Blog Goals – Class Assignment

10 Feb

Please note this post is an assignment for my Building Social Media Relationships class at McMaster University Centre for Continuing Education.

As part of my Social Media class we were required to start a blog. Immediately I knew what I wanted to write about; food and fashion… two things that I am most interested in. I love all food but I mostly eat organic, raw, and local food. A lot of my family and friends make fun of the foods my husband, daughter, and I eat. We don’t eat anything weird, just real food without all of the chemicals, and junk in it. Having said that, I am NOT perfect when it comes to food; I enjoy trying different things and experimenting but, for most of my meals, I can confidently say they are, what I believe to be, healthy. I think a lot of people have the misconception that if something is organic it doesn’t taste good. And people are right, not everything organic is going to taste good, and the same goes for the non-organic foods. What I find most amusing is when people (some family members-not mentioning any names here, you know who you are) make a weird face or question me when I tell them what I bought or made just because it organic – and the funny thing is the only difference between the organic and non-organic is that the organic is not full of chemicals and preservatives! Wouldn’t you rather eat food that is not full of ingredients which you can’t pronounce or have no clue what they are?

I don’t force or push my beliefs on anyone but, I love to share information with anyone who is interested!

Because of the challenges and misconceptions I have encountered from others when the topic of healthy and organic food comes up, I wanted to write my blog about it. My main goal with this blog is to educate people on healthy food, inspire people to make better food choices, and also share my likes in fashion and style! I also wanted to illustrate that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or feel like a deprivation of any sorts!

I hope to achieve this goal by writing about healthy food choices and by sharing recipes of the delicious foods which I enjoy! I also like to eat out, and there are so many restaurants and shops in and around my community which offer organic, local and raw options which I plan to visit and also write about in hopes that people will also want to explore these places and make better dining choices. I also love fashion and exploring local shops and boutiques, and hope to inspire readers to also do the same.

Goals are a road map of where you want to be and unless you measure them in some way, you really will not know if you have reached them! So, how will I know if I reached my goals? Hmmmm… it’s a hard question but, I think I will know based on my blog post comments and the number of people that follow my blog. What’s a good number? I think 100 followers is great but, I think 200 is even better! That will really make me feel like people are interested in what I’m writing about and I will continue to do so! I hope you enjoy my blog and stay tuned for lots of yummy and exciting posts about food and fashion!

Thank you reading!
