Twice a month (if not more) I speak with REALTORS® at local boards and MLSs about using social media networks effectively - one major question I get is "WHAT DO I BLOG ABOUT!". So I've complied a quick list for you. My suggestion would be to export this list into a word doc. and create sub categories under each applicable topic.What I mean by that:

Topic (from below) - Land Lord or Tenant Issues

Sub categories for multiple blog posts: Process of Approving a Tenant (credit check etc.), What Signing a Lease Entails, Explain Broker Fees
