I am on day 16 of my 30-day blog challenge and I see that a lot of my 30-day blogging comrades are having difficulty thinking of blog ideas (myself included). I’ve put together a list of blog ideas for any blogger dealing with the dreaded writer's block.
1. If you could have lunch with one person, who would it be?
I love this idea because it tells so much about a person. Why did you choose that person? What would you talk about? Why is this person such an inspiration to you!?
2. Write a how-to!
Everyone has something they're moderately good at. Hell, you don't even have to be great at it, just be able to explain how to get started. It could be as complex as how you built your own website or as simple as how to cook your favorite meal!
3. Try something new, then blog about it!
Maybe you learned how to sew or started playing an instrument. Talk about your experience and you’ll be able to have a really great perspective as a beginner. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be an expert in the category to blog about it. We want to hear from newbies too!
4. Create a top 10 list.
Much like this post, create a list of your top 10 ideas for any category. For example, your top 10 workout songs, restaurants in your hometown… you get the gist.
5. Talk about the BIGGEST MISTAKE YOU HAVE EVER MADE
Life is full of ups and downs, but do you remember that one thing you did? The thing that if you hadn’t done, your life could be a little or completely different? Talk about that mistake, why you wish you never made it and how your fellow human can avoid it. You might just help or inspire your reader.
6. Go on an adventure and share your itinerary
I am constantly looking for fun and new things to do in Pennsylvania. Whenever I’m trying to find new camping, hiking or shopping trips, I always look for blog posts to lead me through my day. Write a detailed itinerary and review each of your destinations with pictures to prove it!
7. Publish a short story or poem
I frequently find myself jotting down poems or story ideas. Let people see what you're up to and hit that publish button!
8. Talk about where you are in life and what you got you there (good or bad)
If someone is taking the time to read your post they likely would be interested in your story. Where are you and why? Are you a college student, college opt-out, a 45-year-old mom writing this blog post from her craft room? Tell your readers about the person behind the computer.
