Simultaneously to this venture, I decided to take a bit of a detour from wellness coaching. Well, actually I just added another job to juggle, but, since I've had such phenomenal success with Oh So Lean, I launched a Biggest Loser Challenge that will run through May. I wish I had some before pictures to show you... but you know what a size 14 looks like, right? 170 lbs on a petite sized 5' 4" frame ain't purdy. I avoided the cameras so much that I have no 'before' pictures. Which doesn't really cause me any duress, except that I'd like to have a dramatic pictorial testimonial page. All that to say, I now have another blog http://www.perfectbodyshapeforyou.com/ that just went live. I'll be fast and furiously transferring some articles I have written in the past, so hopefully you'll find some helpful information there if you are looking to lose weight and/or be more fit. I'll also be adding new content as time permits. My goal is a weekly post that will be educational and motivational. Wednesday's Weight Loss Tips? Or something a little more original maybe.
I do have an 'after' picture, even though I am still a work in progress. This was taken back in November when we went to Cancun (all expenses paid - the best vacation ever!)
I have been rambling about my activities, but I really haven't gotten to the meat of what is on my mind. Much of the time I have invested over the past few weeks has been overwhelmingly eye-opening. I feel a little like Alice peeping into the tiny door of another magical world. How long does it take one to get acclimated to the world of web 2.0, bloggydom, the social network sphere, and all that still lies over the horizon, undiscovered? I am not really sure how to balance it all. I can remember when I worked in IT part of the software we used compiled the data collected from multiple sources and reported the merged streams all in one place, in a way that was manageable. I am envisioning something like that for this newbie to be able to keep up. Somebody somewhere tell me it exists... please? You know - a split screen with all your social networks flashing updates, color coded ones to let you know when something really urgent needs your attention. Even if that handy dandy tool isn't on the market yet, I'd just like a simple tutorial on how to link blogs together, build buttons, badges, headers, and scrolling button ads. I guess I am asking too much. Hopefully, all our new followers will bare with us as we tackle each challenge, one search at a time. In the meantime, I'll try to put up a widget with links of all the blogs I am currently managing. What I find most frustrating is hindsight. Not knowing to build all the blogs under one umbrella. Maybe I'll explore the import blog option so that I don't have people thinking I have a split personality... signing half my comments as me, and the other half when logged in to Hannah's site. Sometimes I forget to note that I am operating under an alias.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings. Please feel free to leave me tips or instructions on how to make any of the above tasks easier or less time consuming. I will become your most faithful follower if you do. :)
