Mindful Momma got a makeover! Three new reasons to follow Mindful Momma – a blog about creating a healthy, natural lifestyle that works for you!
If you’re a regular Mindful Momma reader, you’ve probably noticed a brand new look around here. After 10 years, I thought it was time for a little makeover! So I spruced things up with a pretty new logo, and added a nice, new welcome mat on the home page – to make it easier to understand what Mindful Momma is all about.
Behind the scenes, I’ve been making some other changes too – in the types of content I cover and the way I write my posts. All these changes are designed to serve you better – because YOU are why I’m here my friend! I’m hoping you’ll agree with these 3 new reasons to follow Mindful Momma!
Ten years ago, when Mindful Momma began, the blog was more like an online diary – sharing my adventures living a green & healthy lifestyle, while raising my 2 young boys. Now I view Mindful Momma as a business and a resource – intended to help others live a more natural, healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle.
My #1 goal at Mindful Momma is to be extremely helpful – specifically to provide well researched information and inspiration to help you live the healthy, natural lifestyle that works for you.
I want to solve your biggest problems and help you navigate lifestyle changes that still work within your budget and your crazy busy life! But in order to do that, I need to know what they are! So please let me know – by leaving a comment on this post or sending me a personal email at [email protected] I’m serious, I want to know!
New blog post format
To make my blog posts more helpful, I’m bringing in some consistency to my format.
For most posts you’ll see a section talking about Why It Matters. This will help you understand the health or environmental risks of doing things the conventional way. Then you’ll find a Solutions Section – how to make changes and what to look for instead. Finally, you’ll often find a section sharing Better Products – these are healthy, non-toxic, eco-friendly products that are a safe & natural solution to the problem. I’ll also be sharing valuable charts, shopping lists and other printables in my Resource Library – for those of you who join my mailing list.
New blog design
The real reason I needed to update my blog design was to be mobile friendly – because I know the majority of you are reading this on your mobile device. Google is now penalizing websites that are not mobile friendly – and I certainly don’t want my content to get buried at the bottom of a search list because my blog wasn’t optimized for mobile.
My new logo and tagline – Simple Solutions for Natural Living – are a better reflection of what Mindful Momma is all about these days. I love the way the design from Jumping Jax Designs turned out!
As long as I was updating the design of my blog, I wanted to make Mindful Momma easier to understand and to navigate. All posts now fit into one of 3 categories – Healthy Food, Non Toxic Beauty and Natural Living. This makes it easier to dig deeper for the information that helps you!
Be sure to check out my Marketplace too! It isn’t new, but I’ve been updating it – and will continue to do whenever I find great new brands to share!
