If you’ve ever had writer’s block you’ll know it can be a liiiittle bit painful to come up with something creative to write about. It’s almost impossible. Below I’ve listed 50 things that might help out in those times of need. You’re welcome.

1. That thing that happened in high school that pretty much changed your life forever
2. The worst movie you ever did see, and why

4. The day you left home
5. That one time you told a huge lie and kinda got away with it {or perhaps you didn’t and that would make an even better blog post! Cringe}
6. The hardest thing you’ve ever been through
7. 9 things you just can’t handle {gross things like ugly toes etc etc}
8. Your day in photos {take a photo every hour from wake to sleep}
9. Your most excruciatingly embarrassing moment. We’ve all got one.
10. A letter to your 16 year old self. What advice would you give?
11. Your celebrity dinner party. Who would you invite?
12. A how-to post on something you know nothing about
13. Your first love/kiss, and don’t skip the awkward details

18. An anti-bucket list: the things you hope to never do before you die
19. The last thing that made you cry
20. Your earliest childhood memory
21. That thing that really gets your goat {Is it the way people drive? That sniffing noise your partner makes?}
22. The worst Christmas/Birthday you ever had {make it funny!}
23. What your Facebook status might be in 2018
24. What you’re addicted to, and why
25. Write your obituary
26. Write a how-to post on something you actually know a lot about, as obscure as it might be
27. Write a FAQ {frequently asked questions} post. This could be questions you get asked about your blog, or questions you get asked by your kids over and over again. Think outside the box.
28. That time that you met a complete stranger
29. Fashion: Your top 5 favourite bags/dresses/looks/hair-dos/shoes right now
30. What you’ve learned about life so far
31. Brain dump. What’s on your mind right now
32. Something you lost
33. Bad habits. Share yours and why you won’t give it up. Ever.
34. Who people think you are, compared to who you really are
35. If you only had one day to live, how you’d spend it
36. A thank you note to a ‘thing’, like coffee, or trashy TV
37. A guide to the town you live in
38. What you want to be when you grow up {yes, there’s still time}
39. Something you found
40. The menu for your last meal ever
41. A response to a popular blog post written by someone else – an opinion piece where you put your cranky pants on
42. Write a review: on anything… a new food, a book you just read, an App
43. Find your most popular blog post and then write a second series of it, or an update on it
44. Do a DIY. A step-by-step guide on how to make something
45. Set a goal, and a plan on how to get there
46. Create a post asking for advice on something that’s troubling you. People love to offer wisdom
47. Share the favourite room in your home, and why you love it
48. Top 5: Share a post with the top 5 blogs you just can’t get enough of
49. Share a secret you’ve never told anyone. Until now
50. Write a list post on things for people to blog about. Pretty much like this one just here.

  1. This is the most inspiring post I have read in a very long time … I just sat down and started writing my own list of new ideas that suddenly popped into my mind! Thank you so so much!!

  2. Would also make a great post series for a year long linky, Chantelle! PS My iPhone is trying to get me into trouble by autocorrections linky to kinky! There’s another blog post idea 😉

  3. Wow Chantelle, there’s some scary things in that list, but I feel up for a challenge, I may take you on… Be prepared though, for TOO MUCH INFORMATION! You are very good at inspiring people. I’ve felt compelled to do the photo a day challenge since I started almost a year ago, and thinking of you and wee Luella Blue inspired my last blog post: http://ohwedo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/recovering-from-birth-6-things-i-know.html
    Thank you. You don’t just live life inspired, you’re also inspiring.

  4. I love this! I have been feeling SUPER stuck lately and I was looking for something to kickstart my writing. This is perfect!

  5. Not only are they interesting prompts but they make good things to think about. I really like no.10 – and as a twist, I wonder what my 16 year old self would say to me now if she could get a chance. LOLs.

  6. Awesome list – Thank you! It’s sometimes so inspiring to find lists like this because it also gives a glimpse into what other successful bloggers (like you) find interesting 🙂

  7. This is great! Thank you.. I have been meaning to start a blog for a while, but never knew where to start. Well yesterday I started with #1. 🙂

  8. Well I blog about travel so my topics sometimes jump out at me, especially since I travel so much but this list is so helpful for those that need it. And your list is so thorough! Actually, there are a few on this list that I can use so thank you!

  9. I love writing but I like it better when I don’t choose the topic myself, so thanks for this list, Chantelle—it’s just the kick-restart I needed. I’m five days into my personal 50 days of blogging! bloggingkelly.com

  10. How do I start a blog? I haven’t really written in years and almost daily I ask myself why I’m doing what I love!

  11. This is awesome! I finally started my started my mummy blog and need some oomph to help me past the writers block. And the I-have-ridiculous-insecurities-and-fears block. 😉

  13. Really love this list! I’ve been struggling to find my “voice” on my new blog. I think most of these will help 🙂 Thanks! babyandabirkin.com

  14. Wow! This is like the tenth article I am reading on the same topic and I must say this is the only one where I found something different and useful. All others were just copied stuff which everyone actually knows. some of your points are really amazing. Good job!

  15. thank you! this REALLY helped! I was looking all over for something as useful as this 🙂 it made my day.

  24. Came across this when ready to post my 3rd blog post – started on a whim, but with passion after feeling (for 24 hours) that I’d wanted to do it forever! I googled ‘things to blog about’ and came across this post. Having been a casual reader of your blog for a while and a regular photoaday-er (@dancingkangaroo) on and off for the last couple of years, I was delighted to find it 🙂 So thought I’d say thanks 🙂

    With love xx

  25. I’ve been looking for a great place to get idea when I’ve been a little short on ideas and am leading a dull life for the month. This is the first unique and interesting list I’ve seen.

  26. I am so happy I stumbled upon your blog because I am just trying to start one myself, and this gave me so many ideas! I actually just posted my first one based on one of your ideas. Check it out if you have the chance!

  27. Awesome post! It is always nice to have a go-to list of things to inspire you and write about. I know I’ll be using this as a reference in my future blogging! Thanks for sharing your ideas! 🙂

  28. I just started a blog last week and still trying to get the hang of it. This could really help me spice up my blog! Thank you. You’re the best!

  29. this is great. I’ve always been dreaming of starting a blog but the fear of obscurity has always been…………you know

  30. thank you so much for these ideas about what to blog, these will defiantly help me with my blog. much appreciated.

  31. Such an amazing list. What I love about this list is that it will never get old. Thank you for the inspiration Chantelle.

  32. OMG! I so needed this. Thank you so much for sharing sadly I was reading through it and designing my own topics while at work hahahaha…One thing I wanna say though, I love your tone of voice, I feel like I can hear you talking although I have never met you.

    Like you, I started blogging a long time ago when blogs had just started then quit for a while and decided to start again. Unfortunately I got hacked two years ago and I never recovered from it. I lost all the hard work me and my contributors had put into the blog which = no sleep at times etc. I had a little over 800,000 followers and I just lost everything. I became dead.

    I just started blogging again this year and so far its been really slow because I feel left behind with how social media has taken off. But reading your blog, your suggestions and your enthusiasm has given me a little fire and maybe I can get into it again, maybe. I have written a few things down to start with and am on my way to greatness hopefully…
