Blog Post Ideas & National Days to Kick Off 2018

With the new year on the horizon, it's time for us all to start planning what we want from our blog for 2018 and to stand out we all want to write the freshest content. For some of you, who have been blogging a while like me, you can get stuck in a creative rut and struggle for new and exciting ideas. To give myself some motivation I always think what would I like to read or I sometimes read posts from some of my favourite bloggers for inspiration. Another helpful tip is to read a "blog post ideas" list which is what I am sharing with you today! Plus some national awareness days which always trend on twitter!
