Blog Ideas for the Year!


In January, a lot of new blogs pop up, which is awesome! But some fizzle out just a few months in, which makes me sad, especially when the content was decent to read.

I always look up ideas for blogging and wanted to share some of my favorites, that way if you are stuck and you don’t know what you want to write about, you can pull a few from this list.  This list is an accumulation of lots of lists.  I pulled from Pinterest and others blogs.

  1. Wow, you mapped out a whole year!
    I see a lot of blogs start at the beginning of the year, then just fizzle, like you say.
