Let the season of the year inspire a blog topic for therapist blog challenge #8
It's summertime (at least in the U.S.)! But no matter what time of year, you can use the season as a springboard for a blog post topic.
Start by writing down words that you associate with summer (or whatever season you are reading this post). Here's my list: water, sun, relax, BBQ, celebrate, "I'm bored", keeping kids learning, camp, fruit, family gatherings, swim...
Come up with a topic based on your brainstorm list or pick on of these suggested summer topics :
- Summertime survival skills for parents
- Relaxation skills
- Curing summer boredom
- Surviving family gatherings
- Summer depression (SAD)
- How to keep your cool when irritated
- Reflections on what freedom means to you
- Body acceptance during swimsuit season
- Free summer date night ideas for couples
- Preparing kids for summer camp
Additional reminders about the 2013 blog challenge
- Write and post your blog article in the next 2 weeks. If you miss the deadline or you read this article months later, that’s OK too.
- Post a link for this blog challenge in the comment section of this blog post.
- Read, comment, and share other therapist’s articles.
- Tweet your post using hashtag #therapistblog and tag @julie_hanks so I can retweet it.
- Pin it on the challenge Pinterest Board. I’ve invited everyone who posted a comment on the initial blog challenge post as collaborators so you can pin onto the group board.
- Spread the word and invite mental health colleagues to join the challenge. Articles can be added anytime throughout the year.
- Write no more than 600 words, make it easy to read, use a conversational tone, and gear your articles toward your ideal client (not other professionals).
- The goal of a professional blog is to provide value to your website visitors, help them get to know your professional perspective, increase traffic to your private practice website, and build your practice.
