I have my little calendar of what I plan on blogging about—I add in dates for giveaway hops, and reviews to post, plus holiday posts. I have another notebook for blogging ideas related to different categories. I like to flip through a lot of different e-magazines related to interior design for things to blog about. When I’m looking for other ideas, I look at these sites for some inspiration:
- Houzz – an amazing site where interior designers and architects post pictures of their designs/client’s homes.
- Gawker – especially DwellingGawker is a great source for inspiration. There are pictures from blog posts in different categories. There’s also FoodGawker, WeddingGawker, and CraftGawker for other ideas.
- Etsy – this continues to be a site of great inspiration. Whatever is trending right now seasonally, shows up on Etsy. The treasury pages — where members put together product pictures on an inspiration board of sorts—is especially great for blogging ideas.
- Pinterest – I’ve been using it for a long time now to find gorgeous photos and inspiration. What I like best is finding new blogs and sites to check out.
- HGTV – watching the videos and looking at the blog posts there, I get so many ideas on what to blog about (but so little time).
I would love to know—what sites inspire you to get blogging? If you write a blog, please leave me a comment. I’d love to visit it and get to know you better!
