What’s Happening In November
There’s a lot going on November, so finding blog post content that will work for your audience shouldn’t be too difficult.
Preparing for the holidays is definitely at the top of most to-do lists this month. People are making travel plans, searching for new recipes online, decorating their homes and creating holiday-themed crafts.
Thanksgiving alone offers a variety of topics that will be popular in November but the whole month is full of interesting stuff!
Holidays & Observances In November
There are two “official” U.S. holidays celebrated in November – Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day.
Veteran’s Day is November 11th in the U.S. and it’s our official day to celebrate and honor “all of those who have served the country in war or peace” according to this article from the U.S. Department of Defense. Other countries celebrate similar holidays on November 11th for their own veterans.
As far as blog post ideas, no matter what niche you’re in, you can probably find at least one veteran that would make a relevant interview post.
For example, maybe you write about parenting and your audience is single moms. You could interview a single mom who is also a veteran. Your blog post could be about how their experience in the military has affected their parenting style.
That’s just one example of how to make Veteran’s Day relevant to your own blog and interesting for your audience.

Increase Your Blog’s Income In November
With the holidays upon us, November is a great month to make money with your blog. Here are a few tips for increasing your income from your blog during November:
1. Create niche-specific gift guides – Stand out from the competition by creating gift guides that are specific for your niche. Include details about the products and services you’re writing about so your readers have the information they need without visiting other blogs or websites.
2. Offer an exclusive time-sensitive discount – If you create your own products or offer services, create a limited-time discount to encourage a purchase. If you’re using affiliate links, contact the merchants or your affiliate manager and request an exclusive discount for your readers. Many merchants are happy to oblige – you just have to ask.
3. Include a strong Call-To-Action (CTA) – Many times getting the sale is as simple as asking for it. Just because you include links to products and services doesn’t mean people are going to click them. When writing about your recommendations, include an obvious call-to-action so your readers know how to purchase. Include a “Buy Now” button or link.
