December Blog Post Ideas

Wednesday, December 9, 2015


There's nothing worse as a blog owner than to have writers block. Ok, I take that back. If you typed in your blog URL and saw an error message of "page not found", that would certainly be worse than writers get the picture. You love to write. You know how to write, you just don't always know what  to write.

December is a crazy busy month for everyone, and blogging might not be on the forefront of your mind. Even though you're busy trimming the tree, shopping for holiday gifts (or hiding them from your kiddos), you know that good blog content is key, and the show must go on. Why not finish out the last month of the year on a strong note with awesome blog content your readers are accustomed to?

Even though we are on the 9th day of the month, I thought I would share some post topic ideas to carry your blog through the end of December, and get those creative juices flowing again.

Feel free to use these ideas, or put your own spin on them to make them your own!

  1. Collette! These are SOOOOOO great!!!! writers block is the worst, isn't it?

    1. It sure is sweets! I sometimes need a little creativity "boost"!

  2. I am not a blogger who plans much. I just write about what's happening around my little house.

    But, I saw some good posts recently about things people are crushing on. I don't spend a lot of time shopping online so it's fun when others show me what's out there at favorite shops like Anthropologie.

    1. I agree Carol....write about what you love:)
