101 Blog Post Ideas

101 Blog Post Ideas from www.babiafi.co.uk


#1. Then and Now. Post a past and present comparison of whatever takes your fancy.

#2. Put together a gift guide and be as general (Baby's First Christmas) or as specific (Rainbow obsessed one-year-olds named Marianna) as you want.

#3. Connect with people - post an overview of your social media presence.

#4. Who would you invite to your dream dinner party, and why? What would be on the menu, and what would the entertainment look like? You might even be able to turn it into a series of posts.

#5. Give advice. Here's me telling you how to complain and get results for inspiration:


#6. If you know a lot about something, make a guide to it. I regularly post guides to doll diversity and the weird and wonderful things you can find in miniature.

#7. Humans are nosy creatures, give us a tour of your house. (Room / work space / single tidy looking shelf...)

#8. Who inspires you, and why?

#9. Complete the 30 Days of Film Challenge.

#10. Make a list of your top ten whatever - I've done Paintings, Comedy Songs, and Video Games.

#11. Review something. If you've tried a product and liked it, let the world know. Or let them know that it sucked, it's your decision! You can check out my reviews HERE.

#12. If reviewing isn't good enough, how about a comparison post? I've got one on trade-in websites.

#13. Take part in a community blogging challenge. The Fandom Snowflake Challenge, for instance.

#14. Post about all the bands you've been to see.

#15. Ghostly Going-Ons, Post about the things which go bump in the night: local legends, family ghost stories, or even just the scariest thing which has ever happened to you.


#16. Find an old picture of yourself. Write about what you thought your life would be like now, back when that photo was taken.

#17. Be negative - tell the world about your least favourite things, and the worst films / books / dinosaur / whatever you can think of.

#18. Or, be positive. Blog about all the things which make you thankful to be alive.

#19. Complete the 30 Days of Horror Films Challenge.

#20. Give your opinion on an item in the news. Have a scroll through the latest headlines and it shouldn't take long before something riles you up enough to get writing. For example, HERE are my own posts on topical issues.

#21. Post a wishlist.

#22. Chronicle your mobile / cell phone history. We've all had fascias and ringtones we wish we hadn't!

#23. Suggest some methods of beating boredom. I just scanned in a page from an old magazine doing the same thing...

#24. In fact, scanning in retro magazines and advertising material can be a great post idea in itself.

#25. Write the A-Z of Me. I've listed quite a few blog meme / challenge ideas in this post because, well, they're always great when you're looking for something low effort to write about. Similar options include the 73 Question Vogue Challenge and Welcome to Me.


#26. If you've been anywhere other than your usual haunts recently, write about it.

#27. Rant about something which really gets your goat. Like the idea of 'smart' cards.

#28. 'A Day In The Life'

#29. Complete the 25 Days of Christmas Movies Challenge.

#30. Run a giveaway. Who doesn't love winning stuff? To check out my latest giveaways, click HERE.

#31. If you've been lucky enough to win a competition, let your readers know.

#32. Compile a list of things to do on a rainy day. Don't forget to tailor it to your niche.

#33. A picture says a thousand words, so why not try out a picture post.

#34. Put together a glossary of terms used in your blogging niche, workplace, hobby, etc.

#35. There are hundreds of special days throughout the year, from Squirrel Appreciation Day to Kiss a Ginger Day. There are bound to be a few you can find something to post about.

Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus! Happy Saint Dwynwen's Day!

#36. How do you make the perfect cup of tea / coffee?

#37. OOTD (Outfit of the Day) posts are always popular.

#38. Did you have a favourite toy as a child? Tell us about it.

#39. Post a video.

#40. Get somebody to guest post. Your readers get a fresh voice, and you don't have to write anything. Win-win, eh? I haven't actually hosted any guest posts yet, other than one by my partner, but you can check out ones I've written for other blogs HERE.

#41. Do you speak another language? Write a post in it - perhaps include a translation!

#42. Look up your horoscope for yesterday - did it come true?

#43. Write an open letter. (It wouldn't be a proper blog topic idea post without that one!)

#44. Debunk a myth. (Or that one!)

#45. Recap your week in a summary post.

Life This Week

#49. Complete the 30 Days of Photography Challenge.

#50. Share a quote. Quotes always go down well - you can check out my favourites HERE.

#51. If you collect something, make a full checklist.

#55. Tell your readers about your hobbies:

The Beginner's Guide To Comping (The Art of Entering - And Winning - Competitions)

#56. Write a story.

#57. Post about a way to save money.

#59. Complete the 30 Days of Disney Challenge.

#60. Research something and write about it. I went with Jack the Ripper.

#61. Post a bucket list.

#62. Make yourself a custom 404 page - then tell everyone about it.

#63. Been shopping lately? Share your haul with the world via your blog.

#64. Get your funny on and make people laugh. Or smile. Hopefully. Like with, You Know You Were a UK 90s Kid When....

#65. Tell people the story behind your blog name.


#66. Do you link your posts up to blog linkies? Why not compile a list of linkies you use. It'll also come in handy when you're planning out your weekly post schedule.

#67. If your house has been overrun by a small, human-like thing, post about your birth story.

#68. Tell your readers about your resolutions. It doesn't even need to be new year.

  31. Brilliant ideas! I am going to use some of these. Number 86 is the one that stands out to me as I've been blogging on and off since 2008 and have had 3 different blogs, so I could definitely do this. In fact, on one of my old blogs I posted extracts from my university diaries, which was also hilarious! #KCACOLS

  34. Well, it looks like I have a lot of material to work with, moving on! But really, I have a hard time planning ahead of time what I'm going to write about... It seems to have to just come to me so far. I'm sure there will be a moment in the future where I'm stuck on things to write about! I am truly impressed that you could find 101 things to write down for one post, good job!!
