Magazines are probably my favorite places to look for blog inspiration. I have gotten so many ideas in the past for blog topics from old magazines that I have. As you write about the topic on your blog, you can even refer back to the magazine on your website and tag them on social media. Share with them how an article inspired your blog post.


In the past I have skimmed the library and even books on Amazon as I came up with ideas in my niche on topics to cover. Sometimes book titles or even sections of a book can present you with potential topics to cover on your website. You could even refer back to the book and use events within it to discuss a specific topic.

Television Shows and Movies

Have you ever watched something that was relatable and it gave you inspiration for something to write about? A lot of things that I have watched in the past have given me ideas for topics that I could cover and that kept my readers interested. Some of your favorite shows could have hidden gems in it and could reveal evergreen subjects that you could expand on.

Other blogs or websites

Other bloggers have given me inspiration for topics to write about where they shared their tips on a topic or their ideas on a subject. You could take their idea and put your own spin on it. However, you should definitely refer back to their blog post. Share with your readers how you got the amazing blog post idea from them and how you wanted to cover the topic as well. Not only would you be creating new content, but you could even create the beginning of a bond with a new blogger. Don’t forget to email them the blog post you created saying that you loved their idea and that you referred back to them to give them credit.
