What's Trending


NFL Football
Football season is here! Expect to see football, NFL, and NFL team names in trending topics every week from now until the Super Bowl in February. Here's a tip: if you're in any way, shape, or form covering cities, food, parties, or sports, print out a schedule of each week's game so you can see upcoming match-ups and tailor your content to them the week prior. Consider posting meal or food ideas on the weekends.

Events and Holidays


Fashion Week
Fashion Week is still kicking through the 13th of September.

The X-Files
The X-Files premiered on September 10, 1993, which explored the possibility that we're not alone and aliens really do exist. Plus, there was Fox Moulder, who is still one of my top crushes to this day.

9/11
Hard to believe that this year marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center in NYC. Interesting fact: US libraries are being encouraged to remain open for the entire 24 hour period during 9/11 as a symbol of freedom, tolerance, and hope in an event called "Libraries Remember." September 11th is also Patriot Day.

Video Games Day
Video Games Day falls on September 12th. Even if you aren't a video game blogger, this day could prove interesting if you're covering from an angle of fitness or food since there are tons of games out there now that involve those two subjects. You could also focus on your favorite childhood video game and list how it impacted you. Other topics could include lessons learned from video games, video games to avoid, scariest video games, video games that make you smarter, video games that are great for kids, and lots more.

National Hispanic Heritage Month
Celebrate the hispanic heritage starting on September 15th. In your content, you could highlight everything from food, activities, families, traditions, and lots more.

Agatha Christie's Birthday
Agatha Christie was born on September 15th, 1890. This would be a great time to highlight any quotes, life lessons learned from her books, or her body of work.
