october blog post ideas

I figured I would get a head start on planning for October blog posts by coming up with ideas for that month.

Today I figured I’d stop myself before I even begin and come up with some awesome October blog post ideas that not only I can use, but other bloggers can use too.

Now let’s jump into it!
