Everybody’s starting to get ready for the holidays – including you, I bet! I know first-hand how hard it can be to sit down and focus on coming up with blogging ideas this time of year, so I’ve decided to give you a hand with 10 timely topics that will keep your blog active and provide your readers with information they can use right now.

Holiday Blogging Ideas

  1. How to organize your mailing list, prepare holiday cards for sending, and meet mailing deadlines
  2. How to have a Green Christmas
  3. Organizing books or products to give as gifts (Tip: Promote your own book or product if you have one. Otherwise, sign up for the affiliate program for your favorite online bookseller and earn commission on any sales generated through your blog.)
  4. How to repurpose everyday items into inexpensive handmade gifts
  5. How to organize gift wrapping supplies
  6. How to keep your home organized during the holidays
  7. How to plan healthy meals for your family during the holiday season
  8. How to organize holiday travel
  9. How to choose a calendar or planner for the new year (Tip: If your favorite products have an affiliate program, sign up so you can earn commission on any sales generated through your blog.)
  10. How to set realistic New Year’s Resolutions

Don’t worry that every organizer who reads Your Organizing Business is going to write the exact same posts as you! When you write from your heart and with your own voice, tapping into your personal and professional experiences, your unique personal brand will shine through, even if others cover similar topics.

    Great ideas Janet! Thanks for the reminder about bringing your own voice to similar topics. I think that is what stops most of us from moving forward with post ideas.

      I hope this will encourage you (and others) to do just that! Sometimes when I choose the topics for the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, I worry that there will be 10 posts saying basically the same thing, but I am always excited to see many different approaches to the same topic! Keep in mind that the Blog Carnival topics are much broader than the Blogging Ideas suggested in this post!

    This was very helpful! Thank you!

      Glad you liked it, Macy! Thanks for stopping by – you may be the youngest blogger I’ve “met” Woo hoo!

    This was very helpful! Thank you!

    I’m glad you found it helpful, Mick! Even though I had Christmas on my mind when I wrote this, the topics can easily be applied or adapted for other holidays too.

    What a fantastic list of ideas! List type posts are especially favorite too. I think they are even more helpful this time of year as people are busier and have less time. So bulleted, useful, timely points can get scanned and are appreciated. I keep a list of topics and ideas to for potential blog posts. Your list of suggestions will be great to add to the mix.

    It’s also a great point you make about not worrying if multiple people write on the same topic. Everyone has a unique view which keeps things interesting.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on November 26, 2018 at 1:14 pm

      I think most of these topics would work as list posts, Linda. I’m glad you found them helpful – your posts are always unique!

      • Linda Samuels Linda Samuels on December 12, 2022 at 10:04 am

        So fun revisiting this post! Your suggested topics are timely. Another popular category this time of year is the “Best of” posts. I know you have a POBC coming out soon featuring exactly that. Or at least it’s a post featuring our favorite or “best” posts of the year. This week I compiled a “best of” post with my favorite posts written (including a favorite quote) from this year. It was a challenge to pick one from each month, but fun to go back, read everything, and put a collection of 12 together.

        One advantage of a “best of” type post is it allows you to repurpose your content and give it some new life.

        • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 12, 2022 at 11:59 am

          I thoroughly enjoyed your “best of” post, especially because you wrote in a way that was very reader-focused and not, rah rah, look at all the great stuff I wrote for you – not that that is your style at all!

  6. Avatar Angela Agranoff on November 26, 2018 at 9:51 am

    Thank you for the helpful ideas! It’s amazing all that we can write about around the topic of the holidays!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on November 26, 2018 at 1:15 pm

      I guess there’s a lot of organization needed this time of year. 🙂

  7. Avatar Seana Turner on November 26, 2018 at 10:50 am

    So many great ideas here. I love that you talk about thinking ahead to a planner/system for the New Year. Now is the perfect time to considering this so you can hit the ground running in January. I just read a post by a fellow organizer about using recyclables to wrap gifts. Such a wonderful idea, and so environmentally friendly. I believe 25 organizers could write on the same topic and I would learn from each and every one!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on November 26, 2018 at 1:16 pm

      I love reading about paper planners, even though I haven’t used one in a couple of years or more! I also love reading different perspectives on the same topic.

  8. Avatar Sabrina Quairoli on November 26, 2018 at 12:24 pm

    Great list, Janet! I started thinking about what to write next week and am stuck. This helps me a lot. Thank you.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on November 26, 2018 at 1:17 pm

      I’m surprised – you always seem to have so many great ideas! I’m happy to have helped, and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  9. Avatar Sofia on October 19, 2021 at 7:12 am

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea its really help me a lot keep posting such amazing ideas

  10. Avatar Janet Schiesl on December 7, 2022 at 3:49 pm

    These are all great blogging ideas. I’ve done a few but will add a few of these to my list. Sometimes the ideas are the hardest part. Thanks.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 8, 2022 at 10:05 am

      I’m glad it was helpful! Even seasoned bloggers need a little inspiration now and then. 🙂

  11. Julie Bestry Julie Bestry on December 8, 2022 at 3:25 am

    Excellent ideas! I usually do clutter-free gifts and then am eager to leave the holidays behind, but I really should do a paper planner series! I haven’t done a calendar post in years! Thanks for the great notions! We should all take note for next fall, to slot a few of these at least!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 8, 2022 at 10:06 am

      Oh Julie, even though I use Google calendar, I adore paper planners and reading about all the wonderful new ones on the market. I will look forward to that!

  12. Avatar Lisa Gessert on December 12, 2022 at 3:58 pm

    Thank you Janet, organizing healthy meals is a great idea! I am trying so hard to lose my Covid weight (yes still using covid as an excuse) LOL but a great reminder that we can still eat better during the holidays!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 13, 2022 at 9:45 am

      LOL! It’s almost impossible to avoid all the treats, but if we eat healthy at regular meals, at least we know we’re trying.
