Blue Monday this year is today, January 18th.

It doesn't get the hype of other colorful days. It doesn't have the consumer appeal of Black Friday, the historic significance of Red Monday, or the punk sensibility of Green Day

  • The days are short, nights are long, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere.
  • Chances are your favorite football team has been eliminated and the coach fired.

Based on the fact that you are reading this and not a blog about how to buy a Caribbean island for a tax shelter, I'm going to guess you didn't win the historic Powerball jackpot last night.

Me either. I could have predicted that.

We're thinking about predictions because with the New Year we saw a pile of "content marketing prediction" posts, and so we thought we'd summarize them here to make it easier for you to plan the year out.
