Hello my KMD lovelies!
A couple of weeks ago, on Instagram, I did a poll asking you all what type of blogging tips you would like to see coming up. One of the ideas suggested to me was regarding how to come up with unique blog post ideas (suggested by Stephanie of HippieChicksAndPixieSticks on Instagram). Since I also struggle with this, I thought I could create a post to show what helps me come up with fun blog post ideas. So sit back, relax and enjoy the tips!
Combine Two Ideas as One
This may sound silly but trust me, it makes a lot more sense once it’s executed. Last year, I wanted to do a blog post on some Disney costumes, but I always wanted to do a Halloween costume collaboration with some fellow bloggers. So, I decided to combine both of those ideas and do a Disney costume themed collaboration instead. Those posts were super popular!
People love to read about your life since they want to feel like they are reading content from a friend. The best way to get to “know a person” (in this case a blogger) is to talk about your day-to-day life which also includes your job. If blogging is your full-time job then you can do a “day in the life of a blogger” type of post. If blogging isn’t your full-time job, then you can mention your current day job to your readers.
List your top 5 favorite “______”
Similar to the post above, readers love to learn more about their favorite bloggers. Writing blog post about your top 5 favorite beauty products, top 5 favorite beach locations, 5 last minute halloween costume ideas, etc, is a fun and easy way to keep your readers engaged.
Ask your readers
This may be a silly tip but asking your readers what they want is the best way to come up with content! In fact, that is how this blog come came about, as mentioned in my into paragraph. I love asking my readers what they would like to see from me. It’s a great way to keep the current readers on your blog to still be engaged and continue to come back for more content.
Go through your popular posts
If you’re having a true writer’s block on what to write about next, then just go through your most popular blog posts! Chances are, inspiration will strike as soon as you check out those posts.
