Blogging Tips Growth & Inspiration

150 Blog Post Ideas for Every Blogger

Is the only thing stopping you from blogging your writer’s block? If you’re fresh out of ideas or in a creative rut, it can make blogging feel like a near-impossible task. As someone who knows the struggle, I took the time to brainstorm 150 blog post ideas for the new year. Whether you’re a veteran blogger looking for different angles or new blogger in search of ideas and tactics, I hope this list sparks inspiration for a year’s worth of quality content.

What Makes a Good Blog Post?

When brainstorming blog post ideas and creative content, I have a few criteria I use as a rule of thumb:

  • What’s a question my readers are asking and how can I answer it?
  • How does this blog post help the reader? What will they gain from this post?
  • How do I personally connect to this topic?
  • What makes my blog post unique?

I value relateability, honesty, and resourcefulness when creating a blog post. Don’t put words you don’t believe in or messages that mean nothing out there. Clickbait is not cute, friends.

Where to Find Blog Post Ideas and Inspiration?

Outside of asking and actively answering questions in your category of interest for your lifestyle blog, research is a necessity. Sites like Answer The Public can help you find subjects people are searching for online. Google Keyword Planner is another valuable tool for boosting SEO and brainstorming.

Similar in ways to Google, Pinterest works like a search engine. When you use the search bar, you’ll notice a dropdown list that includes “Trending Searches.” The trending searches section is filled with the content people are in need of, making for excellent blog post ideas and fodder.
