Today we are celebrating my 100th blog post. That is a-mazing and wonderful. But not only am I proud of myself. In celebrating me, what I really want to celebrate is YOU.
I’m sharing the articles that got the most response from you over the last year.
I’m so so grateful to you. Your comments (193 total!) and emails have kept me excited and motivated to continue this project. Every time one of you says that I inspire you, you know what happens? You inspire me. For really.
Yes, this practical lady gets teary-eyed reading what you have to say.
Your 13 Favorites from 2013
Making Easy Meals
You guys thought this one was a particularly useful look inside your pantry and fridge door to find ideas to fancy up those greens.
I’ve had a lot of reader feedback telling me this bowl is yummy which is great because it really only requires two ingredients and I created it in a hotel room.
What a common problem for raw foodies, especially in the North! You appreciated these pointers and thought they helped you find a high raw balance, even when it’s cold out.
My Thoughts on Life
I bared open my heart in this share, and it hit a sensitive spot for a lot of you.
An article that also has 100 in the title seemed fitting to include here. You responded to this one. Even those who aren’t related to my grandpa.
This was my shot at reminding you that you don’t have to be a guru or celebrity to change others’ lives with your actions.
Natural and Simple Beauty
I get comments and emails about this one at least a few times a week. I think sharing my acne before photo convinced you that I’m just one of you!
Gave you guys some ideas to think about. Including my before and after skincare routine with cost breakdown.
Another eye-opening one for you guys. Showing you don’t have to put your dollars towards a product where most of the cost goes into marketing… but I digress.
Plans for 2014
High Raw Cookbook
I got a wonderful response when I put out the call for recipe testers to my family of HealthyV Newsletter subscribers. Seems you guys like food. We’re working right now to finalize all the recipes. To all my recipe testers, thank you bunches! You know who you are. 😉
Don’t worry. What I write about isn’t changing. I’m just working to make sure I draw in the those of you my content really jives with. I want to make sure I reach the right readers so we aren’t wasting each others’ time, ya know?
