Blog

Welcome To My Blog!

My blog is about anything and everything that happens in my life that I feel compelled to share. It’s quite random if I’m perfectly honest. My blog doesn’t fall in a set category and it’s a little all over the place. I like to think that there is a little bit of something for everyone. To explain, I’m going to share the titles of my last 20 blogs. One look at these titles should sum up everything you need to know about my blog style.

As you can see it’s a little bit of everything. There is quite a fine balance between serious blogs and just silly old fun. I love that and I never want to lose that. I truly enjoy writing for this blog just as much as I love writing stories of other characters and their worlds. Writing content for my website truly makes my day and seeing your response is a feeling I can’t even begin to explain. If I have to give it one word it would be; happiness. It makes me so happy to write and even more so if my writing can help someone. Even if it only put a small smile on their face. Or allow them to feel less alone. Thank you for supporting me.

I’m going to try my utmost best to explain all the categories so you can access any blog on the topic you desire with relative ease.

Fitness

Underneath the Fitness category, you will find three subcategories.

Each subcategory has a wide range of content. I strive to make my website as easy to navigate as humanly possible. Under the Fitness Tips subcategory, you will find my favorite full body workouts and my 30-day challenges. Under the Bicycle Tour subcategory, you will find all of the details you would ever need to know about the bicycle tour that has yet to happen. Under the Plain Old Fitness Content subcategory, you will find content where I discuss my future fitness regime plans or more workouts I enjoy.

The Fitness category itself on my website can be a bit quiet at times but I have some plans regarding the future of this aspect of my blog. I wouldn’t necessarily call my blog a fitness blog so if you’re really interested in the topic, I recommend you search elsewhere. I like these two YouTube channels for all of my fitness knowledge but there is so much more available. I encourage you to always do a little extra research to ensure the information you’re getting is correct.

Nutrition heading.png

Nutrition

Underneath the Nutrition category, you will find four subcategories.

Each subcategory has a wide range of content. Under the Celiac Disease subcategory, you will find my experience with the autoimmune disease. I share travel trips, my story, and even some recipes. Under the Recipes subcategory, you will find: you guessed it! Recipes! The title of this one kind of speaks for itself. Under the Nutrition Class subcategory, you will find a series of blogs where I discuss my experience and response to what I learned in a Nutrition Course on the website edX. I discuss the overall content of the course and share some of what I learned. It’s probably the most technical thing I have on my website. As I’m no longer pursuing a career in Nutrition, I’m not sure how much this subcategory will grow moving forward. Under the Plain Old Nutrition Content subcategory, you will find my experience with my overuse of candy and future plans regarding my nutrition plan.

GENERAL LIFE HEADING.png

General Life

Underneath the General Life category, you will find five subcategories.

Each subcategory has a wide range of content. Under the Dutch subcategory, you will find my experience and stories about my life here in the Netherlands. I also discuss how I’m learning the Dutch language and my experience with the NT2 exam. I will also share my experience with the immigration exam, my knowledge of the VISA process. I will definitely write a blog about the dreaded driver’s license experience. Under the Making A House A Home (DIY and More) subcategory you will find my experience with the renovations that we did on our first home. I walk you through the highs and the lows of the experience and share my tips. I also share the how-to on some of the features in the house so you too could recreate it if you wish to do so. As we’ve just hit the one year mark, I can confidently say that this subcategory will still be alive with content. I doubt we will ever be finished with this home. Under the Animals subcategory, you will find anything related to my furbabies. Speculoos and Dankie are my precious furbabies and I love them so much. Wait, here is a picture of them. You can tell they’re brothers. I can just see the resemblance from their younger days.

Under the Education subcategory, you will find anything related to the Education aspect of my life. This is where I will most likely share when I eventually get around to completing another course on edX. If I ever decide to get my degree, I will definitely share about it underneath this category. Under the Other subcategory, you will find anything and everything that’s related to my general day to day life that I can’t fit under any other subcategories. Here I will discuss the future of the blog and that’s about it. I’m sure this subcategory will continue to grow as my entire writing style for this blog is to write anything that floats my boat.

STORY TIME HEADING.png

Story Time

The Story Time category is simply just a collection of short stories of my life that I felt compelled to share. It can be something silly or something serious. It’s such a wide ranged of topics that it’s incredibly hard to truly describe it.

BODY AND SOUL HEADING.png

Body And Soul

Underneath the Body And Soul category, you will find four subcategories.

Under the Body Love subcategory, you will find a very raw share with my struggles with accepting my body, loving the roles and coming to terms with the weight gain. Under the Mental Health subcategory, you will find anything related to my mental health. I’ve shared my struggles with depression and coming to terms with my abusive past. It’s a very important subject for me and I’m so grateful that I have the platform where I feel safe to share this. Under the PCOS subcategory, you will find everything related to my PCOS struggles. I talk about my story, the supplements I take, what books I like, what life changes I’ve made and etc. Under the Self Love subcategory, you will find anything related to accepting myself faults and all and learning how to love and care for myself in a deeper soulful level.

GOOD OLD FUN HEADING.png

Good Old Fun

Underneath the Good Old Fun category, you will find three subcategories.

Under the Sims 4 Meals subcategory, you will find my remaking Sims 4 challenge. It’s a blog series I’ve created. The simple explanation is that I remake Sims 4 meals and write a blog about the experience. Click here for the long explanation. Under the Review subcategory, you will find my reviews. This is still a new blog series but the plan is to review different subjects. It’s quite random. I will review a website, a service, a restaurant, a book, a movie, a series and products. Anything really. Under the Guest Blog subcategory, you will find my guest blogs. It’s basically blogs written by someone else that I feel compelled to share.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and I will see you in a click!
