You've tried different options around your city. Joining an improv team, going to a painting class, and even trying stand up, but nothing seems to get your creative juices flowing.
You like to write. You want to share. So why not start a fun website?
Creating a website is an easy and painless way to get out of your creative funk. Here are ten fun, exciting, and creative website ideas to motivate you to get out of this uninspired pit.
10 Website Ideas for the Creative Mind
#10: Create an Online Persona
People love to read blogs. People especially love to read blogs written by engaging people who lead exciting lives. If you think you’re life is a little too dull to capture anyone's attention online then create an online persona and write from their point of view.
Create a character you find interesting. For example, if you tend to be a homebody, create a person who is an extrovert and likes to seek adventure. You create the stories, so they can go as far as you want them to go. This is a great way to work on your creative writing skills and maybe even translate your writings into a book.
#9: Fashion Blog
Are you a fashionista? If so, write about your love of fashion! Write about your overwhelming knowledge of fashion and the trends you see and love. Upload pictures of your style and share where you bought each piece of clothing.
For an added bit of creativity, tailor your fashion blog to a specific market. For example, if you are a thrift store warrior, create a blog that focuses on thrift store finds. Or if you tend to be a more high-end shopper, create a blog focused on the finer things in life.
#8 How-to Guide Website
We can all agree that sometimes, in life, we need a little help. If you are a person, who likes to help others than a how-to guide website would be a great idea. A how-to guide website offers step by step guides from everything to cooking, budgeting, cleaning, and applying for jobs.
Creating a how-to guide gives you the opportunity to share your wealth of knowledge. If you are an expert on building furniture, create a how-to guide on easy to make furniture. Upload tutorials that present every step in creating your masterpiece.
Not only do you gain a creative outlet, but you also gain a new piece of furniture for your home. You can even monetize this website by creating custom-made pieces.
Share your expertise with the world by creating a website dedicated to easy, affordable tips for anyone to follow.
#7: Reports of the Supernatural
Do you like real-life ghost stories? If so, create a website that collects real-life supernatural stories. Find ghost-stories from around the web and share them on your site. Discuss your thoughts on the story and whether or not you believe the story is true or not.
Contact parapsychologists and interview them about their dealings with the supernatural. Share their findings on your website.
If you like adventure, try to investigate local haunted areas. Bring a few friends and some video equipment and check out the location. Not only will this get you off your couch, but it will also give you a little excitement in life.
#6: All the Trivia
Do your friends call you a walking font of trivia knowledge? If so, creating a trivia website might be an excellent solution for your creative woes.

Not only will you get to share your love for scary movies, but you also get to share all the information that runs rampant in your head on a daily basis.
If you like to do bar-trivia nights, create a website to help teams study up for their tournaments. You can connect with local bars in the area to create a hub for all of their trivia needs.
#5 Just the Facts
If you are tired of all the constant misinformation floating around the internet, create a website dedicated to debunking the myths. Research different posts from around the web and find out if what they are saying is real or fabricated. Once you find the truth, share it on your website.
Create forums on the website for others to present their arguments. Once their cases are uploaded, research to find out if what they are saying is based on reality.
If you are tired of your friends sharing conspiracy theories, create a website to invalidate their false accusations. Or if you are tired of seeing people share incorrect political information on social media sites, focus your website on debunking those lies.
Whatever you do, focus your website on uncovering the truth.
#4 Movie Reviews
Are you a cinephile? Do you always watch and talk about movies?
You won't even have to leave the comfort of your couch.
You can even write for a more niche market and review movies from a particular decade and genre. For example, if you like 70s Italian horror films, your website can focus on discussions of those films.
The beautiful thing is the topic is entirely up to you. Write about what you like.
#3 Start an Online Advice Website
Do you find that people tend to come to you for advice? Why not start an online advice website? Not only are you doing something creative, but you are also helping people.
You can create the site around your expertise.
For example, if you tend to give excellent work advice, create a website helping people find employment. Or if you like to give relationship advice, make a site focused on helping with relationship issues.
Tailor the website to your experiences and authority. Be open and honest with your feedback and let your one motivation be to help others.
#2 Create a Healthy Living Guide
With so many unhealthy life choices out there today, the public needs a little guidance. Why not create a website dedicated to healthy living? The site can include tips and personal stories about your path to an overall healthier life.
Include recipes of your favorite health-conscious dishes and show pictures of the finished product. Outline every ingredient and give your readers tips on where to find the best locally grown organic food sources. You can also partner with local health food stores and do reviews of some of their products.
Incorporate easy to follow exercise plans as well. You can upload pictures and videos of the exercises to show your readers better how to do each one.
Creating a clean-living guide not only helps you stay focused on a healthy lifestyle but assisting others to do the same.
