There are several festivals we celebrate each year, several events of national or international importance are going on almost every other day. You can target any of these events to write about and provide useful information people look for. The trend is, generally, traffic to such blogs witness rising traffic as the event approaches, at its pick during the event is going on and gradually subsides as the event is over.
