Hello 2023! The start of a New Year is always such a wonderful time. It’s a fresh start. A clean slate. A new beginning for January blog post ideas and inspiration is here for the taking.
For some of us, we already set our personal and professional goals for the year with a plan and strategy on how we’re going to achieve them.
But if you haven’t, no worries! Use this month to self-reflect and take a look at where you are and where you want to be by the end of this year. Have a vision, make a plan, and set some big goals. YOU are the only thing between you and your dreams.
For example, content planning is a popular goal for many people. Being a few weeks (or even a few months) ahead of the game when it comes to drafting up blog posts and social media posts, will help keep you engaged with your online audiences throughout the year.
Aside from writing about the usual New Year’s resolutions (which can be an area that’s quite over saturated), I’ve listed some other food and nutrition related topics to tie back to your niche for your ideal client.
Before we get into these 15 content ideas, I’d like to highlight some other ways you can engage with your audience during the month of January on your social accounts.

Ask them “on a scale of 1-10″ questions.
Post This or That images.
Post an A/B/C/D image.

Ask them to “caption this photo” in a post.
Ask them to “fill-in-the-blank” with a statement.
Try yes or no questions.

Tell them to tag someone they know.
Create savable content that they’ll want to refer back to later.
