July 2021 Content Ideas and Inspiration
Halfway through the year now, we’re in July, a new month and a new chance for our goals and aspirations, as Oprah Winfrey would say.

Other than your goals and aspirations, July is the month to relax, enjoy the sun and eat a lot of delicious food, especially if you do a barbecue in your garden with your friends and family!
I think one of my favourite July quotes is this one:
“Live in each season as it passes: breathe the air, drink the drink, taste “Live in each season as it passes: breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit“ - Henry David Thoreau #julycontent ideas Click To Tweet

As always, an interesting combination of serious issues and fun this month.
The month of July is named after Julius Caesar by a decision of the Roman Senate in 44BC as July was the month of his birth.
Before that, it had been known as Quintilis (fifth) as it was the fifth month in the old calendar.
Until the 18th century, the word July in English had the stress on the first syllable and rhymed with duly or truly.
Although six months have passed, July 1 is not the mid-point of the year. The exact halfway point comes at 1pm BST on July 3 in a non-leap year.
No month ends on the same day of the week as July unless it’s a leap year when January does.
July is the warmest month in the Northern Hemisphere on average. It is similar to January in the Southern Hemisphere.
Sometimes the hot, long days of July are called the “dog days of summer”.
July’s birthstone, the ruby, is often associated with contentment, love, passion, and integrity.
