Things You Can Do When You’re Stuck for Blog Post Ideas
Wanting to blog but not knowing what to blog about is so frustrating. You really want to write but you just can’t settle on a topic or a title or anything. There have been so many times when I have been sitting at my computer or on the sofa, wracking my brain for ideas because I so desperately want to write some content for my blog. Other times I have so many ideas that I can’t write them down quick enough. I think it’s just one of those things that you have to accept as a writer. I’ve found myself in this situation many times and I have a few things that I do that most of the time seem to work for me. I find inspiration is key when it comes to blog post ideas, find some inspiration and 9 times out of 10 the ideas come flooding in.
Pinterest is usually the first place I go when I’m looking for inspiration. You can literally type in ‘blog post ideas’ and tons of pins will come up. Pinterest is great resource for bloggers, not just for inspiration for blog posts but for pinning and promoting your content too. You can also find some really helpful pins on how to create graphics on Canva, basic HTML and how to use affiliate links.
Reading blogs is great for giving you ideas of your own. Reading other people’s blogs always makes me feel so inspired to blog. Sometimes it’s not even that I’ve seen a blog post that I would like to do my own spin on or anything, just that reading great content has made me feel so keen to write that the ideas just start flooding in all on their own.
Sitting down with my bullet journal and having a brainstorming sesh can really help when I’m stuck for blog post ideas. Usually I think of posts I would like to read and then write them down. Other times I think back to posts I’ve seen and how I might put my own spin on them. So many times I read a blog post and it will give me an idea simply because I would have wrote it a completely different way or maybe covered a different aspect of the same topic.
This might seem like an odd one but for me being stuck for ideas can usually be cured by a massive boost of inspiration and motivation by seeing other bloggers blogging. Just seeing others absolutely nailing it makes me really motivated to write new content and get it out there and scrolling through Twitter can be great for that.
I hope this helps you find some blog post ideas.
