Brainstorming For Lifestyle Blog Ideas

August 19, 2012 in Guest Posts

Start Your Own Lifestyle Blog

Lately, it’s been one of those times where I can think of any good lifestyle blog ideas.  It seems like each idea I come up with is uninteresting, beat to death, or irrelevant to one of my blogs.  This is one of those times when I’ll use my Top Ten Blog Ideas List to kick start a new blog idea, but I’ll tell you that even that doesn’t work sometimes.  I’m sure most of you know exactly what I’m talking about and probably think you’re a bad blogger for not being able to overcome that obstacle.  Well, there’s nothing wrong with you and I’m right there with you in that thought process.

A New Lifestyle Blog

lifestyle blogWhen this happens to me, I’ll often do something drastic.  I’ll take a break from blogging for a little while which could be a couple days, a week, or maybe even longer.  I tend to feel burnt out and need some time away to not worry about how many viewers are visiting my blogs each day or stressing about making sure the next article is just right.  In fact, that’s what I’ve done over the last week or two.  I definitely don’t consider it the end of the world either.  Lifestyle blogs are made to be built up over time and it is far too easy to get caught up in the notion that you need to blog every day or you’ll become irrelevant.  But, that’s just not true. I’ve Googled more search terms than I can count and it is amazing how many high ranking results are for sites that are clearly inactive with old outdated content from years ago.  This means that you can let your fingernails recover as taking a hiatus from your blog isn’t going to kill you.

However, just because you’re not blogging, doesn’t mean that you’re not generating new blog ideas. It’s amazing how many tasks, events, and occurrences take place throughout our daily lives. Each one of these can lead to a new lifestyle blog idea. In it’s own way, just living your life is a giant brainstorming session for coming up with new lifestyle blog ideas to expand on.  I own and currently maintain seven different blogs. Each one is about something completely different and really allows me to entertain a variety of ideas that randomly pass through my mind.  By backing away from blogging for a little while, it let’s you look at things from an outside perspective and realize that you can’t rush good ideas.  Sometimes they take a little while to come to you.  Check out our free blog tools!

So, next time you’re worrying about what to write about and it seems like everything you think of has been published online hundreds of times before, don’t be afraid to take a break.  Don’t write anything for awhile. Maybe don’t even look at your lifestyle blog at all.  It can be the exact remedy to get your mind back on track and ready to formulate whenever you feel like coming back to it.  You’ll be inadvertently brainstorming for new lifestyle blog ideas and have an entire arsenal to keep you busy writing for quite some time.  Thanks for checking out Blog Ideas!

IM live the dream in Thailand

IM Always Happy 2 Help!

This is the first of many posts and pages that will be full of helpful advice and resources for those new to Internet Marketing (IM) and looking to earn extra money working from home or living the dream and working from the beach.

I started Internet and affiliate marketing a few years ago and after around two years I turned the corner and started making a living from online marketing. I want to share what I’ve learned with others so you don’t make the same mistakes as me or waste any of your time, so you can fast track to make $100’s online everyday and live your dream, maybe in Thailand, just like me.

IM = Internet Marketing

I’m not a Guru or an Internet millionaire, I’m just a regular guy who likes the freedom and lifestyle working online with IM gives me. The freedom and flexibility to work from where I want, when I want and with who I want. You can do it too.

I left the grey skies and the rat race that is London and after living on Koh Chang island for a few months, I set up home in Bangkok (BKK) Thailand in April 2011. In this blog I will share some of my experiences with you about living in the strange and beautiful place they call ‘The Land of Smiles’.

Check back regularly and feel free to post your comments and advice to help others. Caring is sharing so get some of that good karma!
