Brainstorm unique content ideas for a business blog (plus social media updates)

Do you remember those surveys we sent around as teens and posted to our LiveJournal and Xanga blogs? It was way back when Justin was with Britney and Britney was dancing around in spandex.

I’ve always thought that the most interesting blogging prompts are the ones that are reminiscent of those epic surveys of old. There’s only so many times you want to hit “reply all” on a series of questions that ask about your favorite color and the last person you called. You want oddball Qs, ones your friends would never pop over your 42-minute lunch period.

Those are the sorts of surveys I coveted then, and they’re the sorts of writing prompts I like to use when I’m brainstorming blog post ideas today.

Why?

Because it’s the strange questions that inspire interesting answers, and it’s the strange blog prompts that inspire original blog posts.

If you love a blogging prompt that makes you think beyond the ordinary, take a seat and pull out a blank sheet of paper. It’s brainstorming time.

92 blogging prompts for online business owners

The beginning of every great blog post is inspiration. These blogging prompts are meant to spark your inspiration.

Perhaps you’re developing blog posts from a content marketing plan and you want to add a personal element to your copy. Or, maybe you’re moving forward with a looser idea of what your editorial calendar looks like.

Regardless of how you’re blogging, blogging prompts can help you do it better. If you’re not quite sure how to go from a blog prompt to a blog post, take a look at my brainstorming guide. It’ll teach you different tactics to use to build content from one interesting idea.
