I am going list out 5 blog post themes or blog post topic ideas. Take one of those ideas and use it as inspiration to go ahead and write your first or your next blog post.
So let’s get down to blog post idea.
1. Category Blog Post Idea.
The first blog post idea is how to blog post idea and essentially what you can do is obviously just take your category and just find something within that category. A tutorial of some kind that you can teach to other people.
A really good example if we went with the meal planning example.
Let’s say you’re a food blogger and you really wanted to talk about food blogging or meal blogging.
If you wanted to talk about meal planning then you would write a how to meal plan guide for beginners. You know that’s a very easy blog post to do sometimes.
The blog posts that we should be writing for our readers are hard for us to come up with. Because we are at a more advanced stage within our category and meal planning is a perfect example for that.
So, if you are really good at meal planning and you want to write a ton of blog posts about it. That’s fabulous!
Because there’s a lot of people out there that struggle with it but you can’t write at. They are just at the advanced stage of meal planning.
You have to go back like 10 steps and think about.
What it was like when you didn’t know anything about meal planning and just kind of put yourself in their shoes and this is where the blog post idea.
It would kind of fit in it’s a how to and you will just teach somebody something.
That’s incredibly valuable and the example in this case is how to meal plan for beginners.
2. Series Blog Post Idea.
The Second blog post idea I have for you is a series idea. Now this you can actually turn into a couple of different blog posts.
That’s a huge bonus because you’re getting bigger bang for your buck. If you will although you’re not paying anything to write these but again let’s go back to the meal planning.
Example, let’s say you want to post a meal plan for the entire Month. Well that would be a really long blog post and that is a bit excessive. I don’t recommend doing that.
So what I would recommend doing is either sorting it by day. Do a blog post for each day of that meal or more commonly what I see is by week.
You would have four different blog posts you know meal plan for week one, two, three and four and that’s kind of how this series works in itself.
Now the reason this is a blog post idea is even though you are posting four different blog posts . You want to connect them somehow, so that people realize this is a part of a series.
Obviously common sense tells you that. If you have a meal plan for August and they only see seven days there. They will put two and two together and say there’s to be other blog posts. That have the rest of the month right.
But what you should do within that blog post is link to all of the other months.
So, don’t just write the blog post. Also inner link to all the other blog posts that correspond within that series.
Another great example of serious blog post is when home décor or DIY are bloggers is my vocabulary right there.
I’m not sure but when they will take a renovation project that they did and then go ahead and create different blog posts for them.
So if they remodeled their cute farmhouse and they did all these different rooms it would be way too much to put all of that into one blog post.
They would come out with a series of renovation series or something cutesy and then they would link to all the other blog posts within each blog post.
So that readers could quickly identify that this was not just a single solitary blog post, it was a part of a series the next blog post idea.
3. Review Blog Post Idea.
A review blog post. These are very popular because it’s great to be able to include an affiliate link if you can within a blog post.
But I also think that it’s really beneficial to the reader so going back to the meal planning example.
If people are like don’t really know their way around the kitchen or haven’t spent a ton tiny in the kitchen or they’re just don’t really kneel plan a whole lot and you have.
You use the instant pot in a lot of your meal plans. Then it’s a fabulous idea to go ahead and do a review blog post on the instant pot.
All the things you love about it, all the things you hate about it, where people can find it different sizes and functions and things like that.
Because an instant pot kind does everything right really quick.
We’re so focused on just providing valuable content that teaches people how to do something in particular. Which is fabulous but on the flip side we could extend and stretch our content a bit more.
If we go ahead and look within those tutorials to see. If there’s any product or service that we could do a review on. When you think about it how many of us buy anything off of Amazon that has zero reviews right.
We are a review driven Society especially because reviews are so easily accessible online.
I know I don’t buy anything off of Amazon without making sure there are plenty of reviews. That way I know I’m .
Purchasing something that I’m probably going to want to keep same thing with the different adventures that people have when they go through your content.
If you were a food blogger or you’re a home décor blogger or a renovation blogger fixer upper whatever it is. If you are utilizing products that all definitely do a review blog posts on them the next blog post idea .
I feel like it kind of gets you into the practice a bit faster which is really beneficial when you’re starting out the next blog post idea.
4. Mistakes Blog Post Idea.
The mistakes blog post don’t be afraid to be vulnerable on your blog while we would probably try to shy away from sharing all the mistakes that we’ve made with meal planning or whatever our niche is.
Actually it’s a great idea to share mistakes. I should probably write more and more blog posts about all the mistakes made in the past couple years with my business simply.
Because I think that while we love learning from our own mistakes it can be even better.
Shall I say that we can learn from other people’s mistakes but this kind of blog post is just really great for humanizing your brand as well and it shows your readers.
5. Secret Blog Post Idea.
I don’t just show you all of the perfect stuff. I’m showing you all of the human stuff that happens behind the scenes and you know hopefully.
You can learn a few things from my last blog post have idea for you is to write a secret blog post.
Everybody loves secrets and if you are a meal planning champ then you should definitely be sharing your secrets with everybody. Especially people who you know aren’t very good at meal planning anytime.
I see a blog post that claims to have my favorite secrets for XYZ and it’s a topic. That I’m really interested in or just struggling with.
Then I definitely want to read it, because I want to know all the secrets that people have figured out.
When handling whatever topic it is that they write about now.
When you’re writing this kind of blog post. I definitely recommend taking it a step further or training or trying to get a bit more specific in your title.
So instead of saying my best secrets for meal planning. I would recommend to write something that says my best secrets for meal planning in only 25 minutes that’s very specific.
And it gives people something to visualize when they click over to your blog post.
It’s not just random secrets. Its secrets that helps them accomplish something very important.
So that is going to wrap it up for all five of my ideas.
When you are writing any blog post on any topic or with any theme actually you’re helping people with something very specific.
That’s what people really love to see they love to be helped by you and it feels really good to provide valuable content.
Your goal is not to write Diaries. It is to write information or content that will genuinely help people accomplish something or inspire them to accomplish XYZ .
So always keep that in mind when you write your blog posts.
