20 Food Blog Topics for When You’re Uninspired

20 Food Blog Topics for When You're Uninspired

Okay, blog peeps. Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt so drained of inspiration that you are convinced it’s the end of the world. You begin thinking irrational thoughts like “my blog will never be successful! this is the end to *enter blog name* as I know it!” You start re-thinking your entire purpose in the blogosphere and what EVEN ARE YOU DOING?! “Gee, you’re not yourself when you have writer’s block”, your friends will say, as they hand you a spoonful of peanut butter.

Well, I’ve been there. Many, many, many times. Some days I’m driving home or on a morning run and it’s like every epic blog post idea you could imagine comes flowing through my head like a violent river passing through a bed of rocks. Of course, these are instances where recording ideas is very limited. Oh, and then there are times when my mind is a vast, black hole and I’m close to not even knowing my own name.

Today is a good day, because I’m feeling inspired, and I’ve compiled a list of quality, interesting topics for you to write about when you’ve got nothin’ in ya. On those horrible, discouraging days, simply come back to your good friend TBB and lean on my virtual shoulder.

3. What makes the food culture in your city different than others

4. Document your next experience at a restaurant, good or bad

5. Talk about your culinary journey – when did you start cooking, and why did you? what were you afraid of at first, and how did you overcome those fears?

6. Share a BTS post about your time in the kitchen

7. Talk about a number of cities that you want to visit, and what excites you about their respective food scenes

8. Share a ‘day-in-the-life’, spotlighting your meals and food rituals

11. Talk about your favorite, healthy foods, and the benefits of those foods

    AWESOME ideas. These are not only perfect when you’re feeling a little uninspired, but also great for when you’re short on TIME. i.e. your 9-5 takes over and you have to cut some blogging corners. When I feel I can’t create great content in the time I have on the nights or weekends, or say the recipe fails and I’m all of out sun, I like to think about other ways I can connect to my readers, while still offering useful content. I think that process alone actually can motivate and inspire me to keep moving forward.

    These are great ideas! I especially love the “BTS” ideas. Im such a sucker for looking into people’s lives – even something as simple as how they create food in their kitchen or do a photoshoot! I guess thats just the people watcher in me :)

    I love sharing things my mom taught me in the kitchen when I’m out of ideas. Mothers are a wealth of knowledge! And when I’m in the car and inspiration strikes I tell siri to make a note and she jots my ideas down for me. It can be a bit jumbled but she usually gets the gist.

    Wow!! I love this!! These are so great and def needed when you just don’t know what to write about!! I’ve actually been thinking about #1 for a bit and def need to do a post on that!! Thanks for all the great ideas!!

    This is gold! So many good ideas that even if you aren’t stuck you should use if you’re a food blogger! I love the ones about traditions and family recipes. I was thinking about sharing my family’s secret scone recipe (if they let me) 😀

  6. says

    Wow, thanks for this post! Sometimes I get so busy or stressed that finding a topic for a blog post is a real struggle. You have given great ideas!

  7. says

    These are so good suggestions! As a food blogger I sometimes tend to post the same kind of recipes over and over again – and it’s so good when someone brings you inspiration like this. Thanks!

    Thanks for these great ideas! I have to say my favorite was #16, simply because it’s not too hard to pick one thing you already use and love, and share that with your readers. Will probably be trying some of these other ideas when I feel uninspired as well :)
