Can you believe it’s nearly March? This month is full of loads of huge days we can bounce off for our social media content calendars. Other than World Compliment Day (you can compliment me on Twitter here, thank you very much! ;)), we’ve got essential days like Tolkien Reading Day (I vote for public readings!), Make Up Your Own Holiday Day, International Goof Off Day and Puppy Day!

Don’t forget, it’s only a few weeks until April 1st! If you want to do something for April Fools’ Day, you’d better get planning!

Check out the key dates for February here and April dates are here!
