Social Media & Blog Content Ideas | January 2017

Whether you're a blogger or a small business owner, it's always a good idea to plan ahead. I like to plan key blog posts in advance and this list of events in January is a fantastic base for planning social media and content for your blog or business.

Social Media & Content Ideas for your business or blog | January 2017

I advise sitting down for 30 minutes and slotting in some social media activity around these events. You can plan weeks in advance and then you're done.

It's a nice way to get creative too. Do you rely on local customers/readers? You could ask your Facebook followers where serves the best non-alcoholic cocktail as part of Dry January or how about asking for recommendations for the best Chinese restaurant or recipes in time for Chinese New Year?

As part of Blue Monday you could upload a quick video of you doing something silly to put a smile on your followers faces or perhaps you will share your favourite Winnie the Pooh quotes on Winnie the Pooh day? Here are some key dates from which you can base your January Content around:

Throughout the month

  • Dry January
  • Veganuary
  • Goals and Resolutions
  • 2016 Review

Special Dates

  • 3 January | Festival of Sleep Day
  • 4 January | World Braille Day
  • 9 - 15 January | National Obesity Awareness Week
  • 16 January | Blue Monday
  • 16 January | Martin Luther King Day
  • 18 January | Winnie the Pooh Day
  • 25 January | Burns Night
  • 28 January | Chinese New Year (Red Fire Chicken Year)
