1 – November is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, American Diabetes Month, Diabetic Eye Disease Month, National Epilepsy Month, National Healthy Skin Month, National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, National Marrow Awareness Month, and Movember. Talk about why one (or more) of these health issues matter.
2 – You’re only a day late to #NaNoWriMo. Why don’t you start writing the book you’ve been thinking about and use your blog to workshop a few pieces.
3 – Daylight Savings ends in November. Do you think there should be daylight savings? How does the time change impact you?
4 – Look up a patent on Google Patents for something that could intrigue your readers. For example, I’d like to know more about how brakes on a roller skate work.
Bonus Tip from Matthew Titus
“Be sure you have analytics set up and are collecting data about your site’s visits. Traffic sources by type, referrer, and even what pages visitors exit your site from can help you better determine what content to write, and how to organize your navigation and/or pages.”

Bonus Blogging Tip from Ilise Benum
“I often find blog-worthy material in the LinkedIn discussion groups I participate in. Whether I initiate the discussion or not, I choose a question I know is relevant to my prospects, summarize a few useful answers (and get permission from those who posted them), then wrap it all up into a blog post with my own perspective woven in.”

This month I’m excited to have a bonus tip from CRO copywriter Joanna Wiebe of Copy Hackers. If you have not read the Copy Hackers blog, you’re missing out. Truly.
Now that that’s out of the way let’s get to those daily blog post ideas for September. Fall is here, and it’s time to school your blog.
1 – Notice the way I used the word “school” in the sentence above as a verb. That’s not something your English teacher would approve of, but it sure is fun to use slang. Take a trip over to Urban Dictionary and come up with blog post ideas based on slang terms (that are not totally unprofessional).
2 – September 2nd is Labor Day in the United States. Take a break from writing. Post a picture instead.
BONUS BLOGGING TIP!
“Keep an eye on your analytics. When you’re creating content, it’s easy to let yourself write about any old topic and then go see what keyword phrase to associate with it, but we’ve found a reliable way to select topics that people will care about is to go into Google Analytics and see which of our posts are bringing in the most traffic. For example, we get TONS of visitors to our old post on writing App Store descriptions, so we’re currently interviewing app creators for a new post on promoting your app.” — Joanna Wiebe of Copy Hackers

Yes, I called you lazy. Rude, I know, but I don’t mean it that way. You’re running a business. You have a life! It’s only normal that you’d let your blog sit idle from time to time.
Ideally, though, you wouldn’t ignore your blog. Ideally, you’d find some easy content to at least keep things going. A reguarly updated blog proves to your customers that you are open for business. It also helps to increase your search engine traffic, even if it’s only little bits of new traffic at a time.
Next time you’re tempted to let your blog sit idle, don’t. Instead, check out and use some of these free and easy blog content ideas. Read More »

Amy Schmittauer (pictured here) of Savvy Sexy Social and Vlog Boss Studios looks at the calendar to get her blog post ideas. Here’s what she has to say:
“I’m often inspired by my calendar. With seasons, holidays, current events, conferences, or just anything, I can usually come up with a new piece of content that connects with everyday life. Just writing down those keywords will help me come up with a way to tie my content to relateable subjects.”
