30+ July Blog Ideas To Easily Fire Up Your Content Pinterest

Summer is here! I’m a huge fan of getting outside and enjoying the pool weather, family BBQs, and all the other fun summer activities. 

This summer, I’m also taking an intentional break from Instagram, and I’m SO excited to unplug and enjoy the outdoors. 

If you’re wondering how you can take a well-deserved social media break this summer without losing website traffic or leads, your answer is search engine optimization (SEO). 

SEO is about driving free, organic traffic to your website from Google – without any ads or social media!

I know digital marketers tout social media as an amazing free way to promote your business, which is true.

But Google SEO is equally (if not more) important.

So, use these July blog post ideas to boost your brand’s visibility outside social media!

July 2023 Holidays to Know

Table Of Contents

Even with summer in full swing, there are still many social media holidays and awareness months to celebrate in July. Before diving into the 30+ July blog ideas, mark these dates on your calendar! Read how you can use these July blog post ideas to connect and engage with your audience.

Disability Pride Month

Are you a creator who blogs about your experience living with a disability? Use this month to share your story and connect with your audience while highlighting July is Disability Pride Month.

Disability Pride Month is celebrated yearly in honor of the disability community and the milestones achieved through the American Disabilities Act of 1990. Inclusivity and accessibility are a priority for website owners, especially those who want to rank on Google. 

If you aren’t a creator living with a disability, use this month to create a blog post around supporting individuals with disabilities, or use it as a time to check that your website meets accessibility standards. 

French-American Heritage Month

National Bison Month

This can go two ways… As a food blogger, you can share your best bison burger and meatball recipes with this blog post idea!

Or, in the opposite direction,  as a conservationist creator, you can share information about how to honor and respect these animals and other wildlife.

Wild About Wildlife Month

National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention Month

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed in July to raise awareness about mental health issues impacting minority communities. Racial and ethnic minorities in the United States experience unique challenges when it comes to mental health.

As a BIPOC creator, you can share your experience with mental health this month. Share your story on your blog and repurpose what you wrote into a story or LIVE for social media. Despite the fear surrounding sharing what you’ve been going through, there’s a lot of connection to be found in vulnerability – check out my story that I shared in July 2019.

Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Awareness Month

UV Safety Awareness Month

Plastic Free July

As a sustainability and eco-friendly blogger, Plastic Free July is an awesome opportunity to share all your tips with people who may be new to a more eco-conscious lifestyle. 

Plastic Free July is a global movement to reduce plastic consumption and adopt a more eco-friendly lifestyle throughout the month. Share blog post ideas on how to ditch single-use plastics and eco-friendly alternatives to popular single-use plastic products. 

Don’t forget to repurpose your July blog content ideas into social media posts to expand your research. Use hashtags like #PlasticFreeJuly and #ZeroWaste to connect with other creators sharing this month’s plastic-free journeys.

July 1 to 7: National Clean Beaches Week

July 16 to 22: Birth Trauma Awareness Week 

Everyone’s journey to motherhood is unique, and unfortunately for many, that includes a traumatic birthing experience. Promote your doula business and use your expertise to share how you help clients navigate birth trauma as a doula and birth worker. This year’s theme is postnatal post-traumatic stress disorder, which allows you to share how you support clients with this condition. 

For mom blog content ideas, share how you navigate your birth trauma postpartum. What helped you get through this traumatic experience? On social media, use the hashtag #BTAW23 to show support. 

July 11 to 18: Shark Week

Are you fascinated by sharks and the underwater world? Shark Week is a week-long of Shark TV programming on the Discovery Channel. 2023 Shark Week is hosted by Jason Momoa (how dreamy) and there will be tons of shark feature films and highlights.

As a blogger and content creator, you can share shark-related content during shark week (or Jason Momoa fan appreciation, I certainly wouldn’t be complaining). If you live in a coastal town with many shark sightings, share some content ideas about how to swim with sharks in your area (which will boost local SEO!).

July 1: Canada Day

July 1: National Postal Worker Day

Show support for your mail delivery team with this content idea!

July 7: World Chocolate Day

July 10: Panic Attack Awareness Day

If you are a BIPOC blogger who suffers from panic attacks, this is an excellent opportunity to tie in your story for Minority Mental Health Awareness Month as well.
