Like journaling or any other spiritual/pastoral practice, consistent blog posting can be difficult.  There are some general guidelines for avoiding posting block like Rohit’s post  How to find time to blog (when it is not your day job) or Maartje’s post How to kill writer’s block in 10 easy steps, but sometimes it is just a lack of ideas.

Problem solved, at least as much I as believe is problem-solving.

While doing some blog wandering I stumbled upon I Help You Blog’s post 101 Great Posting Ideas that Will Make Your Blog Sizzle so between that list, Seth Godin’s snarky post, How to get traffic to your blog and my list below, you have gotta be able to find something.

LINK LOVE OFFER – see the end of this post. 

So here are 101 post ideas that would be good for pastors, church leaders, random church yahoos, etc.  These are both general and specific and, of course, are extremely contextual.  Again if you find something and want some link love, let me know.
