According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Productivity is a measure of economic performance that compares the amount of goods and services produced (output) with the amount of inputs used to produce those goods and services.”

What is a Productivity Blog?

A productivity blog is a self-help blog that focuses on helping us “produce” more and helping us do that with less “input.”

For example, I'm a blogger. What can I do to publish more blog posts with a little less effort and time?

A consultant may want to sell more services without spending as much on ads.

A stay-at-home mom or dad may want tips to help them get all the household chores done more efficiently so they have more time to spend playing with their kids.

You'll find information about these and more on productivity blogs.

Productivity blogs are often seen as motivational and can be categorized as self-help or personal development. This makes perfect sense because if I'm trying to be more productive, I am working on improving myself.

Content Ideas for Productivity Blogs

In my mind, the best productivity blog is one whose content resonates with me.

But in order to resonate with a reader, your blog has to have content.

When you first started as a productivity blogger, you had lots of ideas of things you would write about. Maybe you shared your own journey to becoming more productive.

And now, twenty or fifty or two hundred blog posts later, you're staring at your monitor and can't think of a thing to write about. And that is the worst feeling in the world.

Use some of these ideas to get rid of that writer's block.
