How I Find Inspiration For Blog Posts – 100 blog post ideas

How to Find Inspiration for Blog Posts – Plus 100+ Blog Post Ideas

If you are anything like me, then maybe you have found yourself feeling STUCK when it comes to creating new blog posts. Have you ever felt unmotivated or you lose your inspiration to write a new blog post? This happens to us all. I want to share with you ways that I get inspired and motivated to write new content, PLUS I am also sharing 100 + blog post ideas with you! Hoping these tips will help you get through your creative, writer’s block. 


100 blog post ideas

Use Pinterest

My favorite way to get inspired and think of new blog post ideas is by using Pinterest. A cool feature that Pinterest has is it suggests topic ideas for you based off of what you are sharing on Pinterest. It also lets you know which topics are trending! I love this feature! Chances are if I blog about a topic that is trending and then share my blog post on Pinterest, it has a chance to go viral! Whenever I feel stuck and don’t know what to blog about I will check out trending topics and ideas on Pinterest. 

To see this you have to click into the search bar and it will show your recent searches, suggested ideas, and trending ideas.

Go back and update old content

If you are feeling stuck and unmotivated when it comes to writing a new blog post, go back and update old content! I love doing this in general because it can help improve my SEO. Let’s be honest, most of the time our older blog posts aren’t always our best blog posts. When I update my old content I also get re-inspired to create new content!

You might be wondering what you should do to improve your old content, which is why I share strategies on what to do to update and improve your old content here.

Look at your analytics 

Another great way to get blog post ideas and feel motivated to write a new blog post is by analyzing your analytics. Figure out which blog posts are most popular and continue to put out content related to those popular blog posts.

You can also think about which content usually goes “viral” on Pinterest. For example, my 10 relationship reminders blog post always goes viral on Pinterest whenever I create a new pin. This makes me think that maybe I should write more blog posts related to relationships because they could also have the potential to go “viral” on Pinterest.

If you don’t have google analytics installed onto your website yet, it can be very helpful! It tells you which blog posts are popular! It also tells you what your audience’s interests are.

Have a brainstorming session 

I love brainstorming sessions when I am feeling a writer’s block. Try to set aside some time where you can sit with a notebook in a quiet space. Brainstorm blog post topics and title ideas. I usually will write down blog post topics from “beauty, motivation, lifestyle, business” and then write blog post titles that come to mind for each topic. This helps get my creative juices flowing and gives me tons of ideas!

You should also keep a list of blog post ideas nearby so you can jot down when a new one comes to mind! I like to use my notes on my phone to do this. I’ll admit it, I have hundreds of notes saved on my phone! OOPS. 

Find guest posters 

If you are really struggling and want to try and stick to a consistent blog post schedule, reach out to other bloggers in your niche and see if they’d be willing to guest post on your blog! This can help you when you aren’t able to get a new blog post up, feeling stuck, or even have a trip planned! Plus it’s great to collab with other bloggers! 

Come up with a series

Have you ever thought of coming up with a blog post series? This can help you come up with at lest 5-10 blog post ideas. For example, if you are a beauty blogger you can do a series like, “Friday Favorites” or a month of “Budget Beauty”. Maybe a series of “Organizing Your Home”, start with one room each blog post. It’s like a mini organization series. Hope this makes sense! 

Eliminating distractions 

I don’t know about you but I know that I get easily distracted! ESPECIALLY when I am writing a new blog post. It’s so easy to be in the middle of writing a blog post and next thing you know you are scrolling through social media for the next hour. I try to hide my phone and eliminate all distractions when I am ready to seriously sit down and write a new blog post. It helps a lot! 

Monthly blog vision

If you really want to take your blog seriously and get into a consistent posting schedule, then it’s time to create a monthly blog vision! This is when you map out your blog posts for the month in advance! Having content written in advance can make sticking to a consistent schedule a lot less stressful. I wrote about creating a monthly blog vision that you should definitely give a read if you are wanting to get more consistent with blogging! 

Ask your audience

When in doubt, it doesn’t hurt to ASK your audience what they want to read next! This is also a great way to connect with your audience to hear what they enjoy reading from you! I usually will create polls on twitter or Instagram. You can also send an e-mail to your subscribers and ask them what they enjoy reading too!

Change up your space

This is something I have been struggling with lately. Since I work from home it is so easy for me to feel uninspired when I am home all the time. Sometimes changing up where I work can help to re-inspire me. You can also switch up your office.

I used to move my room around all the time as a kid because I LOVED change. Maybe move your desk around, decorate your space, create a vision board, and surround your desk with your favorite scents. It’s the little things that can make a huge difference.
