  1. What a fantastic list! You will see a few of those pop up on Cookie Break, Kay! ^^ There are so many great ideas there, thank you so much for putting this together. I hope your friend can grab some ideas from here, too, and start their own blog! Best of luck to them (and do share the link when it’s up and running, so I can go take a look 🙂 )


  2. Reblogged this on and commented:

    This reblog couldn’t have come at a better time. Another friend of mine is looking at setting up a blog and has asked me for some basic post ideas to get her started.

    The following list has 50 post ideas- some I have done, some I haven’t. Yes, they may not be original, but it is up to each writer/ blogger to bring something new to the table.
