Playing Catchup

Today’s post is going to be a bit of a mish mash of random things I wanted to fill you in on! You may have noticed some little changes popping up around the blog and they’re all super exciting so I wanted to tell you about them!

1) See that pink Fitfluential badge over on the righthand side of the screen? I’m proud to announce that I’m one of the newest Fitfluential Ambassadors! To learn more about Fitfluential as a company, click here. It’s basically  a collection of health and fitness bloggers and enthusiasts that provide motivation, support and inspiration to fellow ambassadors and others on their fitness journey. It also connects health and wellness brands with these ambassadors. I think it’s a great company and am so excited to be a part of it. My fellow ambassadors already provide me with so much support and encouragement on twitter and through my blog posts that I’m thrilled to be officially part of the club. If you’re on twitter and looking for some advice/motivation/support, check out the #fitfluential hashtag! Oh- and I have my own little page on their website! Check it out.

2. You may notice that there are now two tabs across the top of the page that say Recipes. Some changes are in the works for that page as well. As of yesterday, this amazing service called Recipage, created by fellow food blogger Emily at The Daily Garnish, is now FREE!! I’ve been thinking about using it for a while now and absolutely jumped on board yesterday after I heard the announcement. It’s going to be a bit of a long process changing all my recipes over to the new format but in the end it’ll be much easier to search for recipes and I love the new look and format of it! If you want to see what it will eventually look like, click the second recipes tab to see the ones I’ve done so far. I’ll leave the original recipe tab up until I finish transferring all of the recipes.

3. Remember that contest I bugged you guys to vote in a million times? Well it paid off! I’m officially a Love Blogger for Love Grown Foods!

Thank you SO SO MUCH to every single person that voted. This means I’ll be able to give away lots of LOVE in the coming year so get excited. And be sure to check out LGF’s Facebook page to see some of my fellow Love Bloggers and check out their blogs!

4. Starting tomorrow I’m taking a short little break from blogging. I’ll still be around reading blogs and on twitter but I’ll also be trying to soak up some family time around the holidays. I hope you all will be doing the same! I have some really delicious guest posts lined up for you guys from some of my favorite bloggers so be sure to stop by and check those out!!

Happy Holidays everyone! Thanks so much for reading this little blog of mine :)
