Blogtober Post Ideas and Inspiration

Blogtober and Autumn Blog Post Ideas

So if you read my post yesterday you’ll know that myself and a group of bloggers from The Travel Bloggers Club are taking part in the Blogtober Challenge this Autumn.

I put together this list of post ideas to help out anyone who might be finding it tough to think up ideas for their posts.

Of course, they could come in handy for any bloggers looking for Autumn blog post ideas! Or if you keep a journal they could be great Journalling prompts for the month too!

I’m pretty excited to be taking part in the Blogtober Challenge this year – it’s definitely going to be a push for me to complete it. You might have seen this post where I outlined all the steps for writing a successful blog post. As you can imagine with all of that to do for each and every post it’s going to be a tough month!

My Blogtober Plan

My first step for the blogtoberย challenge was to write down a huge list of blog post ideas.

I then picked out around 40 of them and have written down a few outlines for each. Honestly, I’m still not certain which ones I’ll use so do let me know if you have favourites you’d like to read!

My next step is to draft out a few of the posts and go and take lots of photos that I can slot into posts throughout. In fact, I was kinda glad that my bus was on diversion this morning. My extended commute meant Iย found the perfect place for some Autumn photos in London!

I am hoping to have drafts for the first five days of the Blogtober challenge ready by the end of the day today. Doing so will give me a head start and hopefully make the month easier!

Blogtober Post Ideas, Autumn Blog Post Ideas

Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year so I’ve got plenty of ideas for blog posts for this season! I’m really looking forward to posting a few of these ideas myself.

Let me know…

Which ones would you like to see me share on the blog? Are there any particular topics you’d love to see me share here?

Oh and feel free to pin to Pinterestย for future inspiration!

Spread the love

  • Reply Helen at Casa Costello October 2, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    There are some great ideas here. I’m not necessarily following the #Blogtober17 prompts either. There’s definitely no excuse for any of us to run out of blog ideas with so many great ideas floating about

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 2, 2017 at 9:54 pm

      Thanks, Helen – unfortunately, I came across the prompts after I had planned most of my content! Will probably link in a few where possible though!

  • Reply Tyra October 3, 2017 at 12:30 am

    Woooow such great ideas! I would love to see you write about haunted walks in your city and the top 10 free things to do!

  • Reply Mary Leigh October 3, 2017 at 3:19 am

    Wow! These all seem like really great ideas! I manage to get at least one quality post up a week, so I have no clue how I would get to all these! I think you have a good strategy to get ahead on some of the drafts and to be sure to take lots of photos this month!

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 3, 2017 at 8:49 pm

      Thanks Mary – it’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!

  • Reply Rahat Arora October 3, 2017 at 8:12 am

    Such a great list of ideas. I probably have enough ideas to blog daily but not enough time.

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 5, 2017 at 8:15 pm

      It’s been 2am finishes for me all week as I work full time too! Very time consuming ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh this is such a good idea! I wish that I could commit to something like this…maybe one day x

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 5, 2017 at 8:13 pm

      I’m still not sure if i’ll get through the whole month!

  • Reply Emma Raphael October 5, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    Lots of brilliant ideas! Love the idea of a post about a local ghost story – perfect for this time of year! I always have lots of ideas, I just don’t seem to find the time to execute them all right now! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh how I wish I could commit to blogging every day- such a fab idea! I love the seasonal bucket lists and local activities x

  • Reply Rachel Hart September 24, 2018 at 8:42 am

    I know this post is from last year, but I’m just now finding it!
    I am thinking of participating in Blogtober this year for the first time. As much as I can anyway, I’m due on Oct 23rd with my first little man ๐Ÿ™‚ So we’ll have to see how far I get lol!
    I love this list and would love to know more about what kind of fall activities there are to do in your area! Are there pumpkin patches, apple picking farms or fall festivals? I’m from America so these are some of the things we have during the fall!
    Thanks again for the list! Some really great ideas on there!
