Where to get blog post ideas

Many people wonder how I get to write blog posts almost everyday. Apart from the fact that I love writing and it comes naturally to me. I have created a lifestyle spot here on Fashion and Style Police that allows me pretty write about anything I want. From fashion and beauty, to travel and parenting. Having a lifestyle blog gives me that creative freedom to write whatever I want t write about, and that means I have more content on the blog to publish.

Inspiration is everywhere when it comes to looking for blog post ideas. I never have to look for ideas for my blog to be honest. Ideas are everywhere. From what I observe when out and about, to the shows I watch on TV or books I get to read on my Amazon Kindle. I am never out to ideas. The way I see it is different. If you spend time living, you will never run out of ideas, but if your focus is blog post content, then you may struggle.

Here are some ways you could get blog post ideas depending on your niche –

 

Review Posts

Reviewing products or services you have experienced is also a great idea. I love reading and writing product reviews. I never buy a new product or go somewhere new without first googling about reviews about the product or place. Review posts are very helpful and Google loves them. I try to publish at least 1 review post a week and I am never in search of what to review because they are right in front of me.

 

Outfit Posts

If you are into fashion and style, publishing outfit posts is a great idea. I have not published a new outfit post for ages now for many reasons. But I will be back and better in a bit so look out for some interesting content.

 

Makeup tutorial

Makeup tutorials are popular on YouTube but you can also blog about them with steps and great photography. If you are into makeup, this will be a great creative outlet for you.

Parenting tips

Every parent has a story and a unique journey that many will find useful, so if you love writing and you are a parent, sharing your unique story will help many. That is the whole idea behind parent blogs and networks, but that doesn’t mean your blog has to be a parent blog for you to write about parenting. You can incorporate parenting blog posts alongside other niches like travel, health, and even fashion.

This is one area I plan to write more about in the Kids Section Category on the blog. I feel like I have so much to share and it has been a neglected category for some months now, but it will be revived soon with useful; hacks and tips.

 

General

Like I sad, you can write about pretty much what you want as along as it ties in with your message/brand. I love reading lifestyle blogs as the varied content keeps me engrossed. I get bored really quickly so a tight niche blog is my cup of tea.

How to become a better blogger

There are blogs all over the web so many bloggers may worry about standing out from the huge pack. Competition is one thing I don’t worry about. Variety is the spice of life and I love that there are so many blogs in different niches to read. I read blog posts written by various bloggers everyday and I love how they each bring something to the table. If you are thinking of how to stand out and become a better blogger, here are some useful tips you may find handy –

 

Bring something to the table

There is no need for a new blog if you have nothing to say. Copying blog posts all over the web and pasting them on your blog won’t get you far. Stealing ideas off other blogs won’t do you any good long term. You need to bring in your own ideas to become a better blogger. Your blog posts have to entertain. inform or educate your readers, or there’s no point in publishing it. Becoming a better blogger means you bring your authenticity to your blog and write in the tone and style that is unique to you. That is one way to stand out from the saturated world of blogging.

Make attention to your headlines

This is one area I have struggled on and off in but I a lot better now with my headlines. Catchy headlines get you more clicks, so it is worth paying attention to them a bit more. It is best to keep the headlines below 7 words to get as many clicks as possible (SEO seems to like those best). Also, you should ensure the headline is related to the blog post and not a clickbait like many blogs do. That is just not right in my eyes.

 

Focus on niches you are interested in

When you write about topics you have interest in, your passion shows and that entices your readers even more. It also means you never run out of ideas. There is no point setting up a pet or beauty blog if you run out of ideas after a month of setting it up. Focus on niches you are interested in to become a better blogger.

 

Add Bullet Points

I always use bullet points in my blog posts. They make it easy for me to write and easier for my readers to scan through my posts. If there’s one tip you implement today, it should be this one. Adding bullet points make your posts a lot easier to read.

Share your posts on social media

Sharing your blog posts on social media can bring you lots of practice. My favourite social media platform for traffic referral is Pinterest. I have been getting loads of referrals from there and I am loving it so much. It is also a lot easier to stay active on compared to other social media platforms. I plan to spend more time generating traffic from Pinterest as that is clearly working great.

 

Post regularly

I post regularly on here and I have done so since day 1. Writing gives me pleasure and the fact that it is now a job makes it even more pleasurable.  I am grateful to be able to earn an income while working from home and it is not something I take for granted at all. Maybe that is why I work my behind off on here.

 

Do you blog? How do you plan on becoming a better blogger? And if you don’t blog, what sort of blogs do you enjoy reading and why?

My Blog Coaching Service

If you have been reading my blog for sometime now, you would know I now offer a blog coaching service. This service is great for new bloggers looking to grow their blog quickly and start to earn an income from it. My blog coaching service will teach you how to go about getting your blog to the right standards, so you can start reaping the benefits. There is a small fee for this service to cover my time but it is quite affordable because I want to help as many bloggers as I can.

I think there is more than enough room for every blog on the big wide web, and I know every blog has the potential to be a lot more. Which is why I decided to start this service rather than spending hours I don’t have replying all the emails about growing blogs. This way I get to help bloggers and myself at the same time.
