Content Planning Calendar | September

I’m definitely a planner when it comes to my content. One of the things I like to do each month is look up what holidays or events are coming up for ideas, jot them down on a calendar and keep that over my desk.

Even if I don’t do something directly related to what’s going on that month it really helps me come up with content ideas and planning on a calendar keeps me consistent.
