How many ‘Blog Idea’ posts have you read while still looking at a blank screen and feeling like giving up blogging for eternity?
I know have seen a thousand post ideas and I’ve never used a single one of them. Maybe you do, but I think letting other people choose what you should post isn’t the best solution to the blinking cursor because I don’t feel the passion or drive when writing a post idea someone else came up with.
So, why not still come up with an original, unique idea but just have help coming up with the idea? Sound good?
Welcome To ‘How To Find Inspiration For Your Blog Posts!’
Places To Find Inspiration
There’s Inspiration everywhere. Whether it’s in your home, a snippet of a conversation or in your back garden, you’ll find ideas in every place you can imagine.
Getting fresh air gives your brain fresh ideas! Go in your garden, on the street, to the park and take in your surroundings. Snap some pictures, write a poem about the weather, give some tips on how to cope with a particular season or even create a post about your favourite things!
Other blogs, websites and articles are great sources of inspiration for your blog. I’m not saying copy people posts but maybe add a twist, think of an alternative, or give a different opinion! Make sure you’re not pirating someone’s work and ideas!
Dreaming and Sleeping
Sleeping always helps. Maybe it will just come to you after a good rest, or while you’re sleeping your brain stumbles across many ideas. Sleeping on it always helps.
Friends and Family
Talking to people lets your brain see another perspective of life. Maybe just a word will spark an explosion of ideas and fireworks. They may be able to give you some advice on what to post or crack a joke that might inspire a great blog post!
Read, watch, listen. Grab a book, go to the cinema, pop your headphones to listen to a podcast, audiobook or even music. Let your brain fill up with exciting new ideas.
Turning your inspiration into the best blog post
Twist it up
Make it yours. Don’t crack the same jokes or say the same things. Get out of your comfort zone and add a unique twist to make your post new, fresh and exciting!
Share the experience
Make it personal. Share your thoughts and experience on whatever you want. Let your readers enjoy a friendly experience with their favourite blogger!
Make a tutorial
Make it useful. How did you make that bookmark? Is that frame in your room worth sharing? Could your bullet journal give a few tips for fellow bloggers? Create a ‘how-to’ post to share your knowledge!

Make it helpful.Don’t you just love your new stationery? Or maybe that book? Oh, and are you just in love with that new make-up kit? Review a product or even your holiday, season and gifts so others know what you think!
