No April Blogging Topics This Month? April Fools!

Of course we have blogging topics to share with you for the month of April! Have we Insurance Bloggers ever let you down before? This month, we have 10 new topics for you to tackle. Keeping up with your blogging strategy is important for a couple reasons:
  1. It keeps content fresh on your website.
  2. It will keep readers coming back for more!
If next month begins to bring April showers, do not feel too bad. Turn a rainy day into a blogging day! You can start with these topics:
#1: April Fools is coming quickly! Why not come up with a few crazy April Fool pranks and post them?
#2: The second week of April is National Garden Week! Have fun with a gardening post, with tips, tricks and advice. A fun post will always improve your blog.
#3: April is Stress Awareness Month. You can write up a post about the harmful health effects of too much stress, provide tips on how to lower stress, etc. This can easily be linked to health or even life insurance.
#4: Does your agency sell insurance for watercrafts, RVs, motorcycles, ATVs and the likes? Now is a great time to post about safety, state regulations and other tips and advice. You should also remind readers to update their policy (or purchase one!) Spring toys are coming out to play sooner than later!
#5: Spring cleaning, anyone? There is a lot that one could write about in terms of spring cleaning, from organizational tips to throwing a successful yard sale. If you want to focus more on insurance for this, you can incorporate liability into a yard sale post or you could remind homeowners to update their home inventory lists as they clean.
#6: April 6th is National Drowsy Driver Awareness Day – great for auto insurance posts. This is an alarming issue out on the road!
#7: The IRS Tax filing deadline is April 15, 2013. You may want to remind your readers a little early and even offer a few money-saving tips and tricks.
#8: Looking for a fun, recipe post? It’s National Pecan Month. I think you know where we are going with this!
#9: Earth Day is Monday, April 22. Promote local events, efforts and tips on your blog.
#10: Many motorcyclists may be dusting off their bikes for spring weather ahead. Now would be a good time to post about motorcycle safety, rules and regulations, local courses, local routes, etc. Motorcycle insurance for riders is the car insurance for drivers – necessary!
