Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to mention some amazing blogging achievements I had over the past month. I hit 200 followers!! Yayy!!! So thank you to my amazing followers for that!! I also reached 100 posts! Thank you to my readers for inspiring me to write so much! And Mahriya guest posted on my blog!!! Thank you Mahriya! (Read her post on how to grow readers HERE!)

Moving on, most of us have experienced that feeling when we have absolutely nothing to write about and we sit looking at the blank screen in desperation. No ideas, no inspiration, not even a tiny bit of insight on what to write… Well, here are 5 ways to help you find inspiration for blog posts!

1. Use your surroundings / situations

If you traveled to a great place then describe your experience. If you met a friend after a long time then describe your feelings – maybe someone else can relate. If a holiday is coming up then write a post related to that. For example you can write about what to dress up as on Halloween or some great Christmas cake recipes. Or you can get inspired from books, movies, songs etc. You can write about a concept or idea you liked in them or you can even write reviews about them.

2. Write about current topics

Write about what’s currently trending or about social issues because that will keep your post fresh and relevant. You can use google alerts or trending topics from different social media to help you. Another thing to try is writing about controversies. Write from a different point of view than what everyone has. Put your own twist on mundane everyday things and make them more interesting.

3. Read other posts

Read other blog posts or scour the web for posts that you like. If you read something that you like then try to work with a similar idea. But DO NOT copy the original  post. Work with the idea, put your own spin on it and turn it into something new.

4. Ask other people

If you are in need of inspiration ask other bloggers about how they get their ideas. Or even better, ask your readers about what they want to read. If you have an idea about what content your readers are looking for then you can write accordingly.

5. Use the eureka moment

All of us have moments when we go “wow THAT would make a great blog post!” But these ideas may come at the most inconvenient times. Maybe we’re taking a test, or doing a presentation for work, or maybe we wake up in the dead of the night with a great idea. Usually these ideas are the best ones but they come at the random-est times and we have to learn to use them. Write it down, make a note on your phone or make a funny sentence which contains your idea so you can remember it. However tiny the idea may be you can develop these into great blog posts.

So, do you use these ways to find ideas to blog about? How else do you find blogging ideas? Was this post helpful? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time!
