10 Blog Post Topic Ideas

Coming up with new ideas or topics to write about on your blog (or journal for that matter) can be challenging. Which is why a while back I wrote a post about overcoming writer’s block.  In that post, I gave one tip that encouraged you to get ideas from other blogger’s posts.  Don’t plagiarize–simply be inspired by their topics (and give credit to your inspiration in your post).  For example, if a blogger you like has written about their most embarrassing moment, this may inspire you to write a post on the same topic telling YOUR story.

(via)

I thought I would take this “tip” one step further, and provide y’all with a list of 10 of my posts that I think you could easily adapt for your own blog.

Letter to Younger (or Older) Me: This was one of my favorite writing exercises ever.  I learned a lot about myself in the process.  I wrote a letter to 16 year old me, from 27 year old me.  You can do the same thing, looking back on any age that may have been pivotal in your life.

Our Love Story: I have done this as a series (and I still haven’t completed it).  In a somewhat similar fashion to the Pioneer Woman, I have started to write my love story in chapter format–each as it’s own post.  Try this with your own love story.

My Life List: Another favorite writing exercise, inspired by Petit Elefant.  This post is a bucket list of sorts–a list of 100 things I want to learn, see and accomplish in my lifetime.  You will have a blast putting this list together, and I encourage this exercise whether you have a blog or not–it’s not as easy as it sounds!

Things You Should Know About Me if We’re Gonna be BFF:  This was a fun, goofy post I came up with a long time ago.  It is basically a list of the most random intimate details of my strange personality.  Here is a link to a similar styled follow post I wrote more recently. You will be surprised about how many readers share the qualities that make you weird.

I’m Blank Because:  A fill in the blanks post.  You kind of need to read this post to see what it’s all about–but it’s perfect to adapt to your own emotions or experiences on your blog.

The College Years: Look back onto key time periods of your life, and reflect on what they meant to you.  For example, in this post I revisited my college years–and came clean about what college really meant to me.  You could do this about high school, about childhood, about your parenting years, about your career years–whatever fits your story.

Hello Monday: These posts are fun and simple and they revolve around photographs. They are also inspired by the lovely and talented Lisa Leonard who starts off every week with a Hello Monday link party–its a great way to start the week.

Books Matter: In this post I revisited all the books that impacted my life through childhood. So so so fun remembering these stories and sharing them with all my bloggy BFF’s.  What books touched your life?

Awkward and Awesome: Inspired by the Daybook, these posts are both quirky and intimate, as you write out the awkward and awesome of your week.  Often times the Daybook will ask you to link your post in her comments section so it can be shared with her other readers.

I Have a Secret: And if you’re feeling really brave, you can try writing out your secret.  You know what…you should try this even if you never share it with another living soul. I can testify to you that there is something truly relieving and uplifting about putting the words down on paper. And if you do decide to share it over the Internet, you may be surprised at how many lives you are able to touch.

(via)

So give it a whirl. If you end up writing on any of these topics I would love for you to leave a link in the comments so that myself and others can be inspired by your stories. Or if you have any writing topic ideas that you think will be helpful to others, please share those as well.

    What’s great is that you shared your secret, that may have changed some lives. But you probably didn’t know that you would inspire a ton of others to share theirs, touching more from each of those! I shared my secret one week ago. Totally relieved, do I fret about it still,yes, but at least I feel free. http://www.larnmichelle.blogspot.com/2012/05/real-secret.html Thanks for the other tips as well! Glad you are back to writing again

    Love all these ideas. I like to do Hello Monday and On my heart – on my heart is nice because it could be personal and deep allowing readers to get to know you better. I think it’s also fun to blog about things that aren’t so deep or personal like some ideas found on pinterest or polyvore. I really believe that being real is key or else you can’t connect with your readers.
    Some other ideas I have are…..
    A post on your dreams….(future dreams/goals)
    Documenting your child’s milestones (like 6 years old today etc)
    Writing a post like a kids story about your child’s day “Hi I’m Olivia, When I wake up and give my mom a BIG kiss and say I want MILK PLEEEESE” I think it’s a fun keepsake for them when they are older.
    I did a post called “Before I was a mom” http://cantelmofamily.com/before-i-was-mom/
    Ten years ago http://cantelmofamily.com/ten-years-ago/
    I also love doing posts that encourage my husband – almost like a love letter to him. I wrote a post called “Say I do” saying I do through the ups and downs….it’s a good reminder for me!
    Have you done 5 minute friday at the Gypsy mama? http://thegypsymama.com/ You have 5 minutes to write on a word she puts out. It’s challenging and fun!!

    You can check out some of the things I’ve done over at my blog http://cantelmofamily.com

    As I was looking through some of my old posts – I noticed that they didn’t transfer the pictures when I moved from blogger to wordpress? Anyone have any ideas???

I am really inspired to document my love story. It is something that we would love to read over and over again. I love your story by the way. So real and full of love. Thank you for the inspiration and it will really make my week if you go and check my first post. It will mean sooo much to me. Thank you lady and keep inspiring people. God bless you!

    I was recently reading a book about how to cope with overwhelming emotions and it read, “If you’re in a painful situation and your emotions are going to overwhelm you and possibly make things worse, then often it’s best just to leave.” This reminded me of the many times I’ve left a party, a camping trip, a get together with family, or a friends house because I suddenly became profoundly depressed, with a sickening ache deep in my stomach. I would feel an almost uncontrollable urge to cry, but if I was unable to get away I would just shut myself out from everyone else and be silent, saying I was tired if someone asked if I was okay. Many times I have said goodnight to retreat to my room and cry. It is this side of me that I am ashamed of and have always tried to hide. To this day I hide my depression from my friends and sometimes family, so that I can have normal relationships with people and not be given special treatment. I feel shy and embarrassed in public, it is hard for me to look people in the eyes. When someone who cares asks me whats wrong I can’t be real because I would be too emotional. I want so much to be close but I’m afraid and ashamed of who I am. I feel inadequate and unwanted. I feel like no one would want to be with someone insecure, hurt, and depressed. I keep finding out how much depression has been affecting every aspect of my life and been the driving force behind my biggest problems. It makes me want to feel like I’m a victim and its not my fault, and to forgive myself. For some reason I continue to feel like I am fundamentally flawed and should be rejected. I crave having a girlfriend to hold me and to be close to, and I feel ashamed of this desire, like it is childish or taboo. I do not feel like I am Okay the way I am, and even though I am aware of all the ways my thinking is flawed I haven’t been able to feel differently. I can’t lead a normal life when I feel like crying every day.

    Thanks – Gareth Ackanowledge

    It is important to know how to manage and accumulate debt responsibly.
    The first problem was that the debt card companies promised to get rid
    of your debts by the time we realize it, we should not panic during financial crises as nothing is impossible.
    No point in waiting, just charge it and pay for it. In that case,
    you can focus on the fact that it is not applicable.

    But under the Mortgage Forgiveness debt management program Act
    dictates that acquisition debt may be going to a financial planner or accountant for further
    advice before signing anything. Tax lawyers are more familiar with this

    Моя приказ настройка vps сервера чтобы начинающих подойдёт даже тем который никогда заранее ни разу не имел предприятие с vps/vds сервером вместе, а пользовался в основном хостингом, его ещё можно назвать shared хостингом. В статье будет рассмотрена установка LAMP пакета c apache для начинающих. С помощью данного руководства и серии следующих статей вы полностью установите и настроите сервер+свой сайт, начинать тож перенесете его для vps. По такому же принципу так же осуществляется настройка выделенного сервера (dedicated) .
    перва про установку версии операционки ради сервера. В панели управлением сервером ( для сайте вашего провайдера) http://gooline.spplat.ru вы можете установить любой из ОС. Для этого нуждаться просто выбрать нужную отметить галочкой и нажать кнопку ОК. Затем чего она будет установлена. Если у вас грызть какие – то предложения установить соборно с ней какой-то софт либо что-то lamp, lemp разве сколько другое – не советую, лучше этого не делать. Простой установите чистую ос. В данной статье довольно руководство для примере ubuntu 14.04. Следовательно советую установить её либо любую другую ubuntu 14.04/debian. Потом этого обычно вас просят подождать от 5 накануне 10 минут, пока она установится. Чтобы нам начать с ним что-то изготовлять конечно нужно к нему подключиться, действительно беспричинно же как вы подключались к FTP на своём хостинге. Единственно тогда это делается мало иначе. Сперва расскажу о часть который это следовать образец подключения и о программах которые чтобы него предусмотрены. И уже после этого начнём.
    Чтобы подключение используется протокол SSH. Программ которые с ним работают немало, самая популярная это PuTTY, только не спешите её скачивать. Это не всё, беспричинно же столоваться большое состав плагинов для браузеров (беспричинно называемых ssh-клиентов) НО! Всегда которые я пробовал были какими-то сырыми сиречь глюканутыми, либо не позволяли никак вмешивать текст туда (а всего писать в ручную) следовательно их я не советую. Ну а чем же пользуюсь я, я перепробовал их кипа и уже давно остановился для Bitvise SSH Client Вы можете поискать в нете, скачать оттуда сиречь скачать версию которая стоит у меня.
