In our weekly Friday Feature, we share a 5-question interview with one of the fantastic members of HealthyLivingBlogs.com. Take the time to get to know your co-members, pick up tips and tricks, blogging know-how, and recommendations from your fellow bloggers. If you’re an HLB member and haven’t gotten your interview email yet, don’t worry, you will in time! We’re working our way through a list of 2,000+ members’ blogs at random.
1. What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?
I’m Molly Robson from The Particular Kitchen. My sister-in-law helped me to create my blog title in order to reflect the healthful wholesome recipes I write.
2. What’s one goal you’re working towards right now?
My husband and I are moving across the Atlantic (from London to Boston) this July, so right now I’m focused on making a smooth transition with my nutrition consulting business.
3. What are ten words that apply to you and your healthy living journey?
Sharing healthy eating knowledge and inspiration on a global scale!
4. How would you describe your blogging style?
My blogging style is a mixture of nutrition tips and healthy recipes incorporating simple ingredients. I write on impulse – while I think I’m quite organized in many aspects of my life, when it comes to writing I tend to wing it.
5. What is your tagline and why?
‘Make the best food choices for your health’. I came up with this tagline mostly because of the word "choices". Every day, for the majority of the population, we have many opportunities to choose the foods we eat and the beverages we drink. I’d like to inspire people to make those decisions mindfully, asking "How will this meal benefit me?" every time they are faced with one.
6. What is something about you that would shock us?
I smoked for 8 years. I certainly wasn’t the poster girl for health through my college and post-grad days, but that all changed in 2008. Quitting was difficult — it was also the easiest decision I ever made, thanks to the motivation of my cigarette-loathing husband! I know many ex-smokers say they still miss it. I have to say there hasn’t been one moment since then where I’ve wanted to light up – although I’ve had a few of those realistic dreams where I woke up terrified that I’d really had a cigarette!
