I’m so excited that this article marks a year since I started writing “A Better You”. My anniversary column if you will. Writing this column has been rewarding to me in many ways. I get to share my thoughts on some of my favorite topics. I’ve even had people recognize me. I’m a mini celebrity. Very mini. Probably more like a micro celebrity.
I’m always excited to get feedback, good or bad, from anyone who reads the column. Reader feedback is my barometer to see how I’m doing and gives me ideas on what our readers are interested in reading about or getting more information on. While I do appreciate the feedback I’ve received thus far, It would be nice to get just a little bit more.
I know a lot of you are comfortable just reading and taking in the information, but don’t you ever wonder about some things? Do you wonder what people think of the P90x workout? Do you wonder if anyone has ever done the Atkins diet? Do you wonder if washing with oil works? Are you thinking about getting the SelectTech dumbells? Do you want to try microdermabrasion?
Well if you’ve ever wondered about any of these things or anything remotely related to health or beauty, I’m your girl! If you’ve been reading this column, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a super geek. I do research on everything I think about trying. If you don’t feel like doing all the research you can have me do it. I’ll be your free mechanical turk of health and beauty (look up Amazon’s mechanical turk for the reference).
But I’m serious. You can send me an email, find me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or send me a carrier pigeon. I’m always open to new ideas and new suggestions. I would like to make this year more about what our readers want to know about.
I already have some good feedback and some great information lined up for you for this year. It’s going to be great and I know you’ll enjoy it. But, if you ever have anything you’re curious about feel free to ask me. I’d be happy to do the legwork for you.
You don’t even have to write a full explanation. You could just write me an email that just says “spider veins”. I’ll research and write an article about spider veins. I’m serious. I’ll even shout you out in the article. If you don’t want a shout out just add “no shout outs” to the message you send.
Remember, this column might be written by me, but it’s all about and for you. Use me! I’m here for you. Don’t be afraid to contact me for any reason. We all comprise a community. So, what’s a community if we don’t have open lines of communication where we share or experiences and information?
I always sigh off by saying “cheers to a better you” because I sincerely hope that what you’ve just read has helped you in some way (no matter how minor) to improve yourself. If anyone in our community improves the community also improves. If we all improve just a little bit, our community improves tremendously. Hopefully this year we can make some tremendous strides together.
Until next time, cheers to a better you!
