Sweet ideas: 50 things to blog about

Fat Mum Slim /

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. I’ve got 50 sweet things to blog about, to get you out of your writer's block pickle!. Read them now!

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
3. Your favourite recipe, even if you’re the worst cook in the world. Sometimes there’s an art to making the best vegemite toast you could ever eat
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
14. The day you started blogging. What were you thinking?
15. The most difficult decision you’ve ever made. Write from the heart.
16. 7 things you learned from being a kid
17. A letter to your mum/grandma/child
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.

I hope this helps! Make sure you pop back and leave a link in the comments with any blog posts you write from the list.

    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!!

  • 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 😉

    • Don’t you hate it when you comment about autocorrecting and your iPhone autocorrects for you?!

      • Ha, this made me giggle!

  • Cara McKee

    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:
    Thank you. You don’t just live life inspired, you’re also inspiring.

  • You may have just outlined my next 50 posts! Thanks!

  • lizmheron

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

  • Will definitely blog some of this! … or maybe all of it! ♥

  • *Dream Weaver*

    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.

  • Yay!

  • Becthewordsmith

    Thank you. Duly inspired. What a great list!

  • Aditi Kaushiva

    M definitely taking some cues from here….Really interesting list! 🙂

  • 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 🙂

  • rajlakshmi

    awesome list.. thanks for writing this… I really needed it 😀

  • Kk

    Gorgeous suggestions; so much food for thought…. Thank you xx

  • suzi

    Awesome! Great ideas I will use. Thank you for this post.

  • This is such a great list! I pinned it so that I can save it for a day that I have terrible writers block!

  • Ashton Lamb

    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. 🙂

  • 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!

  • Nicky (Project Apart)

    Very inspiring! I should keep this in my notebook! Just in case…

  • Jennifer Gunn

    LOVE THIS! I shared it on my blog!

  • Kelly Doudna

    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!

  • Lisa Ann Blankenship

    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!

  • The Mama Minute

    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. 😉

  • Penelope Kaye

    Such great ideas thanks for sharing, I might just set myself a 10 day challenge and cherry pick from your list xox Penny

  • Cara McKee

    I wonder if it’s because I do photo-a-day that I feel compelled to do everything you suggest! I’ve collated links to all my posts inspired by the suggestions in this list here I’d really appreciate it if others could put links to their posts there too. It’s amazing how many different stories can come out of the same prompt!

  • Nada

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

  • Felicia Ann

    Thanks for this. I could definitely use it on my new blog. I love to write but I never know what to write and worry about what things people would even find interesting.

  • Lynne Maisel

    Great post – I used a letter to myself – but made it to my 21 year old self. Thanks!

  • 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!

  • Okay finding this list basically just made my day… thanks!

  • ccwithcyndi

    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…


      please visit my blog, I’d appreciate all the suggestions I can get. Thank you so much.
