30 Ideas for Your Next Blog Post

Did you make a resolution to blog more frequently in 2018? Good for you! But if you are like me, sometimes you have no idea what to write about.

I get some of my best ideas when I’m away from my desk. If I don’t write them down, they fly away. I carry a little assignment pad in my purse so I can capture ideas on the go, and occasionally I’ll take a walk with my notebook and pen, because physically moving frees up my imagination.

    • That’s a terrific idea. I had a friend who was a round dancer, and she designed all her own dance dresses. She got her best ideas while dreaming. When she dreamed herself dancing in a beautiful dress, she woke herself up and sketched it right then and there.
