45 Blog Post Ideas

July 8, 2014
So, I was browsing Pinterest one day and came across this great post by Kay.  Kay inspired me with all of her great ideas for blog posts and invited her readers to come up with their own lists of potential blogging topics.  I'll be sure to make use both of our lists when I'm experiencing writer's block.  I've compiled a list of ideas, questions, and prompts that I've used in the past and also included ones that I want to implement for the future.

1) Write about the character you are most like (can be from a book, movie, t.v. show, play, etc) and tell us what you have in common.
2) Explain how you came up with your blog name and/or write about the meaning behind it.  Example: The Meaning Behind My Blog Name
3) Give us a tour of your favorite room in your house.
4) Recap your weekend and link up with The Rachael Way and I on Mondays for the Weekly Wrap Up.
5) Talk about where you're from.  It could be where you grew up, where you currently live, your city, your state, your country, etc.  You could include information about what your city is famous for and write about regional specialties.
6) Share your favorite recipe.
7) Open up about one of your struggles and what you've done/are doing to try to overcome it.
8) Share your current wishlist.
9) Recap one of your best trips.
10) Address Frequently Asked Questions about yourself.
11) Create a list of your top five dream destinations.  Example: 5 Dream Destinations by Courtney @ Permeating Purpose written as a guest post on my blog
12) Describe one of the best concerts you've ever gone to.
13) Recommend books, movies, and/or restaurants.
14) Review a product.
15) Tell us about some things you have learned over the years.
16) Post about what you wore to work.
17) Share how you met your significant other, best friend, or even your pet.
18) Show how you've gotten something organized, complete with before and after pictures.
19) Publish a post about what's in your purse, suitcase, makeup bag, etc.  Example: What's in My Tote Bag for Subbing?
20) Show us the last five great purchases you've made and tell why you liked them.
21) Display your all time favorite photographs you've taken on your blog and write about where/when they are from.
22) Share your blogging tips.
23) Write about the best things that have ever happened to you.
24) Compile a list of your seasonal favorites.
25) Highlight your biggest accomplishments/proud moments.
26) What is something that you've done that is out of your comfort zone?
27) What are some special traditions that you have with your family and friends?
28) Talk about one of your hobbies and explain how you got into it.
29) What is your perfect weekend getaway?
30) Spill all the details about your best birthday ever.
31) Tell about your budgeting ideas and write about how you cut corners.
32) Did you ever assemble a gift for someone that you're really proud of?  Showcase it on your blog.  It could be a gift for a friend, child, teacher, family member, mother-to-be, etc.
33) Share creative ideas for a date night or for a girls' night out.
34) What is your favorite city and why?  What can you do there?
35) Write a funny post about a project or an idea that you had that went wrong.
36) Write about the best teacher you ever had.
37) What would you do if you won the lottery?
38) Share one of your collections. Example: How Do You Measure an Obsession? by Nancy @ Neatly-Packaged
39) Blog about your style.  You could also include how it has changed over the years.
40) What is one of your usual hangout spots?  (Can be a nook at your place, your office, or a place you frequent, and so on.)
41) Talk about what you think you could improve in your life.
42) Tell about a time that you cheered someone up, or make a list of ways to brighten someone's day.
43) What are some meaningful or sentimental objects that you own?
44) Write about a time (or a few!) that you've put your foot in your mouth.
45)  Discuss your strengths and weaknesses.

If you write about any of these and want me to add them in the post as examples, I will certainly do that! :)  I'll also promote you on Twitter.  Just leave me a link to your post in the comments.
