Sometimes even the best bloggers get writers block, so if you get the same thing don't be too hard on yourself. In this post I cover 51 blog post ideas that you can use across any niche.... 

As well as blog post ideas I will also be covering the different blog formats you can use as well as the various ways you can present your content. I must admit I am as guilty as anyone to get brain freeze when looking to write my next blog post. So gathering up loads of ideas and placing them together means both myself and yourself can use this post to refer back to anytime we want to.... 

Blog Post Formats

Okay let's cover some of the different types of blog formats that you can use on your blog posts.

Pillar Post - This is a very detailed post probably around 2,000 words about one subject. Here's an example How to build a blog and make money in 2018

A Series - This would be a group of posts that are all related to one subject 

Update - This post would be bringing your readers up to speed on changes from a previous post

Round Up - These posts would be weekly, monthly or even yearly and cover a similar theme

Standard - This is of medium length and is a general post

What Medium To Use In Your Post

There are various mediums you can use within your post too. There is the most common text post. Equally popular these days is video, especially with sites such as Youtube making it super easy to host your videos and mobile phones having the ability to produce videos in seconds. Podcasts (audio) are becoming more popular too. Less popular but as effective can be slideshows and image only posts. You can of course mix several mediums in the one post, this can work well as it breaks up your readers thought pattern.

If you are loving these ideas please share via Twitter and Pinterest so others can benefit too...
