Things they are a-changin!  Over the next several months, you’ll definitely see some new things showing up over here.  We’ve been through this before – both on this site and on our own personal blogs and projects; we know how it goes.  We know that ideas that seem great today, may not seem so great in a few months.  We know at least one thing we change without effort will undoubtedly bring us to a new level of success somehow.  We know that some changes will be loved, and others will bring criticism.  We appreciate your support and patience as we at HealthyLivingBlogs.com shift things around a bit.  We also love your feed back!  Email us anytime at healthylivingblogs@gmail.com.

Speaking of changes taking place, we’re excited to announce this collaboration:
