Hello everyone, hope your all well, sadly the same cannot be said for everybody in our household as my dad has been really poorly since he returned back to the flat late Saturday night. We think it could be the nasty bug that’s been making its way around a lot of people, as it’s not Covid (he’s been tested and the result came back negative) but he hasn’t left his bed since he finished work. My mum and I are not feeling particularly well ourselves, we think we might be coming down with the flu as we’re both experiencing multiple symptoms that comes with having the virus, for me personally, I keep suffering with a runny nose, body aches, fatigue and brain fog (just to name a few) amongst some other things, the last one making it very hard to think properly, so it has been very hard to work on my blog this week, usually I have my posts pre-planned and laid out so I know what I’m doing but due to being unwell, that hasn’t been the case for this week.
Enough of my rambling lets move on. As I mentioned above about brain fog and struggling to think properly, it leads me nicely into today’s blog post – Blog post ideas for beginners….now disregarding the title a little bit as this weeks topic doesn’t actually have to be just limited to beginners, some of the things on this list also works for anyone who is suffering or has suffered from writers block like I have suffered from throughout my blogging experience on multiple occasions!
Whether you’re just starting out on your blogging journey or you’ve been at it for a while and are looking for some inspiration, this post is for you. I’m not going to give you a long list of blog post ideas because that would depend on your niche, whether lifestyle, mom blog, finance, or otherwise. While there are potentially hundreds of ideas you can try out, picking one closest to your interests will be much easier to get into.
Tell your readers who you are and give a brief background on yourself. Explain what the blog will be focused on and where you want the blog to go. This is because you would want your readers to know exactly what your blog is about and the kind of content they should expect to be getting from you on a daily or weekly basis. The way you introduce your blog would be greatly determined by its name. If your blog is named according to a specific niche (e.g. the food experts blog), your introduction should state what kind of content readers should expect regarding food. The advantage of starting your blog with an introduction is that the reader will be absolutely sure of what your blog is about. It will also give them fair knowledge of what to expect if they keep visiting your blog.

Product reviews are very important, especially if you’re writing on a product-focused blog. Product reviews are a great way to get traffic to your website as well. People interested in what you have to say about products will be browsing your blog for reviews, which means that they’ll end up seeing and reading about other things on your blog. Be sure to write a detailed review that is easy on the eyes. This will make it much easier for your readers to understand the product and get a good idea of why they should purchase it. Try to include images of the products you’re reviewing near the end of your article (just be careful when not to use copyrighted images).

Top blogs in your niche
Pick a few obvious influencers in your niche but throw in some lesser-known bloggers that you think are great. They might return the favor on their blogs. You can write a profile post about an industry leader, your customers, or someone who’s up and coming in your industry. Consider writing a post on “Who’s who” in your industry. You can link to their Twitter handles, their websites, etc. Be sure to message those industry leaders as they very well may share your post too.
Case studies are similar to how-to`s in that they provide detailed instruction on a subject. However, instead of giving simple steps, case studies include real examples of problems and solutions. By providing concrete details, case studies allow readers to see what they would need to do to apply the solution to their own situations. You could find a brand or fellow blogger that’s doing really well in the niche that you’re in and do a best-case study on them and talk about what they’re doing right, why people like them, and what your readers can learn from their example. Sharing a detailed analysis of a specific example or case can be a powerful way to illustrate a point or concept. Consider writing a case study to demonstrate the application of a particular idea or principle in a real-world setting.

For instance, you could do:
- 9 books you should read before you die.
- 21 books of places everyone should visit in their lifetime
- 15 Best Photography books
