#NationalGrouchDay and other October Thoughts

By October 15, 2018 No Comments

It’s finally October and I can freely participate in all things pumpkin-related. There are more than you may realize.

This lovely season is replete with activities and experiences that appeal to all five senses, and you should feel no shame in exploiting all of them to get your content noticed. When you use seasonal hashtags, you reach new audiences and you link people to other social media users who may be interested in the same topics.

If you know which topic/holiday/hashtag is coming up, you can prepare relevant content to share, engage new clients, and create an editorial calendar that makes the most of the many rich opportunities fall offers for marketing and content curation.

Below are some of the many October hashtags you can use (These are the most popular “general” October hashtags for Instagram and Twitter.)

#happiness #holiday #picoftheday #pumpkins #breastcancerawareness#pumpkin #horror #ink #photography #orange #nature #fashion #photooftheday #instagram #pumpkinspice #cute #beautiful #blackandwhite

And to get more specific, below are the days that are “observed” this week. (Some of them are serious, some are obscure, but all of them are hashtags that trend on Twitter and Instagram for these particular days.)
