Where Do You Get Your Blog Ideas?

I thought it would be nice just to kick some creativity around. If you don’t mind sharing, I’d like to ask you, Where do you get your blog ideas from?

For me, at least 85 percent comes from my daily Bible reading. For instance, my most recent blog, “Why Believers ‘Get’ God,” came directly from reading the Book of 1 John. I got to the very end of the book, read Chapter 5, verse 20, was struck by it, and a blog was born.

The other 15 percent of my blogs come from politics, if it gets under my skin enough; current events, if impactful enough; and least of all, devotionals. I’m primarily a Bible teacher, so the vast majority of my blogs involve expounding upon Scripture.

I know others of you, on the other hand, are more devotional and personal in nature, and your blogs reflect that.

So, for as much as you care to share, I’d love to know – and I think readers of this post will as well – where do you get your blog ideas. You can be brief or long in your replies; it’s entirely up to you. I love hearing how the creative process works in others, and I’d love to hear how your creative process works!
