When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer from the Charlotte , North Carolina newspaper, noticed her in the distance looking at the fireman. He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered

Four hours later, around 2:00 am, Grace snuck back into her own house. She was covered in a thin layer of her sweat and Todd�s. She had showered at Todd�s after their marathon session. Todd had run out of condoms, but they couldn�t keep their hands off each other and had to get one more for the road. She could feel some of his cum still dribbling from her juicy milf pussy.She wasn�t sure what she would say to her husband. She hoped she could sleep on it, but he was still up, waiting for her. �Keith, I�m sorry,� she started, unsure of what he knew and what was obvious. He stared at her, red faced and breathing heavy. �Were you worried about me�.��Fuck no,� he growled. �I�ve jerked off half a dozen times,� he told her. His cock was growing hard again. He grabbed her tightly and slipped his hands between her legs. He could feel her warm, wet, naked pussy and the unmistakable feel of another man�s cum. �You�ve been a naughty girl,� he growled, grabbing by the hand and dragging her into the bedroom.
Very cool, yet very creepy! Found in Bjørke, Møre og Romsdal, Norway. The closest I could find to a copyright holder is Hicksworth on Reddit. A commenter on that thread had been to the house as it was just 5 minutes from his/her grandparents. The front steps lead to a set of windows. The entrance is in the back of the house. How weird is that? I can’t tell if that’s a rotten black hole next to the steps or if it’s just burn marks from a fire.

Megan walked towards him, still flashing her small, perky tits at her brother-in-law. �Well? What are you gonna do about it?� she said aggressively. She didn�t know what she was expecting him to do, but lunging at her and kissing her wasn�t on the top of her list.She started to push back, but could feel the bulge in his pants. The tension that had mounted over the past few weeks, and the realization that he didn�t hate her, but wanted instead to fuck her, pushed her over the edge.She tore at his shirt and pulled his pants down. He was a lot bigger and thicker than her husband. She eagerly took him into her sweet, young mouth. She had barely starting sucking his magnificent cock before he couldn�t take it any longer. He grabbed her roughly and threw her on the bed. She landed with a nervous giggle and Rick pulled off her pants, flinging them across the room.She whined and whimpered as his hot, thick massive cock pushed deep inside of her black pussy. Ohhh, ohhh god, Rick!Rick had to focus to stop himself from cumming after the first few strokes. Her pussy was so tight and those perky little tits shuddered as he filled her with his cock. He took a deep breath and drew his cock out of her. They both moaned as he sunk it in her again, and again.They have sex for nearly an hour before they had to stop. Breathlessly, Megan suggested they take a shower to clean up. The shower lasted thirty minutes longer than necessary as Megan let her brother-in-law take from behind.Their lust carried them through until dinner time. Megan slipped out of the guestroom just as her husband was pulling into the driveway. She quickly changed and ordered takeout for dinner.Before bed, Sam apologized for the arrangement. �I know you and Rick don�t get along,� he started. I�ll make it up to you�No. It�s fine, Megan interrupted. In fact, he can stay as long as he likes.

She never broke eye contact with Sébastien, not for a single second. As he rose from his chair, she ever so slightly shivered; her heart began to thump soundly in her chest and as he drew closer and closer to her, the anticipation within her heightened, her desire to feel him against her skin had now become so unbearable; she just couldn't stave the intense feelings she had for him any longer.........
The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.”
From Kate: The above photo was taken by a friend of mine who was taking photos of damage caused when a room in her house had caught fire, for insurance purposes. The area she was taking a photo of was the inside of the closet in this fire damaged room. It was taken with a digital camera and has not been inverted to a "negative" as it would appear, nor has it been enhanced in any way. The image taken by the camera is just as you see it in the

Dave was awoken by the soft grunting noise. He looked over and saw his wife, Sarah. She was wearing that frilly skirt that showed off her lovely legs and a low cut white blouse. She was thrusting herself back and forth against a naked stranger, moaning softly as they fucked.Slowly, the night before came into focus. Dave remembered going out to dinner with his wife. They had met a man, Ryan, or Brian? He was the man who was fucking Sarah as the morning light spilled in to their master bedroom. The last thing Dave remembered was Ryan handing him a drink at the bar.Sarah�s thrusting became more and more forceful and her grunts and moans grew less and less subtle. �Hunnng. Gnnn. Hunnng!� she moaned, desperate for more of the stranger�s big cock.She glanced over at her husband. her focus was held onto his cock, poking away at the bed sheets. She found his eyes and smiled at him, all the while, longingly slamming her creamy pussy back against the stranger.�Ohh!. Ohh fuck! Yes, Brian! Fuck me!� she begged. The stark contrast of watching his shy, unassuming wife turned into a sex-hungry slut made Dave ache. He began stroking his cock as his wife braced herself against the table, which looked to have already taken the brunt of a forceful fucking the night before. Her slut-filled begging turned to incoherent moans as she came and slumped forward. The ecstasy of her orgasm had extinguished her consciousness.Brian took over. He hoisted her from the hips and had his way with her slight, petite body. He pushed and pulled her young little pussy onto his cock, using her like a sex toy.With a loud, deep grunt, Brian held the pretty little Sarah against him. He emptied himself into her. Sarah moaned suddenly as the warm rush of his cum filled her. �Oooh!� she purred at the suddenly familiar, warm sensation.Brian roughly pushed her aside and Sarah slumped against the wall, moaning as the stranger�s cum dripped from her pussy. �I�ll be in the shower,� Brian announced.Dave was still trying to work things out when he felt his wife slip onto the bed and silently wrap her lips around his aching, purple cock. She seemed to coax his hands onto her frazzled head, begging her husband to fuck her mouth as Brian had just fucked her pussy.Dave came quickly, flooding her mouth a Brian had her cunt. Her husband�s cum dribbled down her chin as the stranger�s still oozed down her thigh.�Sorry, honey,� she muttered, kissing him on the cheek. �I�ve got to get to work, so a blowjob will have to hold you over.� She rose from the bed and began fixing her outfit. �Last night was amazing,� she said wiping Brian�s cum from her inner thigh. �I�m sorry you missed all the fun. Once we got back here, you were out like a light.�
Guy P: "Well Joseph is back he had a great time.

Darryl Hannah “I was 11 and on a road trip with my family. I saw a truck with some baby calves on it and for about an hour I petted and kissed this one calf and he was kissing me. This man came up and I said, ‘Excuse me Sir, what’s this calf’s name?’ and he just said, ‘Veal, tomorrow morning at seven.’ ” “That was it. I could no longer disassociate the meal on the plate from the creature it had been.”

He was hot, still sweating from cutting the grass. “Did you buy only the red heels as we agreed?” Her gaze flitted to the closet and he knew she was wondering if he already knew the answer. She shifted on the bed, beautiful in a black negligee he’d bought for her. “Kayla?” “I bought the red heels.” “Just the red pair then

Whitney was surprised when, only a year after their wedding, Tom floated the idea of swinging. Tom was quite a bit older and had been married before. Whitney told him honestly that it didn�t appeal to her. �I just think it�s a little weird, having sex in front of other people,� she told him. �I don�t think I could get there,� she said, brushing a stray blonde hair behind her thick rimmed glasses.'What about swapping? Or just, you know open? An open marriage,' Tom offered Whitney didn�t know as much as her husband about these things. Other than Tom, she hadn�t had a really long-term relationship since high school. Her parents were divorced when she was younger, so she didn�t really know what to expect. When Tom suggested it, she just assumed it was something everyone did.Tom explained that they should have ground rules and they worked them out. He was excited to take a run at one of the secretaries at his office. Whitney, didn�t really have her mind on anybody, but she was interested to be open to the men who had always flirted with her. The very next day, she was at dinner with Tom at a new, fancy restaurant. The waiter was eyeing her. At first, she was offended, but then she remembered her arrangement with Tom, and subtly flirted back. Tom didn�t seem to mind.On the way to the downstairs bathroom, Whitney ran into her waiter. Literally. She rounded the corner and suddenly, her soft, warm body was pressed against his firm, taut muscles. Her soft brunette hair mixed with his and their eyes met.He backed off, but she pulled him in. She partly undid the zipper on her dress, then put his strong, firm hands on the zipper and give her his big cock to suck and swallow .'What about your husband?' he asked.'Don�t worry about him,' she said softly. He led her into the back room, where she had her first experience with an open marriage.Half an hour later, she returned to her table. �You were gone a while,� he said.She nodded, her hair was slightly disheveled. Tom was wondering what had happened when the waiter approached with a spare napkin. �Um, you left this downstairs,� the waiter said with an awkward smile. Tom realized what happened when Whitney tried to discretely separate the napkin from her panties.
The haunting of the Screaming Tunnel one of Niagara Falls’ most enduring legends. Located off Warner Road, it runs under the railway tracks that link Niagara Falls to Toronto & New York City. According to legend, over a century ago, a farm house located just past the south entrance caught fire one night. A young girl, her clothes engulfed in flames, fled screaming from the house. She ran through the tunnel in an attempt to extinguish her garments but collapsed and died on the tunnel floor.

Beverly was used to having house guests, but it was a rare treat to have a young, able-bodied man about the house. Her husband�s family lived on the other side of the country, but his nephew, Adam, was in college not far away. Adam was in town for the summer, having won an internships locally. Beverly and Jim had offered to put him up for the summer so he didn�t need to rent an apartment.Adam was handy to have around, as Beverley�s husband, Jim was useless with tools or anything that didn�t involve foreign exchange hedges. Jim left for work around 7 am every day, and usually didn�t return home until after 8:00. Beverly didn�t mind, even on those nights when he came home, more relaxed than normal, smelling like cheap massage oil.Adam, however, was around a lot more often. At first, he would go on recruiting junkets or work late once or twice, but for the most part, he was home for dinner and spent time with Beverly. Beverley was a few years younger than her husband, and only a little older than Adam. He didn�t know her growing up, and thought of her more as an older woman than his aunt. It didn�t take long for him to start fantasizing about her.It was the Monday after his internship had ended. He was still in town for a few more weeks, having decided to go straight back to college, instead of heading home and back again. Adam was relaxing at home when he saw Beverly heading out shopping. She was wearing tight black skirt, high heels, and a low cut blouse. Adam involuntarily tugged on his cock and moaned longingly as she slipped into her Benz. He watched her pull out of the driveway, and, deciding he needed a little release, he got back into bed.Beverly had forgotten her phone. She had also forgotten Adam�s internship was finished and didn�t expect him to be home. She heard a noise coming from the guestroom and knocked, but got no answer.She opened the door and saw Adam, naked, listening to porn on his headphones and stroking an enormous cock. Beverly stood there shocked and incredibly aroused. Wherever he got that huge cock, it wasn�t from her husband�s side of the family.As she wondered what to do, she couldn�t help but notice the porn he was watching. It was exclusively busty blonde milfs, all of whom looked remarkably like Beverly.Suddenly, Beverly felt flush and flustered. One hand covered her mouth while the other reached for her own chest in shock. At first. As she found her hand so close to her breasts, she became more aroused, fixating on his massive cock. She was locked in a stare when Adam turned around and saw her.They were both shocked, and stood there unsure what to do. Beverly stepped into the room and shut the door. She thought she was trying to be considerate�making sure no one else would see him or them in the room. The house, however, was empty for the day, and Adam understandably took that as an advance.He stood up and approached her. She shook her head, unsure of how to stop. Once his long, hard cock slapped heavily against her hand, she couldn�t stop. She reached out for it, stroking it as her lips reached towards his. As they kissed, Adam�s hand swept around her waist and unzipped her skirt. It fell to the floor, quickly followed by her blouse.She pushed Adam back towards the bed and hungrily attacked his cock with her mouth. Adam had already been close to cumming, and erupted quickly into her sweet, experienced mouth. She chuckled as he came, recalling the volumes of cum her boyfriends had delivered in her college days.

Ginger�s 23rd birthday coming up, and she was the only girl in her circle of friends who hadn�t gotten knocked up yet. She had been really careful to have safe sex so that she could do well in college. But now, all of her friends were pressuring Ginger to start having unsafe sex, like they had before and now always did. She had frowned, and remained silent for a while about it, not being convinced. But then one of Ginger�s friends, Kelly, said that she planned to throw another �cum party�, which they had thrown several times before without Ginger. To Kelly�s surprise, Ginger said she would go. The girls were all thrilled and Kelly said they would schedule it for Ginger�s birthday.When everyone arrived at the apartment, they all drank wine and got completely unclothed almost immediately. Ginger didn�t seem nervous, but she told Kelly that the guys could fuck her but not cum inside her. Kelly gave her a weird look, as if to say, �Well, why did you want to come to the party then?� but then she just smiled and said �Sure, love, I�ll tell the guys.� Then she just shrugged and walked away from Ginger. Nobody paid any attention to who they were fucking or where they were cumming at a cum party. That was the point.Ginger was blonde, pretty, and petite. She was tanned and fun to be around. All the girls were a bit jealous of her because she hadn�t been knocked up yet, and she was getting a lot of attention already from the guys at the party because she was easily the hottest girl in the room compared to the other girls who had �accidentally� lost the game of risky sex. There was no way Kelly was going to tell any guy at the party to bend the rules for Ginger. She needed to play the unprotected game the most of anyone.Two horny guys lifted Ginger up and started DP�ing her while she was suspended in midair. They were both pumping at her holes with blissful exuberance. You couldn�t wipe the smiles off their faces. Ginger was enjoying it too, not just because of the sex, but because she knew that her good friend Kelly had told the guys to be safe, so they weren�t going to cum inside her. The guys continued to pound away at the clueless girl as their orgasms started to build. She just smiled and enjoyed herself, feeling the pleasure.The guy fucking her ass came first, and she looked back at him and giggled. �Well, I guess that�s okay�, she thought to herself. After all, it was just her asshole. Him cumming inside was really hot, and she could feel her own climax building. Then she felt the guy fucking her cunt stiffen his muscles up and get even harder inside her. �Wait a minute� Is he�?� She suddenly knew that he was going to blow inside of her. She completely lost her smile and became pale as a sheet. Fear shot through her, and she froze, not knowing what to do.She didn�t have to suffer long, though, because he went over the edge fairly quickly, pumping squirt after squirt of semen into her body. She was terrorized, but couldn�t say or do anything other than feel her own body go through a massive orgasm of its own, brought on by fear and shock. The guys were now spent, and placed Ginger down on a bed on her back. Another fella came up between her legs, parted them, and started fucking her in earnest until he got his rocks off, too, and unloaded all of his ropes of sperm inside her. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw one of her friends high-five Kelly. Ginger was still frozen, but she was starting to enjoy this constant pummeling. Yet another guy came to fuck Ginger missionary style, and Ginger was really into it now, and came before he came inside her. It just took that first shock and the adjustment to fucking unprotected before she, like any other girl, got used to it and, in fact, craved the feeling of risky sex.When the party was over, the guys left, and Kelly came over to Ginger on the bed. She rubbed Ginger�s tummy below the bellybutton and leaned over to her ear. With a grin, Kelly whispered, �Now you�re fucked.� Ginger just closed her eyes and smiled. �Why didn�t you guys tell me that cum parties were this much fun?� she

Lauren was always a trouble maker. In college, she was never interested in a boy unless one of her friends was into him, or even better, already dating him. She loved turning her friends� boyfriends into cheaters. The chase was always more thrilling for Lauren when she knew her prey was going to be torn between her and his girlfriend.Understandably, Lauren quickly developed a reputation, and lost a lot of friends. One of the few friendships that survived through college was Ashley. Ashley was pretty, quiet and smart. Ashley didn�t have a lot of boyfriends, so Lauren had few targets to go after. Even when Lauren would go after a guy, Ashley would simply take it in stride.Nonetheless, it was surprising when, several years after graduating, Ashley welcomed Lauren into her home. Lauren and Ashley had reconnected through facebook, and Lauren happened to be traveling nearby. Ashley invited her to stay.Lauren was surprised to meet Ashley�s husband, Mike. He was handsome, athletic, muscular, and funny. It didn�t take long before Lauren slipped into her old ways and began fantasizing about stealing away her old friend�s husband.The three of them spent the weekend together, but Lauren didn�t have any of her sales calls scheduled until Tuesday morning. �I�ve got to head to work,� Ashley said as Lauren made her way into the kitchen for breakfast. �Mike is off today, so he can keep you company,� she said without a hint of concern as the door shut behind her.Lauren took Ashley�s confidence and lack of jealousy as a dare. She ate a quick breakfast and then decided to lounge on the sofa, reading a trade magazine. She consciously decided that the nightshirt and long leggings she was wearing were modest enough, even if Mike did happen to walk in on her.After a half hour or so, Lauren began getting frustrated. Mike had yet to rouse from bed, much less catch her scantily clad in his own living room. She was thinking about doing yoga (loudly) to draw him out when she heard his door crackle open. She stayed put on the sofa, innocently reading her magazine.Mike grunted hello and made himself some cereal. He made his way over, eating his cereal from behind the sofa and making small talk. She flirted openly with him, teasing him about his muscles and saying that Ashley was brave to leave him alone.�I imagine you get all sorts of women throwing themselves at you,� she purred.�I do alright,� Mike said with a smile. �But Ashley is more than enough woman for me,� he said, sipping the last of his milk from the bowl.As they chatted, Mike slipped around the sofa and sat beside her. He asked about her work, as a pharma sales rep. She told him all about the male-focused drugs her company made, and how �even healthy guys use them to�bulk up, if you know what I mean,� she said with an obvious glance at the healthy bulge in Mike�s lap.�I wouldn�t know,� he said confidently. �I�ve never needed any help.��Really?� Lauren asked incredulously, leaning closer to her friend�s husband. �Not even with Ashley? After all these years of marriage?� Each word brought her closer to his warm, firm body.�Especially not with Ashley,� he said confidently. He was smirking, as if he knew the game she was playing. He didn�t tell her to stop, which she took as permission to continue.�Really?� Lauren said, and in a swift move she straddled Mike�s legs, pressing her warm, naked pussy against his bulge. �Maybe I should check, just to be sure everything is working,� she cooed. She deftly reached behind her, pulling Mike�s hardening cock out of his briefs.�Oh, wow,� she blurted. �Ashley is a lucky woman,� she mumbled as she forced her lips onto Mike�s. She could feel his hands helping to free his cock from the underwear. She kissed him, pinning him down while his hands roamed her tight, naked ass. Her hand reached back, stroking his cock hard. She quickly impaled herself on his cock before he could come to his senses or try to stop her. Lauren didn�t often need to trick her prey, almost all of the men she lured away from another woman came willingly. She knew, thought, that once he h

While there's no right or wrong way to blog, great content is the key to blogging success. But share-worthy content isn't always easy to come up with or create, is it? Today I'm coming to the rescue with 50 blog post ideas that you can use to provide your readers with quality content and keep them coming back for more. 1. Share a behind-the-scenes look of your blog or business. Everyone loves getting sneak peeks of what your office looks like, photos of things "in the works," and looks at rough drafts. Michaela Noelle did this on her blog last week and it was a great success! It also adds a little personality to your blog and allows your readers to connect with you. 2. Write a blog series on your process. I did this with my creative process last month and it was a huge hit. Readers love to find out how you do what you do, so highlight each step of a project in a blog series and walk them through your process. This is helpful for readers who are in a similar field and for potential clients and customers. 3. Roundup helpful posts and link to other bloggers. Readers also like finding out which blogs you follow along with and what posts you find interesting, so link to other bloggers and share articles and posts that might be helpful for your audience. (This is also a great way to connect and network with other bloggers. I can see which bloggers refer to me in my analytics and I almost always reach out to them!) Jenny Purr does a great job with link-ups. 4. Write a post on how you got started. We all love a good success story. Share your experience and tell your readers how you got here. Plus, it's fun to document your journey and remember where you started. And on that note... 5. Share tips on how to become successful in your industry. Which resources and advice have helped you get to where you are? Don't keep all of those tips to yourself - share the love with your readers! 6. Feature a professional in your field. This could take the form of reaching out to someone for a Q&A on your blog (like this Coffee Date with Molly Jaques) or just highlighting someone in your industry that you admire. This is also a great networking opportunity. 7. Host a giveaway. Readers love getting free things, whether it's content, entertainment, or goodies. Create excitement around your blog and reward your readers for following along with you by hosting a giveaway! Giveaways are also great marketing tools for your blog. 8. Write a polarizing post about something you may not agree with in your field. While it's easy for all of us to go along with the crowd and do what's popular, there may be some things in your industry that you want to do differently. Write about it! (Please note that I'm not promoting negativity, complaining, ranting, or bashing - there's a way to go about this tastefully and respectfully.) Here are some great polarizing posts: Time for Change, 3 things I'm no longer doing for my website, One Word That May Be Hindering Your Business 9. Make a list of things you wish you had known when ... Hindsight is 20/20 and we all have the opportunity to learn from others' mistakes. Share a handful of things you wish you had known when you first started blogging, writing, designing, doing calligraphy, photographing weddings, etc. Need an example? Read this post. 10. Share a day-in-the-life post. We all like to see how successful people go about their day. Write down your day (without going into too much detail) and give your readers an insider look! Breanna Rose does this in her Creative Diaries series, and they are some of my favorite posts. 11. Ask someone to guest post about something specific in your industry. We never have all the answers and it's fun to get advice from other people that are doing great things in your field. It's also fun to highlight talented people and bring attention to their business. You could even look at it as a networking and marketing opportunity and do a trade - ask someone to guest post on your blog in return for guest posting on theirs. 12. Write an informational post about your blogging platform. Readers love learning about how you do what you do. Write a review of your blogging platform, the things you like and don't like, and whether or not you would recommend it. This post about Squarespace has been one of my most popular posts and I continue to get emails and feedback about it! 13. Roundup and highlight the tools you use in your trade. I said it in #12 but it's worth repeating: readers love learning how you do what you do. Make a list of things you use everyday and share it on the blog! Here's my example. 14. Teach your readers about something you're an expert in. We all love to learn from the pros and get insider information. Content like this will be shared over and over again and gain a lot of feedback. 15. Share some takeaways from a recent experience, workshop, or event. Have you attended an event related to your field in the last few months? Share it on the blog and highlight your favorite moments! Your readers will love reading about your experience and the workshop/conference may even share your post, too. 16. Make a list of things people should avoid in your industry. Sometimes it's even more helpful to learn about what not to do. Share some common mistakes that people make and how to avoid them. I was a little leery of sharing my Top 10 Design Mistakes to Avoid, but I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback! 17. Highlight milestones, launches, and important events. It's always good to have a reason for people to get excited about your blog/business. Make a big deal out of changes and events by featuring them on the blog! 18. Explain the meaning behind your blog/business name. Some names are straightforward, but some have a fun story behind them. Turn it into a blog post and share the story behind your blog/business name. (The meaning of the Elle & Company is mentioned in this post.) 19. Feature the people you work with. It's rare that we run a blog or business completely on our own; there are usually people who work for us or with us to help us keep things running, even if it's just by their encouragement. Use your blog to highlight them, promote them, and feature their work. I featured my biggest fan and business partner a few months ago, and it's one of my favorite posts to-date. 20. Make a list of things people may not know about your trade. There's always information out there that people are surprised to hear. For example, non-designers may not know that using Comic Sans is one of the biggest no-no's in this industry. Create a list of "did you know" items and share it with your readers. I guarantee it will be a hit. 21. Write a review of a product you use often. If you're a photographer, write about your favorite lenses. If you're a designer, share about your favorite software. If you're an entrepreneur, share the programs you use for project management and accounting. People are always on the lookout for helpful products and tools - share your feedback with them. 22. Repurpose old blog posts with a roundup. Chances are that you've spent hours on blog posts that are now buried in your archives. Share them again by doing a roundup! A Beautiful Mess does this at the end of every month to highlight their posts and I did this recently with my Weekly Truth backgrounds. Don't let those great posts go to waste. 23. Repurpose an old blog post with a follow-up. Can you add onto something you've already done? Write a sequel or a "part 2" to an old blog post and make use out of that content again. 24. Repurpose an old blog post with a revision. Do you have a post that you wrote a couple years ago that could be revamped or reused? Make some revisions and post it again! 25. Share about how you use a certain social media outlet for your blog/business. There are so many social media outlets out there and everyone uses them a little differently. Share about one of your favorites and give your readers tips on how you use it for your blog/business. Here are some examples of posts I've done on Instagram and Pinterest. 26. Turn an FAQ or inquiry into a blog post. Is there a common question that readers ask you by email or in your post comments? Turn it into a blog post! An email from an Elle & Company reader regarding content actually inspired this blog post. If it's something that multiple readers have asked you about, chances are their are more people who would love to know more about it, too. 27. Tell an interesting story. We all love a good tale and we all enjoy being entertained. Do you have a "you're not going to believe this" story? Share it on your blog! 28. Write an informative post on how people can work best with you. Are you a calligrapher, photographer, or wedding planner? Share some tips for brides on how to make the process as simple as possible. Are you an interior designer? Share some insights on how clients and designers can maintain a great working relationship. This is helpful for current and future clients and it's also helpful for those in your field who are just getting started. 29. Create and share a free resource. We all love free things. That's why we follow along with blogs in the first place! Find creative ways to share free resources with your audience. I do this with my Weekly Truth series and it's been a hit (especially on Pinterest!) 30. Find a creative way to link up with other bloggers/business owners. There are several ways you can go about this one. You could create a writing challenge like Bailey did with her Blogtember series, start a fun linkup like What I Wore Wednesday, or partner with another blog friend like Michaela and I did for the Home Suite Home project. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and come up with something distinctly you! 31. Create a blog series on a project. People love following along with step-by-step transformations (that's why Young House Love was my favorite blog for so many years!). Are you working on a project for a client, remodeling your home, or training for a marathon? Share about it on the blog and show sneak peeks of the transformation as you go. 32. Highlight one of your products or services. This is your blog; use it to your advantage! Come up with creative ways to highlight your business and your products. This could take the shape of a "how-to" post or you could pose them as a solution to a particular problem. 33. Create an infographic. Not only are graphics and photos more interesting and entertaining, they're sharable. Even if you aren't able to draw one yourself, compile information on a topic in your field and come up with a creative way to display it. I did this with the feedback I received from a reader survey this past summer and the infographic was a hit! Which perfectly transitions into my next idea... 34. Take a reader survey and come up with a unique way to share the results. Not only is this feedback helpful for you, but readers like to see who else is following along with you. A Beautiful Mess and Young House Love always do this well. 35. Share your mission statement and blog/business strategy. Write a post on what's at the heart of your blog or business. Why do you do what you do? What motivates you? 36. Define or share your take on your industry. For example, many people use the term "branding" but designers approach that subject differently depending on who you talk to. I wrote a post on branding after I officially launched my design services this past summer to approach the subject in my own terms. Do you have your own take on your field? Share it on your blog! 37. Find a creative way to share tidbits of your life lately. There are a million and ten ways you could approach this, so come up with something original! Some of my favorite examples include Awkward and Awesome and Clara Conversations. 38. Create a "through the years" or flashback post. Is there a tradition or event that you participate in year after year? Your readers would probably love to see it on your blog. An example? This post by Justin and Mary on their past Halloween costumes. 39. Give away some secrets of your trade. Many people shy away from sharing the information that has made them successful for fear that it could create competition, but it's had the opposite effect in my experience. Share what you know! If you do what you do well, you'll have nothing to worry about. Readers will love gaining your great insight and information. 40. Teach people how to make something unique. We all have a DIY board on Pinterest, don't we? There's something in each one of us that loves learning how to make something that we wouldn't have thought to make before. 41. Write about some common misconceptions in your industry. Are there things that people assume about your business or trade that aren't accurate? Address them in a blog post! 42. Ask your readers for feedback. Do you have a question or dilemma? Let your readers participate by sharing it on the blog. Michaela did this with her readers in our Home Suite Home project when she asked them to vote on which design concepts they liked best. 43. Share your sources of inspiration. We see this all over the place on blogs, but think of your own creative way to make an inspiration post distinctly your own. I do this on my blog a couple time each month in Today's Top 3. 44. Solve a problem. Is there a particular issue that keeps coming up in your industry time and again? Provide a solution to it! Some examples? Braid Creative wrote a post on organizational tools for creative entrepreneurs and Ashley wrote a post for photographers on organizing their email inbox. 45. Write a post on the best (or worst!) advice you've ever received. This could be both helpful and hilarious for your audience. 46. Highlight the best (or worst!) moments since starting your blog/business. Again, this could be both helpful and hilarious for your audience. 47. Share your recent projects. Blogging is a great marketing tool. Use it to your advantage and highlight your latest work! Not only is it fun for your readers to follow along with, but you never know if potential customers are following along with you. Think of it as free advertising for your portfolio. 48. Share a testimonial or success story. It could be about your experience with another professional or a clients' experience with you. Word of mouth is the best advertisement. 49. Surprise your readers with something unexpected. Do you have a hidden talent or trait that your readers might not know about? Find a way to highlight it on your blog! I did this in my "That's a Rap" post and although it was totally random, it gave my readers a glimpse of my personality outside of blogging and designing. 50. Create a long list of something specific to your trade/blog/industry/field. Case in point. That's a wrap! Which ideas are you most excited to try? Do you have any suggestions for no-fluff, content-rich blog posts that I may not have mentioned?
