When the Block Hits: Blog Post Ideas for Lifestyle Bloggers

Writer’s block doesn’t discriminate between writing genres, or blogging niches. Every writer will likely come face-to-face with the blockade at some point, (unless you have some kind of writing super power and if so, good for you). Either way, writers and bloggers alike have to turn to help when the wall rises in our minds. Prompts are probably the best weapon in your arsenal for a writing roadblock and so are post ideas that you can make you own. I’ve been there a lot. You think you’re full of ideas, then that asshole of a block holds back the words.

If you’re a lifestyle blogger, here are some ideas for blog posts when you get the monstrous writer’s block:

  1. A Round-up post of your favorite TV series. (You could rank them and describe what makes each one great, to you).
  2. Do a “Biggest Fear” post and detail why that fear is so terrifying to you.
  3. Review the last movie you watched.
  4. Do a breakdown of your favorite beauty products and what makes them so great.
  5. Do a “The Soundtrack of” Post (example: “The Soundtrack of Summer 2015)
  6. Write an open letter to someone important in your life (parents, aunts, friends – anyone who has had a significant impact on your life).
  7. Do a post about Apps you can’t live without.
  8. Share a personal story that taught you something.
  9. Do a tribute post to something/someone that inspires you and why.
  10. Give your best tips for dealing with a bad day.
  11. Write about a bad piece of advice you’ve received.
  12. What are your current hobbies, and your past hobbies? Write about how you got started and share tips.
  13. Make a “To Be Read” list and share it on your blog.
  14. Share one (or more) of your favorite recipes.
  15. Share your Bucket List.
  16. Discuss items in your life that make life easier.
  17. Share 10-15 things that your readers probably don’t know about you.
  18. Share some fun things to do in your city.
  19. Talk about your favorite vacation.
  20. Share your best tips for beating procrastination.

You have thousands, probably even millions of ideas in you. It’s all about pulling them to the surface.

All of us have stories on stories on stories in us. It can be hard to pull them out at will and frankly, a lot of struggle with focusing on one idea at a time. I hope this post helps you if you’ve hit writer’s block on your next blog post 🙂
