Friendship, Fat Tuesday & The Fish Bowl: Content Marketing Inspiration For February

By Jess Budde

Dear February,

Just because you have less days than everyone else doesn't mean you're any less of a month. In fact, what I love so much about you is that you're just as chuck-full-o-nonsensical (and serious) observances as all the other months. You make it easy to come up with genius content marketing ideas, and for that I'll always appreciate our friendship.

Love always,


P.S. Last year, the February post was adorned with super fun GIFs rather than straight-up images. I liked it. Hopefully you liked it, too. Let's do it again.
