This is the third list in a series of 12 lists offering blog post ideas for every day of the year. If you like what you see, look at what was given away in January and February.

And by the way, many of these blog post ideas might make great newsletter article ideas, e-book topic ideas, and social media posts, too. As I mention in tip #9, it’s wise to re-purpose your best content.

Time to Start Blogging. Here’s Your 31 Blog Post Idea Starters for March.

1 – Make a Wordle.

2 – March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, Hemophilia Awareness Month, March to Health Month, National MS Education and Awareness Month, National Nutrition Month, and Red Cross Month. March is also Women’s History Month. If any of these issues matter to you, write about them.

3 – What objections do you commonly hear during the sales process? Write a blog post addressing each objection.

4 – Watch a documentary. Write a movie review.


“I’m endlessly curious. I collect thoughts and ideas that might make an interesting blog post as I go about my day. I write the ideas down so I don’t forget. If I can make a connection back to marketing, which is what my brand is all about, it’s a viable topic. If it’s right for me, I can write the post in 15 minutes. If I’m struggling, I know there is no juice in the idea, so I just throw it out and pick a different one.”

5 – Visit Google Trends. Enter in a relevant key phrase and take note of the trends in search volume. You can do two things here: 1) Publish posts on the topic when there’s the most interest. 2) Find an interesting pattern/trend for your industry’s web searches and come up with an analysis.
