Last month, I shared a post discussing tips for being creative while staying -for some reason- at home. Most of us who wish to post often, also face quit often the so famous called “writer`s block”. At least I know I have!
I created the following simple list for days like these, when I want to write but I have no idea what to tell about or I cannot concentrate on discovering a topic I enjoy. I use a lot the following list and apart from helping me to come up with new post ideas, I started creating a blog post archive. Some of the initial ideas have now turned into categories within “breathsndreams” which get constantly expanded.
Here are 5 easy ways to create a blog post.
- Microblogging. It is actually what you read, small posts or notes no more than 200 words, usually accompanied by a strong photo. It is one of my favorites to create and I mainly microblogged in the first year of my blogging journey via the Weekly Photo Challenge. I still do it on a weekly basis via my Mini Notes series and the Treasured This Week series, or even quickly discussing about Coffee Love.
- Lists. These are really quick and easy to create and the topics to get inspired are endless. You can write all kind of tips, or “how to” posts and even the kind of “x personal monthly goals”. I absolutely enjoy making them and a few of my favorites are: 8 top tips on choosing your wedding flowers, 20 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas and of course this one.
- Photo Centered Posts. These kind of posts are similar to microblogging, but instead of one main shot, you can post a number of photographs and describe your experience with lesser words. You could post all about you latest weekend adventures, your walk on your favorite park, a live music experience or a day in your local flea market. I like posting photo projects and a few of my favorites are, some black & white shots and stills/ interiors.
- Stories from personal experience. Write all about your latest hidden city gem discovery, or a fantastic book shop exploration from your earlier trip, or a tasty recipe that you recently found out. I usually write such posts about my Athens adventures while introducing little cafes, events or places or my favorite cooking attempts.
- Quotes. Share your favorite words or a list of them and explain why you got inspired. I love quotes and enjoy reading them a lot, so I created a sub category of “Lovely Words” within the blog to share exclusively favorite quotes.

P.S. Did you notice the “google translation option” at the widgets area on the right? I got really excited this week by that!!
As always, thank you – thank you so much for reading!! 🙂
