25 Ideas for Blog Posts


While reading Paige's post on Monday, I found myself nodding along when she mentioned that lately she has been struggling with writing weekend recaps.  They've been focusing on living a simpler life and therefore haven't been doing as much as normal.  I feel the exact same way but for me, it's not just with weekend recaps - although I'm sure you guys have heard of enough of our out to dinner, work on the house, binge watch TV, repeat weekend routine - it's with every post.  

It's easy to come up with ideas in the summer when we're going nonstop and I'm recapping our adventures or over the holidays when we're all sharing our wish lists and favorite traditions.  But January through March are pretty quiet around here and I don't know about you, but I have to dig deep to come up with blog posts.  So today I thought I'd put together a list of 25 of my very best ideas in case any of you are in the same boat.  Without further ado...

1. What's your favorite outfit in your closet?
2. Share your favorite recipe
3. Put together a wish list - with an unlimited budget
4. Write a thank you note to someone who did something nice for you recently
5. Share embarrassing pictures from your childhood
6. Tell us what you keep on your nightstand
7. Make a vlog
8. What are you reading/on your 'to read' list?
9. Share your all time favorite movie
10. Tell us when and why you started blogging
11. Share your favorite Pandora/Spotify stations
12. Trade blogs with a friend for a day - you post on theirs, they post on yours
13. The Positivity Project (see here for mine!)
14. Favorite people to follow on Instagram, Pinterest or your favorite blogs to read
15. Who is the most inspirational person from your youth and why?
16. If you're in a relationship, tell us how you met and/or your engagement story
17. Share a secret about yourself
18. A 'currently' post - what you're eating, watching, shopping for, looking forward to...
19. Write a letter to your 16 year old self
20. Share a 'day in the life' post
21. Your travel bucket list
22. Your favorite phone apps
23. An interview with your husband (these are hilarious)
24. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
25. Share your blogs mission statement/where you would like to see it go

Hope these help if you've got the winter writing blahs.  Don't forget to share a few of your own ideas below in the comments!

  7. Great post, lady! I have to be honest though, I kind of love the weekend recaps. But, that's because I'm nosy, heehee!

  8. Love these ideas! Definitely going to take some inspiration from this list. I would love to start incorporating vlogs, but I have no idea where to start with that. I think it would probably take me a full week to come up with a video that I was happy with. I'm definitely not used to seeing myself on camera!

  10. This is SO helpful! You have no idea, lol. I think all of us have been in a bit of a winter slump lately, so any sort of inspiration or post suggestions are so greatly appreciated. I'm sure you'll see a few of these topics in the coming weeks on my blog! :)

  13. These are all great ideas! I have been feeling the same way lately - there's not been too much going on since Michael is working and I'm just getting things ready for baby. I never feel like I have much to say about my weekends! Hopefully spring is coming soon. :)

  27. I just read your interview with your husband - that is hilarious! I actually asked my husband if we could record a video together where we do a Q&A but just asking him questions about my blog and what I normally do would be so much fun too!! Great list Katie!
