I'm going to let you in on a little secret of mine—I don't always like sitting down to write. Does that surprise you? A lot of people get the impression that bloggers just love sitting down and pouring over their keyboards with words just spilling out of their fingers. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it feels like that. There are times when I can't seem to get the words out fast enough. But, then there are plenty of days when I sit down and just can't seem to force myself to start writing. Can you relate?
If you have been asking yourself questions like "What do I write about?", "What blog post ideas will my readers connect with?", or simply "Where do I start?" don't worry. I have you covered. I'm going to share 6 theme ideas that readers love. These are general ideas which will allow you to easily tailor them to your category or niche. You can just choose one to use on your first, or next, blog post and get started.
Yes, you read that right. Today's topic is meal planning. Yes, I know it has nothing to do with blogging. And, yes, blogging is important.

But, it doesn't have to be that way. The reason so many people find themselves in this position is that they are starting off all wrong.
You know those times in life where you just get in a funk? You know you have things that need to be done to grow your blogging business but you just aren't motivated. That last thing you "feel" like doing is sitting down to work on your blog. Have you been there before? You're not alone!
