50 Goth Blog Post Prompts

Bloggers Block. It's a problem, and it's especially a problem when most of the lists of post ideas out there online aren't helpful to those of us with spookier blogs. So, I've been accumulating a list of 50 Goth Blog Post Prompts to be used by anyone who wants them. (This list isn't meant as one of those post memes, so don't feel pressured to do all of them, although that's not to say that you couldn't do all of these if you wanted to.)


  1. Post some pictures of a style you might wear if you didn't dress in Goth fashion, and talk about what attracts you to this style. 
  2. Do "a day in the life" of you. Take lots of pictures.
  3. What has been your biggest hurdle to overcome on being a Goth? Talk about who or what have made being a Goth difficult for you. 
  4. Post a link to something you're saving up for. Threaten people so that they don't go buying it before you can.
  5. Write some goals for the coming year, blog or wardrobe or life related. Or, if you've done that, write about how they're coming along.
  6. Post some music you've been listening to lately, or make a playlist.
  7. Plan a meet up. You don't actually have to host it, but write about what you'd like to do if you could. Where would you go? How many people? What would you do?
  8. Plan a photo shoot. Who would model (you?) and what would the theme be? The clothes?
  9. How do you blog? Write a post on how post on your blog posts come about. What tools do you use, where do you find your visuals, how do you come up with your ideas?
  10. Ask for help with inspiration or problem-solving your in-progress DIY projects.
  11. How do you store your clothes, jewelry, and accessories? Does it work for you? Are you looking to make a change?
  12. Write about why you blog, and what it has done for you so far.
  13. Feature some other bloggers. What posts are you loving? Who is especially fabulous this week
  14. Confess: what stereotypically Goth things do you not like?
  15. Make some themed Polyvore sets, or sets based on life events. (What would you wear to go on vacation in Maui? What do you want to wear to your wedding? What would you wear to a job interview?)
  16. Give Babybats some advice you wish you'd had.
  17. "This Day in Goth History."
  18. Post about the little things in your life that you've "Gothed up."
  19. Make a Goth Bucket List. What Goth-related things do you want to do or see with your life?
  20. Write about the interests that seem to "clash" with being a Goth, and how they do or don't.
  21. What's in your DIY "to-do" pile? Or, what DIY materials have you still not found a purpose for?
  22. Name the stupidest piece of advice anyone has given to you about being a Goth. Counter it with some good ones.
  23. Post about your Goth-related collections. What are some things you want to add to it? Which are your favorites?
  24. List some of your Goth Idols. Who are they and why do they inspire you?
  25. Post your everyday make up routine, with product names.
  26. Do a "Lately" post of what you've been posting on other websites, like Pinterest, Goodreads, Twitter, or Tumblr.
  27. Dedicate an entire post to your favorite Goth song. Post a link to it, transcribe the lyrics, or talk about why you like it so much.
  28. Share plans for Halloween or another holiday.
  29. Take a stance: what makes someone a Goth? 
  30. Write about an article of clothing you've been wearing a lot lately. Post pictures.
  31. Review an old DIY you did. Is it still holding out? What, if anything, would you change if you were to do it again?
  32. If you're feeling creative, write some haikus (5-7-5 optional) about Goth things and share them. Bonus points for funny ones.
  33. Post some pictures of you (or your room, or your hobbies, etc.) at your least-Gothy. 
  34. Make a list of some things that, while they aren't Goth, you associate with the Goth subculture.
  35. Write a review of a particularly good book you've read recently, album you've bought, or movie you've seen. Or tear apart a bad one. 
  36. Take fashion inspiration from something you love (it can be as big as a historical period or small as a photograph you found on deviantArt.) Post about it. Include pictures and links.
  37. Talk about a political issue, make a case for why Goths should care.
  38. What are some of the things you consider essential for Goths to own?
  39. Post some recent reader mail or comments that have made you smile, and say thank you.
  40. List some blog topics you'd like other bloggers to post about. What issues do you want their opinions on?
  41. Talk about what kind of Goth-related Business you'd own if you could. Fashion, music, wedding planning? What would you do?
  42. Post a haul of things you've bought lately, or if you've made a haul lately show the items in action. 
  43. Write a bunch of funny responses to common Goth cat-calls. 
  44. Confess: What trends in Goth do you not like?
  45. List several silly Goth-related pet names, bonus if they're the actual names of your pets. 
  46. Write an open letter to someone, or groups of someones. It can be funny or serious, sweet or scathing.
  47. What traits in other Goths do you admire?
  48. Do you remember the first Goth song or band that you listened to? Did you like it? (Confession: I hated Siouxsie and the Banshees when I first heard them...oops...)
  49. Post items of historical clothing or jewelry that you wish you owned.
  50. Describe a Goth-related website or blog that you wish existed. What is it, what features would it have. Is there anything out there that is close, and if so why isn't it right?

Hope you enjoy! Do you guys have anything else to add to the list? What do you guys like to read?

  2. Great post! I'm sure this will be helpful to a lot of us spooky bloggers out there. :) It really inspired me to do my own list of blog ideas actually! Being a gothic makeup blogger makes it even more difficult to find inspiration, so I guess it's a good thing to write any ideas down this way. :D Thanks a lot for sharing this and have a lovely day!
