“Mark It on Your Calendar”: November Blog Topics Ideas for Attorneys
The fall is in full swing and that means there is plenty of material for your law firm blogging.
Not only is November "Child Safety Protection Month" and "National Adoption Awareness Month," but there are popular seasonal themes you can anticipate and translate into the type of blog material that will position you as a thought leader in the areas of law you practice.
On an ongoing basis we'll update you on upcoming events to help you plan content for your legal marketing, public relations, blogging and social media calendar.
To begin, let's look at how recent severe weather has property owners rethinking the way unforeseen events can impact their families, communities and businesses.
Hurricane Season (June 1 to Nov. 30)
- Hurricane Sandy reminded us that not only coastal communities but even inland areas can be ravaged by devastating hurricanes. Everyone in the United States is at risk of being hit by some kind of natural disaster — be it hurricane, tornado, earthquake or blizzard — and it pays to prepare for the threat before there's an imminent risk.
- Suggest that clients do a property insurance review: What constitutes sufficient insurance coverage and how do you know if you have good coverage? What usually is and is not covered by property insurance? How do you file a claim?
- Home inventories: What are they? Why are they important? What tips can you offer for creating a home inventory and storing a home inventory?
- Tax issues: What natural disaster–related expenses are deductible? When do tax-related filing deadlines get extended?
- Price gouging: What is it? What steps can consumers take if they think they've been a victim? How can business owners avoid allegations of price gouging?
Drunk Driving (Thanksgiving through New Year's)
- The period between Thanksgiving and New Year's is marked by many social occasions that often involve alcohol, including dinners, holiday parties and the like.
- Clients need to know their limits-and their state's DUI laws. Can clients legally refuse a breathalyzer test? Do teens and drivers holding commercial licenses face stiffer penalties if they are found guilty of drunk driving?
- A drunk-driving conviction can have consequences in many parts of a person's life, including on the job, the cost and availability of automobile insurance and more.
