If you’re a blogger and are feeling uninspired, this post is for you. Maybe you have a full-time job or the kids don’t give you much time to brainstorm. Whatever the reason, I’m sure you know how hard it is to come up with blog post ideas.
Sometimes, it can get really stressful forcing your creative juices to flow. The more you overthink it, the more you get frustrated…and overwhelmed.
I am a big fan of creating blog posts that are evergreen and timeless. This means that you can share the post over and over at any time of the year. What good is creating something that you can never share again? If your blog has a section for holiday-specific recipes, DIYs then awesome. You absolutely can write about your favorite Halloween costume.
However, if you truly want to have a successful blog, you can’t just have one-time posts. You need to have a library of content that you can always share. If not, you are just making more work for yourself.
Varying your types of content is important too. Maybe your post is normal text but you should also add in videos, live video, or audio (Podcast).
You should know what your niche is and what your readers want to read and learn from you. This is what you really want to write about. You want to research what blog post ideas would be successful to bring in high traffic. Share your thoughts with the world!
Consider setting up regular features to keep your content calendar full. On Punky Moms, we publish a new Spotify mixtape every 2 weeks as well as feature a new small business every month.
Just remember: You don’t need a million readers to accomplish your goal. Most bloggers just need to aim for a few hundred (or perhaps a few thousand) loyal readers in order to get there.
If you don’t know what your goals are, I highly suggest taking some time to figure that shit out. Just shouting into the abyss with no goal in mind (building community, selling products/services) will again, just be giving you more work.
