Merry Christmas and Happy Anniversary!

Merry Christmas everyone! Today (26.12.14) is extra special for me because I’m celebrating the anniversary of my first blog post on Nutritionval.com.

Over the last 12 months I’ve uploaded 86 posts, had 3,626 views from 79 countries and have nearly 100 followers.  I also won a scholarship award for my blog and had an amazing time at the award ceremony on 5th December where I meet a hero of mine Dr Tanya Byron who presented my award.

I have really enjoyed writing my blog and have learned  new technical skills and a great deal about social media. It takes time, patience and commitment to keep a blog going for 12 months with many closing after just a few months, but it seems that every day I learn something new that I am just desperate to share..

My Edge Hill University Scholarship Award has allowed me to attend a number of excellent nutrition events and to share my experiences with other students who weren’t able to attend, for one reason or another. For me it’s a great record of what CPD activity I have undertaken.

Most of all over the last 12 months I’ve met some really interesting and lovely people who have all been very supportive about my blog and encouraged my passion for the subject of nutrition.  I’m looking forward to blogging over the next 12 months, sharing knowledge and continuing to find my social media voice.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year from Nutritionval.com
