You know those days (sometimes weeks) that I’m talking about. I’m currently in a little season like that. My youngest son is getting married in two weeks! I’ve been using all my creative juices on rehearsal dinner and wedding details, so — yes — I’ve been frazzled and in need of some inspiration. Here are seven of my favorite ideas.
1. Create a List. (Like this one!)
Ideas: List your top 10 favorite recipes/destinations/cocktails. Write your bucket list or reverse bucket list (things you’ve already done). List reasons to or not to… List upcoming holiday gift ideas. List ways to improve your marriage or parenting. List which bible verses have been most meaningful to you. List your favorite books ever, or faves on a specific topic. List possibilities, thankfully, are endless!
2. An Interview.
Ideas: Think of someone your readers would be interested in reading about, and then share your Q&A conversation. Think outside the box… a funny interview with your kid or a poignant interview with your grandmother.
3. A Roundup.
Ideas: Decide on a theme and then gather some of your favorite content and images to link your readers to. You’ll bless other bloggers by driving traffic to their site, and you’ll provide valuable information to your readers as well! The subjects could be favorite summer wreaths, salads, cocktails, crafts… to name just a few.
4. A Guest Post.
Ideas: This is one I’m thinking about for the next couple of weeks. Inviting someone to guest post saves you time, introduces new readers to each of you, and provides the perfect opportunity to get to know other bloggers.
5. Share a Story.
Ideas: Readers love to hear funny tales, interesting adventures, and stories from the heart. Sometimes your story will be a huge encouragement to others, or it just might make them laugh on a day they needed to!
6. “Get-to-Know-Me” Post.
Ideas: When you start out blogging, most readers know you. As time goes on and your following grows, you begin to have a larger majority of followers whom you’ve never met personally. Why not do a post to let new readers get to know you a little better? The post could be “Ten Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me” or “Twenty Facts about Me.”
7. Post a cheat sheet, a template, tutorial or printable.
Ideas: Readers love posts that help them teach them something valuable, save time and money, or just make life easier or prettier (think pretty printable).
