As you may already know, I have another blog dedicated to health and fitness. It is called Syd’s Tip del Día. I post Monday through Friday and each post includes a tip about healthy food choices or mental health as well as a WOD (workout of the day).
I have recently upgraded Train Case Travels to feature the Tip del Día right below the twitter feed on the right-hand side bar. Check it out for daily tips!
Here is an example post…
Make sure to eat something green,
like broccoli or carrots or maybe a bean.
Six servings a day
will do you just fine.
Just make sure you eat some
wherever you dine!
Walk/jog/run 2 miles
Hey, Syd, what’s a “plank?”
A plank is basically a push-up position, but you do not actually do push-ups. Instead just hold the ‘plank-like’ position for a certain amount of time. It works almost every part of your ab muscles and builds a strong core.
Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring
writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely
confused .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
Hello! Well I’ll start with saying wordpress is great and easy to navigate once you play around with it for a few days. The variations of themes are amazing because they provide platforms for any style of writing. For an aspiring writer, I’m sure you have some sort of idea of what you like to write about, so acknowledge that specific passion and write about that! I started with a free WordPress account and after a year I upgraded to own my domain. Personally I think have a “.com” looks more professional(?) maybe, but either paid or free, wordpress is lovely to use.
If you are looking for something more professional, portfolio or resume style, I recommend wix. (If you click on the “digital portfolio” button on the bookmarks bar you can see mine.) Wix is an ultimate playing field for creativity because you can use HTML5 to design your site the way you want it. I have also heard great things about square space for similar reasons.
At the end of the day, I would say definitely try a wordpress and if you aren’t feeling it give another blogging site a go. Find what forum you are comfortable using and play around with it until you know the ins and outs.
Hope that helps and good luck!
