BLOGGING INSPIRATION: Top 10 Posts I always click on


I don't know about you but a lot of bloggers seem to have what you all call "writers block" where the mind suddenly goes blank and you have no idea what to post about.

I have come across a number of blog posts with a long list of ideas / suggestions on what to write about and I thought it would be great to do one of my own.

Instead of just listing a long list of topics I thought it would be great to put together my top 10 topics I like to read about. 

This means if ever these topics pop up on my news feed I would ALWAYS click on them.

Again when I am writing these types of posts I must stress that these are things that appeal to me so it won't work for everyone but it may help some of you!  : )

In no particular order here they are....

Home posts
Tour of your home, home decor purchases, how you decorate your home, home inspiration mood boards, DIY, before / after decorating, your wish list your your home etc... This even includes things like kitchen plates, mugs, bowls and so on... 

Food / Baking
I am a food addict so I love seeing photos of your dinner, meals out, recipe ideas, baking and generally anything food related. Restaurant recommendations is another one of my favourite.

Holiday / Travel / Days Out
I am real nosey and I love seeing photos of your holidays, days out, weekend shopping trips and so on. It's a little bit like taking your readers with you and showing snippets of your life!

Sharing Your Blogging Tips
This one always gets lots of reads sharing your tips / advice with others. I have done a few recently 

Wishlists
I am forever creating wishlists and they seem to be popular on my page. Wishlists for beauty, fashion, home, holidays anything you can think of.

Hauls
This one is always a good one that get people excited to see what you have purchased beauty / fashion or just a haul from a shopping trip. Maybe it could be a Topshop Haul or Primark Haul...

Blogger Events
So this is any blogger events you have been invited to, PR events, product launches etc... Again these are like taking your readers with you and they get excited to hear about new items being launched.

Pets
If you have a dog, cat or any other cute looking pet introduce them in your posts and see how your readers react. If they show interest you can make is a regular feature. For example for me I have a Shih Tzu dog so I could write about how to care for my dog, training tips etc... This shows more of an insight to your life and I find readers love that! Often if my dog Tula pops up in photos you guys always tell me she`s cute! In fact she`s even got her own Instagram account with more followers than me!!!! 

Monthly Favourites
This is a simple one just showing what things you have been loving the past month, it really doesn't get easier than that! Again this could be anything from food, clothing, shoes, make up, book...anything!

Skin Care Product Reviews
For me personally I have a big interest in skin care from creams, serums, face wash etc... So if something new comes out I love reading about it. I think in general readers love product reviews and this includes the popular make up reviews.

  6. I love posts which double as blogging tips - sometimes I worry my content it's 'clickable'! I love food posts too and always click on monthly favourites because I'm nosey and need inspiration!

  8. Great post! I have a similar taste to you in what I like to read - I also love to see what books other people are currently loving/hating too! But home décor posts are probably one of my favourites.

  14. Sometimes I even have few ideas and when I need to write I forget everything. From then always when I come up with a new idea I write it in my organization notebook which is also great to have.
    PS Nice post :)

  18. I have this too sometimes! What I definitely do seem to struggle on is getting starting - I mean how to start writing my blog. I don't know about you, but I do find this difficult sometimes! More often than not, I like browsing the craft, interiors and fashion blogs the most for ideas and looking at writing styles, as well as how they start their posts.
