Even if you're a blogger who most likely enjoys writing, you probably have those moments when you just can't think of anything to write. Maybe your brain has ran its course for the day or you've used all of your favorite ideas up in recent blog posts. If that's the case, you're in luck! I've created a list of 45 creative and unique blog post ideas. I wasn't sure if I should share these ideas of mine because a lot of them are ones I'd like to use on my own blog, but I absolutely love how the blogging community is so willing to help each other and I'd like to contribute! 

First, I'd like to give a little input on what makes me keep going back to blogs time and time again. 

The blogs I'm obsessed with have these qualities:

  • honest posts (no scammy or spammy posts like, "How I made $250,000 my first year of blogging)
  • genuine posts (posts that I can tell were written because the blogger actually loves writing and loves what they're doing- not just because they want to make money off of every little thing they can) (I also appreciate genuine posts that are written for the pure intent to help or inform people about their favorite resources, etc- not just to get new followers or traffic)
  • interesting blog posts (have different perspectives, new ideas, different blog post topics than everyone else- not just the "same old, same old") 
  • have a variety of valuable information that I can trust
  • the writer is personable and relatable but confident about the information they are sharing
