How to Write Fresh Blog Content

Today’s post is a break from style to focus on blogging. I wanted to share my blogging tips, especially writing tips, since I’m very passionate about writing. Let’s get started…

Your blog is your space to be creative and original. Nothing is worse than running out of ideas or posting something just because you felt you had to. Your blog should be something you’re proud of, and your content should reflect that. If you write about things you are passionate about, readers will come back.

Write timely posts.

It’s important to write content that is relevant and current. This way, you’ll always have inspiration and ideas for posts. Is there a holiday or blogiversary coming up? Is there a new trend you’re dying to try?

Write about YOU.

This relates to the one above. Your blog is unique because it’s written by you. It’s perfectly okay (and encouraged) to talk about yourself. Your readers want to get to know you.

Don’t blog just to blog.

If you feel pressure to produce content daily, you might find that you’re writing posts that you’re not passionate about. Write posts that you love, and your readers will love them too.

Start a new blog series.

I was in a bit of a blogging rut a few months ago, which was how the “Pink Profile” series came about. Not only did it provide new content, but I also got inspiration by reading about other bloggers.

Write when inspiration strikes.

I was lying in bed at 8 a.m. on a Saturday when ideas just started flowing for this post. If you can’t get to your computer right away, carry a notebook or jot down ideas in your phone. I also do this when I’m writing academic papers.

    This is such a good post! I think it can be very intimidating to start blogging, especially when it comes to writing your own content. Happy New Year! 🙂

    Great advice!!! Especially writing when inspiration strikes. I find it crucial to get ahead, because my worst posts are the ones that I am writing late the night before I want to post.
