Do you suffer regularly from writer’s block? Have you ever felt panic when you have nothing to write about and can’t think of anything worth writing about? Sometimes circumstances beyond our control get in the way and we hardly have any time left to work on our blog, but most times we could struggle with new ideas especially when life gets in the way.
I have put together 30 blog post ideas to help give you a head start whenever you are lost for ideas. I hope you find them handy.
- Favourite blog posts of the week
As much as you would love more people read your blog posts, it’s also good to share blog posts written by other bloggers. This is not a way of driving readers from your blog. It’s more about sharing specific blog posts that you feel your readers will appreciate and learn from.
You can start by putting together a list of 5-10 of your favourite blog posts with a short piece on why you found it useful.
- Goals for the month
Sharing your monthly goals is a great way to keep you accountable as well as inspire your readers to set goals themselves. You can do a follow-up each week on how the monthly goals are looking.
- Quote of the day/week/month
A quote is only a couple of sentences long but they are loaded with inspiration. Pick a quote you love and write what it means to you. You can also write a list of quotes you love. They are always a great source of inspiration to your readers.

I do this a lot on Fashion and Style Police. Sharing your outfits and why you like them makes awesome blog posts. My OOTD posts are usually very popular.
- Your childhood memories (Blast from the past)
This may sound a little strange but let’s face it, you must have learned a lot about life when you were younger. Use these memories as a source of inspiration or a means to teach an important lesson that you think your audience will find useful in their lives. To make it really fun, you can add a picture of you as a child.

This sort of blog post is actually quite popular. It’s a way to reminisce about your life and share with your readers the mistakes you have made and what you would have done differently if you were given the chance.
