When we’re pressed for time but are still motivated to write a blog post; it can be a bit tricky to figure out what topic or content can fit into the creative moments we have available. Life can get bustling or frustrating for many reasons, hopefully these blog post ideas produce some inspiration!
Here are 15 quick blog post ideas for when you don’t have time to write …
Highlight Other Bloggers
If you don’t already implement this through monthly ad slots; share five blogs/bloggers that you feel people should know about/support. It’s a great way to show appreciation for the writing community.
Summarize Your Best Posts
Round up which of your blog posts were the most popular with your readers or that represent your personal favourites.
Join A Blogging Tag
Blog tags usually nominate writers to join in, but they are frequently extended to anyone who wants to take part. They provide a guide to what you’re writing about and are an invaluable opportunity to connect with fellow bloggers.
Facts About You
Answer some FAQ that your readers/followers have asked or share some interesting things about yourself that people may not know.
Share A Life Lately List
This list can encompass any aspect of your everyday life; books you’ve read, what you’ve been watching (TV/movies); exercise routines, favourite foods — anything you can think of!
Social Media Highlights
Get people interested in following your social media accounts by sharing a round up of your most recent photos, reels/TikToks, stories, vlogs and tweets, etc.
What I Wish I Knew Before …
Explore what you have learned from an experience (you could write about what you wish you knew before you started blogging, travelling, working or becoming a parent, etc.); offer some advice for those in a similar situation.
Use A Writing Prompt
Find a journaling or writing prompt that works for you and share your answer to it in a blog post; they can offer an excellent source of creativity.
List things that you rate highly; it can be books, what to watch on streaming services, computer games, food to sample, make-up brands — literally anything and everything!

Write about some activities that offer a positive distraction when needed; include the things you enjoy doing that help with relaxation.
Top 3 Self-Care Activities
Self-care has increasingly become a significant part of many people’s lives; share some of the key ways in which you nurture your mental, physical and emotional health.
Life Advice That Made An Impact
If you’ve been offered some advice about life that really resonated with you; delivering a beneficial and significant impact, write about what it was and the difference it has made.
No matter what the subject matter is, if you’re notably skilled at creating something, can simplify activities or expertly perform a task many people struggle with; provide a ‘how to’ that will make life easier for your readers.
Guess The Truth
For something a little fun; write four lies about yourself and one truth; invite your readers to leave a comment about which one they believe to be the truth. You can even have a vote on your social media (revealing the answer a few days later).
Create A Motto
Come up with a motto for what you’re focusing on achieving this year (or any other time frame). Explore the reasoning behind it and any goals you are working towards.
Writing content isn’t always easy, especially if time is limited; but if it’s essential something is published, these relatively quick and easy blog post ideas should provide some guidance. It’s necessary to note, however, that taking a break from blogging to focus on other things going on in life remains a valid and appropriate choice to make.
