55 Ideas for Summer Blog Posts


It seems I have summer on the brain these days. That is probably because this Friday is the last day of school for my kids. We have also had some crazy hot weather the past few days. It’s been very summer-like. I’m talking 90+ degrees. Ugh! Technically, summer won’t start for another month, but it’s time to start planning for it.

If you’re a blogger like me, planning for summer also means planning your summer blog posts. I started this list for myself, but have added to it and thought it would be nice to share it with everyone. I can’t guarantee you’ll see something on each of these this summer, but I will be writing about some of it.
