Blogging 2020: Dates, Events, and Themes for Geeky Blogs and Social Media

Blogging 2020: Dates, Events, and Themes for Geeky Blogs and Social Media

Every year at work, I put together a list of relevant dates and monthly themes that I can use on social media. And every year, I completely forget to do the same thing for my blog, so then I forget about all of them and miss them.

So I thought this year, I’d get ahead, and actually make a list of fun geeky events, conventions, holidays and themes. That way, I know when they’re coming—and I can actually plan content ideas for them.

There’s no reason for me to keep all the fun for myself, so for all my fellow geeky bloggers, here’s my curated list of fun events and holidays for 2020!
