We’re into the second month of the New Year and if we’re all being honest, this is the time when many people start to fall away from New Year’s Resolutions. The .blog team is committed to our resolutions though and hopefully in this article we can help you with one of yours as well.
One of our resolutions that we shared was to spend more time highlighting members of the .blog family of bloggers, who we call dotbloggers. But we know that a lot of people make resolutions around health and wellness. That’s why we’re going to highlight a dotblogger that can help you out with your health goals – pinkispink.blog.
All about Pink is Pink
One of things that we love about blogs is that they give people an opportunity to share their personal stories and a part of them with the world. And we think that the Pink is Pink blog is doing an incredible job of authentic storytelling.
The blog is run by a health coach named Karla Branco who has a focus on integrative nutrition. She shares her own personal story about how living a busy corporate life (even in the health industry) was running her down and having a negative impact on her physical and mental health. When her husband’s job caused her to move from Brazil to Barcelona, she used the opportunity to shift the direction of her health and life.
She learned how to find balance in her life and eventually became a health coach.
What Karla shares on the blog
Through her extensive training and experience, she’s gained a wealth of knowledge in health and wellness, which she shares on her blog. The Pink is Pink blog is a type of holistic health and wellness blog.
Karla has her blog divided into two main categories: recipes and welfare. Her “recipe” category is then broken down further into breakfast, salads, snack, lunch, and desserts. Her “welfare” category is split into food, self-care, sport, and relationship.
But here’s the catch. While the recipes are available to anyone, the blog posts in the welfare section are only for subscribers of her blog. There is no cost to subscribe and it’s a great way to be able to build an email list where you can further engage with your audience.
How Karla is monetizing her blog
New bloggers are always interested in learning how to make money blogging, and Karla provides a great example. She uses her blog to sell her services as a health coach.
By creating blog posts, she’s able to show the expertise that she has in the health and wellness field. And through her sharing bits of her own life and story with her audience, she is able to build trust with them. When reading through her blog, you start to feel like you know her. This can make it easier for people to take the step of reaching out for help with their own health.
Karla even has a store set up on her blog to make it easy for people to choose what package they want to buy from her. While she is selling services, this is a great example of how you can use a store on your blog for selling products as well.
Thinking outside of the box with your .blog domain
You can turn your blog into a business or build a blog for your business. As you’ll notice through our Meet the Bloggers series this year, there are many diverse ways that blogs are being used. We’ve already seen it through the blogs we’ve already highlighted. iHeart.blog shares music and media to further connect with their audience. Lilyotron.blog shares her expertise in the tech world while showcasing her freelance writing abilities. And cutcardstock.blog uses their blog to highlight creative ways that people can use their products while making it easy for them to buy.
If you’re ready to put your creative ideas to use, get your .blog domain and get started today. And maybe next year, we will see you as one of our featured bloggers!
