In all honesty, I believe I started this about a year ago. I made sure to get the domain name & that was it. Then a couple of months later, checked out themes/templates…..and again, everything came to a stop. And I’ll tell ya why! Because this whole venture was so foreign to me!! Oh my ~ this was probably the most frustrating thing I’ve ever done!!!
What the heck are widgets? And what are plugins? What’s the difference between a Header, Top Page, Home Top and ….what’s a sidebar??? Once I kind of found my way around things, I had to figure out how to get my info into those areas! I had people tell me, “Oh, those templates make it easy to just get your site up and running in no time.” Well, I will debate that statement any day of the week. I’m certain it was a no-brainer for some but for someone like me, who only knew how to send an email, post a status on facebook or put a picture on instagram, it was mind blowing!
…. I digress — why blog? Well, because of YOU! I’ve had several messages and people asking, “Do have a blog? Why not? What’s your website name? Can you share recipe?” Etc. and so on. So fast forward a year……I bring you my website 🙂
I am definitely a babbler. My hubby, Peter says quite often, “Wow. How much coffee have you had?” It’s not the coffee, it’s just me….talking about ‘much ado about nothing’. And sometimes I’ll end my little story with, “Well, I don’t know why I told you that….” but 9x out of 10, it’s just because I like to talk. All that being said, posting pictures on instagram became a tad frustrating because I found myself editing my post as I realized how long I had commented on a picture…..and then of course, I wondered if I should post the detailed recipe or just a snippet of what I did/used. Well now, I can just direct y’all to this site for the recipe and/or more babble on the subject.
Btw – all of my pictures are taken with my iphone. I know….kind of a real cavegirl, right? When will I upgrade to a big girl camera?? Someday, soon – I hope! But for now, this is it. I figured if I waited til I got a real camera, this blog may have been put off another year! So thanks for your patience in advance with mediocre pics 🙂
If you take a look around the site, I have added a couple of tabs that are on a more personal level – COCOS FAVS & WHAT I’M UP TO. The page, ‘Cocos Favs’ are for those who want to know more about what I use/like and recommend, whether it be food related or otherwise. ‘What I’m Up To’ is a page directly related to things I’m up to in life. It may or may not be something that has to do with health/fitness, food or personal things going on. Just thought that would be fun for some!
To find out more about me and why I chose this way to fuel my body, you can read it all on the ABOUT ME page.
So THANK YOU ALL for showing up here! Bare with me as I add more content and maneuver my way around…..making this site into hopefully, a thriving blog! Please share with your friends & family. And if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a message in KEEP IN TOUCH area.
Thanks again!!! Wish me luck 🙂
