Blog Updates

It has been Spring Cleaning on my website the last few days — have you noticed the changes? While a lot of bloggers have been revamping his or her blog as of late, I thought I would start small with just a quick clean up.

If you look at the top (middle) right, you will notice a few new pages: Giveaways, Awards & Affiliations, and Disclaimer

Instead of having ALL of these things paraded on my homepage, I have designated areas for better viewing. Hopefully now my website it less chaotic for those who didn’t know where to look first! 🙂

This should be everyone’s go-to-page to see what amazing giveaways I am hosting, know about, or have entered myself. This is also a page where you can add/link up a giveaway of your own, or one you entered and want to share the love with others. Check it out:)

Awards & Affiliations:
This page is where all my fun awards I have won are posted. Each award is linked to my original post where you can either learn more about me, find other bloggers you should be following as well as play along — consider yourself officially tagged if you have never received any of the awards posted!

The Affiliations listed are all the fun social networks I am part of. Each image is linked to learn more about what they offer and why you may want to be part of the network as well!

Do you need a blog disclaimer? Probably not, since you are most likely hosted via Blogspot or WordPress and have a blanket protection; however, it doesn’t hurt to have it if you consistently discuss touch-y topics.

Most of my posts have been about my Adventures, thus not exactly applicable; however the legal side of me found it necessary to add this page particularly for the future posts I plan on publishing. While it is packed with relevant information, I included some fun, too, so check it out and by all means use as a reference if you feel you need a disclaimer as well.

You may have noticed that I am officially part of the Healthy Living Community Wellsphere. I am actually really excited about this because one of my goals this year is to share more and more of my passion for nutrition and overall healthy living. Are you part of this community, too? If you are–let’s be friends!

Do you have a button for your blog? I do! Some people do not understand or care about these buttons, but I have a background in PR and marketing so I strongly suggest “branding” your blog for exposure and recognition! If you need help, it’s super easy–read this, or simply email me!

That being said…

Blog Buddies:
If you have a blog button, we should swap buttons! You grab mine and I’ll grab yours.. 😉

Fitness Blog
I am excited to share that I am now part of the Fit Blogger Community and will be a Featured Blogger on March 2, 2012!! I look forward to hopefully growing my readership and reaching more people as I share more pertinent information about health and nutrition. Part of my passion for nutrition is to expose or blow the whistle on otherwise unknown facts we may never have known the truth about (I.E. this post).

Spencer’s Market:
I am also a HUGE fan of Spencer’s Market. In fact, I wrote about it in detail here, and you can–and shouldsign up for it here! I have scored some amazing finds for sweet deals I otherwise would not have known about. You can specify your food preferences and look forward to exclusive offers anytime you log in. It has truly made my transition from carnivore to herbivore that much easier.

Did you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
My Daddy surprised me with beautiful roses:)
What did you on Valentine’s Day?
I basically played in the kitchen all day perfecting recipes:)

  1. Your blog already looks so much cleaner! Great job, Jenn!! I like the addition of those new pages. It makes it nice and easy for people to find things!

    Dean and I celebrated with a casual dinner and some chocoate. Pretty oerfect, in my opinion! I read all about your recipes and am so excited for you to share them with us!!! You finally made fruit leather!! Woohoo!!!

  2. I like the new sections Jenn! I don't think I am big enough to need a disclaimer. Most people know what they are getting into when reading my blog!! I love all the advice you give.

    As far as my Valentine's Day went…well you'll just have to read about it.

  3. oooooo nice job Jenn!

    We didn't really celebrate Valentine's Day. We're not “anti” by any means, but I'm blessed to be able to have romantic days throughout the year so one “designated” day just isn't that important to us.

    When it was just the two of us, we usually go out to dinner and drink too much wine- and of course spend the day being all mushy and romantic.

    But now that there are 3 of us? Well, we're lucky to just eat dinner together!

    But we love our life and where we're at as a family =)

    I did however buy myself a box of chocolates AND shared with the hubby- that's love right there! LOL

  4. Everything looks great!

    We didn't do anything special at all for V-day. But don't pity me! lol We made non-plans ahead of time. We're in hard-core vacation planning mode, so we're saving our bucks for that!

  5. Lots of exciting things going on for you now.

    I just did the FRIEND thing on Wellsphere, Jenn. And I will watch for your FitBlogger intro too. I had mine a while ago and like to see who pops up there from time to time.

    Please post about it on the day in case I forget!
