As a blogger, you might run out of blog topic ideas from time to time. It happens. Sometimes your mind just goes blank. I’ve been blogging for over five years and it’s happened to me before. If you’re in that situation and you feel like you’re running out of blog ideas, you will enjoy today’s post. In this article, I’ll be going over 50 blog topic ideas. After reading this list, it will be a while before you run out of blog topics. Depending on your blog, you may not be able to use every idea, but I’m sure you will be able to use a few of them.
1. “How To” Posts
“How to” posts can be great for your blog. Whatever you’re an expert at, you can write about it. I’ve had several “how to” posts on my blog, including How to Get Started with Affiliate Marketing or How to Save for an Emergency Fund.
Are there people in your industry that you want to get to know? Are they making a difference? If so, you should interview them on your site. I have a side hustle series, where I interview people that are doing side hustles. Those posts keep me motivated. When it comes to the interviews, they can be short or long. You could even create videos. It’s all up to you.
3. Current Events
The third one on this blog topic idea list is to discuss current events. To be honest, it’s all types of foolishness going on in the world right now. From our crazy president to seeing how LeBron is going to do with the Lakers this season, there is never a dull moment.
4. Life Updates
Has anything big or important happened in your life lately? If so, share it on your blog. Some of the best posts on my site are the ones where I get personal.
5. Mother’s Day

9. Product Review
If you do affiliate marketing on your blog, you can do product reviews. People review all types of things such as banks, airlines, and appliances. Figure out which products are in your niche and go from there.
Number 10 on this list of blog topics is goals. You can share your monthly or yearly goals on your blog. By doing that your readers will hold you accountable. I share a couple of goals on my site at the beginning of each year.
