  1. This was a great topic, and I think this list will help a lot of bloggers out there so well done. As my blog mainly foccusses on reviews, I usually don’t have a problem in running out of ideas. But…some reviews certainly are harder to write than others. Usually I just take a small break when I can’t focus enough, sometimes an hour sometimes even a day or two. That usually helps 😊Great post! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you! The list will also help me 😊
      Breaks are always great! I used to be like I NEED to publish 3 posts a week, but that led me to not knowing what to write about so now I’m like it’s okay if I only publish 2 posts a week & it’s okay if I take a short break to focus on life.

      1. That’s the same with me as well. I really love blogging, but in order to keep loving blogging, I do not use any kind of schedules. I just blog when I feel like it. The only thing I do every day is check out other people’s posts 😊

      2. I just have a tentative schedule 😊
        You’re better than me! I would like to check people’s posts every day, but w/ me trying to finish my web dev course by the 15th I haven’t had a lot of spare time.

  2. I’m definitely saving this post to gather inspiration from later! I usually just end up writing reviews when I don’t have any ideas and I’m thinking that probably gets boring for my followers after a while. Thanks for the ideas πŸ™‚

  3. Thank you for this! Every month, I write a topic for each day, but I still find myself wanting to veer off course for something that feels β€œright” in the moment. One idea is a Friday Favorites post. I follow two other blogs RELIGIOUSLY that do it too. I talk about 5 things I’m loving from that week. It usually involves food πŸ˜‰ but also cool products, sentimental moments, and just rad stuff that made me smile. I do it every week and I like that it makes me appreciate the little things to come up with ideas for the post!

  4. I am a new blogger and I was having a hard time coming up with what exactly I want to write in my next blog. Reading the list of topic ideas you have come with has been very helpful ! Thanks for sharing 😊

  5. Great post! I’ve been blogging for almost a month now and I haven’t run out of ideas yet, but was concerned that it might happen so it’s great to read this! I’d love it if you’d have time to check out my blog and let me know what you think 😁.

    1. Thank you! Everyone experiences writer’s block at some point, but that shouldn’t be a reason to stop blogging! I recommend writing down any ideas you have (I keep a list on my phone) so you can always come back to it especially on days you have writer’s block. Also don’t push yourself too hard! Blogging should be fun & if you feel overwhelmed, take a break!

  6. Super glad I bumped into this post since I recently started blogging like legit 2 days ago and I already know the lifestyle section is gonna help quite a lot.

  7. This list is very helpful. I’m new to blogging and I’m not entirely sure what I want to add to my blog. It’s a wonderful topic, and I think it’ll help other people who just need inspiration or are new to blogging like myself. I usually just write and post my poems, however I feel like readers might get a little bored of that so I thought I’d do something involving lifestyle, books, are and my poetry. I just don’t want my blog to look unorganized or sloppy.

    1. I’m glad you found the list helpful!
      I think it’s good to have variety b/c like you said it could get boring for your readers & you’re also putting the pressure on yourself to continously write poems. Most blogs have more than 1 niche. Like I blog about beauty, books & lifestyle. When I just stuck to writing about beauty it got boring for me so now I write about pretty much whatever I want.
      So I think you should write about lifestyle, books & your poems so your readers don’t get bored & you don’t get stressed or bored.
