Whoa, what a busy and interesting second half of the year. Now at year’s end, it’s a good time to look back and remember some things that friends and followers found important, and view the picture as a whole. Around June, Natural Tasty Chef took action to become more active with our blog, to try to make it consistent, relevant, interesting, and most of all valuable for those who read it. A simple definition of blogging is “the act of creating short-form content,” but it seems so much more when you’re in a business like ours that focuses on healthy eating and basically living healthy lifestyles all the way around.
We think we made a good decision back in June, and are proud of the package of blog posts that we believe people can continue to use into the months ahead (it’s not too early to start getting in shape for summer!). As we look back at the most popular posts, or ones we are rather proud of, questions surface. Did we offer a broad selection of articles, with topics to attract and elicit engagement with most who visit our website? Did our readers try any recipes or suggestions? If so, we sure would like to hear about their experience.
Probably most important: did we help people, whether it means to feel better about themselves, to get healthier, or even to start a new path in life. Helping people, after all, is a primary thrust of Natural Tasty Chef. We hope you enjoyed the posts the past half-year, and that you stay with us as we move forward into 2016 and beyond!
