129 Blog Post Ideas to Help You Get Started

Great bloggers write epic content. They provide resources, tips, and tools that help their readers. They've found the formula that mixes personal stories with professional.

But coming up with ideas for new content can be a struggle. Like your bicep, creativity is a muscle, the more you use it and the more you put it to the test, the stronger it will become.

129 Blog Post Ideas

Over the past few years, I've collected a list of blog post ideas. Some are very specific and include titles, outlines, and even resources to reference. Other ideas are concepts and theories that I haven't yet tested or explored.

Every business should have a blog. Even if starting a business isn't your goal, blogging is an excellent way to build a reputation online and eventually start a business.

But, as necessary as blogging can be, it can be equally as difficult to do. If I can help you blog with more frequency and regularity, write with more passion and conviction, and give you the voice your message deserves, I'll sleep better tonight.

Before I share the 129 blog post ideas to help you get started, here are some other great resources to check out to help you come up with additional blog post topic ideas:

The goal isn't to reinvent the wheel when it comes to your online platform. Your goal should be to provide the most relevant and useful content for your readers. Sometimes that means tools; sometimes that means sharing about your personal life so people can get to know you.

      4: Click “Save”

  • James Kinson says:

    Hi Ellory, the ideas you listed are awesome. I wondered if you might help me since I have a very niched topic. I help people buy cars they can truly afford, by which I mean pay cash. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated! http://cashcarconvert.com

    • Ellory Wells says:

      Hey James! Another fellow podcast, I love it!

      Looking over your site it’s hard to tell if you have blog posts by themselves or just podcast episodes connected show notes. If you do have blog posts, you may want to throw a link up in your top menu so they’re easy to find.

      Here are a few topic ideas:

      1: The # Ways Paying Cash for Your Cars Helps You Live Happier and Healthier
      2: Car Loans: The Silent Killer
      3: Share your story (did a car loan burn you and scar you for life?)
      4: # Resources Where You Can Find Quality Cash Cars
      5: 6 Must-Have Tips Before You Buy Your Next Car (I know it’s similar to your opt-in, but re-purposing is key!)

      Good luck!

  • Hi Ellory – Wonderful treasure trove of ideas- Thank you

    Appreciate the opportunity to have you take a look at my little corner of the world .. looking forward to your ideas and feedback..

    Nancy Bouwens

    • Ellory Wells says:

      Hey Nancy! Thank you for stopping by and for leaving a comment! It looks like you have two overlapping sites. Not sure, but you should be able to combine them into one, if you want, through a WordPress import/export. That may lead to less work for you.

      Since you’ve been blogging for a few years ( it looks like you started in 2011), you may already have a few of these, but here are a few thoughts.

      1: # Ways You Can Streamline Your Life and Live Simply
      2: # Times When I Had to Slow Down, Breath Deep, and Enjoy Life
      3: Have a Dream That’s Just Out of Reach? Here’s How to Grab it
      4: The Top # Blogs To Help You Live Simply
      5: How to Live with Less and Still Live Happy

      I hope that gets you going Nancy! Also, try tweaking your “Popular Posts” section on your sidebar. That’s a great place to showcase not only popular posts, but what you want people to look at.

      Keep it up!
