Things To Blog About When You Have Blog Block

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And today I really did not have any idea what I wanted to blog about. No outline, no idea, nothing. And so, I'm going to do what any other blogger does when they have brother's block. We blog about what we could do when we have brother's block.
So, let's get to it!

Things To Blog About When You Have Blog Block

1. Tutorials
People love to learn. And aren't we all continuously learning and evolving? So, what better to post a tutorial for something that you know a lot about that someone else might not. Plus, odds are, it might bring some more traffic to your blog, who knows? Some examples are:
-How To Get Out Of A Reading Slump
-How To Choose What Kind Of Book You Want To Read Next
-How To Get Into Reading Different Genres

2. Reviews
Well, duh... Reviews are mainly what people look for in book blogs, and so, it kinda makes sense to give a review or two.
Reviews kind of make up the mind of the reader of whether they should read that book or not, particularly if it is a book that isn't very popular.

3. Introductions
When I am particularly excited about a book that I have recently bought, I like to dedicate a post to that specific book to show advertise it, because the majority of series/trilogies/standalones that I read aren't very well known, and I like to advertise my favourites. Whether it's for a particularly cover, or the plot, it doesn't matter.

4. Top Tens and Lists
Top tens and Lists are relatively easy when your stuck on what to blog about. It can cover a ton of different basis, and it lets your viewer know what you might think about certain things. You can do a top ten/list about anything:
-Top Protagonists
-Top Characters That Aren't Protagonists
-Why I Like Each Genre
-Top Characters From Each Genres
-Most Interesting and Complex Characters
-Top Ten Books Of Each Genre
-Top Ten Series' and Trilogies
-Top Ten Standalones
-Top Ten Standalones I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet
-Top Ten Series/Trilogies I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet

5. Tags
Who doesn't love a good tag, huh? They're quick and easy, and they're a hell of a lot of fun, too! Plus readers love to see a new tag, and then everyone starts doing them. If anything, it adds traffic to your blog. Some examples are:
-The Book Life Tag
-The Nintendo Book Tag
-Would You Rather Book Tag
-The Joy Of Christmas Book Tag
-The Christmas Carol Book Tag
-Running Book Tag
-Book Courtship Tag
-Epic Reads Book Tag
...And lots more!

6. Monthly Wrap Ups and TBRs
This option just speaks for itself. Now they can be two different posts, or just the one, and you may only be able to do them at the end of/ start of each month, but they are really easy to do. (And odds are, you've done a review for all the books that you've listed on the Wrap Up, anyway)

7. Book Hauls
Ok, this is another way to get the books that you are interested in noticed-through a book haul. It's gives you a chance to let the public know what your initial thoughts are about each book, along with any research that you may have done before buying the book.

8. Others
Now this is an option, actually a category that you can put any post that isn't in one of the above. For example, books that you think would make great films.

And that is all that I have for you today! Don't forget to tune in on Friday for the next post! Byeeeee!
