March Blogging Prompts

Spring into March with fabulous blog posts, designed to help your audience hop into the new season

Here are some ideas to get you started.

Spring Cleaning: One of the best things about spring is that you get a fresh, clean start. Help your readers take a fresh angle on a project or offer ideas to help them clean up their home or workspace.

March Madness: Are you a basketball fan? Do you love sports analogies about teamwork? Perhaps you're a food writer, who talks about social restaurant venues. You can also go full-on creative and craft a unique bracket, having nothing to do with sports. These are a few angles for writing about March Madness. 

Pi Day is March 14: Is it a food holiday? A math holiday? Maybe it's both. If you blog in either of those categories, make sure to acknowledge it.

St. Patrick's Day is March 17: Whether you celebrate the luck on the Irish or just love the color green, think of a unique way to incorporate one or the other into a March blog post. 


March Holidays: March is Irish American Month, National Craft Month, National Nutrition Month, National Women's History Month, Red Cross Month, and Social Workers Month. National Goof Off Day is March 22, Make Your Own Holiday Day is March 26, and National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day (celebrating small business owners) is March 29. 

March Food Holidays: March is National Celery Month, National Flour Month, National Frozen Food Month, National Nutrition Month, National Noodle Month, National Peanut Month, National Sauce Month, and National Caffeine Awareness Month. American Chocolate Week is the third week of the month.

Bonus: Spring Break is coming. Fiction writers, have some fun and send your characters out on a wild vacay. It'll be lots of fun for you and your characters, and will open up tons of opportunities.

Thanks! I love "fake" holidays! They give you so much to blog about!

Deb, how do you find these blogging prompts? What fun. I had no idea there were so many holidays in March!

Now, the trick is to remember these in advance so you can schedule something for them. That's what Deb is for, huh? (-:

My niche is ecology and the environment. I use a monthly calendar to record designated environmental days. Special days in March include: World Wildlife Day (March 3), International Day of Forests (March 21), World Water Day (March 22), and Earth Hour (March 28). Your post is a great reminder to develop content and resources for our readers.

I actually started looking at fun holidays years ago when I did events for Barnes & Noble... It really tied in well, when I started blogging and working in social media.

I think of these articles on blogging prompts as my own blogging prompt! :)

Debra Eckerling said...

I make a note to check "important dates" at the beginning of each month. And then share some fun/relevant ones in the monthly posts! :)

Debra Eckerling said...

Thanks, Debra! That's awesome!

Since every niche is different, it's important to look at these "holidays" with an eye towards what's most valuable for your readers!
