4 Summer-Inspired Blog Post Ideas

Summer Blogging IdeasYou might not think it will ever happen to you, but most blog writers for hire live in fear of the dreaded dry spell. When you have to come up with interesting blog topics within your niche every week, sometimes your mind won’t cooperate. You need a new source of inspiration. Lucky for you, summer is full of interesting subjects that you can manipulate to fit any blog topic imaginable. When you just can’t come up with one more interesting title about retail management or container gardening, look to summer for unique twists on your niche topic.

Holidays

Look for a detailed listing of holidays and celebrations by month, and tie one of the days or weeks to your particular niche. Did you know that July is Cell Phone Courtesy Month or that National Relaxation Day is August 15? Write a blog post about appropriate cell phone usage in the work place, or turning a container garden into an oasis. Come up with a connection to your niche for every holiday on the list and you’ll have blog topics for years.

Life Lessons

We’re familiar with the books about the lessons we all learned in kindergarten, but early school classes aren’t the only place that teach us important rules. Take any one of a variety of common summer activities and share the life lessons you learned from it that relate to your niche. Try Six Things Baseball Taught Me About Hiring Summer Help, or Five Container Gardening Lessons from Our Founding Fathers for a July 4th tie-in. From summer heat to sidewalk games, summer provides an almost endless list of tie-in lessons to blog about.

Change

Of all the seasons, summer produces the most change in people’s lives. Children are on summer break from school, the air conditioner has to be turned on, we plan our summer vacations and we even wear brighter and lighter clothes. What changes are happening in your niche? No industry is static; there is always change happening, even if it’s small and hard to spot. Look for refreshing new changes in your niche topic and highlight them as newsworthy summer subjects.

Summer Blockbusters

Summer is the time when movie studios release their big blockbuster movies. Studio executives know that people love to pack cool movie theaters on hot summer nights, so they create the biggest and most exciting brain candy movies every summer. Be it monsters, zombies, war pictures or zany comedies, you’re guaranteed a giant list of new movies that everyone’s talking about. Tie one of your niche topics to a blockbuster movie for instant recognition.

Coming up with a new blog post topic every week is a strain on any writer, no matter how much they may love their topic. Whenever you’re struggling to find a new way to look at the same old subject, get away from the keyboard and take a look at the world around you. You may find enough inspiration to keep you going for months.
