I’m new to blogging, but I’ve already learned one important lesson – chocolate is sexy! What I mean is that when I post about a scrumptious chocolate dessert, I get hits through the roof. But, most of the other stuff I write about just doesn’t get the love.
This has been kind of tough for me because a part of me wants to write sexy chocolate posts everyday just to get the attention. But I didn’t start this blog to write about chocolate. I mean I want to write a little about it, because I enjoy it and it’s a part of my life. But if I write about chocolate too much I won’t be true to the essence of my blog.
What I really started this blog to do was to share about my plant-based diet because it’s transformed my weight and health and it’s made such a difference in my life. And I want to share that with people. I want others to know what going plant-strong can do for them.
I also want to share about my ongoing transition to veganism, a lifestyle that avoids harming or exploiting animals. When I first started eating plant-based, I didn’t think of myself as vegan. But over time not eating animals increased my compassion for them and now I don’t want to do anything to harm them.
I know my plant-based diet and veganism aren’t sexy; otherwise there would be more vegans in the world. But this is who I am and it’s what I want to share. So goodbye popularity, I cannot in good conscience write about chocolate everyday.
Oh well – I was never one of the ‘popular’ kids anyway.
