Blog Jar : Why Your Blog Needs One

Everyone needs a blog jar. It literally takes seconds to make and only costs about $5.00 – if that! I already had a jar lying around. I use jars for different things like storing my earrings/jewelry. They’re cute and easy to use. All you need to make a blog jar a success is a jar and pieces of paper. That’s it. You have a blog jar, now stuff it with ideas! I am in love with the idea of a blog jar and I have really enjoyed using it for my blog.

A blog jar is a jar full of blog post ideas. This is great for those days where you literally can’t think of anything to do (I know we’ve all been there!).  After you have your jar all you need is pieces of paper and blog ideas.

Having a blog jar will be one of the best investments you can make for your blog. It will make you a better blogger and, in turn, will help make your blog more successful. I have been using my blog jar and I am in love with it. It’s so easy to sit down, pull a slip of paper out of the jar, and write that post. I absolutely love it! Here are the reasons I came up with why a blog jar is so beneficial.

you’ll never run out of ideas

This is the best part. You get to refill the jar as you go. Think of a blog post? Write it on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. See a list of possible blog post ideas? Write down the ones that inspire you! You have no more excuses for not blogging. And it’s so easy.

keeps your blog interesting

You never know which piece of paper you’ll pull out. It keeps your blog interesting and allows you to have more variety in your posts. All good things. You want your blog to be spontaneous yet controlled, and the blog jar is the best way to do just that!




encourages you to blog consistently

Do you ever find it hard to blog because you can’t think of anything to blog? Well, of course the blog jar would help with that! When you know you will always have something to blog about it will help you be more consistent in your blogging. Which in turn, will help you become a better blogger. Consistency is important when it comes to blogging.

it inspires you

It will help keep you inspired. Since it’s so spontaneous, you’ll have to get creative whenever you do pull out a new slip of paper. I know it’s kept me on my toes.

You will be so amazed the different posts you’ll be able to write now that you have a blog jar. Plus, they’re really cute. I hope this inspires you to create your own blog jar and to blog more consistently! Have a blog post that could be added to the jar? Post it in the comments below, I’d love to hear all about it.
