Historical National Days in July

July has plenty of historical days to celebrate and honour the people involved. For our US friends – American Independence Day- the “Fourth of July” is a federal holiday in the US commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on 4th July 1776. The day is associated with fireworks, parades, barbeques, and carnivals and if you have an American audience or products, it’s a great day to get involved with.

The Battle of the Boyne, on the 12th, was a battle in 1690 across the River Boyne near the town of Drogheda, in the modern-day Republic of Ireland. King William’s forces defeated King James and he fled for France.

The 14th sees Emmeline Pankhurst Day – the British political activist who helped women get the vote and who has been named one of the most important people of the 20th Century.

St Swithin’s Day – Swithin’s Day, also called St. Swithun’s Day, (15th July), a day on which, according to folklore, the weather for a subsequent period is dictated. In popular belief, if it rains on St. Swithin’s Day, it will rain for 40 days, but if it is fair, 40 days of fair weather will follow.

Sharing your content on social media means you are visible (and sometimes vulnerable!)

Experiencing moments of unease about sharing online is perfectly normal. We’ve all had days where it feels overwhelming to put yourself out there.

You worry about what you’ve written.

You worry that it’s not professional.

You worry that it’s not good enough.

You worry that YOU aren’t good enough!

One worry escalates into another until you’re doubting your entire online existence.

How can you stop these feelings and reconnect with your content?

Try revisiting your social media goals. Why are you sharing your posts? Is it to build your email list, entertain your audience, sell your products or services, or grow your network?

Once you remember why you’re here you’ll be able to focus on what you want to say.

Another great tip is to look at the feedback your clients have left. Reading the uplifting comments left by people who have worked with you and loved it is a great way to shift your mindset. You may doubt yourself, but the truth is in the testimonials!

Stop those mindset mishaps before they begin by getting organised and planning your social media content.
