Back to School Blog Post Ideas for Christian Bloggers
With back to school (B2S) season comes so many opportunities to minister to others and to truly help our readers with valuable content. While you may think that B2S topics are only about school clothes, backpacks and packing lunches, there are some really great Christian topics that you can also write about (that people are actually searching for). In the next couple of sections, I’m going to list some specific keyword phrases (that have search volume) that include straight forward B2S topics, as well as B2S topics that offer Biblical inspiration and encouragement.
As you go through these lists, it is important to remember that you should be tailoring these to your blog audience. If you don’t normally write about kid topics, then opt, instead, for the more faith-based ones. Also, be sure to do further keyword research on any of these that you choose to possibly find other topics to write about – as well as to find some good additional keywords to use in the post.
Also, don’t discount writing a specific blog post because you can’t narrow down the best keyword for Google searches. The back to school season is a high-traffic topic on Pinterest. As long as you create really great graphics, you will get a lot of traffic from Pinterest before Google even knows about the post!
How to Use These Blog Post Ideas
The back to school blog post ideas listed here are mostly the main ones for a given topic. When you type one of them into the Google search box, you’ll get a dropdown showing other (longer) variations of the phrase. While you can write your post for the specific ones listed, you may have better results by choosing a longer-tail keyword for it (from the dropdown). This can also enable you to write about a topic multiple times (more than one post) but in a different way.
Be sure that you also include additional related keywords throughout the post and format your post with SEO in mind. If you aren’t sure how to do that, you can read Formatting Your Christian Blog Posts for SEO.
While this topic does have significant search volume (for Google), you will get the most immediate results from Pinterest – you know, because Moms attached to Pinterest during this time of year! Be sure to get creative with your wording on the pinnable images and always create multiple pins for each post (all different) to increase visibility.
Round-Up Posts Do Really Well!
Even if you don’t do or know much about some of these things, you can still benefit tremendously (from a traffic perspective) from these topics by creating roundup posts linking to other bloggers who do write about them (and who will provide great graphics). For these, you’ll want to ensure you have actual content where you can include all of the main and related keywords.
To find the content to link to, simply reach out to other bloggers that you follow that write about your topic. If you happen to have, let’s say, favorite recipes or hacks, you can link to their posts. As long as you are properly giving credit (by linking directly to the post), you don’t necessarily need to have permission from the post author. This is helping them by sending traffic to their website. Make sure these links are “follow” (don’t make them “no follow”).

These would be most appropriate for Christian mom bloggers that write about all topics related to their children.

Get Creative, Provide Value, Gain Readers!
As you can see, there are so many back to school blog post ideas that Christian bloggers can add to their content plan. It is important to always write as it relates to your particular audience and don’t write on these topics just for the sake of writing them. If you don’t normally publish content related to kids’ topics, but you do publish encouraging posts listing verses of Scripture, then choosing the ones from the “faith” list would be more appropriate.
There are so many different seasons throughout the year (not just the Christian-based ones) that can be great opportunities to provide value and get more traffic to your site. If you are a Christian blogger that plans to monetize, the more traffic you have, the quicker you can apply for ad networks!
