, be sure to take pictures along the way.

8.  Workspace.  You’ve seen it before and chances are you love it.  Maybe it’s just me but I love to see how people organize their desks to optimize space and cuteness.  Tell what inspired you and what were absolute must haves with your workspace.  Include pictures.  If you incorporated any DIYs into this workspace, you can write another post on how you created the DIY.

9.  Goals. What are you goals for the rest of the year.  How close are you to getting there?  What are the biggest obstacles, and opportunities to reaching your goal?

10. Burnout.  How do you cope with blogger burnout or lack of inspiration.  Tell readers if there are other bloggers, networks or groups you go to for inspiration.

11.  Solicit feedback.  Tell your readers how much you value them and ask them to give you feedback on how to make your blog better.  Follow through with incorporating some of those suggestions as well as responding to comments.

12.  Why did you start blogging?  Tell readers what your blogging journey has been and why blogging is important to you.

13.  Superstars.  Be it Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter or Bloglovin we all have our favorite accounts to follow.  Tell readers who you’re following and why you love them so much.

14.  Road trip.  Okay, maybe you don’t do roadtrips, but what was the most memorable trip you’ve gone on.  Tell your readers about why this trip was so memorable and of course all the funny or enlightening moments that happened along the way.

15.  Casual conversation. Whether you know it or not, there are tons of blog topics found in the casual conversations we have on a daily basis.  Tell your readers about an interesting conversation you recently had.  It may be a challenge to find pictures that match the subject matter, but give it a shot.

Hope this is helpfu!

  1. Love this, thanks! I have had a very busy summer with it being the first summer with 2 kids home from school (an infant and 8 yr old) and when I did have a chance to write I seemed to have writers block!
