Are you afraid to look at the date of your most recent blog post? Was it written within the last week? The last year? The last presidency? We all know how important blogging is. It’s the best way to grow an online audience. But blogging is one of the easiest tasks to put off, ignore, or neglect. That’s because blogging feels like a lot of work. It feels like your 8th grade English teacher has come back to haunt you with a two-page writing assignment–due every Friday for the rest of your life.

Aaaaaaaaaaaa . . . .

But blogging doesn’t have to be hard, doesn’t have to take much time or work, and should rarely ever fill up two pages (maybe if it’s double-spaced with plenty of large type).

Here are 10 blog post ideas that are so quick and easy you could finish them on a bar napkin during a commercial break.
