For the most part, I draw because it is fun and I want to improve. I'm not majoring in visual arts, so it's mostly something I can do on the side or as a hobby. I draw things that make me happy and I want to share them on here, that's why I joined instagram. But I don't appreciate people telling me what I should draw or how I should draw something or that I should go out of my way to do something special for them. Nobody should have to let other people tell them how to do the things that they by deanna

When people say they don't believe in God, they are in denial. The Bible tells us that the evidence for God is everywhere!

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? by Joao.Almeida.d.Eca

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?

Paul Coelho. Smart man. My new thing is travel. I think the best way to spend your time is being with someone you are madly in love with  enjoying life. Some people would rather network  fill every single minute engaging with as many people as possible. I am about travel now, alone or eventually with someone who gets me. So, solo works for me. by Seriously?

The past few days have been extremely overwhelming for me. As a budding entrepreneur it seems I have a never ending to-do list. I have found recently that my OWN self care has been slipping. And that makes me feel guilty and out of integrity. Because I teach self care. I preach the benefits of it. I need to remind myself from time to time to listen to my own advice. . Those of us who are super sensitive empaths tend to be very outward focused. We are always scanning our environment feeling into peoples moods and energies. We are also natural born people pleasers. We LOVE to help other. Which is a beautiful thing. But it can become harmful to us when we feel guilty saying no. We feel if we say no to someone or an event or project that we are letting someone down disappointing them or worse- making them angry. We often feel that their reaction is our responsibility. And so we put ourselves last time and time again. We say yes over and over until we are completely drained exhausted and resentful. . But no is NOT A BAD WORD. No is a self-loving self-respecting responsible mature and often times kind word. We have to start asking ourselves why we always fall to the end of the line. Why we are so worried about disappointing others- but what about disappointing ourselves? I often ask my clients who are struggling to say no what would you say to a friend in this situation. Because the answer is almost always that the friend should stand up for and care for her energetic needs. So then why is it that YOU do not deserve the same is my next question. . You deserve to say no. You deserve to stand up and to take care of you. You are important and needed in this world. But if you dont give yourself the love you so freely give to others you will be stuck in a cycle of overwhelm turmoil and exhaustion. . Join me on January 26th for a potent conversation on how to care for yourself as a sensitive soul in this world. This powerful workshop is FREE and will ignite you on your path to re-connecting to the beautiful truth of who you are and to working on setting boundaries and practicing the magical word no. .

This quote is very unique because it makes you realize how much beauty there is in the world. Stars are something most people take for granted and just like our blessings it is hard to count them all. You do not necessarily have to count them and know them all but realize how many things you are gifted with. As well as with the stars, it is impossible to count them all but it is better to at least recognize them. by monimarin

When somebody asks you, "what do you do?", what do you answer with? Most people fill the other individual in with their occupation and line of work. Is that what defines you? It is interesting how people choose to answer this question. Many people confuse their "profession" with their "life". I assure you, they are two different things. by marietta

I’m a big fan of one-on-one conferencing with students as a way to connect with them and check for understanding. I use this “deli-style” format with students as a fun way to let them know it is their turn to conference with me. Each student is given a ticket (from 1 to how ever many students you have in class) at the beginning of class and meets me at the designated conference area in the room when they hear the “DING!” and their number appears on the projector screen. Kids love it! by shannon

The trick is to put the pan in a cold oven and then switch it on and begin your timer. Im amazed how many people dont know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. I hate getting SPLATTERED!! This works perfect! I've tried it and we love it! by brandy

I love the outdoors, anything and everything to do with it. We get visitors here all the time, but it's going to be especially busy because of the solar eclipse. I'm sweet, loyal, and down to earth.

GIVE AND RECEIVE/ Being away for a bit always reminds me how much I need to teach as much as for some other they need to practice. It seems like every time i teach I receive just as much as I can give from/to the people around me. It is so precious to me to meet those people share with them that common journey we have with yoga and move together. Teaching is definitely not one direction it's about exchanging Miss you Yogis ! by lila

We used to love this spring activity. It was a family friendly craft that all of us, from the youngest child to the grandparents, would sit and do together. Later on we would exchange stories of how many people we had fooled into thinking pussy willows actually grew in these colors. If pussy willows do not grow near you, you will need to purchase them. Regardless of how you find them, I hope you enjoy this spring rite of passage as much as I did when I was a kid. by LiesbethLap

Make constellations in a tube. I actually do this a lot when we have a spare tube for my kids and for my former daycare I would take dark construction paper scraps and just put it around roughly flat and use a pin to push in the outline of whatever the kids wanted...Great reward. They love it. Or you can, as I did for the older kids, let them select the constellation and I would punch it in. Great cheap activity to WOW any child. by Sandy May Jones
