Creating a content calendar for blogging and social media posts

Keeping your blog up to date can be a difficult task.

You need to know what is going on around the world and you should incorporate holidays into your planning.

Marketing during holiday times needs to be started as soon as possible.

We’ve been looking at ways you can create content easily and quickly.

On Time and Date we found a whole list of public holidays from all over the world.

You can choose which country you are interested in, too.

Here are the lists for the US, Australia, the UK and China.

We also discovered that if you select the information –

Add your own details

Then you can add your own columns such as, what topics you are going to write about, how and we would suggest you save the url of each post.

This means that in 12 months’ time you can check back to see what you did and re-purpose the content if needs be.

Or, you can create amazing, compelling content each year.

As well, the clever people at Time and Date have hyperlinked each of the holidays. When clicked these take you to a page with a whole lot of information about that day.

The information on this site is invaluable of all bloggers. We highly recommend you check it out.

It is such a valuable resource which will help bloggers and content marketers to get control of the content calendars and really prepare their holiday marketing schedules.
