15 blog post ideas | get over writer’s block fast

15 Blog Post Ideas

I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately so I took a look around my WordPress drafts and blogging notebook and realized that if I would just finish all of these posts, I’d be set for months! Even though I have plenty of blog post ideas right now, writer’s block is inevitable. For those of you who are dealing with writer’s block right now, here are 15 blog post ideas to help you out. Sometimes a post prompt is all we need!

1. Home Tour.
This is the first thing that came to mind since we just purchased our own place and I’m excited to decorate. Even if you live in an apartment, show us some of your favorite areas! I know I’ve instagrammed our apartment kitchen “drink station” a few times and I love to see other bloggers’ spaces since I’m snoopy. ;)

2. Your Jewelry Box.
I’ve been meaning to photograph and write about my favorite pieces of jewelry for ages. I think it’s a great way to share your style and tell stories about the more sentimental items you own.

3. Personal Stories.
I’ve found that I get the most blog views when I share a personal story that is close to my heart. I think that personal stories are refreshing and relatable.

4. Books You’ve Read.
I’m not sure about all of you, but I’m a hardcore bookworm and am always looking for new reads. Why not share your list from this past year? Also, feel free to share books on your must-read list for 2014.

5. A Day in the Life.
These are some of my favorite posts because I get to see what a usual day looks like for some of my favorite bloggers. Be sure to take your DSLR or smartphone camera with you and snap away. Get creative and make it fun; we all love pretty photographs!

6. Pet Guest Post.
Sometimes when I get lazy, Malcolm takes over my blog. Who doesn’t like hearing from cute and furry pets?

7. Skincare Routine.
Tell us about your favorite products. How do you get ready for work? Do you switch up your routine for lady’s night out or a date with your significant other/spouse? Include your favorite washes, toners, serums, and makeup.

8. Your City.
Why not be a tourist in your own city? Take photos and show us your favorite places to explore, restaurants you can’t live without, cafes you blog at, and museums.

9. Recipes.
You can never go wrong with recipes on your blog — just make sure you have plenty of nice photographs to post, too.

10. Reverse Bucket List. 
A couple of my favorite bloggers have shared their reverse bucket lists and it’s such a great idea. Instead of documenting things you want to do, revisit everything you’ve already accomplished.

11. Tutorials.
Whether you’re a photography expert, blogging guru, or interior design star, why not share that knowledge with the rest of us? It will get your blog traffic, plus readers love pinning tutorials!

12. Mood Boards.
I consider mood boards candy for the eyes. I’m always drawn to blog posts with spectacular color palettes, textures, and items on bloggers’ wish lists. Do this for outfits, home decor, and blog designs!

13. Organizational Tips.
It’s the New Year and everyone wants to become more organized. Share your secrets with everyone!

14. Awkward & Awesome. 
Sydney from The Daybook used to document awkward and awesome moments from the week and these posts were hilarious. Plus it was always fun to hear about what she was up to.

15. Introduction Post. 
And last but not least, tell us about yourself! As your blog grows, so will your readership and it’s a smart idea to do an introduction every couple of months. Be sure to link to your most popular posts.

How do you stay inspired?

    LOVE these ideas. I actually have a couple of them in drafts already :) But like you, while I have ideas – it’s still hard to get over that hump and actually WRITE!

    Brilliant list!

  • http://www.aventurasdemariposas.blogspot.com/ Lisa

  • Kate Mothes

    This is wonderful, thanks! :D (For some reason this is the first time I’ve been able to get your blog to load in like, a week, so I’m relieved. Ha!) I keep a list similar to this on a variety of papers and Post-Its stuck to my bulletin board just in case I can’t think of anything, and you’ve given me a few more backups.

    some really great ideas on here Rachel! especially the introduction post. I know I’ve come across blogs where I felt kind of lost as to who they are, their purpose of the blog etc and I think it’d be great to get a little recap on their life. ive got lots of new followers so I should probably do something like this

  • http://heleneinbetween.com/ Helene
