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.

Oh, my gosh! Thank you for the shout out! I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Before I started blogging I was wary of the internet, fearing all the negative I have heard about. Instead, I have found a kind and supportive group of talented people who are passionate about what they are sharing, who take time to reach out to others with kindness. I am honored to be mentioned along with this group of 15 and cannot thank you enough for the nomination. Love and kindness always!
Congratulations! And I definitely agree with you, Consistency is key!
