Types of Blog Posts: The Almost A to Z List!

A few weeks ago I put together a roundup post of blog post ideas. This list is similar but more generic, listing the various types of posts that you can write. This list would be appropriate for writers and just about anyone else who blogs and is looking for inspiration.

Some of these may overlap but I had fun trying to come up with a type of blog post for every letter in the alphabet and I almost succeeded!
