Blog Content Ideas

Are you occupying your time during retirement by keeping a consistent blog of your special interests? Do you enjoy doing it, but are having a hard time coming up with ideas on what to blog about? Here are some content ideas to keep your blog going consistently.


Anything involving the great outdoors is a great place to look for inspiration for your personal blog. If you love to travel, you have a worldwide supply of content to capture and curate. You could also blog about your experiences with gardening. Try experimenting with planting new items you haven’t grown before. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, trees, etc. are all great gardening topics. Landscaping is also a great topic for blogging. Talking about your experiences, the challenges you face and how you overcame them, how it made you feel while you were working on it, and the benefits it has brought to you are things people are interested in reading about. Take plenty of pictures to document your progress from beginning to end so your followers can see the progress you made.


If you like to cook, cooking blogs are always a hit. People love to eat and are always looking for new, delicious recipes to try. If you have a knack for the video, record yourself while you are cooking and talk to the camera as if hosting your very own cooking show. You can edit the footage later, but step by step video instructions are great content for blogs. If you are talented enough you may even end up on the Food Network one day!

Try blogging about things you have extensive experience with, or a high level knowledge about. Insurance is always a hot topic, so discuss Medicare supplement plans for your followers if you know enough about them. Antique household objects or cars are also great blog topics. Document yourself restoring a piece of old furniture, or rebuilding that dream car of yours from childhood. It will be a fun and rewarding experience for you while you do it, and you get the added benefit of being able to blog about it at it the same time.


Blogging about things you’re skilled at doing is a great way to get noticed by your followers and possibly earn extra money on the side. Someone may want to hire you to do a task you are good at for them, or they may ask you to promote their product or service on your blog.
