My Why

I was a business analyst at a major aerospace corporation several years ago, then a stay-at-home mom for over 14 years.  When I got divorced, I worked temporary jobs then landed an Assistant Property Manager position. When I was laid off,  I had time to reflect.  I also had digestive issues (acid reflux).  I took several medications; however, none of them helped my reflux.  I looked into taking a holistic approach.  That is when I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned about several dietary theories and applied some of them to my life. After graduating from IIN, I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I created my blog to share with others what I learned and my goal is that the content on my blog would help others and make a difference in their lives.

My Advise to the New Blogger

First, blog about what you love. When you blog about what you love, your content will come more easily.

Second, I learned that when you first began blogging, it is important to be consistent.  When I first started my blog, I was very inconsistent and life got in the way.  There were periods of time that I didn’t have time to blog.  Earlier this year, I took a stand, and decided to commit to blogging at least once a week.  However, I found that I wasn’t getting any followers.  So, I started blogging every day. It takes time to get started, so be patient and have fun.
