If there is one thing I have learned through my 8(!) years of blogging, it’s that each blogger grows and becomes a better content creator by helping and supporting those around them. I owe so much of my success and learning from other people in the healthy living (and general) blogging community. As the saying goes…
We push each other to get better. We could never be as good alone as we are together.
That’s why about 2.5 years ago, two blogger friends and I started a Facebook group in which bloggers like ourselves could share, support, and learn from one another. Formerly known as Healthy Living Blogging Boost, the Healthy Living Community is a group is all about supporting other healthy living bloggers through daily social media share threads and weekly follow threads. Together we will grow our blogs, learn from each other, and have some fun in the process! This is a place for support, sharing, and questions! We highly encourage and a appreciate participation.
We have our own Pinterest board (for members of the group only!), have made long-lasting friendships & business connections, and have all witness our blogs grow as a result of the daily interactions within the group.
Starting this month, I will be hosting an end of month link-up to highlight some of the amazing work done by our members. In addition, we will have a member spotlight each month to feature on of our fabulous members who actively participates, engages in, and supports the group.
If you have your own Healthy Living Blog and want more info on HLC or want to join the fun, click here!
And now to kick things off with our May feature and link love…
Member of the Month: May 2018
Name: Deborah Brooks
Blog: Confessions of a Mother Runner
How long have you been blogging? Just over 4 years
Tell us a little bit about your blog and why you started: My blog started as an extension of my Moms Run This Town group and a way to connect with other like-minded mother runners. My content is centered on running and fitness for the everyday athlete. I frequently discuss my adventures with my MRTT group and the Girls on The Run Team I coach. I also share my passion for vegetarian living by hosting a weekly Meatless Monday link up where I share original recipes..co-hosted by A Whisk and Two Wands.
What’s a fun fact about yourself or your blog that the other members in the group may not know yet? I have a master’s in social work with a specialization in eating disorders. I really enjoyed working in the field before I had my kids and retired to be a stay at home mom. I try to use some of those social work skills to coach my girls on the run team. You will usually see me running around with my crew!
