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 lose weight fast with lifestyle changes

There are many ways to lose weight fast. A quick google search will bring multiple ways on how to lose weight fast with lifestyle changes.

If you are struggling to shed off some weight, it is wise to play around with various lifestyle changes until you find what works for you and your body best.

Here are some ways you may lose weight fast with lifestyle changes –

 

Work on your diet

The first step when it comes to losing weight is to work on your diet. Watching what you eat and eating a balanced healthy diet is the fastest way to lose weight fast. Cutting back on sugars and starchy foods (carbohydrates) will help you massively. Reducing the sugary and starchy foods you eat will reduce your hunger levels which will in turn reduce your weight eventually. Also instead of burning carbohydrates for energy, your body starts to feed off stored fat.

Make sure your diet includes more protein and vegetables. Some great examples are –

Tomatoes

Cucumber

Fish

Meat

Seafood

Spinach

Broccoli

 

Working on your diet is one very important lifestyle change you should make if you want to lose weight.

 

Stay active

You need to stay active so you lose weight and to keep it off. You don’t have to go to a gym to stay active. Going for walks help. Jogging/running is a great way to spend tome outdoors and exercise at the same time. You could also join a dance club to get moving or have your own dance session at home if you prefer that. There are lots of YouTube videos available to help you on that.

Staying active is so very important. Getting out and about everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes helps your mental and physical health.

Eat your food slowly

Believe it or not, eating your food slowly helps you lose weight. This is one tip I was pleased to discover because I eat slowly naturally. That could be one reason why I manage to keep the weight off. Eating your food slowly helps you feel full quicker which will discourage overeating.

 

Drink more water

Research has shown that drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before having a meal will increase weight loss in about 3 months. So if you are struggling with excess weight and have tried every trick in the book, you should try this one.

 

Get a good night’s sleep

Research has proved that sleeping well can help you lose weight. Poor sleep is now strongly linked to obesity so ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep. This is yet another reason to make sure you are sleeping enough. Most adults need around 7/8 hours of good sleep. Poor sleep can lead to many other health problems so getting a good night’s sleep is very important.

Why you should treat yourself regularly

*Collaborative post.

It is very important to treat yourself every now and again. We spend so much time working and taking care of others that we sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves. I know we mums are so guilty of this. We spend hours taking care of the children and running the home, neglecting ourselves in the process.  I am guilty of putting myself last almost every time. Life gets so busy with stuff that needs doing and it is super easy to care for yourself. We forget that for us to be our best, we have to feel good and treat ourselves regularly.

This post is a reminder for you to take care of yourself and treat yourself to some luxuries from time to time. If you wondering how you should treat yourself regularly, here are some ideas you may like.

 

Buy yourself that jewellery

Diamonds are a woman’s best friend, and it is a lovely way of treating yourself. I recently came across Chapelle Jewellers and I fell in love with their amazing selection of jewellery and watches. I would love to spoil myself with some diamond earrings in future. Earrings are my favourite kind of jewellery. They are so precious and I like investing in them because I wear them pretty much everyday.

Buying yourself jewellery is a great way to treat yourself if you are into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings and the rest.

 

Book yourself in for a massage

I love having a massage. It leaves me relaxed and ready to get on with what needs doing. Having regular massages is a way to treat yourself. It may be pricey to get an hour’s massage (anything else is too short) but it does a lot of good for your physical and mental health.

I am badly in need of a full body massage. I have not had one in awhile thanks to the busy summer holidays. So I will be booking a session in the next few days when we go on holiday.

Go on holiday

Holidays are expensive which is why so many people hardly go anywhere these days, but they don’t necessarily have to be. Holidays are a nice way to treat yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything luxurious or even outside the country. There are lots of cheap staycations available that would do wonders for your state of mind.

It is always a good idea to get out of the house for a bit and go somewhere different. Just being out of your home and away from your regular routine is a way to treat yourself. We have a couple of staycations planned this year and I am so looking forward to them. Holidays are a necessity and not a luxury.

 

Alone time

Being by yourself is a great way to unwind. I love my alone time a lot. Trips to the cinema by myself are amazing. I also love going for walks and shopping alone. The time alone gives me time to relax and think clearly. This is easily done when the kiddies are in school, so I make the most of it then.
