I know it’s not quite March yet, but now will be the time that you’ll be planning out your month. At least, you’ll plan out some ideas in pencil, right? That’s what I spent the weekend doing – actually, I planned in pencil all the way to the end of June!
Sometimes coming up with blog post ideas is hard. You know what your readers want from you but now you’re stuck on what to actually write. You get this white page syndrome that you need to fix.
Well, it’s time to find some motivation. Here are 31 blog post ideas for March 2017. We’ll look at some of the holiday events coming up and just general ideas to get you going.
March Blog Post Ideas
- Take a look at the most popular search term within your niche. You can use Google’s Keyword Tool for this or sign up for software like Jaaxy. Write a blog post about that keyword, keeping it relevant to your audience.
- Create a letter for mom – March is the month for the United Kingdom. If you’re not close to your mom for whatever reason, why not write a letter to yourself as a mom in the future? Or you can write a letter to the mom that you wish you had. Share your journey into your business and your goal for 5 years in the future.
- Make a Wordle. This is so fun to do and will take you minutes. Post it instead of a blog post. Sometimes people just want something to look at. This is also a great social media marketing tool.
- Do a Facebook Live and add it to your blog. Talk about yourself and your journey or about something within your niche. You can then download the video and add it to YouTube or I think there’s a way to pop it straight into a blog post from Facebook. Just add a short introduction and a brief overview about what you talk about.
- Write a review about a recent book you’ve read that will be interesting to your readers. This is best when it’s a non-fiction book that will work towards your reader’s reasons for being on your blog.
- Share the big mistake that you made when you started your blog. This is your chance to be honest with your readers and share how you overcame the mistake.
- Tell your readers about the most common reasons people say they don’t take you up on an offer or product that you share with them. It may open their eyes to excuses that we commonly make.
That’s your first week of March over and done with. This would be a good time to do a round up post of what people have learned from you with your blog post ideas for March so far. Yes, this will count as a blog post, so that’s Day 8 out of the way!

- Tell people why they should subscribe to your newsletter. Give them clear reasons and then don’t forget to include the call to action to subscribe.
- Pick a trending topic from Twitter or Facebook that is in your niche. Spend the time creating a piece around that topic and get it shared while the topic is still hot.
