It can be difficult sometimes to think about what to write for your next blog post. Sometimes you can have so many ideas and a number of draft posts written up, but sometimes those posts don’t always seem ready to post. I think it is something that we all tend to struggle with from time to time.
When you find yourself looking for inspiration for something to write, it can be hard. I’ve found myself looking at countless blog post idea lists at times and even though many of them are filled with great ideas, I find that many are tailored towards more general lifestyle, home and beauty ideas. Of course, that can be somewhat challenging to write about and incorporating video games into it.
However, I didn’t really find many blog post ideas or prompts for those who write about video games, technology or geek lifestyle. So I decided to come up with some ideas myself.
Below is a selection of ideas and prompts for video games, technology and geek lifestyle inspired blog posts. Whether those ideas spark another idea or you write about the prompt itself, it is entirely up to you!
