MY NEW LIFE

This is the second phase of me stepping out of my comfort zone. I am currently involved in a 31 day Ultimate Blog Challenge. The challenge is to write a blog post each day for the month of July and post it.

Using social media for anything other than an occasional post on Facebook and most recently, recording Facebook live videos on my group page, is so far out of my wheelhouse that I can't even imagine it. I am being challenged to tweet and use hashtags.  I am also supposed to comment and share other blog posts, none of which I have done before.

So here I go...

I recently retired from my career of more than 30 years as a tax professional. I am now following my heart and growing my nutritional consulting and health coaching business. In that effort, I am trying new things to make myself more visible...like Facebook live and the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

I was recently challenged to record some Facebook live videos at a conference I attended. The first time was a little terrifying but I have done several since then and it gets easier each time. I don't know that I've gotten any better at it but at least I'm not as self-conscious and tongue-tied as when I started.

I'm hoping that this blog challenge makes me a better blogger and helps me to navigate this new arena. I attempted to start a blog about two years ago but got overwhelmed with how it all works. Now I have more time to learn about this new world of communication so I'm diving in.

Join me as I find out how this blog stuff works, and what I am supposed to do with all these hashtags. I hope I can learn how to use this platform and I can teach you a few things about finding your way to and maintaining a healthy lifestyle while I do.

Stay tuned.

    I feel the same way - I’ve built a website and posted blogs, but I have a mental block when it comes to Twitter. The best way for me to learn anything is to just roll up my sleeves and get into it. I just need to remember that learning anything new is hard at first, but gets easier with practice. Does anyone provide a course for hashtag101?
    Love your blog and look forward to reading more.

    Maureen...I'm glad I'm not alone in my tech mental block. I would love to find a class that teaches how to use social media effectively, not just Twitter.
