50 IDEAS FOR YOUR NEXT BLOG POST

Constantly trying to create relevant content can be mentally exhausting. You have to come up with fresh and new blog ideas and posts to entertain your audiences. To nudge you in the right direction, I have compiled a comprehensive list of 50 brilliant ideas for your next blog post.

These are specific suggestions and ideas that you can customize or mold according to your needs, blog, and industry. Happy writing!

Simple, and relevant blog posts are guaranteed to drive amazing traffic to your website.
  • PRODUCT REVIEW- Review the product/service relevant to your industry and blog.
  • INTERVIEW- Ask an industry expert, colleague, mentor, or fellow blogger to share their experience or ideas on your blog. You can even shoot a video if you are confident in your shooting skills.
  • PHOTO COMPILATION- Sometimes images can brighten up your blog. Try shooting a series or different images to attract new readers and audiences to your blog.
  • BEST OF- Compile the ‘best of’ for any category or genre you prefer in your blog. Movie reviewers usually do ‘The Best Movies of 2019’ to rehash old content in a new form.
  • COLLABORATION- Partner with similar minded creators or bloggers to engage new customers and consumers. Writers can collaborate with illustrators or other writers to create a series of posts or videos.
  • VLOG- There is no limit to the way content can be consumed. Publish a vlog instead of a written post so your readers find it intriguing and interesting every time they visit your website.
  • WORST OF- Similar to the ‘Best of’, you can also do a ‘Worst of.’ Sharing your personal opinions on products that failed or don’t work effectively can provide real reviews to users and consumers.
  • INDUSTRY PROFILE– Crafting an industry profile on a celebrity, successful professional or entrepreneur in your field/industry is a great way to keep up with trends.
  • HOW TO- Often used in DIY and Beauty blogs, How to posts answer basic questions and are really popular with readers of all ages and groups.
  • SHARE YOUR STORY- How did you get your start? What made you choose this career? Your journey to the position you are in today.

  • PERSONAL GOALS- Show your readers your personal side, list your goals, and plan for the next one year or five years. Involving your readers in your personal life can create a deeper and meaningful connection for your brand.
  • ADVICE-Collate the best advice you have received, read, or heard and share it with your followers. It can be generic or industry specific.
  • NEWS- Some news and events are too big for any industry to ignore. Like CoVID-19 affected the majority of the world, use that and relate it to your industry, country, and city.
  • CHALLENGES- How is the industry going to adapt to challenges or the future? How do you want to pivot in the face of hardship? Suggest a strategy or proposal for your readers to tackle challenges in their professions and lives.
  • Q&A- Readers like to know that you are listening and valuing their comments and questions. Collate the regular questions or comments that you receive and answer them in a post or vlog.

  • EDUCATION- Highlight college courses or degrees that can benefit people in your field.
  • SKILLS- Provide a list of skills that readers can have with or without a degree and their relevance in your industry and field.
