Do you have a post about blog tricks, awesome plugins, social media strategies or other tips you’d like to share with the Healthy Living Blogs community? Give your great content more visibility [or promote your online services!] by submitting it to our Blog Tip series. We love to send more eyes to your site by leading readers to your posts about blogging, social media, and all things internet. Send us links to the post(s) you already have published on your site or pitch ideas for new content to healthylivingblogs at gmail.com to be considered for a feature in a future BTT column.
Are you a food blogger with a focus on healthy recipes looking to join a group of like-minded bloggers? The Recipe Redux is the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians. Founded on the belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious, we are reinventing the idea of healthy eating with a taste-first approach. Each month you’ll be presented with a new challenge and everyone posts their creations on a designated day. Learn more and sign up to join us here.
