Time to Recharge!



Dear readers,

Why have I asked you to take a look at a new blog? Don’t I post enough stuff on the old one  to keep you busy, seeing that you read about eighteen gazillion other blogs already? That may very well be the case, but…

This is the blog that is going to let me be me. I’m going to be a little freer here than at gregsmithmd.com, which is my prerogative, yes?

Do you wonder what I do when I’m not working? 

Do you wonder if I’m ever NOT working?

Well, here’s part of your answer.

I’ll post about trips I’ve recently taken or am looking to take, books I’m reading or have read, movies, music, sports, you name it.

I may post personal musings, thoughts about things in general or things in specific. I may wax eloquent about news of the day, or I may just be silly sometimes. (Feel free to skip those posts if you are not the silly type. Your loss.)

If it has nothing (or very little) to do with medicine, psychiatry, mental  health, or working, then I’ll post it here. Yes, my friends, I do have a life outside mental health. Shocking, I know, but true nonetheless. 

Your reading is welcomed,  your comments are shamelessly solicited, and I hope you enjoy this little diversion from the serious. 

I know I intend to.

  1. I know we’ve talked about this previously, but, for me, I have no problem throwing everything on one blog. In my opinion, no need to split up. Just to be argumentative (and silly), why not split your twitter feed as well with mental health tweets on one account and recharge stuff on the other account (if you already did that, man do I look bad)

    Anyway, we’re all well rounded people, and I wouldn’t see a problem with this type of content on your other blog. The way I see it, we’re not one dimensional, and our blogs shouldn’t be either. But what do I know…


  2. I am so happy to hear that the NEW, “old” Greg might be coming back (perhaps?). I have missed him. Hope he will be coming back this way soon. Need some riverfront time. Penni


  3. Mike,

    I did think about that, because on my previous Blogger offering I did just that.

    Now, I’m thinking that a lot of the readers I have on gregsmithmd.com are coming there looking for specific mental health related content. I want to keep that a little more pure if possible, both to keep my own thinking on track and to keep myself focused there.

    That being said, I have a lot of other stuff that I would like to comment on, experiment with and share that is certainly not related to mental health at all.

    Your point is well-taken, though.

    We’ll run it up the flagpole and see who (if anyone) salutes.

    Thanks for reading right away!



  4. Hi,
    I hope you don’t mind my entering the fray here. My blog was prompted by my breast cancer diagnosis but I have kept it pretty open in terms of content. In addition to cancer-specific posts, I include writings about family life, parenting, gardening, being a psychologist, and I even post recipes.

    As the readership of my blog has grown, I have become part of the breast cancer blogging community and there is often a communication back and forth between blogs. There is a synergy that is very powerful.

    This has made my smorgasbord style blog a somewhat awkward enterprise. I mean, does my general readership really care about my gluten free mac and cheese recipe? (Actually, bad example as that is my most popular post.) Do they really want to see the 500 photos I post of my kid?

    For the most part, it works out fine but I’m not sure I would have set it up the same way if I had to do it all over again. Then again, I started my blog the day of my diagnosis so the fact that’s it’s still running and I have something to write on a regular basis means something.
