Original content can be hard to think of, especially after a time when it seems like there aren’t enough days to post the plethora of seasonal content available during the holidays. For that reason, we’ve compiled some easy to execute ideas for new content in 2013. Hopefully one or two of these can inspire some fabulous posts for your blog. Be sure to comment below if you have more ideas that other bloggers could be inspired by!

 

  • Resolution Diary

Now that you’ve declared your resolutions for the year, why not make it a point to hold yourself accountable? Set up a regular series for your blog in which you will check in on your resolutions and blog about your progress & setbacks. This is a great way to keep your goals top of mind and it also creates both relatable and interesting for others to read.

 

  • Start a Series Based On a Topic

Stemming of the above resolution diary idea, you could kick off the new year with a blog series. The series could be on anything that you choose – fashion icons, new trends, blogger highlights or Men’s wear (so underdone in the fashion blogging world!). Series posts are great because they help you to plan ahead while varying content type from your typical posts.

 

  • Make Your Own Trends

Have an idea for a trend that you think is fiercely fashionable? Do outfit posts that frequently highlight that trend worn in different ways. You never know – it may just catch on and become the next big thing!

 

  • Style Your Friends

Outfit posts are fun and they’re great for establishing a connection with readers, but it’s nice to vary up your images once in a while. One way to do this is to feature your friends as models. This makes for some cool image opportunities – and will most likely put a smile on your friend’s faces also.

 

  • Make a List Series

Top 10 Trends of winter. 7 Ways to Style a Hair Bow. 3 Looks for Ice Skating. Lists are easy to digest and are a great way to add a twist to your writing. When paired with imagery and sharable content they create posts that are as unique as they are creative.

    Such a great post, particularly the point about ‘Start a Series Based On a Topic’ (so obvious, but I never got round to doing it!)

    Also just wanted to say I’ve recently started blogging (after many failed attempts) and reading heartIFB has helped an INCREDIBLE amount – if you look through my browser history you’ll find that I scoured 18 pages worth of blogging tips (and maybe a few cat videos in between). So stoked to blog now!

    Thanks a bunch,

    I started a series called Thirsty Thursday, every Thursday I make a post based on a trend, a holiday, a particular print or color. And I display pieces or outfits to get people to be creative and to encourage shopping. And I always put all my affiliated links in there. And also after I’ve worn an item 4+ times I make a # of ways to wear “something” post, and try to engage people by asking them to vote for their favorite outfit.

    I used to have Trendy Tuesdays where I post a new trend every Tuesday. Life got hectic and TT posts have stopped, but I renamed the series so that it gives me more flexibility. : )

    I follow IFB on Twitter and the tweets on curating editorial content for this year had me starting a Wishing Wednesday series whereby it could be a “want” at the moment or a way to incorporate recent news/events that I wish was XYZ.

  17. Belinda says:

    Some great tips! I’ve been thinking of some new series posts for my blog like a street style maybe? But I’d be too nervous to ask people for a photo! I currently do ‘fashion lusts’ and ‘beauty lusts’ posts and show items which I’ve spotted online or recently purchased and write about them which I really enjoy :)

  18. Great ideas for new bloggers. Keep sharing the new ideas..

    I love the idea of series, for example I love when bloggers do regularly posts like “10 questions” (they ask some fashion-related questions of some fellow bloggers – great way for connecting people!) I think I might start my own series soon :)

  26. I found far-reaching the idea to highlight usual things as trends, looks e.t in a new manner. We all have more or less the same ingridients, the question is how you cook and serve them.

  57. peter max says:

    I am totally agree with you while writing a blog post you should think about the users, users interest and users likes n dislikes. It has to be small and informative and most important thing is social plugins on your post so your post can go viral easily. There are few things Ive in mind so I shared with you hope you like it.

    Really useful to make a list series, cause it’s easy and entertaining to read, I’m definitively going to use that on my blog!

    These are such great ideas! A blogging friend and I are actually hosting a Resolutions Diary type series in 2014. We plan to list our blogging resolutions/goals in January and then do an update post on them every month. We want to get as many bloggers involved as possible because the best way to keep up with ANY goal is support! Check out the post if you’d like to be involved!

    I definitely like the idea of writing a style series. With either the season, a pop icon, a popular movie, or whatever they’re actually pretty easy to come up with. My only issue is that I can’t always teach something in a series post, which is my whole reason for blogging. With it now being summer, I think I’ll take another shot at it!

  74. Great ideas. I have found. That diary like series where I’m sharing information in a series work very well for me. I just recently did a 20questions post from my readers questions and broke them up into two posts 10/10 on two of my blogs. So one set of 10 posted on http://www.jaxcouture.com and the other 10 directed my subscribers to my personal page http://www.JacquelineJax.com so both set of subscribers got to engage with the other blog pages and the links were valid for google. I noticed a lower bounce rate and more engagement on this style post. I would definitely do it again.

    Great ideas! Just starting to build my blog so may use some of these ideas.
