I don't know about you but I often find myself going through fazes of complete writers block where no matter how hard I try, I just cannot come up with any blog posts that leave me feeling inspired or write a post that sounds coherent. I'm pretty sure all bloggers have been through this from time to time so that's where Dana Fox's new book '365 Blog Topic Ideas For The Lifestyle Blogger Who Has Nothing to Write About'* book comes in very useful. Dana writes the blog Wonder Forest and I've been a big fan of it for years now - she has a beautiful layout, stunning photography and she posts about a variety of topics from beauty to DIY and blogging advice. With this being said, I was very excited to here she'd released a book and felt slightly proud (is that weird?) that such a great blogger was doing great things. I think its so important for bloggers to support each other and I wish her all the luck in the world.
Dana kindly sent me the book to have a look at so I thought I'd write up a quick post as I know it will be helpful to a lot of bloggers out there. The first thing I'll say about this book is that it has a very basic concept. The book has a different blog topic idea on each page and nothing else - no other writing is included. I like this format as its straight to the point - it gives you a title for a blog post and you can then go away and adapt a post from it or put your own spin on it.
I also love how the book has topic ideas that fall under the 'lifestyle' category as that means all genres of blogs can incorporate them in some way - wether you run a fashion, food or beauty blog, you'll be able to get inspiration from this book. So you can get an idea of the kind of ideas you'll find in the book, I've popped five of them below. Obviously this is only a very small glimpse into the book as there's another 360 ideas in there but you'll have to grab yourself the book to find out what they are ;).
- A typical day of your life in 10 photos
- How to do something on a budget
- Your favourite apps
- How do you stay productive
- Your newest obsession
There's not much more I can say other than this is a great book that I think all bloggers should own as its great for those moments when you're lacking in inspiration and need a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing! You can get it here from Amazon for only £8.45 and its worth every penny in my opinion.
