The Olympics – It only happens every four years, so you might as well blog about it while you can!
Summer Meals & Desserts: This is pretty much your last chance in 2012 to write about any of your favorite summer recipes!
What You’re Reading – The term ”Summer Reading” seems funny to me. Why can’t people read all year long? Anyway – it’s a good time to blog about books, since people are still looking for a “Summer Read.” Also – I just stumbled upon The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge - which is a great starter for a blog post, especially if you were a fan of the Gilmore Girls TV show!
Your View Of Summer – Take some pics and blog about what Summer looks like to you. This could be a pic of your coffee cup and computer on your porch; a trip to the local Farmer’s Market, the flowers in front of your house; whatever Summer looks like to you, take a pic and show it off.
Back To School Shopping: There’s no denying it. It’s that time of year. You can blog about your memories of back to school shopping as a kid or you can blog about the deals you’re getting right now for your own kids.
Now – you may be wondering .. How do you adapt these ideas to your blog? Especially if you have a business, and you want to promote your products and services within your blog posts?
Well, here are a few ideas:
Your View Of Summer – let’s say you make jewelry, and you have a blue necklace that reminds you of a trip you took to the beach. Show off a pic of that beach, and then blog about your day there and how the blue water inspired you to make this blue necklace, and then include a picture of the necklace and the link that will take people to buy the necklace.
Books You’re Reading – let’s say you are a Virtual Assistant … You can talk about some books you’re reading / have read / etc. Then at the end of the post, you can include a blurb stating that you are a VA and that business owners can have a lot more time on their hands to read if they hire you.
