5 Ways To Conceive Blog Post Ideas

Quote of the day:
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. -Milton Berle

Does it ever seem like you lack ideas for your blog posts? As if every other blog you know seem to churn out great posts all the time? Well you are not alone. Thinking of a blog post can be such a herculean task. I used to have the same problem. I say used to -because I figured out a long time ago to blog about things that I LIKE!. Does that make sense? Yes indeed. And here I present to you 5 blog post ideas that you can write about.

1. Just Write Anyway
I've had many unplanned posts. And I'm sure most of you have too. Whenever I feel the urge to write, I create a new post and go from there. For example, my last poetry post was a spur-of-the-moment material. So whenever you have the urge to write something, just write anyway.

2. Share photos/hobbies
If you are into photography, or have recently come back from a vacation, sharing photos will make for a great blog post content. Not only will you show off your skills, but also you'll be able to talk about the meaning behind your images, and not forget your travel experience.

Or better yet, it could just be a hobby of yours to photograph animals, plants, buildings, and others. Its definitely a great way to share things that you enjoy. You could also be into art and crafts -whatever it is will help you reach out to your readers.

3. Review something
You can review a book, a movie, a product, or a fancy place you've recently visited. It is a good way to to reflect, analyse and share what you experienced with your readers.

4. Guest posts, hosting and Interviews
You can invite your readers to submit posts, or host a blogger on your blog, or go as far as interviewing someone who you feel will add value to your blog and readers. This is a good way to create content, and can turn out to be a win-win for everyone involved.

5. Blog about your Ideas
Put your ideas down, or make a list of things that you like/dislike, talk about things in your life that affect you, research topics on the internet, show others how to do or make something, write a poem or a story....these are all great ideas for you to create a post.

In conclusion, while it's not always easy to create fresh content at all times, finding a scope you feel comfortable with will make things a lot easier.

  1. Good suggestions all; I do struggle at times, these ideas will help me take a fresh look at my writing.

  2. These are all very good ideas......between the news and one's interests and things we come across from day to day, there is no shortage of material. Also, each person has the most AMAZING story, so we are surrounded by stories waiting to be told.

  3. I think I do all of those.
    And no, I never lack for blog post ideas.

  4. @Jacquelineand....: If it will help you start afresh, then that'll be great. Many thanks for visiting!

    @Sherry Blue Sky: Yes I agree, there are a million things to write about out there. Thank you for taking time to stop by!

    @Melissa (Books and Things): Hello and thanks for visiting!

    @Alex J. Cavanaugh: That's good to know sir. More power to you, thanks for stopping by!

  5. Wonderful tips. My post today was just keeping what came to mind.

  6. I think every point of your tips is really important to do a good blog post

  7. I just write about my day so there is always something to say. : )
    These are great tips though.

  8. Good ideas specially the first one, just write for the love of it ~

  9. All great points. Sometimes my best posts are the ones that are unplanned; just spur of the moment!

  10. Love these ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!


  11. lol I'm 201 posts ahead. So nah, I never lack for ideas haha

  12. Or you can do what I do at times and share jokes that others have sent me. Okay, just kidding because that's not original at all.

    One thing I do is Wednesdays Question. It's been a really good way to get lots of comments about a subject.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  13. Wonderful ideas. I think its so great to reveal bits of yourself in your blog - makes things real.

  14. @Gail: Hello and thank you for visiting!

    @mundo de caty: Greetings to you and thanks for stopping by!

    @Happyone: Good idea about writing about your day. Its kind of you to visit again!

    @Grace: I agree. Many thanks indeed for visiting!

    @Plowing Through Life (Martha): That's great. The unplanned ones tend to be more memorable. Nice of you to stop by!

    @Couture Carrie: Thanks for visiting!

    @Patt Hatt: You are a trail blazer, so hats off to you. Cheers!

    @Sandee: Ah how could I forget to mention that, yes indeed. Picking a theme such as your 'Wednesday Question' is a great idea. Many thanks for stopping by!

    @Chris Lally: Hello and thank you for visiting, much appreciated!

  15. These are good ideas. I sometimes run out of ideas to do a blog post. Luckily, I have my daughters to back me up when this happens, and they can do a post. I really admire those who blog all by themselves. :~)


  16. Brilliant ideas! Thank you, Blogoratti!
    Enjoy your day!
    Peace :)

  17. point4 has been so helpful to helps me drive traffic my way especially when i interview blog readers.
    bloggers should try and make do of this list.

  18. Often we begin with only the "title"..."Hello...."
    ... go see what stored image i find "interesting" ( and we have so Many folders of these images)... pick a few (sometimes just One) ... and have an "idea for a post...
    there is more than a bit of "randomness" at my "Crypt", good Sir...

  19. I just write about my life or random things that strike my fancy. My blogging's turned into a nice historical record of the last six years of my life.

    1. I just bookmarked this page...thanks for sharing
      Nma's Blog 

  20. Wonderful ideas - thank you! Also, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments. Much appreciated.

  21. This will be useful for bloggers.

  22. Good tips. I just start and see what happens every day. Valerie

  23. Interesting suggestions, I hope a lot people will read this because some bloggers are writing only about weather ;-)

  24. Great ideas there. I cheat. I read other people's blogs for inspiration! Whenever I find myself writing a long comment on someone's blog I extend it into a full post!

  25. Thank you for the great inspiration on how to come up with blog post ideas! I do have lots of ideas in my head but I hardly find the time to write them down. I need to organize myself better so I can get back into blogging more :)
    Have a great rest of the week!

  26. Just write anyway is a great idea especially with poetry. Don't be afraid of putting it on the blog and then tidying it up, but not too much so as to lose the original impetus, over the next day or two. Poetry comes to fruition when it is revisited after a short period of absence. The poetic words spring from the unconscious and cry to be in the poem. The ordinary words of the original can be replaced by and by to good effect.

  27. I love pictures a lot and fashion and I totally need to start living with the write anyway idea. Great post.


  28. I used to struggle for blog topics too, but now that I have 3 structured posts a week, it's pretty easy. I like to occasionally surprise people with an extra, random one every now and then too.

  29. Even bloggers can get writer's block. I haven't written a story for ages but I keep my hand in with the blogs.

  30. Ideias maravilhosa

  31. Interesting blog post ideas

  32. Thank you so much for this sharing and all tips. Just like you have said, it will be much easier.

  33. I don't blog every day, but not usually for a lack of ideas. I have a difficult time fitting blogging into my day sometimes. You always have such great ideas, so maybe sometime you will write a post about finding/making time to blog. ;)

  34. Such an inspiring post :) I should really start putting more book reviews on my blog.

  35. Reviews are always a great idea, I love reading them!

  36. I think bloggers "try" too hard.

    Just sit down, and imagine a friend being across from you... Chatting... Sharing a cup of coffee... Etc.

    And type, what you would then. :-)

    It brings out the-true-you. And isn't that what we want, in blogging?

    Just an idea...


    1. Well said Tessa
      I completely agree with you.

  37. all very good ideas and I have done them all, but what I think I lack was really the will to actually do the work, sometimes you can dislike all your ideas so there are many blank pauses in between blogging which I think it's normal.

    great list. there's another idea - make lists - sometimes I don't stay to read the long posts but lists I always read.

    have a lovely day.

  38. Photos & book reviews work best for me. Politics would as well but I avoid it like the plague on my blogs.....

  39. Sometimes, I post a photo and just stare at it and write the first thing that comes to mind.

  40. All bloggers need to read this.. Thanks for sharing

  41. Oh yea I can defo relate. You're so right about all these pointers - Very helpful. Have a good day, Sir. :)

  42. I take pictures all the time and they start my blog, which is just personal stuff. My blog is like a long letter--LOL! Great ideas. Always love when you visit. :)

  43. awesome!!!!
    "share your passion" isthemost important in blogging... because thanks I write or take pics I know a lot of interesting person with passion like mine
    greatpost my dear! :)

  44. Those are all good ideas. It's important to write what you enjoy and are comfortable with.

  45. Spot on
    Very good tips

  46. Thank you so much for your thoughts on my last post! I know it’s a heavy topic and this is why your comment meant a lot to me : )

  47. Great advice! Thank you!!
    Love, Teresa

  48. I typically #1,2 & 5. I do like reading different kinds of blogs, with or without pictures. There is always something to learn.

  49. I very much like these suggestions, thank you! I tend to have a pattern to my posts, certain things I do on certain days that usually have to do with my art, but I do have some days that are just whatever I feel like and I appreciate the ideas!

  50. Nice ones :)
    Even if I am all for reviews :D But I do like to post photos on Sat

  51. Thank you the tips are good! I have a list with many, many blog themes and if I ever don't know what to post I will have a look on this post :)

  52. I can relate to this post quite well. Nice one boss... You can follow back on gfc

  53. These are such great ideas!
    I like the idea of reviewing books and even sharing your photography.

  54. Yeah... it's possible I struggle with blog ideas. Maybe. Occasionally ;)

  55. Great ideas! Educating and wonderful suggestions. Thanks for sharing this! for suspense stories

  56. Wonderful suggestions. Sometimes I think I have nothing to blog about, but I really do.

  59. Amei a postagem

  60. Those are some great tips. The "Just write anyway" is often the best way, since often there are things lurking in the back of our minds, but we don't know because we're stuck on the "I have nothing to write" loop. :-)

  61. Great ideas! I definitely need to step my blogging game up :p x

  62. Great tips!! I think I should share the pictures I take more often

  63. Thank you so much for these tips. We all have had those days and I will remember these tips when the need arises. xo

  64. Wow! Think I've finally managed to get a comment on...well I hope it goes on, anyway!
    Yes, a fabulous collection of tips...I especially like the "Just write anyway" one.
    I often do just that! :)

    Have a great day! :))

  69. Great suggestions. Thanks for sharing!

  70. Good suggestions. I've been considering this myself as I'd like to do more Writer Reference work and things like it, but haven't come up with much yet.

  71. good am really going to put these into practice. Thanks for sharing

  72. Great tips here! My own carving out time to put up any one of my contents. Got quite a number. Sigh...

    Thanks for sharing once again! :)

  73. These are lots of good ideas and I have found that when blog,posts are more personal, more people seem to comment. Blogging on a daily basis is difficult as is keeping us with other blog posts. Thanks for your comments on ours.

  74. Excellent suggestions all. Thanks!

  75. I've run into this issue a LOT. Initially, topics came so easily to me. I think I have it together for now, however. I have posts scheduled for the next 2 days. That's good for me.

  76. Some great ideas here for the 'stuck' days... some I'd already thought of, use... some I hadn't. Thanks for sharing :)

  77. Great ideas! I will defo bare some in mind!

  78. Thanks for the suggestions...I do struggle a lot! When I do make a post know that it's been sitting for days as "draft"...will implement your suggestions x_x

  79. The caption got me and I can't agree less. It makes blogging easy for you and it doesn't have to be lengthy

  80. hey
    i agree with you, i really good way to start blog and share your thoughts no matter what people think. Good article
    thank you
