You sit down to write a new blog post, but you just can’t seem to think of anything to say. Well, I’ve got good news for you!
Today I’m going to show you 25 extremely useful strategies that can get your creative juices flowing and get you writing posts again in no time!
How to get new blog ideas!
1. Perform audience research
If it has been a while since your last post, your audience may have changed based on what’s happening in the world.
For example, if after publishing 3 posts about building muscle mass suddenly everyone is talking about getting ripped – maybe it would be wise to change track and start blogging about building more endurance or losing weight?
The point is; perform audience research (Google Analytics is excellent for this) and find out what your audience is interested in these days, or of course, there’s always the old-fashioned way: ask them!
2. Write about something you’re passionate about
Writing about things you love genuinely can help you produce better content than anything else.
Not only will it mean that blog posts don’t take as long to write, but they’ll also actually be interesting to more than just yourself!
Be warned though; passion and motivation can also lead to burnout if you overdo it – so make sure that writing isn’t all you do on your journey towards success.
3. Look at competitors’ blogs
Sometimes great ideas come from looking at other people’s strategies and seeing how (or if!) they work for your own blog.
So, if you’re really struggling to get the creative juices flowing, why not look at what other people are doing in your niche? What’s working? What isn’t?
4. Ask yourself questions
Sometimes all it takes is for you to ask yourself a few key questions before getting started on a new blog post. For example:
What do my readers want to know about right now?
What can I say that someone else hasn’t already said?
How can I make this topic more interesting / easier to understand / faster-paced etc.?
These are just some ideas – there are infinite possibilities when it comes to asking yourself questions! Just be sure to choose ones that will help you produce quality content in the end.
5. Take a break
The final and in my opinion most important tip is simply to take a break and recharge your batteries if you’re completely stuck!
Blogging can be extremely time-consuming for some people, so just because you have a blog doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to get in the way of your social life or day job – after all, it’s just a website sometimes.
If you get into this mindset then motivation will become so much easier to come by. Good luck with writing guys!
6. Do some brainstorming
Brainstorming is really helpful if you are writing a new blog post. Why? It is because it gets your creative juices flowing and can help you come up with ideas for new posts.
You might want to make a list before you start brainstorming though so that you know what to write about. For example:
– How to build muscle mass
– What supplements should I take
– How much protein should I eat per day
– Natural ways of building muscle mass
7. Write an article that covers all the questions frequently asked by your readers
(and by frequently, we mean daily/weekly/monthly) and answer them in great detail!
People like articles like these because they cover the basics and give out the answers they are looking for; fast.
8. Write an article about something funny that happened to you
Write an article explaining why your readers should laugh more! (related to your niche, of course)
You can come up with some really funny ideas if you try hard enough – which is useful if this happens to be your niche!
9. Write an article on why people should love what they do (career-wise).
If your blog is about giving good advice in general then maybe take a different approach like writing an article about changing careers or even how becoming a parent has changed yours!
There are so many possibilities when it comes to writing articles within a topic most people love anyway: motivation. Don’t think of writing as a chore, just have some fun!
10. Write an article on what your favourite book is and why it’s your favourite.
You can then let people know more about the author and their background, which will be great if they’re new to blogging too.
After all, you never know – they might share the same interests as you!
11. Write an article on where you see yourself in five years’ time.
Why not take this opportunity to tell us a bit about yourself?
And don’t worry if you don’t think that there are any interesting things to say about yourself – we won’t judge you for that!
It’s always good to hear from your readers anyway, even if they aren’t famous bloggers!
12. Write an article about how blogging has changed your life for the better.
It’s always great to read these kinds of articles because most people are just starting out with their blog or have been doing it for a while but aren’t reaping any rewards or positive feedback.
You can provide them with some motivation – and maybe some practical tips on improving their blog too!
There are literally millions of other bloggers on this planet (with more popping up every day), so why not take the time to connect with them?
Even if you’re networking online, it still counts as meeting people and making new friends, right?

14. Come up with a list of useful tips for your readers.
This can be anything from recipes to workout regimes – the only limit is your imagination!
If you’ve got some good ideas then people will love reading them because they’re educational and provide practical solutions to their problems.
After all, that’s what makes a good blog post: content that informs and inspires others in a unique way!
15. Write an article about things you don’t understand or find hard to come by.
Maybe these are terms within the fitness industry, college education guidelines, cooking books…the possibilities are endless!
Take a look at Google Trends if you want to see what kind of questions people are Googling more frequently than others to get some ideas for your next blog post.
16. Write an article about things you wish people knew when it comes to [whatever you are blogging about].
For example, if I was doing a fitness blog then maybe I’d write an article about why people shouldn’t be afraid of the word ‘muscle’ when they go on weight loss journeys or how to properly measure fat percentage depending on what activity they’re doing in order to lose weight!
It’s all about helping people in your niche – that’s what makes a good blog post in any case!
17. Write an article about how much money you’ve made from blogging.
Seriously though, this is one way of getting readers hooked because it provides them with inspiration and motivation to maybe try blogging for themselves!
If you do this, why not link to your best posts in terms of traffic and tell them how long it took you to get them out there?
18. Write an article about why you find something so fascinating.
For example, if I loved writing health-related posts then I would write an article on what fascinates me about the human body.
What is it that drives us all to do things like training every day just because we know it will benefit our bodies in some way or another?
Why does walking up a flight of stairs feel difficult – but walking back down again feels easy? There are so many questions in life…and these ones for the philosophers out there!
19. Learn from other bloggers.
If you’ve got some spare time on your hands (or the opposite – an overflowing schedule!), then why not take this time to read other people’s blogs?
You can get some great tips and learn about different ways of writing posts, but it’s also good for inspiration!
20. Write an article about how blogging has changed your life for the worse.
Again, this is pretty self-explanatory, but there are probably hundreds of thousands or millions of bloggers out there who haven’t had much success with their blog yet and could do with a little inspiration.
Inspiring someone else will only inspire yourself as a blogger too!
21. Write a post completely from scratch with no plan whatsoever.
This might sound ridiculous, but sometimes coming up with a ‘pre-prepared’ blog post can actually suck the life out of blogging for you!
Instead, go back to your roots and write something without any preparation whatsoever for once.
This is also good because it means you’ll be more creative and will come up with something new and fresh that readers won’t have seen before.
22. Write about what you think bloggers should know when starting their own blog.
There’s no better way of inspiring people than telling them exactly what they need to do in order to succeed – or at least stay on track – when trying to make money from blogging!
23. Write an article about why blogging is important in the 21st century.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget how much blogging has changed the way we think about learning, communication, creating content and marketing your business!
24. Write an article about how you’re feeling since starting a blog.
This can be particularly helpful for new bloggers who may not have found success yet because they don’t know if their blog is going in the right direction and if it’s worth continuing with.
Tell them that they’re not alone and that everyone has the same feelings when trying to make blogging work – but most of all tell them what worked for you!
25. Write an article about whether you should start a blog at all.
If you haven’t started (or even if you haven’t found success yet!) then write one last post on why people shouldn’t give up before they’ve even started and why you believe that blogging is worth it.
You should try all of these methods and who knows? You might find a completely different way of getting new blog ideas that leads to your success.
Once you have found your success – why not tell us in the comments below about your experience with blogging so far?
Or if you’ve already been there and done it, let readers know what you did to find success too!
