blog post ideas for lifestyle blogs

It can be frustrating when you want to write a blog post, but have run out of ideas, which is what happened to me at the start of this year. I thought about the posts I was writing and they all seem to be very similar, which is great for continuity, but can get a little boring to read and even write. When I did come up with ideas, I used to just write down notes on my phone or on loose pieces of paper which would just end up lost or forgotten, so being the new super organised person, I started writing my ideas down in a book; or as I like to call it 'A Long List Of Blogging Topics & Ideas.' Here are 30 post ideas, taken from my book, to help you lifestyle bloggers.
