Open-ended questions are probably one of the best ways to connect with your audience and grow your engagement. Why? Because it takes the focus off of you and turns it around onto your reader. Now it might seem a little strange to do that, after all, your blog is supposed to be about you and your experiences. Let me share a couple little secrets about blogging…
- First Secret: people don’t follow blogs, they follow people; they always have.
- Second Secret: your blog isn’t really about you; it’s about giving people the opportunity to see into your life, a keyhole into your world that you otherwise or may not show people.
When you let them in and trust that things will be okay, amazing things happen. Here are 10 open-ended questions topics/titles to help inspire your next blog post.

If you take this further and think like a child, the questions are endless. Now I’m thinking of so much question material, I need to stop and do my 15 minutes of writing. Thanks.
That’s awesome Julie! Go for it girl!!
Now this is something that gets me excited. I prefer thought provoking questions that cause people to stop and ponder even if for just a moment. Questions are wonderful ways to get people engaged, cause them to think or examine what they believe and why etc. The options are endless!
