Hands up if you’ve ever found yourself facing your usual blog post publishing deadline and you’re yet to come up with an idea for something to write about… We’ve all been there.
Sometimes the pressure of posting on time manages to crap on any creative ideas you might have had and leave you wondering why you committed to starting a blog in the first place.
I’m all for taking a break every now and again when the juices just aren’t flowing but if you’re really struggling to get back into the swing of things after a little too much time away, I’ve put together some updated blog post ideas that might be a good place to start.
A day in your life
Do you freelance like me? Are you a makeup artist? A photographer? Graphic designer? Write about a day or week in your life. Us humans are nosey and love to read behind the scenes of other people’s. It can also be really helpful for anyone thinking of pursuing a career in the same field as yours, plus it might force you to make the time you’re documenting a little more productive than usual!
You don’t have to be an expert to write a how to post. It could be something as simple as how you edit your photos or plan for the week ahead. There’ll always be someone interested in trying something new.
Something you’re feeling
Not in the ‘dear diary’ way, though if that’s what you’re feeling, don’t let me stop you. I’m talking more about being pissed off with the Instagram algorithm though or receiving a snotty email, how it made you feel and how you overcame it. Use what’s going on in your life/ business and how you feel about it to share some wisdom and experience with others.
Books you’re reading
If you’re after something a little lighter, book recommendations never get old and, as long as you’re a semi-regular reader, it’s something you’ll always have to talk about. This can extend to TV shows, podcasts and any other collections you’re currently making your way through. I’m always on the lookout for all three so if nothing else, I’ll come over and read your latest post!
Goals for the month
Writing down your goals in blog post form is a great way to hold yourself accountable. Not only might it inspire someone else to do the same but you’re way more likely to stick to them yourself if you’ve hit publish and put them out there on the internet for everyone to see.
