I’m almost half-way through #NaBloPoMo and, admittedly, I’m struggling. Blog Her have provided some fantastic prompts, but I’m one of those awkward people who only likes to write about something when I’m in the mood to do so, so I haven’t been following them as diligently as others.
Once a blog has been established and a number of posts written, it’s inevitable that most bloggers will suffer from the dreaded ‘Bloggers Block’ at some point. Indeed, it has plagued me at various points in the year, and it’s incredibly frustrating, particularly when the urge to write is there.
However, I have learned to keep a list of ideas for such occasions, and I thought it might be useful to share it for others in a similar situation:
- Write an ‘Open Letter’ to someone.
- Host a poll and post the results – WordPress allows you to have a poll widget as part of your blog.
- Write a follow up to your most popular post.
- Share some of your favourite photographs.
- Review a product, album, film or book.
- Review an event you attended.
- Share your favourite recipe.
- Collate a Bucket List – things to see and do before you die.
- Collate an Anti-Bucket List – things you never wish to see and do before you die.
- The experience of hindsight … eg. ‘Eight Things I Learned From My Teenage Years.’
- Write about the worst present you’ve ever been given.
- Share some of life’s little pleasures.
- Share some of life’s little annoyances.
- Top Tens – create a list of top tens of anything and everything.
- Write a response to someone else’s blog post.
- Share what is your Facebook status likely to be in 2020 and explain why.
- Explain where and when you would travel to in a time machine.
- Describe how would you spend your last day on earth.
- Write about how you would spend a large lottery win.
- Describe the day you left home.
- Write about your first love.
- Create a post comprising of old tweets.
- Share your favourite YouTube videos.
- Share your opinions on fictional characters in TV programmes, books and/or films.
- Pick holes in various film plots.
- Write about ‘A Day in the Life.’
- Hold a contest.
- Host a Blog Party.
- Create a resource list – put together a list of useful websites, tools and networks that help you in your daily life.
- Write a ‘Recipe of You.’ What makes you, well, you?
- Discuss your favourite charitable cause.
- Write a ‘How To.’
- Compare and contrast different opinions on a subject.
- Inspire others by sharing a story that you find heart-warming.
- Research part of your family history.
- Create a set of predictions for the future.
- Write a hypothetical post.
- Create a list of four things that you like about lots of different topics.
- Write a post based on a comment that one of your followers may have left you.
- Share the most obscure search terms that have lead others to your blog.
- Share your favourite inspirational quote and explain how it motivates you.
- Create a ‘Blog of the Day,’ highlighting your favourite bloggers.
- Advise others on how to use social media tools like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
- Create a photo diary of your day.
Hope you find some of these useful!
