10 random places to grab post ideas for your blog

I'm not the only person who finds amusement out of embarrassing things like mistakenly hitting yourself in the face while trying to snuggle in bed as a post to share with the world - right? I'm not. I find myself with a ton of ideas everyday from the most random things but I will accept this gift. I'm sharing a few places you can grab random inspiration to keep your blog fresh and alive!


1. Step Into Your Closet
This is a great place to start, especially if you have a lifestyle or fashion blog. I recently got inspired by my own closet which is how my post on the winter boots I failed to wear came about. 

2. The Foods You Eat
It's no secret that I am a true fatty when it comes to food. I love to eat. I also think that some meals are worthy of a blog post - like these quick meals for lazy foodies like me. Gon' girl and blog about those that meal you and your boo enjoyed. 

3. Your Product Stash
In other words, your collection of makeup, beauty, and hair care. This may not be too uncommon of a choice but I often find myself blogging about a random product I just have laying around that I can talk about if I like it or not. 

4. Look In Your Bag
Whether it be from your recent trip to Target or your small cross-body, I'm sure you can grab an idea from something in there. I did when I shared a few essentials to keep in a small purse.

5. Jewelry Is Always Nice
I haven't personally blogged about my fave accessories to wear YET but its a good idea. I did get inspired by one of my favorite necklaces when I wrote about my fave Brown Girl Bloggers - the photo I took for that post was good enough lol.

6. Got A Kid?
Yep, I'm a mommy so for my parents or god parents - guardians however, out there I find inspiration all the time. I recently shared a few weird things new moms do which I figured most could relate to. Your kids are great sources to blog about.

7. That "Might Be Boring" Thing
Sometimes people actually enjoy reading my random musings on things I thought wouldn't be of great interest but blogged on it anyway. Crazy right? Last year I shared how to discreetly store your Ms. Flo items - got more views than comments so point taken.

8. Your Crappy Feelings
Depending on what you define as crappy though. I just got over my Spring cold so sharing how to kick sick ass naturally seemed to be a great idea at the time. If you're feeling hurt, sick, or even betrayed - that's great fuel for a highly relatable post.

9.  A DIY 
I'm not talking about your Pinterest- famous posts on making your own hanging flower pots but something more subtle like how to use cutting shears. I grabbed that idea from my experience as a cosmetology student who still has her supplies hanging around. You can even share how to tie your shoes while your nail polish dries - ha!

10. Thin Air, Of Course
Whatever you find shareable at the time. I enjoyed writing about my obsession with my LG G3 so our personal indulgences are the real MVPs. From your fave phone apps to help you sleep to your failed yoga pose attempts. The best ideas come from authentic joys in our own lives.



WHERE DO YOU FIND YOURSELF GRABBING YOUR MOST RANDOM BLOG INSPIRATION?

  1. Like you, I get blog post ideas from any and everywhere including, but not limited to magazines, blogs I read, questions from family members and friends, Twitter, etc. Sometimes I like to go through my blog's archives and figure out ways to revamp older posts or add to them. #7 ("That might be boring" thing) is a good one! A few of my posts about things that I thought would be too boring or too simple turned out to be well-received and widely shared, which is always shocking to me.

    1. I totally agree! Especially with the revamping or extensions of posts. I feel the same way about my random posts. There will forever be that "why even bother" voice in my head but I pay it no mind lol.
