Blogging can be tough, especially when you first start out. There’s no fanfare, no audience (or so it feels) and so you slave away at each and every post only to underwhelmingly release it into the blogosphere, watching tumbleweed blow across your analytics. For even the reptilian like thick skinned amongst us, this can be tough and it can even put people off blogging all together. Well, as someone who has started and (modestly) grown two blogs, I can honestly say that as with most things, consistency is king. Keep plugging away, keep being honest, keep writing, keep blogging, keep engaging with your peers and the readers will come, I can promise you that. For anyone that feels like they’re hitting a brick wall of inspiration, I have created a little treat for you. Something that will hopefully help with getting those creative juices flowing!
The trick to blogging well and creating good content is providing value, what do you know that others might not? For example, you might be a born and bred Londoner however your reader (your next 20 readers!) might be a brand new expat or tourist. So what might they want to read about? I’m going to use little prompts such as this one to create 20 post ideas that will hopefully help to kickstart your creativity!
In no particular order…
So, I hope you find this list helpful, let me know if you have anything to add to the list!
Also, if you like the list and found it useful then we would be super grateful for any pins, shares or comments!
