25 Awesome Blog Post Ideas
You've heard me talk before about how fun and challenging it is being a blogger. It's an excellent way to sell a product, enhance your writing, and find a way to release all that creative energy. So what's a blogger to do when all that creative steam runs out?
Well good news blogger babes! I've got 25 blog post ideas to keep your creative juices flowing and help you when you're stuck.
So let's begin:
1. What I'm Wearing
This is a personal favorite of mine. As a fashion blogger it's only natural to show off my style. This is a great way to give your readers a more personal experience with you. Because it's all about connecting, right?
2. What's In My Makeup Bag/Tutorial
Tell us what's in your bag! What magic tricks do you have that that you could teach your readers? Filming a tutorial is another way to create great content and show how to get ready quickly or do something cool!
3. Share a Story
Everyone's got a story, what's yours? Share something funny, embarrassing, or what got you into blogging!
4. Create a DIY Project
If you've got the creative gene in you, create a cool DIY to share with your readers. You could even recreate ones that I've done here.
5. Make a Wish List Collage
Wish List collages are a great way to round up your favorite picks from around the internet right now. A great way of doing this is focusing on one subject like suede, copper home items, or boots. With Christmas right around the corner, wish lists are a great way to show what you've got your eye on or what to gift certain family members.
6. Do a Shopping Haul
Whenever you go on a massive shopping spree, show your readers what you got! You could do this as a collage or as a vlog. Plus you can give your thoughts on why you bought it or your thoughts on the store.
7. Interview Another Blogger
Interviews are a great way to not only enhance another person's blog but connect with other people. I've done a few blogger interviews (Annie, Kate, and Ruthie) and they are so great for reader involvement.
8. Create a List of Sources
This is great for bloggers because it holds us credible and helps teach other bloggers some great resources to use. It could be a simple post that lists everything you use or a more extensive one.
9. Review an Item
Blogger outreach is one of my main sources of passive income for the blog. Reviewing an item not only gives your readers a personal outlook on a certain item but most times brands will repost your post, Instagram picture, or retweet on Twitter. So not only is this a great "lazy" day post but it can actually increase traffic to your site.
10. Reuse an Old Post
As you begin blogging, your older posts that aren't up to your personal code can certainly be reused again. Simply redo your images or rewrite certain portions. I've been planning to do this with quite a few of my older DIY projects and posting them on Pinterest. It's a win-win because you've reconnected your new followers with old content and can create new followers through Pinterest.
11. Give A Home Tour
Home tours are an amazing way to show your readers what your life is like. So get our your camera and create a simple home tour!
12. Create a Guide to (city, product, ect.)
What great way to showoff your city than by providing a guide! Show your readers what's special about your city and the best places to eat, see, drink, and do! You can even create a guide to provide for free to your readers. This is another way to bring in traffic to your blog!
13. Film a Vlog
Vlogs are extremely popular among beauty bloggers and are growing among other bloggers as well. Create a vlog about any topic you like that sticks close to your brand. I plan on doing a vlog after we move into our new home!
Surveys are a great way to check in with your readers and see how your blog is doing. See what areas they like, what could have more improvement, and see how they respond to new ideas or changes you have. Survey Monkey is an excellent and easy to use survey site and can be easily integrated into your blog!
15. A Best of Post
Now that the holidays are approaching, this is a great time to round up your best of posts from the year. I plan on doing a few round ups of my favorite outfits, DIYs, and finds from the year. Plus this is an excellent way to reuse old blog posts and drive traffic back to older posts.
16. Giveaway or Competition
Teaming up with a brand for a giveaway not only brings in additional traffic to your site and social media but a chance to supply your readers with something fantastic!
17. A Link Round Up
This is something that I do on a weekly basis which is rounding up my favorites links from the week. The Internet is so full of fun things and information is almost impossible to keep up. As you look around the Internet each week, grab links that catch your attention and share them with your readers.
18. Your Favorite Piece of Clothing
Do you have a favorite pieces of clothing? Well share it! Tell your readers what your favorite pieces of clothing is and how to style it. Who knows, you may even come up with a couple of new ways to wear it for yourself!
19. Day to Night Look
Have a favorite day to night look? Show your readers! Show us how you can take your office look from super boss lady to night when you're ready to drink cocktails and dance the night away!
20. Your Tips to a Successful Blog
One of the best things about blogging is connecting and sharing with others. What has made your blog so successful or what tips do you have that has grown your social media?
21. Your Favorite Recipe
Everyone has a favorite go-to recipe that's easy to make or provides some serious comfort (Mine is a Mac n' Cheese grilled sandwich!). Share with your readers your favorite recipe!
22. Write About Your Process
Each of us how are own process when it comes to writing. What special rituals do you practice in order to write a blog post?
23. Create and Share a Free Resource
Remember how I said everyone likes freebies? Create a free resource to give to your readers! Want to do double duty here for some serious traffic? Include your freebie when your readers sign up for your email newsletter! I've done something similar here where I provide my new readers with a worksheet to help take their blog to the next level!
24. Create a Blog Series
Have you ever wanted to do a blog series on a particular subject? Well do it! One day a week focus on a different part of that subject. Even if it's making the perfect cup of coffee, create a series! Take what you're passionate about and creating a mean blog series. Then create a cool graphic on Canva to share on Pinterest each week!
25. Create an Infographic
If you have any kind of InDesign or Illustrator skills, provide a cool infographic! These also drive a larger amount of traffic to blogs on Pinterest than a simple photo. So create something amazing and useful! If you don't have mad Adobe skills, you can always use Canva which is my favorite tool to use to create great graphics easily.
