My blog has generally been news-generated and about anything that inspired me to write, but as I sat at my desk one day this week I realised something pretty obvious. Ooops. I wasn’t really taking the advice I dish out to clients and that is to keep it real!
As an editor I cover a wide range of topics, but I have always had one specific favourite thing to write and research about – health and wellbeing. This is my main patch – I know what I am talking about (or at least I know how to find out about it), I have a sympathetic ear (so I am told) and knowing more about the ways to improve our health is what really interests me.
So I’m going to take my blog down one route from now on and that is news and updates about anything that relates to your health and wellbeing, wellness, vitality, whatever you want to call it. Whether it’s your diet, the health of your children, mental health, fitness, or ways to keep young, I want to know about it.
As I get a bit bolder (and older) I may even embark on my own personal health and fitness experiences and challenges (my first being to drink more water!), but one step at a time, I say having just sold an exercise bike that of course did eventually become a clothes horse.
Behind the headlines
I hope that you enjoy reading my blog as much as I will enjoy researching and finding out lots of new and interesting things. Ultimately I want it to be credible – so I will be reporting beyond the ‘PR poof’ as much as possible and writing about any health claims in a more factual way.
I’ll still be talking about all the sensational claims, but I’ll be putting a more realistic spin on them so that anyone who is a big fan of Dr Google isn’t let down the wrong path. So that might be for example, recent stories such as a) probiotics can cure shyness (bit of an exaggeration – but worth some more research) and b) two bars of chocolate can reduce the risk of heart disease (er, hang on let me read that study and explain how that is a little bit of an overstatement. But quite interesting. Put the chocolate bars down Julia).
My main aim is that when I am not working with clients on editorial projects I’ll be keeping up-to-date with any health-related developments and news. If you would like me to contribute to your website, pitch or publication, which focuses on health and wellbeing, or you are interested in any of my posts then please get in touch as I’d love to hear from you.
