As you can see, this is a very new blog. I’m only 2 posts in! I’m just starting the work of getting content up – both on the blog and on social media.
Why A New Blog?
My other blog – my first one – Life: The Reboot that I started last year after my kidney transplant has morphed in focus. It was supposed to be a lifestyle and health blog, but it’s now more of a self-improvement blog. I’m going to use it for my health coaching. More on that in a future post!
This blog, The Tales of the Rebooted Mom MD, is going to be that original lifestyle and health blog that I intended to have. There are many things that I want to talk about –food, kids, travel, exercise, clothes, and more – that are outside of the focus of Life: The Reboot.
I also want to write more about health – I want to use that diploma after all. And when I get my first novel edited (more than 2/3s done with that process), there will be information about that here as well.
What is Blogtober and How Did I Get Involved?
Getting my new blog started seemed pretty straight-forward. However, just by chance, I came across a post discussing the ins and outs of Blogtober which is basically posting 31 new posts in 31 days. This event starts on October 1st. I found out about this on September 28th.
I am so in!
I am a glutton for punishment, right?
What Am I Writing About this Month?
So, these two days have been spent finding topics to write about during Blogtober. Google has been my friend today. I found several blogs with lists of possible topics to consider which is great. Some possibilities include:
- Travel Wish List
- Random Facts about me
- Fall Smoothies
- Yoga clothes and gear
- Reading List
- Halloween Plans this year
- Halloween Memories
- Fall Self-care routine
- Fall beauty routine
- Staying healthy this fall
- Things I love about fall
- A day in the life
- Fall drink recipes
- Fall Allergies
- Better Sleep
- Teens and school
- Favorite New Fall Shows
- Gratitude list
- Traveling in the fall
- Football (appetizers, tailgating, something along those lines)
- Inspirational Quotes
- Future Holiday Trips
- College Visit Tips (we have one planned for my son during October)
- Ways to be Happier
- Fall Soups
- Product Review
- Eye Injury Prevention Month tips (I am an eye doc by training)
- My transplant story and how I found a donor
- Pro and Cons of Being Tall
- Fall Journaling
- Holiday Wish List
- Fall Seasonal Produce
- Fitness Routine
I’m not sure of the order of posts yet or if I won’t add something else instead. I had also previously finished some Halloween costume and decoration posts to publish this month, but I don’t really want to include that in the 31 (for now!). I obviously will still publish them but there will be 31 other posts getting published too.
Using the hashtag #blogtober, I have been reaching out to other bloggers who are participating; hopefully, I can provide some love for other blogs by checking them out. Maybe I’ll create a round-up post of some of the other bloggers that I meet along the way. I hope to gain new readers and to find other bloggers that I might not have met otherwise.
Well — The Goal Is…
31 posts in 31 days!
Post 1 and counting…Buckle up, it’s going to be a wild ride!
Loving Life — The Reboot!
