30 Ideas For Great Blog Topics

Writer's block happens to the best of us sometimes.

30 Ideas For Great Blog Topics

The inspiration for this article comes from my current inability to be creative. Normally, before I sit down to write an article or a listicle, I, at least, have some idea of a topic in mind. Throughout the week, I take something that bothers me, or an idea I had, and I put it into words. Unfortunately, this week, I am still coming up blank.

Writer's block is a natural phenomena that happens to the most creative of us. Whether we need one sentence, one page, or one finished product, everyone experiences the inability to think of what to say next. Afraid of word vomiting on the page, we constantly scramble for that perfect phrase or idea. Yet, we continuously arise without an answer. We stumble over the sentences and stare at blank screens until it shines like a light-bulb in our heads. All we needed was that little push, that one idea to shift our gears.

So, if you ever find yourself at a loss for words, try out some of these topic ideas. These ideas are topical, meaning that they won't help you write a term-paper or a news article. However, writing takes practice, and good writing takes time. Here are some ideas to get the ball rolling and to freely write on. "I never feel more myself than when I'm writing; I never enjoy any day more than a good writing day." -Anthony Minghella,

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
