HLBBadgeRemember last week when I shared a bit about HLB and our growing and expanding and our excitement to do more?  Well, great news: we’re happy to announce the addition of two more Staffers joining the HLB Family: Mindy and Sarah!   Head on over to their blogs to get to know a bit about these wonderful ladies if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of knowing them.  I triple dog dare you to send a shout out congrats to them on twitter! @sarahzinkel and @grmindyjean 🙂

..ma ALL AROUND THE COMMUNITY

fitblogchatATTENTION ALL #FITBLOG Chatters! Starting this week, we are no longer using the live chat tool that had been on FitBlogChats.com. Although it has been an incredible feature, unfortunately the developers are no longer able to support it. We are instead going to use Tweetchat.com, which is another great way to filter tweets, etc.
Nothing else changes — we still have great topics, wonderful moderators and with your support, an amazing turnout every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.


fitness friday button

We are able to learn, share, motivate, inspire, grow and see results when we’re a part of a community.  That is why I started the Fitness Friday link-up.  I wanted to stay accountable with my workouts; I wanted to motivate others to live a healthy life; I wanted to be inspired to try something new through other’s workouts.

This is how it works: keep track of your workouts throughout the week and on Friday share it on your blog (or if you don’t blog – in the comments), add the link to the Fitness Friday linkup party on my published post on Talk Less, Say More, and share through social media with the #fitnessfriday hashtag.  The Fitness Friday button is available here.

HLBBadgeWe are so happy to share that HealthyLivingBlogs.com has been growing like WOAH! the past several months.  Over 1800 bloggers have signed up to become members of HLB since Lindsey launched the site in August of 2010.  The fact that so many of you are out there sharing the goodness that is HLB with your blends and followers is MAJORLY appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed. 

With a surge in activity, membership applications, and participation in all that HLB offers I felt it was time to expand the HLB Family.  I can’t do this on my own, and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to continuing working so closely with some of the people who helped in making my #HLS12 dreams come true.

Love Coconut Water? If so, then come check out our Rocket Hub campaign by clicking on the link below. With your help, we’ll be able to produce Coconut Warrior Coconut Water this Fall 2012. Not only do we want you to be able to taste and share our coconut water with one another, we want you to be a part of that creation process.clip_image004

By donating at least a dollar, we will automatically put your name on our website for all to see that you helped us create Coconut Warrior!  Please watch our short video so you can get to know us and learn more about Coconut Warrior!

  1. RocketHub is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from fans for rewards from me.
  2. It’s an All & More funding mechanism: if I don’t reach my financial goal I get to keep what I raise. But if I do reach my goal, I get access to exciting opportunities.

Ps – We only have 26 days left! So if you can’t afford to pledge, then please share with all your friends and family! Feel free to contact Kerry at kdon@coconutwarrior.com if you have any thoughts or questions.
