The hardest part about blogging is when you just can’t think of anything to write about it. It happens to me a lot and it is so frustrating. However, there are many things you can do to help find inspiration. In fact, being stuck for a post idea inspired this very post. So if you’re stuck and have no idea what you could write about for your next post, I hope this helps you.
Shop Your Stash |
Probably the most obvious way of finding blog post ideas is to have a look through your makeup and skincare collections and find something you haven’t reviewed or maybe you could come up with a round up of products for example, ‘Your Top 5 Mascaras’ and so on. If you like to post about fashion, you could even have a look through your wardrobe and see if any ideas come to mind such as ‘Wardrobe Staples’ or maybe even a roundup of your favourite outfits?
Your Favourite Blogs |
Reading other people’s blogs is a good way to get some inspiration. Obviously, don’t go in and copy posts, that’s a big no-no but I do find I could be half way through reading someone’s post and I’ll have a lightbulb moment and a post idea will come to mind. If this happens, remember to write it down somewhere so you don’t forget (it’s happened to me many times!). For example, my Brands I Want To Try More From was inspired by reading blogs whilst I was struggling to know what to write.
In Day To Day Life |
If you like to write lifestyle posts, this is a good one. Been to a restaurant recently and absolutely loved it? Write about it. Travelled abroad in the last few months? That’s a good post and one I’ll be sure to read it! Or if you have something personal you’d like to write about, do. Don’t be scared what people will think, chances are someone will probably relate to it.
Go Shopping |
I obviously don’t recommend this every time you’re struggling for post ideas! Well, unless you’re a millionaire and can afford to! But if you can and want to, go out and treat yourself to a few bits. We all deserve it once in a while..
Your Wishlists |
Every time I struggle to think of a post idea, I create a wishlist. They are fun to create even though my wishlist seems to get bigger as I create them which isn’t ideal. There are so many topics you can create a wishlist for from beauty and skincare to homeware and travel. So now you know next time I post a wishlist, I was struggling for post ideas..
