24 Blog Post Ideas (For When You Have Nothing to Post)

Because it happens.

To us all.

Blogger's block. 

Sometimes I think this is actually worse than writer's block, because, well, I HAVE A SET DAY TO POST.  And I need to get a post cranked out by then.  AND it's not always easy! (also tip: if you're wondering about setting a schedule and posting one day every week, take my advice and don't do what I do--start brainstorming the night before it's supposed to go up. JUST DON'T.)

I know that there have been so many times where I just sit in front of the computer staring at that awful blinking cursor for wayyyy too long, so today I decided to round up a few blog post ideas that will hopefully give you a little blog-gy inspiration if you're stuck in a rut :) I know most you all are bloggers, so YOU KNOW THIS.  BLOGGING CAN BE HARD, but we can do it, y'all! *cheers*

+ If you just had a great week, write and tell us about it!
+ Have some motivational quotes that you want to share? I love finding new inspiration :)
+ Round up some of your all time favorite pictures and compile them in an inspirational post!
+ Do a post full of GIF's. They're the best.  END OF STORY.
+ Share some of your favorites! These can be in any category as well.
+  Write about....blogging!! Share your work space, your favorite tools, what goes into a blog post, how you find inspiration, or some of your tried-and-true tips.
+ If you don't have anything to blog about, try writing a wishlist! What are some things you've been wanting recently?
+ Write a letter to your younger and/or older self.
+ 10 Things You Can't Live without?
+ Write a blog post about why you started blogging.
+ Share some of your favorite books (this one shouldn't be too hard =) 
+ Do you know some cool HTML/CSS codes? Share them with the rest of us!

+ Just finished decorating or designing your room? Share a few pictures! I know I love seeing how other people decorate, and it's a fun post!
+ Make a reverse bucket list.  What have you already accomplished in life?
+ Share some of your pet peeves.
+ Taken any great pictures lately? Put them together into a photography post. I love these kinds of posts so much.   HELLO INSPIRATION.
+ Share a favorite recipe!
+  Write down a list of some things that people might not know about you.
+ Do a this-or-that post.  You can find questions online asking which your prefer between two choices, and write your answers down in a post.
+ Write about what your passionate about (i.e. your hobbies, etc.)
+ x Things I've Learned in x Years (This one's great for a birthday!)
+ Create a reader survey!
+ Write a slam poem. Sometimes they're the most meaningful posts.
+ Share your thoughts on something! It can be anything, honestly.  People will love to hear your thoughts.
+ And when all else fails, try writing a post of blog post ideas! It can actually be really inspiring ;)

So I hope that you all liked this post! Some of these ideas I've actually done in the past, and I know that sometimes I feel like re-doing them because it's BEEN SO LONG and it would be an easy idea too xD BLOGGING CAN BE TOUGH, GUYS.  But it is so worth it ♥ SO TELL ME, is it easy for you to come up with blog post ideas? Do you have any more that I should add to that list up there? I think it became a little easier and harder at the same time when I started scheduling posts for once a week, because I knew that I always had to be thinking of an idea, yet IT'S SO EASY TO PROCRASTINATE.  Usually I'm trying to rack my brain trying to come up with a blog post the night before it's supposed to go up *laugh* AH THE BLOGGING LIFE.

❆ How To Survive A Snow Day ❆

SO, this was not the original post that was supposed to go up this week, but... what do you do when you wake up Tuesday morning to a world of white and a blizzard blowing in your face? YOU WRITE ABOUT IT OF COURSE.  I'm not even kidding you though....

 Snow. Snow. Snow.  EVERYWHERE.

It only maybe, kind of, just a little, sent me to bliss? I MEAN, IT'S SNOW.  This winter was so incredibly warm (which is kind of um, strange.  Especially for where I live.  LAST WINTER we could skating on the pond almost every day for a week, it was THAT FROZEN.), but this winter we apparently had summer in February?!?! And then we get a blizzard in March.  Cool.  cougcoughcoughcough very cool if you get what i mean 

And what's even more ironic is that we got hit with this blizzard (I AM NOT KIDDING Y'ALL.  It is a WINTER STORM.) two days after Daylight Savings? Spring is next week? It doesn't really look like spring out there, people.  More like...um, middle of January? Yep.

On another note, if you're wondering why I am writing this post (about SNOW) when spring is literally in five days (!!!!!!), it's probably because IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE SPRING FOR ME AND I FEEL LIKE WRITING ABOUT SNOW. *sobs in a corner* Also, for all of you guys who are currently in eighty degree weather, if you could send that my way that would be great thanks.

BUT if you find yourself in a situation like me, with two feet of snow needing to be shoveled off the driveway, let's celebrate and drink hot chocolate, aye?
This one is super important, whether you're outside or inside.  Our house actually has a wood stove (Which is equivalent to THE BEST THING EVER), and I started it up a few hours after I woke up, and Y'ALL.  There's nothing better and more perfect than watching the snow fall and hearing the wind howl and listening to the sound of wood crackling in the stove.  OH MAN.  Just writing that made me shiver.  It's the best.

And it's also really important to stay warm when you're outside too :) I LEARNED THIS YESTERDAY.  Especially if it's still snowing and the wind is blowing, stay w a r m.  Plus, who wants to get sick anyway? 

THIS ONE IS THE BOMB ACTUALLY.  We were talking about in Spanish class on Monday how it's so much more nicer when we know for sure school will be out on a snow day so that we can sleep in.  HOLLA.  I usually get up pretty early in the morning, and I cannot EXPLAIN how amazing it is to be able to sleep in on a school morning like ASDKFJSDL it's perfect okay.  I definitely recommend catching up on sleep if you have a snow day.  It's good for you and who doesn't love more sleep?! 
 DEFINITELY.  Though, I've found it to not-be-the-easiest to take pictures of snow :P Any tips on that? I've tried to capture falling snow as it comes, and I'm kind of getting it, BUT IT COULD BE BETTER. There's nothing better than working on your photography skills on a snow day, right?

Haha, of course, duh. I mean, how much more perfect could your life become?? You know that cookie recipe you've wanted to try for a while? WELL throw aside all your fears and conquer it.  JUST DO IT. *cough* OR if cooking is more your thing you can do that too.  Just...food, people.  It's the best.
BECAUSE IT'S SNOWING AND YOU HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO.  Wow, this is like the picture perfect snow day, honestly.  Grab a book and just read.  It's pretty much the best thing you could do on a snow day.  Plus, it will get your mind going and ready to WRITE.  Which leads me to the next idea....
It needs written, okay.  Those words have to get out out of your head and onto the paper.  It might be hard.  You might not want to do it.  BUT IT'S IN YOU.  Write even when you don't feel like it.  It's what you do, and you can't quit just because you don't feel like it.  THERE'S 2 FEET OF SNOW OUTSIDE, YOU'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.  So just sit down, turn off your wifi, and w r i t e. 
(I also wrote all of that for myself because hahahahaha look who's not meeting her deadlines?!) 
*lets out a huge sigh* MAYBE? JUST MAYBE? I know for me it's the last thing I want to do on a snow day, but sometimes, snow days are actually really great for getting. things. done. It's not always fun, and sometimes you have to really put your mind to it to actually get to work, but it's one of the most rewarding things.  To be able to say at the end of an awesome day off "I accomplished so much today" is hands down such a good feeling. Also seriously that driveway needs shoveled get to it already.

SO.  YEAH.  That happened.  Tell me what the weather's like for you right now!? It's crazy how different it can be in different places.  I know most of you probably aren't crawling out after being buried under an Everest of snow. xD  I'm just grateful that we still have our electricity though.  OUCH. Have you ever seen snow? THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT TO IT, TBH.  Or do you normally get a lot of it?  I was looking at GIF's online, and I found these two that I thought pretty much sum up my feeling about snow and winter.

When I see snow at the beginning of winter:

By the end of winter:

XD But do y'all even like snow? I do....IN MODERATION.  But since we didn't really get a ton of it overall this winter, I really don't mind this that much. (But there's still a part of me that's yelling SUMMER right now ugh) #life 

BUT LET'S TALK! What are some of your favorite things to do on snow days? ♥

the little things | #4

HAPPY WEDNESDAY, YOU GUYS.  It's a great day ♥ 

So, I don't know if any of you have been reading my blog long enough to remember (if you do, MAJOR SHOUT-OUT TO YOU.), but I used to do posts called "the little things", and they were posts where I just listed a whole bunch of things that have been making this girl  really happy right now.  The little things, you know? Things that most people pass by, but if we really take the time to stop and live in each and every single little moment, we notice.

I feel like so often in today's society, we pass by the little things wayyyy too quickly.  AND I AM SO GUILTY OF THIS.  I love, love making lists (to-do lists are epic, yo), but sometimes I get so focused on "I NEED TO DO THIS" or "NO TIME FOR ANYTHING. WORK. WORK." And before you know it, a whole day is gone. And life goes on.

GUYS.  We need to stop and focus on the little things.  Because they're what really make life beautiful. I know for me personally, when I just stop and take the time to notice the small things...they make my day so much more brighter.  It's one of the best feelings. 

SO here are a few things that have been making me smile recently :)

+ WEATHER - If you're scrunching up your forheaead right now wondering why I put weather in all caps, I GOT YOU.  See, originally, (like as .124 seconds ago) I had 'warm weather' typed out! RIGHT? Everyone loves that.  IT'S MARCH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.  Well, you know how I was saying the weather was having an identity crisis in the last post? WELL IT COULD'VE STAYED NICE. Today was rainy and...cold. Bleh.  But I've figured out that I actually kind of do like rainy days? They're perfect for writing and baking and good things like that.

+ Friends who GET you - This has got to be one of the best feelings in the world when you're talking to a friend and laughing and you realize that they GET YOU.  Your sense of humor, your likes, your dislikes, your preferences, your quirks--and they understand that.  BEST FEELING EVER.  These friends are the best ones, just saying =)

+ The perfect outfit - Which, also translates into making the day a whole lot more perfect.  I think it goes along with making you feel more confident, and when you feel more confident, HEY WHY NOT TAKE OVER THE WORLD.

+ Dark chocolate - THE BEAUTY THAT IS DARK CHOCOLATE.  I have...no words.  It's amazing and I'm really thankful for it !!

+ Doing what you do - YES.  I'm not sure how to really describe this one,  To me, it's just not looking to the left or right, wondering what other people think every single waking second, but instead focusing on the callings God has for you.  It's being fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.  It's realizing that life is not about pleasing other people, but doing the right.  And it's an amazing feeling.  There is true peace and joy in being fearless.

+ Peace - Nothing compares to it. And life is so much  more beautiful and amazing and lovely when there's that everlasting peace hidden in my soul.  Jesus is my source of peace, and for Him I am so grateful.  (Also, side note, but you should definitely listen to It is Well With My Soul by Vocal Point.  ♥)

+ Baking - You want to know how much I loved writing this post? I had typed baking on this list yesterday, and I'm pretty sure that just because I wrote it down and thought about it I got the inspiration today to come home and bake cupcakes. Did I have time to bake cupcakes? No.  Should I have done it? Ehh, there were definitely other things I could have done.  Did I let that stop me? NO SIR. (BAKERS UNITE)


ugh low quality pic >_<
+ Laughing - I was listening to a sermon the other day and he was quoting off statistics about laughing like no other, let me tell you.  But SOME OF THEM WERE INTERESTING.  It's insane how much laughing can improve people's health, mind, and general well being.  Like...who would have thought? It's crazy, but I am so grateful for those little moments where I can laugh and laugh (and with people I know and care about? YES). It's good for the soul.

+ Oranges - Because they're in the graphic for this post and ALSO ORANGES. They're aesthetic and beautiful and healthy and VITAMIN C, BRO.

There are a few things I'm thankful for right now! I hope you liked this post and thanks for reading =) It makes my day.  WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN LOVING RECENTLY?? It's crazy how much the little things are the big things, right?! IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO NOTICE THEM.  What are some of your favorite "little things" in life? Sometimes it blows me away how beautiful life is.  God is good. xx 

Have an awesome week and love the little things ♥
