With the relaunch of All Things Beautiful I wanted to really focus on content. I wanted to be ahead of my self by about a month so I didn't have the last minute panic of what to write and so I could keep up posting consistently on alternate days. So before launch day I needed to come up with a good chunk of interesting and inspiring ideas. When I need to get a big bulk of content ideas together I tend to go with this method which always works. So grab a pen and some paper because you're going to be writing lists and getting some ideas down.
First, list 5 topics or subtopics your blog covers and write another list of the types/formats of posts you could use such as wish lists, top 5..., favourites of the week, beginner guides, rants or advice posts. Now you should write five post titles for the first five topics you wrote using each of the formats you wrote for the second step. For example-
- My Christmas Wish List
- Top 5 Hairstyles for Back to School
- Favourite Beauty Articles of the Week
- Beginners guide to false lashes
- Why I hate (something beauty related)
Now do the same for each of your categories and you will have at least 25 post titles ready to go, how easy was that? Of course it can be better to come up with posts whenever you feel inspired but this can be more productive for when you just need to get organised and some ideas right now!
If you have a blog, let me know in the comments if you found this useful and how many post ideas you were able to come up with. Do you think you have a better way of thinking up content you could share with us all?
