About March. The name of March comes from Latin Martius, the first month of the earliest Roman calendar. It was named for Mars, the Roman god of war who was also regarded as a guardian of agriculture and an ancestor of the Roman people through his sons Romulus and Remus.
The month Martius was the beginning of the season for both farming and warfare, and the festivals held in his honor during the month were mirrored by others in October when the season for these activities came to a close.
Martius remained the first month of the Roman calendar year perhaps as late as 153 BC, and several religious observances in the first half of the month were originally new year’s celebrations. Even in late antiquity, Roman mosaics picturing the months sometimes still placed March first.
Welcome March and Spring!
We love warm and bright days of Spring.
As I end one month and get ready to start another, I have to say, I’m really looking forward to enjoying the change of seasons. I have the honor of working with exceptional brands for their Search Engine Optimization strategy plan and the creation of their unique content & marketing.
I am looking forward to diving into March. It’s always fun to mix things up a bit when creating content for digital marketing research, photography brands, wedding planners, and doctors!
We are ready for our next adventure!
March challenge is to publish a new 800 -1000 words post every single day. Never in my life have I accomplished this schedule. Seems near to impossible but I will do my best to reach my goal: 31 posts!
What about you? What are your plans?
How are you stepping into the new month?
