You know you should publish a blog post for your design business… like, today. But the little cursor on your screen is blinking at you and zero bright ideas are popping into your head.

So what do you do?

One option is to say “forget it” and move on…

…the other is to take a look at the 29 ideas below and get those creative juices flowing! (Go with number two!)

If you use your posts to solve your clients’ problems, your blog will add real value to their lives—and that’s when you see people sticking around and becoming clients.

Show Readers Your Design Taste & Expertise in the Field

1 | Answer the questions you hear most often from clients

4 | Spill a random fact that most people don’t know about the design process

5 | Define current design trends or styles (or debunk them)

6 | Write about an industry event, such as High Point Market. You can weigh in on the conversation even if you didn’t attend.
