50 blog post ideas for creative blogs

50 blog post ideas for creative blogs - cardboardcities » creative lifestyle blog

it happens to all of us. sometimes you run out of blog post ideas, or you’re running a little low.

i’ve not really seen any blogs with ideas for creative blog posts (those that specifically blog about their creative endeavours, career or work) so i thought i’d put something together with some ideas for all my fellow creative bloggers!

hopefully this post will inspire you to get writing, or even spawns some new ideas!

– pros and cons of university, and/or your experience with it
– ideas and actionable tips to boost productivity
– studio tour (this could be your actual studio space, bedroom, kitchen table or wherever you work)
– favourite books, blogs and resources
– what does creativity mean to you?

– being creative in day to day life
– books, films and tv shows that inspire you
– other artists, illustrators and makers that inspire you
– favourite art shops, both local and national
– make collages with one magazine, or just a few pages and write about it

– interview other creatives or people in your specific niche
– interview yourself
– pinterest accounts you enjoy
– instagram accounts you enjoy
– collaborate on a piece with another creative and blog about it

– show us your sketchbook/rough drawings/WIP’s
– why did you start blogging?
– book reviews relating to your niche or interests
– about you – why do you do what you do?
– a day in the life

– places you go to reinspire or motivate yourself
– art supply wishlist
– stationery haul
– DIY posts
– instagram roundup

– what art/craft/creative supplies you use
– goals and dreams for your career or future in general
– write a letter to your younger self
– resources for creatives and creative bloggers
– work in progress from beginning to end

– things you’ve learned doing whatever creative thing it is you do
– how you edit your photos
– favourite apps and programs
– how do you de-stress
– does where you live affect your creative style?

-if you had the opportunity to write, illustrate or make your own book, what kind would it be? what would it be about? why?
– item(s) you collect
– how you’d spend your perfect day
– how you stay organised – this could be personally, blog-wise or both
– what creative tools/items could you not live without?

– do something you’ve never done before. write about/draw/paint/video/photograph it then blog about it
– are you a genuine expert or have some real gems of advice you could give about your chosen career/life path?
– talk about insecurities or thoughts you have about your creative life, and the lives of others
– create a playlist of songs that really inspire you and share it
– share your creative routine (if you have one!)

– ask for advice on how to improve your work (whatever it is that you do)
– why do you do what you do? did it come naturally? do you your strengths and weaknesses as a person affect your work?
– what are your other hobbies outside of your ‘main’ creative outlet?
– do you have any advice for any new bloggers in your niche?
– blog about work you’re proud of, how you’ve overcome problems to create your best work, and how you plan to keep creating your best work

ps. if you want to know where the items in the photo are from: platonic solids clipboard / polka dot diary / kaweco sport fountain pen / fuji x10 camera / 16gb memory card

    Such a great list. I have a bit of block at the moment when it comes to thinking of posts for my blog, I end up struggling to fit in all my reviews and paid posts that the more natural ones get forgotten. They are so important though so I must make more effort x
