Have you experienced moments when you seem clueless on what to write about?
I don’t know about you, but all too quickly, I suddenly realise that too much brain storming often leaves me with so many ideas whirling around my head, that I have no clue of what to write about. Even if I have a notebook filled with outlines or heaps of inspiring blog titles. And I know it is already the first week of October, but I have been browsing the web and haven’t found many Christian themed Blogtober post ideas. So I have come up with a short list with the aim that they would be useful to other Christian bloggers. Or even for use in your daily journal.
I simply love the season of autumn. There is so much inspiration for any writer to extract from the divergent changes in nature. And if you are part of Blogtober this year, it can bring focus and improvement, as you slip into a beneficial habit of writing every day.
4 Tips to help you plan your content
- Tailor your posts to your life and what is important to you. Use the season as an underlying incentive thread.
- If you do keyword searches, you will find top autumn trends that are doing well on social media. Use these as a base for ideas.
- Ask your readers what they would like to hear more about in this season and incorporate these thoughts into your posts.
- Planning, preparation and organising at least a month ahead helps you stay on track.
Time to get ready for shorter days and discover great things to do. As you stay indoors and wrap up. Cosy on the couch or by a window seat gazing at the rain outside. Here are my post ideas to write about, be exhilarated by and motivated in chasing after hope in every corner of your day this autumn.
