writer's block ideasSometimes the thought of sitting down to type out a post can be very daunting. Writer’s block is real, and it effects all kinds of writers – even bloggers. If you find yourself stuck in a rut, here are 36 ideas to try to get your brain going!

  1. Things you don’t know about me
  2. Most embarrassing moment
  3. Q&A: Ask your readers to send you questions on social media and cover them in a blog post
  4. Favorite TV shows & movies
  5. Your five favorite photos and the stories behind them
  6. Post your favorite recipe
  7. Favorite fonts
  8. Tune Tuesday: post your favorite songs, music you’ve been listening to lately, etc.
  9. A Day in My Life: document 24 hours in your life
  10. Write a Buzzfeed-style listicle
  11. Do a favorites post of things you’ve been loving lately (these are one of my favorite kinds of posts to write and read!)
  12. Feature your favorite bloggers
  13. Every day is a holiday – look up what today is and talk about your favorite way to eat that food
  14. What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
  15. If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? (I would buy Kraft Dinners, a la Barenaked Ladies :))
  16. Take part in a linkup: Wordless Wednesday, Fan Friday… there are tons of linkups with different topics. Pick one and join in!
  17. Write a primer to your favorite band
  18. Two truths and a lie: tell three stories (and include photo proof if you want!) but one of the stories is a lie. Get your readers to guess which one it is!
  19. Be a fashion blogger for a day – grab a friend or a tripod and style up your favorite look
  20. Post a haul video or blog
  21. Gather your popular posts and cull them together for new readers
  22. Publish your bucket list
  23. Talk about your favorite books
  24. What’s your morning routine? Are you a shower-and-go girl, or do you meticulously apply makeup and style your hair every day? (I alternate between both of these without shame.)
  25. What’s the last vacation you went on?
  26. Talk about your hometown – best places to eat, fun activities, etc. for anyone who might be looking for a weekend getaway
  27. Describe your perfect day
  28. If your life was a TV show, what would it be?
  29. What’s your favorite sports team?
  30. Try doing a vlog!
  31. How did you spend your last birthday?
  32. Write about your college experience. If you’re still in or haven’t gone to college yet, talk about what you hope you’ll remember ten years after graduation.
  33. Create a challenge for yourself – maybe you want to drink more water or use more coupons. Blogging about it creates accountability!
  34. Talk about why you started blogging in the first place. Why do you continue writing?
  35. What’s the best thing that happened to you this week?
  36. How do you pack your lunch? What kind of snacks do you bring for the workday?

So with those 36 ideas to get you started, maybe it will help you break through the block! (And selfishly, these are all the kinds of posts I like reading. More workday snack posts, I say!)
