Blogging Ideas or Prompts for Your Blog
At some point of our lives, we feel lost on what to blog or write about. Personally, I felt a bit lazy on what to share or write about because, life happened. There was a point in my life that I had nothing to share. But then again, I thought, maybe it’s just me enjoying those moments without thinking what photos to use or even other materials to include.
If you have been following me on Pinterest, I’ve got a board entirely for blogging. It includes pins that inspire me or ignite me. Honestly, it is a great platform to share your content and to learn new things about design, calligraphy and even blogging itself!
So, why create something like this?
A blog post like this has been around and posted by other bloggers. The ideas I may share here may be posted or shared already by another blogger. Nevertheless, I just want to share some things that have always been inspiring me to write.
As a creative individual, we have those struggles. Most of the time, it would challenge us or even take over our creativity and just let us wonder what to do next. Some get stuck at the point and never get out. In the end, they would just give up without fighting it off.
Personally, I do not want that to happen to you. I want you to strive and fight the monsters within. It’s somehow related to mental health and all of us must be concerned about our own mental health as well. If we are not mentally healthy, we cannot perform well in any job that we try to accomplish.
Without further ado, here’s the list of the first batch of blogging prompts.
#1 Tell something about yourself
Most of your followers would want to know you on a personal level. I, myself, would want that because we are all normal beings behind this blog. It’s fun to get to know someone by knowing a little part of themselves.
Bonus: There’ll be always something common between you and your followers. Those will bring you closer to each other.
Isn’t it fun?
#2 What are some things you do?
Remember to ask yourself, do you have a hobby or work that you would like to share?
Well, there are those kinds of work or hobbies that can be easily understood by just looking at it. While some may have a hard time learning what you are doing, sharing something or maybe a story would bridge that gap.
You may also give tips or maybe what you’ve experienced while doing that work or hobby.
Not only that you’re educating your readers and followers but also, you’re sharing something that would connect you on a more personal level.
#3 Pet Peeves
Are there some things you hate or piss you off?
Mine’s seeing people use “stuffs” instead of “stuff” or even “equipments” instead of “equipment.” Call me a grammar nazi but I just want to raise awareness about using proper grammar. It’s for your own good! But know this, I correct the people I am friends with or the ones who have their facts confused. I make sure as well that when I correct them it’s polite and backed up with facts or research or even reference persons.
#4 Share about someone you admire or look up to
This person may also be the someone who has inspired you to push your dreams or goals. He or she maybe someone most of us know or someone within your family.
For me, it’s nice to read something that inspires you.
- In one way or another, reading your story or blog post will also inspire others in various ways. Some may even write their own version too or just admire the person that you admire also.
- It gives another person an idea of what to write the next time or even for another kind of content. May it be video or photo, everyone will surely think of something when inspired. Right?
#5 First place you travelled to
This may be of a wide scope since I did not mention if it’s domestic or international travel. Some bloggers whose niche is travel may not consider this since all their blog’s content is travel. Yet, this could be a point where you could tell why you started a life of travel.
My first out of the country trip was when I was in third (3rd) year high school. It was in Hong Kong. I could even still remember the time when we went to Hong Kong Disneyland. The child in me would always scream and thump whenever I reminisce to that moment.
These photos are taken when we were in our province, Albay. It’s here in the Philippines. You can find the majestic Mayon Volcano there.
I personally might continue this as a blog series to help share ideas to fellow writers or bloggers out there. You may have seen these already but I’ve actually gotten a list where I enumerated everything. I’ll be grouping prompts by five (5) so it wouldn’t be quite tedious to read.
If in case you got the idea from this list, I would love to read it so feel free to tweet me or contact me whenever possible.
