Need a few article ideas this month? Well Mother’s Day is not the only holiday there is to write about in May, believe it or not. In fact, there are a ton of other holidays that you can use to write great content and tie into your business. While there are many week-specific holidays that you can celebrate in May, I believe that there are enough month-long holidays to keep you busy and writing the entire month. These are also great if you are an affiliate article marketer.
