Hello! I hope you’re all keeping well and staying safe at home. Today I’ve decided to share 20 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas for Lifestyle Bloggers.
First, a little quarantine life update…
During the 2020 quarantine, I’ve been enjoying a bit of escapism through getting creative, focusing on self-care, and reading lots of books. I’ve tried some new recipes, practiced my Italian, and refashioned some of my old clothes.
However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. The pandemic has affected my mental health a lot, and I wish I could be with my family, but they live hours away. As I work in tourism, my workplace is closed and I cannot work. Which means, no money. I’ve spent a significant amount of time stressing about rent, anxiously awaiting my Master’s degree results (while knowing that our graduation has been cancelled), and getting upset reading stories about the deaths of NHS staff.
I have been absolutely blown away by the kindness of strangers during this time. A few lovely girls on Twitter offered to post me some paracetamol to help with my hemiplegic migraines, I’ve been playing Animal Crossing New Horizons with kind people online, and many bloggers have been very supportive when I’ve shared my struggles with money and chronic illness.
I’d like to particularly thank Kayleigh Zara for being such a lovely human being, and Emily Dyson for teaching me how to use Pinterest effectively* to increase my income. Both of these gals have been so supportive and have sent me advice and suggestions for helping my financial situation by making money online.
20 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas
Time for 20 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas! If you’re struggling with content ideas during this time, particularly if you usually focus on niches like travel, restaurants, or things to do out and about in London etc., your usual content might not be appropriate to publish right now.
However, that doesn’t mean you should abandon it! You can always write for the future. I have several travel blog posts featuring museums I visited in Edinburgh, but I’ve saved them as drafts for the future. I also shared 50 virtual museum tours to do at home!
Keep reading for 20 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas, or Pin It for later. I hope these ideas help inspire you!
20 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas
1. DIY Crafts.
Upcycled some clothes? Made something cool out of random junk in your house? Have you finally learned how to sew?
Write about it, and show your readers how to make something creative!
Have you made some amazing banana bread recently? Sourdough?
You might inspire someone to bake, and take their minds off the pandemic… while creating some tasty food!
3. Books you’ve been reading.
At the moment, my book blog posts have been the most popular, particularly on Pinterest.
With digital books available on Kindle, and many bookshops operating online, many are looking for recommendations.
Are you working towards a Goodreads Reading Challenge? How is it going?

4. Gratitude + Positivity Lists.
One thing I love about the internet is finding positivity and people sharing the little joys in life, even during the worst times.
By sharing what you’re grateful for, you could brighten someone’s day, even just a little, which is totally worth it.
5. Things you’re looking forward to after the pandemic.
We will get through this, one way or another. With so much tragedy, scary politics, it can be hard to imagine a future.
Try to write a list of things you’re looking forward to, even little things like going to a park with friends, or wandering around a museum.
Check out my huge list of 50+ free virtual museum tours.
6. Netflix & Disney+ Recommendations.
You could write about your favourite movies, documentaries, TV shows… or get super niche and write about specific genres, e.g. True Crime, Baking, or Stand-Up Comedy!
7. Online Small Business Gift Guides and Etsy Wishlists.
Many small businesses are struggling at the moment. If you’re thinking of writing a wishlist or a gift guide, try to feature small online businesses and Etsy shops!
The owners will be grateful, and customers will be happy that their money is helping someone in a tough situation, as opposed to a huge corporation.
8. Blogs you’ve been reading.
I don’t know about you, but I love it when I see bloggers recommending other bloggers! I’m here for community spirit and support.
9. Self-Care. Mindfulness. Meditation Tips. Useful Mental Health Apps or Books.
All of the above are very important, but especially during a global crisis. Many will be experiencing trauma, loss, and depression as a result of the pandemic, who may not have experienced any significant mental health issues before.
Do you suffer with anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem? Share your experience, and let people know what helped you. You can read about my self-care journey, and how I improved my mental health as examples.
10. Your Skincare Routine.
Have you sorted out an at-home spa? Are you a pro at doing your nails and hair at home? Let the world know your tips!
You don’t need to purchase any new products: write about your favourites, or products that didn’t work well for you.
11. Healthy Food & Easy Meals To Make.
Personally, I’ve been trying out lots of new recipes during the past month or so, and I’m looking forward to trying more!
I’ve learned new cooking skills, and how to re-create some of my restaurant favourites at home. If you’ve done the same, why not write about it?
12. Home Organisation & Storage Tips.
Many of us are sorting out our homes at the moment, myself included.
Organisation and storage tips for keeping your home tidy are good lifestyle topics to write about because they’re ‘evergreen’ content, meaning that they’ll always be useful and relevant.
Do you live in rented or student accommodation? Share how you personalise your living space, or budget-friendly decorating tips!
Have you upcycled any furniture, or created an art wall?
If you’re brave, make a room tour video!
14. Video Games.
Animal Crossing New Horizons is very popular at the moment! Share a tour of your island or your house, or if you don’t play Animal Crossing, write about your favourite video games. The Sims 4 is another popular game you could write about if you play it!
Here are my top Nintendo Switch games for mindfulness.
15. Started a new hobby?
Have you discovered any new music recently? Share your favourite albums, your workout playlist, or a chilled-out playlist for reading and relaxing!
16. Share your old travel photography for a bit of escapism.
I recently decided to sort out some photos from my trip to Edinburgh last November, and uploaded them to my blog as a photo diary.
Although we cannot travel at the moment, people are looking for travel inspiration for future trips, and a little escape from at-home life.
17. Do you have a scrapbook or a bullet journal?
Share a peek inside or make a flip-through video!
These are very popular on Pinterest, alongside writing and art journals.
Create some journalling prompts, or bullet journal ideas!
18. Studying Advice!
University and College students are learning online and writing their essays at home instead of the library.
Productivity & studying tips are very useful, and another evergreen topic.
Do you budget? Have any tips for saving money?
Have you started a side hustle to make a bit of extra money online?
Due to the current economic situation, and the pandemic, managing finances is increasingly important. If you have any advice, I’m sure your readers will appreciate it.
20. Write about your hopes, dreams and goals for the future.
Get more personal with your audience, and understand yourself a bit better along the way. Free writing is a great way to do this!
If you have a specific list of goals or a vision board, write about that! I recently shared my Dream Home Vision Board, and had so much fun creating it.
I hope these suggestions have inspired you to write some blog posts during quarantine, or start your own blog if you haven’t already!
Let me know what you’ve been writing about during this time, and how you’re doing during this time.
