33 Book Blog Post Ideas & Planning Calendars | May

One of the things that has helped me immensely during my blogging journey is planning out my content. Having a list of blog post ideas on hand is an amazing resource. Even if I never write all of those posts, having a cache of post ideas on hand majorly reduces any anxiety or stress I may feel about getting content out.

To make things a bit easier for you, I’ve compiled a list of 33 blog post ideas, printable calendar templates and a list of resources that may help you come up with some blog post ideas as well.

If you use any of these ideas, I would absolutely love to read your post so please link it in the comments 🧡

Blog Post Resources

A really useful website for post ideas that relate to current holidays or celebrations is Days of Note. Here you will find all daily, weekly and monthly celebrations no matter how small or wacky. For post ideas specific to your niche, Pinterest is an amazing site to search. Just type your topic into the search bar and you will get a wealth of posts people have created inspired by this topic that you can put your own spin on. You can also use Soovle to search your topic or niche and it will give you a list of searches people have been making related to that term on several search engine sites including Google and YouTube.

  1. Honestly I really need to spend more time on this myself. Most of my blog content is just book reviews and they can stress me out quite a lot, so I think I need to push myself to write more content that isn’t just reviews!

      1. Yes! I always try to word what I say really politely when it’s a bad review, and sometimes I just… liked a book? There’s nothing much else to say!
