45 Ideas to Help You Write a Blog

Part of any Search Engine Optimization (SEO) effort begins with being a resource for your clients. It begins with content that your company or you provides and keeps providing on a regular basis. A blog post does not have to be big, long article full of snappy thoughts, witty banter, or hours worth of research. You can certainly do write with that style and if you can, good on you! I know I can’t. But that doesn’t mean your blog post can’t be interesting and insightful to your customers.

You can be the CEO, the marketing director, or the solo entrepreneur. You don’t have to be a blogger by trade.

I am often asked, “Christina, what would or should I blog about?” Well, to begin, don’t be afraid of writing or fear that you’ll not have ideas and topics.  You’d be surprised how they can pop in your head while driving, filing papers, talking with a client, reading a magazine, or attending a seminar. Just remember to jot the idea down (in Evernote if you are like me) to keep track of these great ideas.

So to help you move things along, I’ve complied 45 topics that might help spark your educator or storytelling mind. If you have any of your own ideas, share you it by leaving a comment!
