Hey Fran, Hey! haha I love you so much. Everyday I strive to practice healthier lifestyle habits because of you. My question is, what advice would you give to someone who wants to start a blog. I am in the process of writing some articles, but I honestly do not know where to get started in terms of publishing a site of my own. Any advice would be wonderful! You are truly my BLOGspiration=)
Thank you for the sweet energy <3 I would suggest just starting the site, as if you already had a huge market. Even one person reading your work is amazing. And if you’re truly insightful, that person will share the link somewhere or tell someone else and everything will grow way faster than you expected!
A major boost would be writing for your favorite sites, too. Submit articles to ALL of them and make sure they link back to your site with every article they post. That will help you build some cool traffic and readers.
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”—Andrew Boyd (via purplebuddhaproject)
Hey Fran-Thank you for your work and inspiration. This is going to sound a little corny and cliche, but is very true: your work through this site has changed my life! My question is, could you please recommend some excellent blogs for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free recipes? I'd greatly appreciate it, and thank you for being on the great path :)
Thank you for the sweet energy! I’m happy you’re finding the information helpful <3
“The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.”—Pema Chodron
