Blogging about health and nutrition had been a dream of mine for many years; I just didn’t know what to call it.
I had developed a passion for sharing the things I was learning about how nutrition affects immediate and long-term health. So when I first became interested in using the internet to share these things I wanted to have a website I could easily update.
I explained my vision to different website designers but it seemed I was asking them to setup some very complicated site. I didn’t have the money to pay someone to set it up and I didn’t know how to do it myself so I basically gave up on that idea, at least for the time being.
I was asking for a blog website but didn’t know what to call it?
Meanwhile I continued to use the old school methods of printed and mailed out newsletters which was quite time consuming and expensive. I also made copies of flyers to give to people as I talked to them about their nutritional needs.
You may be thinking what was her problem?
Let me give you a little perspective on the time frame. My first dream of having a blog website was in the mid 1990’s. Technology has come a long way since then. What did you know about websites and blogging in the mid 1990’s? That was when internet was still dial up and I barely even knew how to send a simple email. Do you remember dial up?
My dream went through several phases but was still in the back of my mind. It wasn’t lost, just on hold.
I kept up with basic computer stuff (no programming or anything like that.) My computer knowledge grew as I did things like taxes, bookkeeping, writing letters, emails, and then eventually even joined facebook.
In 2011 a step by step online course for setting up blog websites caught my attention. Well, that got me started and here I am today.
I’m now living my dream of sharing the things I have learned about health and nutrition on my own blog. I feel as though the whole world has literally opened up to me. My outreach on facebook now reaches out to 20 different countries.
In this process it is amazing what I have learned about how websites work, how to schedule emails to go out at specific times, and all kinds of things about social media. I’m on LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, and I even do Tweets.
Technology has given this 70 year old grandma the opportunity to share about how nutrition and lifestyle awareness can impact your health.
As a matter of fact, my unleashed inspiration dream now is to make a difference in the future health of all the lives I touch.
