How To Find Blog Post Ideas.

12 comments
I have a little task for you to take part in if you ever find yourself lost and confused about what to write about. When you really enjoy blogging, it can be pretty frustrating when your mind is blank and you have no new content to publish. It can often seem as well that every blogger and their dog is churning out unique ideas, while you're sat scratching your head wondering where on earth these ideas come from. Is this sounding familiar at all? Yes, I thought so! As I write this post, I have been having one of those days where my brain just says 'No sorry, not today' and I often find this frustrating especially when I have spare time to myself to just lose myself in my writing and get some posts written. I often write most of my blog posts in my bedroom, curled up with the music or TV on; so as I sat in my bedroom I decided to look around my bedroom and see what ideas I could come up with. Task - Look around the room you are in right now and find as many ideas to write about as possible.

 
Here I sit on my bed, typing away. I have gorgeous bird print bedding I bought from Dunelm with matching curtains - I could show you pretty pictures and link to it - who knows, you may love it as much as I do? Under my bed, I have a drawer where unused things get shoved into until I remember all about them a few months later. Inside, I have books, scrapbooks, magazines and stationery - all things I can use to find some ideas. Next to my bed we have my bedside table - I could write about organising the drawers, decorating your bedside, what's in my drawers etc. My wardrobe can bring a whole range of ideas. There are outfits I could put together - I may not necessarily have to be wearing them, I could just arrange them prettily and voila! I can also talk about wardrobe organisation, clearing out, what to keep and what to throw etc.
 
Besides my wardrobe lies my latest project; my scrapbook. I have found this inspires me to get blogging, even if it is just to create wish lists. I can also write posts about my scrapbook, showing ideas and also showing what's in my scrapbook. Next up we have my beauty storage - maybe I could tidy it up for once and picture it? Show you my collection of nail polishes, shower gels etc. Looking around my room, I also have lots of little trinkets, photos and ornaments - each showing my personality - I could share this with you and see if we have similar tastes. Last but not least, I have my laptop. It's certainly giving me grief lately what with it's keyboard freezing every day but it's a big source of inspiration for me. I can talk to other bloggers, find new beauty products, read blogs - all my favourite things which inspire me to write.
 
What do you do when you get stuck for ideas? x

  1. Every time I get an idea for something to write about, I write it on a list on my computer. :)

  2. Great post - I love the idea of just looking around and seeing all the things you can post about! I always have a little notepad with me when ideas come to me. I also find that reading other blogs gives me loads of inspo :) xx

  3. I often get stuck for blog post ideas too! If I'm really struggling I scroll through Bloglovin' popular pages to see what posts people enjoy which usually gives me a boost of inspiration! I also write down ideas on my iPhone when I'm out & about so I can refer to them at a later stage (:

  4. I get so stuck for ideas, and I often feel really discouraged as I feel like nobody reads what I write anyway. You're right though, in one room alone there could be hundreds of ideas for a blog post. I need to start writing again.

  7. Great post - you'd never know there was so much inspiration around you. I have a notes app on my phone that I use to keep post ideas, so I can make a quick note of them whenever they pop up in my head and I can use them for later xx

  9. I think we all get stuck in a blogging rut from time to time, a blogging block if you like! My notes section in my phone is full of ideas for future posts. I like the idea of just sitting in your room and looking around you to take inspiration! Thanks for this lovely post :)

  11. I agree, when you start to approach blogging in that kind of context it's not too hard to come up with the initial idea, then all you have to do it write it down and make a post :)
