I’m suffering from a serious case of PCBO this January. Also known as Post Christmas Burn Out, it’s the kind of burn out you experience from, doing absolutely nothing and eating far too much Christmas Pudding over the festive period.
Since coming back to work, I’ve been trying to overcome my burn out by slowly coaxing my brain into work-mode again. Writing blog posts is taking double the amount of time it usually does, and coming up with ideas for them is even more trickier. With that in mind, I’ve put together a new resource that might help bloggers who are also suffering from PCBO.
My new template features 24 blog post ideas for January and is suited for a variety of bloggers. From book bloggers to family bloggers to fashion bloggers, there’s at least 1 idea on it that will suit your audience and make posting this month a little be easier.
To use the template, all you need to do is save the image above. Once you’ve saved it you can use it three different ways.
Print it out1. Print the template out.
2. Tick the boxes once you’ve published or scheduled the blog post.
3. Pin it above your desk or workspace for when you’re next stuck on an idea for a blog post.
Fill it in digitally1. Save the template to the Photos folder on your phone.
2. Open the image and click Edit and tap the Pen Tool.
3. Using the Pen tool, tick the boxes once you’ve published or scheduled the blog post.
4. Resave the template and keep it on your phone for when you’re next stuck on an idea for a blog post.
Use it on Instagram Stories1. Save the template to the Photos folder on your phone.
2. Open Instagram Stories and swipe up to bring up the template on your Stories.
3. Using the Pen Tool on Instagram, tick the boxes of the blog posts you’ve published this month.
4. Publish the template so your followers can see what you’ve posted.
5. Reupload and tick additional boxes as you post and schedule more blog posts.
It’s as easy as that. I hope you find it useful for combating the dreaded PPBO this January. Let me know what you think of the blog post ideas and whether you’ll be using any of them this month in the comments below. Until next time.
