The blog post ideas I’m sending out each month may be geared toward businesses that blog, but other types of bloggers are taking advantage, too. Check out the Urban Moo Cow’s Wordle and the Time-Lapse Blog’s Jargon Dictionary to see what I mean.
And, hey, if you decide to use one of these ideas on your blog, tell me about it. I’ll link to you in an upcoming blog post.
Enough of the chit chat. Let’s get to it! Here are your 30 blog post ideas for April.

BONUS TIP FROM CATHY STUCKER!
“Do you ever make a giant batch of your favorite casserole to freeze for future meals? I do the same thing with blog posts! When I get in the “writing zone” I turn out several posts very quickly and save them as drafts. Those saved posts are a wonderful resource for the times when I struggle to come up with a great post idea or I don’t have time to write. Just open one up, review it to make sure there are no updates or corrections needed, and publish. It is as easy as grabbing a pre-made dish out of the freezer for a quick meal!”

Thou shall not neglect blogging.
Yesterday I wrote about three small business blogs that rock at blogging. Before I found these blogs to showcase I visited dozens of others that simply stunk. They stunk because they had not been updated in months…or longer. I wondered if the mom and pop shops were still doing business!
If you blog, do it often. Make it a goal to blog every month AT A MINIMUM. (more…)
