50 Ideas for Blog Posts
There are some days when I just do not know what I'm going to write about. It's kind of a weird thought that blogging only accounts for about 5% of what I do on a daily basis. More often than not, I come up with a blog post idea and think, "That's it, Carly.... the well's dried up. Nothing left. This is the end!!!" And then something else comes to me the next day. I've always kept a running list of blog ideas. In college, it was in a notebook by my bed and now it's just on my iPhone.
I thought it would be fun to put together a list of fifty ideas... to inspire myself and to inspire you, too. Writer's block can certainly be a pain! Here's my fifty:
1. Somewhere you've always wanted to travel to 2. Your favorite book/show/movie growing up 3. The best piece of advice you've been given 4. A hard choice you had to make 5. What's your favorite trick/hack that your mom taught you 6. If you had to choose one outfit to wear for the rest of your life what would it be 7. Share your bucket list 8. Post five pictures from childhood and tell the stories behind them 9. Write a letter to your future self 10. Give yourself a challenge and document the process 11. List 10 weird facts about yourself and ask your readers to do the same thing 12. A day in the life 13. Share an article or book that really made you think or changed your mind about something. 14.
