Thanks so much for the love and encouragment on my post yesterday about being a crybaby not an emotional eater. There is always an adjustment period when you move to a new place and for me last week was a rough week. I’ve lived in enough places – 4 different states and now 3 different countries – that I’m used to it. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to get frustrated or miss things and people from home. Because I’ve been so many places and loved so many people I’m always missing someone or another. Luckily new people always manage to enter my life and create new friendships to fill my heart up. And over time the new frustrating things become routine and comfortable. Time heals everything, even if it solves nothing.
Merry Go Round
News: I’m now considering going to Fitbloggin11. I’d have to do some serious work and saving, but it would be a great business trip/fun blogger reunion/family stopover visit. And I would get to teach people (newbies even!) about blogging. I love, love, love teaching people about blogging and one of goals is to speak at a blogging conference, which means I’m really considering it now. I’m just a bit hesitant since I’m based in the land of the kiwis now. Will you be there?
Blogging Tip: Link internally! Link to your old blog posts and pages as much as you can when you are posting new stuff. This gives you an SEO boost and it gives readers relevant content to read if they want. Be sure to use (This tip is as much a reminder for me as it is a tip…I don’t do it nearly as much as I should!) For more blogging tips, check out my health blogging e-book!
Favorite Product: Nerd Fitness’ Rebel Fitness Guide. I was hoping to be able to do a review by today but there is just soo much good information packed into this thing I still haven’t finished reading it. I’m completely awed by how much value Steve managed to pack into this thing. I know how much work it takes to write and produce an e-book so it’s quite impressive. I’m loving reading it and promise I’ll finish this weekend and do a full review next week.
Favorite Link: Rachel Wilkerson’s post about owning everything you do. She kick-started a ton of healthy living bloggers to follow her lead and tell the world “Sorry, I’m not sorry” for their actions. I love the empowerment. We should own our actions and stop being sorry for them. Thanks for the reminder Rachel!
Recipes on the food blog: Mmm, yummy week this week. Best things: Roasted balsamic brussel sprouts and thai green curry chicken; Mini Oreo Cheesecakes (these were a big hit with everyone)
Have a great weekend everyone! :)
