On reaching a milestone, and embracing new technology

facebook gluten free

Yesterday on my Facebook feed a memory popped up-“I started this diet one week ago today”.  I became gluten free on August 20, 2014.  Hard to believe so much time has passed.

I never thought when I began this journey that I would become somewhat of an expert on gluten free living.  I never thought I would be blogging about it, that’s for sure.  I have always looked for new ways to increase my readership.  It has always been my mission to help others have a less rocky path to walk down.   For any of us who blog, we always hope that we can reach others, but that is not always the case.

I am not the type to want people following me, or reading my blog just for the sake of following me or reading my blog.  I always hope that anyone who visits my page will get something out of it.  Yes, there are “collectors”-those who like and follow a page just to get others to do the same.  But there are also those who need someone to take their hand and lead them.  And that is what I have aiming to do since day one.

I came across several online pages yesterday on how Instagram can grow your blog audience.  Hmmm, I thought, I have always steered clear of social media, except for Facebook, which in all honesty, had not done much to increase my readership.  Maybe it’s time to expand my horizons, I thought.  So I set to work.

Granted, I am new at this.  I put up three posts yesterday, and at this point, already have twelve followers.  Are they really interested in my blog?  Hard to say.  I am in a learning curve.  But I was once on this site too.  I have come such a long way in my blogging style-I have truly found my voice.

I feel so much better than I did two years ago.  I am healthier and happier.  Being gluten free is not a panacea, but it has made a huge difference in the way I feel.  It has also opened doors for me to be able to genuinely help people.  I hope by opening myself up to new technology that I will be able to reach more.

To all of you who follow me and read my blog, I thank you.  My mission is accomplished.
