I hope all you beautiful people had a lovely Easter holiday! Spring is about to be happening in full force, I can feel it in my bones (and my sinuses)! I’m so excited to be in a new month, I can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by already. The next two month on the blog and on my Instagram are going to be really exciting! I’ve got some new partnerships coming up and lots to write about and recount, so I hope you’re ready! Let’s talk about some blog business and National Days in April!
New month’s always means one thing for me as a blogger: blog planning. At the end of each month, I gear up and start coming up with content for BTF and my Instagram for the upcoming month. Some people are shocked when I tell them that I try to plan my blog posts out a month in advance, but that’s just how I have to roll for me! I’m sure fellow content creators can relate, but if I don’t have ideas down and planned out in advance, I won’t produce at all. Coming up with ideas for blog posts and Insta posts/stories is a lot harder than I think people understand!
What’s one way I try to come up with monthly content? Looking up National Days for the upcoming month! Some months are easier than others, because they have lots of well-known holidays throughout their 30-31 days, but every month has some lesser known “National Days” in there too! You know, like the 40 different “National Daughter Days” or “National Sibling Days” you see all over Facebook, but much more fun and interesting!
If you’re looking for a starting point for some content ideas or you’re just interested in quirky holidays, here are a handful of National Days in April that I found exciting, relevant, and fun!
