I have just been wondering that now christmas and new year both are over and most of the online writers were busy writing about these- gifts for her or him, etc etc but now what should be our next area of focus in terms of writing? Or is it time to concentrate again on everygreen articles instead of holiday ones? What are you all planning friends!!

Valentine's Day in February.

St Patrick's Day in March (ditto St David's Day, but apparently the Welsh patron saint didn't take off in America half so much!).

Love and marriage continues all the way into the spring and summer.

Outdoor type articles, ready for the vacations.

Thank you so  much Jo, for giving me a direction now, i wasn't aware of these days in March and yeah you are right one need to write about love and marriages because they are the most evergreen perhaps and people are always excited to read about these.

Yup, usually as Spring approaches people are thinking about getting married so wedding info and products are sought after.

In the past, it has consistently been my busiest time, with the most sales at Zazzle.  I am hoping this remains true as I have been getting ready for months.

I remember this time last year thinking, 'Look to Pam', as your sales boost just as mine are dipping.  Yay! I actually did remember in time, but only because you prompted me.  <3

Booking holidays. Places to visit that are on the up this year. Personally I'm looking towards some time in Germany when I get the job thing sorted out.

Places to visit that are unusual and cheap. Maybe relaxing and warm after the wet, windy and cold winter many of us have had.

I have a few plans of my own but I'm not sharing them here for obvious reasons... *grin*


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

I sold two Valentine's Day-themed items these days on Zazzle, so some people are ordering stuff for Valentine's early, especially as it takes a while for Zazzle to deliver.

But, as Jo says, and as she's learned from others, don't expect something you write this year to bring you sales now. It will only happen from next year on. But who knows, you might get lucky this year too :)

Thanks Mira, Yeah Valentine's day was one of the events i was looking forward to and i saw some really pretty good things at zazzle. That's interesting that people are buying things in early January. Good luck for your sales. After reading Jo's tips for 550 articles i am just wondering whether one might need to re-edit the posts since some of the products may not be available the next year.
