Develop an Article Calendar – Part 3

Leave a comment

This is the third part of your article calendar ideas. I invite you to look for other reasons or occasions to write about. Look for new angles on old subjects or new special days or holidays to write about.

Start thinking the hot days of August, even if you’re shivering.

  • End of summer
  • School supplies
  • Women’s Small Business month
  • Away to college
  • National Immunization month
  • New, affordable school clothes
  • Happiness month

This is a short month, so get started on these September ideas.

  • Labor Day party
  • Patriot’s Day [9-11-07]
  • Cooler weather
  • Gardening tips on winterizing
  • New school
  • First bus ride/separation anxiety
  • Grandparents Day
  • Update your resume month
  • Autumn begins
  • Baby safety month
  • College savings month
  • Library card sign-up month

Plan for October ideas:

  • Columbus Day
  • Weatherize your yard
  • National Bosses Day
  • Halloween costumes
  • National breast cancer awareness month
  • National domestic violence awareness month

Pick the subjects that most interest you or you have experience with. Write in support of a cause that you believe in. This week’s posts have given us some ideas to start with and can help keep you on track and keep you writing. You won’t have to have get stuck for ideas. Have fun finding new ideas to go with these.
