How to come up with content ideas for your blog

Last year around December time I had a mini freak out moment when I realized I hadn’t travelled overseas for  two years. I’m a travel blogger who isn’t going to exotic destinations.

I learnt so much about Vienna on my trip which only allowed me to stay for one day. There are Baroque styled buildings and castles which house exquisite artworks in both graphic and musical form.
