We all have those moments where we have writers block and it isn’t easy to come up with new or original ideas for blog posts. Or maybe you are looking for different ways to engage with your audience and share more about you? If you are looking for some inspiration I have collated a list of 15 blog post ideas which may help. Keep reading to find out more.
#1 Interview Someone
An interview is a great way to add something a little different to your blog. I love reading these type of posts to get to know people better. You could do an interview with yourself to share more with your readers or interview your fellow bloggers. My friend Stef from Scottish Stef’s Nails interviewed me a while ago for her blog and it was a lot of fun.
Share your favourite’s with your readers. This could be monthly, yearly or one off posts and could cover a variety of different areas. For example, although my blog focuses on beauty products from time to time I also share other favourites too such as food, books and candles.
Love makeup or craft? Why not try writing up a guide/tutorial for your readers to follow so they can re-create it.
#4 Share your experiences
This is a wide area and could cover a whole host of different blog post ideas from experiences within the blogging world, life or more specific topics. This is a great way to engage with your readers as it gives them a chance to find out a little more about you. Given the individual nature of this type of blog post it also gives you the opportunity to add something unique to your blog and personal to you.
There’s always tags floating around the internet which will give you a list of questions to answer. These can be a great way to add something different to your blog. It’s also fun to take part in these and compare your views to other people.
If you have an interesting collection of something such as makeup or other items you can write it in a single or series of blog posts.
#7 Share your bucket list
A craze which has been around for a while is to have a bucket list. This is basically just a list of things you want to do within a certain time period. I love reading these and seeing how everyone’s goals in life differ. There is no right or wrong way to do this as everyone has different ambitions and goals.
#8 Wish Lists
These are really fun posts to create and I love reading them. My favourites are obviously fashion and beauty related but this can be applied to any area you are passionate about.
#9 Share your favourite bloggers/You Tubers
It’s great discovering new blogs and You Tubers and I think it’s so lovely when I see posts like this. Spread the word of the people you love to watch/read. It’s great to be part of this community and it’s great to see fellow bloggers supporting each other.
#10 Food Recipes
This one depends on the niche of your blog but if suitable maybe add some fun food related posts into the mix. These can be tutorials, recipes and simply foods you are loving at the moment.
#11 Holiday/Travel experiences
If your blog is more travel or lifestyle related why not try sharing some of your travel and holiday experiences with your readers? It’s a fun way for people to learn about new places around the world and there’s nothing better than word of mouth recommendations.
#12 Blogging Stories
Again, this is a wide area so you could write a whole host of posts on this topic. Maybe think about what first got you into blogging? What you love about it? Tips/tricks you have learnt along the way?
#13 Start a series
I love reading series on blogs as it draws me back to find out more each time a new blog post is written. This can include anything such as Top 5 Lipsticks, books you have been reading recently or recipe of the week. Since this topic is so versatile you can cover anything you like. The world is your oyster!
#14 Get to know you
This suggestion is similar to number 1 but instead of an interview type post with specific questions why not just tell your readers a little more about the person behind the blog?
#15 Favourite Apps
Lastly, everyone these days is either glued to a smart phone or tablet and using the thousands of apps available to us daily. Share your favourites with your readers!
