  1. You write a must-read blog!!!

    This is an AWESOME list Michelle!! I just love it and have printed it out to put in my notebook so that I can have some great ideas at the tip of my fingers as I sit down to write!

    You are always so helpful with your blog tips, thank you and please keep up the good work!


  2. I love blog posts like these! I keep meaning to make a swipe file with them but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Hmmm – wondering if I have time to do that today?

    1. Swipe files are a great idea. I’ve got some printed copies of content brainstorming worksheets I keep handy. Makes it a lot easier to get started writing.

  3. […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Terri Zwierzynski, Helen Raptoplous. Helen Raptoplous said: RT @MichelleShaeffr Blog: 50 Article/Blog Title Ideas For You http://bit.ly/e0LvqW (TY! good stuff!!) […]

  4. Thanks for sharing such a comprehensive list – I have no excuse now…
    My Favourite is no. 24 – If I was my mother I would tell myself…
    I’m still trying to work out the good advice ha ha

    1. LOL Yes, that could be a fun one to write about

  5. They’re great – thanks, Michelle!

    1. You’re welcome, Angelika.

  6. Oh, these give me a couple of ideas . . . thanks for posting them!

    1. Yay! Glad they sparked some ideas for you, Leanne.

  7. Thanks Michelle – it’s always nice to have someone else do some of the creative heavy lifting!

    1. I agree, sometimes it just helps to have a jumping off point to getting our brains going. :)

  8. Superb! What a treat and thanks a heap! And I really appreciate the inclusion of additional resources. Way cool. :)

    1. I kept thinking I shouldn’t run out of topics for a year with those links. LOL

  9. P.S. LOVE the new look in your header — Sweeeet!

  10. Thank you. I appreciate this because it’s always practical to use these “templates” when you’re brain stuck . I have a massive collection of swipe files and fill-in-the blanks for almost anything marketing or advertising related (emails, sales letters, blog posts, articles, ads, landing pages, etc:)

    1. Brain stuck – that’s a good way to describe it. I think we all hit that point sometimes and just having a few ideas (or a whole file full of ideas) can get us un-stuck again.

  11. Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for sharing these 50 ideas. You are great at sharing lots of information and and useful content. I love your blog too.

    Have a great day,


    1. Thanks, Cindy, I appreciate that.

  12. Every blogger should read this post! If they can’t get their writing juices flowing from your list, maybe they should rethink being a blogger! LOL

    1. LOL Hopefully at least one suggestion would spark a good idea for someone. :)

  13. mwhahahahaha #5 If I ran the world… As my FB status regularly has World domination plans this will fit right up my alley. Oh so happy now. Thank you Michelle!

  14. Brilliant list, thanks Michelle particularly like #46

    1. And I’d bet you could write a great post for that one. :)

  15. Lol.. I laughed at some of them. Thank you for sharing :D

  16. With this list, I will be set for the year! Many of them also have an opposite you can write about too. For example, #20: Technology I Can’t Live Without – you can turn it around to be Technology I Can Live Without )and talk about those gadgets that just do not make sense to you!)

    Again, thanks for the list and the extra resources.

    Be Well.

  17. Great Idea, Michelle! I hope you don’t mind, but I linked to your site in two of my recent blog posts, including this page of blog topic ideas. I needed these to get my creative juices flowing this morning! :)

    1. I appreciate the links, Janis. Thank you.

  20. Hi, Michelle — This isn’t really a comment — although thank you for your post. Very helpful!

    Just wanted to let you know that at least on my computer (the vertical Shares pop up on your blog makes it impossible to read the article. I had to print it out to read it.

    (And now I can’t read the left hand side of what I’m writing because of the shares pop-up. Is there a way to suppress it I’m not discovering?

    Thanks. Loving the Ultimate Blog Challenge!

    1. Hey Carol, thanks for letting me know. I’ll see if I can program it to hide that on narrow screens.

  21. Congrats! You have some great suggestions there. Here’s a good addition for your list, if I unashamedly say so myself. I originally posted this in September 2007 and reposted in 2009: 52 Blog Topics for Artists – Get Started Now! http://x.co/blogtopics. It continues to get steady hits.

  40. I just found your blog post and I love it. I have fired up a new love for my blog again. After going back and forth with what is going to best for my website I have decided to keep it. I know plenty about the Industry I like to post about but getting catchy titles was drawing a blank for me. The second a read through the first fie I knew exactly where I need to be headed. I’m going to save this page(bookmark) and refer back to it, when I get stumped. Thanks Michelle for sharing a great post!
