Calendar Days—July 2013

Last month I continued my end of the month post listing all the crazy special days in the coming month.  You may have noticed that I'm almost a week late with this month's dates. To be totally honest, I was so deep into deadlines that I didn't realize last Thursday was the final Thursday in June. My bad!

Anyway, I usually share this info on the last Thursday of every month. I promise to try to do better with the August days. So be sure to drop by. Today I’m going to continue with the upcoming crazy and normal holidays in the month of July.

Using the calendar for blog post or even article ideas is a great way to jumpstart your creativity. It's also a fun writing prompt idea. 

Calendar days are also great conversation starters for social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
