Happy new year my friend! Bloomin heck, how is it 2023 ALREADY? I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, got nice presents, ate great food and managed to chill out and spend some quality time with friends or family. I had a nice break over Christmas but I’m super excited to get stuck into a new year of blogging.
This is a quickie for my first post of the new year, just to draw your attention to two brand new freebies that have dropped in my freebie library. I’m really keen to create more new freebies this year for my freebie library, exclusively for my mailing list subscribers but these are just two little ones to welcome us into 2023!
If you’ve been a member of my mailing list for a while, you’ll know that every now and again I change the password for my freebie library which, like every new year, is the case this year as well.
If you’re a member of my mailing list, you would have received an email this morning, making you aware of the new password so you can access the library. For anyone else keen on signing up, this is for you!
If you’re a member of my freebie library already, then head straight to the library here and input the NEW password to download the freebies! If not, sign up to my mailing list here, to receive the password to the library and access to ALL my freebies plus regular updates from me in your inbox.
Now let’s quickly show you want the new freebies are for January:
Freebie #1: January, February and March Awareness Day Content Idea Sheets
I created these awareness day sheets last year and lots of people found them helpful, so I thought some new ones for the New Year would be a good idea. I love using awareness days to create content around. Two I did last year which I really enjoyed creating were:
- National Walking Day: 8 Ways To Walk More & Enjoy it In 2022
- National Banana Day: 9 Yummy Recipes To Try
As well as getting seasonal with your content, using these specific days and weeks is a great way to come up with new and fun content ideas, such as sharing polls and questions on Instagram stories.
There are a whole bunch of different types of awareness days and weeks included in these sheets. Some are for more serious topics; others are more lighthearted and fun.
But I wanted to include a range of different things to suit different bloggers and niches and hopefully give you all some ideas of some upcoming national and intentional awareness days that you can utilize on your blog!
Wondering how to create content for awareness days? Here are some ideas:
- Create polls on Instagram stories
- Share your own experience of a specific awareness day
- Share other people’s experiences
- Share a collection of posts about the same day from other bloggers
- Start a conversation on Twitter or Facebook
- Schedule pins for a blog post about the awareness day
Freebie #2: 30-Day Personal Growth Challenge
The second freebie is a 30-Day Personal Growth Challenge and I think January is the PERFECT time to launch something like this because a new year always inspires us to want to be and do better.
This challenge consists of 30 days, each with a personal growth-related task for you to complete. Some are easier than others. Some will take a little more time.
But all of them have been selected because I feel that they can contribute towards positive self-growth and also allow you to dedicate some time for yourself every day.
Of course, you don’t have to do one every day if you can’t. You can make it a 3-month challenge or just dip in occasionally when you need a little boost. You don’t even have to do it in order, if you don’t want.
If you’re a member of my freebie library already, then head straight to the library here to download the freebies! If not, sign up to my mailing list here, to receive the password to the library and access to ALL my freebies plus regular updates from me in your inbox.
I really hope you enjoy these new freebies, make use of the awareness day sheets and love taking part in the personal growth challenge.
I’m so looking forward to seeing what this year has to offer for bloggers and the blogging industry in general. I’ve been really motivated to create content for this year so far – I hope you enjoy the posts as much as I enjoyed writing them.
