10 Blog Post Ideas

We’ve all been there before. You know you need to keep your business blog active, but sometimes you just don’t have an interesting topic to write about. The only problem with that is that once you get stuck the pit of “nothing to write about” it’s pretty hard to get out. And before you know it, it’s been weeks, maybe even months, since you’ve last posted on your business blog.

So, if you’ve gotten super busy over the past few months, or you’re just all out of topics, I decided to give you 10 blog post ideas you can use when you don’t know what to write. These are all evergreen posts, so no matter what’s going on, these topics will work for you and for your target audience.

1. Run a contest

Running a contest is a great way to get additional traffic on your website.

2. Review books/products/films

Reviews deliver a lot of value to your followers, and people are constantly looking for honest opinions, not the fake ones that the web is full of.

3. Create a guide/tutorial

Tutorials and guides provide a lot of value, which can help drive traffic and convert followers. As an experienced blogger, I teach others how to start and maintain a blog.

We create a lot of tutorial videos for our clients for how to solve various problems with their technology. If you have a skill that others could benefit from, create one and post it on your site as a tutorial.

4. Publish a post of facts

Facts are literally at your fingertips right now. Why not compile a list of facts relevant to your business or blog. They can be really random, or extremely interesting and useful.

5. Publish an in-memoriam post

You can write a post about someone in your industry or a public figure who has recently passed.

6. Write an “on this day” post about the most important dates in history

This is a great way to point out relevant historical events that are relevant to your business. This is a great one that you could repeat monthly or even weekly if you’re up to it.  Pick a country/war/invention/company, and write down the important dates of it.

7. Talk about your latest event experiences

Share a recent experience you had with your readers. This could literally be anything from a concert or a festival you attended. Wanna make it even better? Tell a life story and relate it to a business lesson you learned.

8. Create a blog post about your bad habits

Do you have any bad habits as a business owner? Maybe you stay out late, or you never finish reading books. Everyone always talks about the good habits of successful entrepreneurs, flip the script and share your bad ones.

9. Research and analyze a topic in your industry

Research and analyze a topic in your industry. This is a great way to position yourself as a leader in your industry. This is a great investment of your time and tactic to grow your followers.

10. Share your favorite blogs/bloggers in one post

Sharing the blogs, bloggers, or even podcasts is simple and easy. You’ll add value to your audience, but depending on how much traffic you get, you might get some attention from the people you admire in your industry or others. And don’t be afraid of sharing the resources with your readers, they’ll be grateful and you’ll solidify yourself as a trusted source.
