With the New Year beginning tomorrow, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for making 2013 so amazing—and to review many of the exciting things we have in store for you in 2014.
In a moment, I’ll go through each area, and I encourage you to post questions, thoughts and feedback about how we can better serve you in any way possible. Remember always that this blog is for you! Thus, we want everything we do and share to be aligned and in harmony with what will help you evolve this year and beyond.
The KimberlySnyder.net Blog
The first thing we have planned for 2014 is much more content. Of course, we’ll continue to cover important health topics, beauty, detox, research, organic plant foods, recipes and so much more. But we also plan to expand further into other areas, including personal empowerment, love and relationships, inner health/well being, and a variety of other considerations that affect your growth as a whole person.
One way we’ll accomplish this is by bringing new writers onto the team. These will be smart, well-educated writers (from Stanford and other highly respected Universities) who are very health-conscious and fully aligned with the vision we have.
As our blog’s overall post frequency increases from a few times a week and moves toward posting every day—my own posts will often focus on more personal insights and observations as I live, travel and move through this beautiful world. My recent post about Africa is a perfect example of that, and I’m so thankful for the inspiration it brought to so many readers.
Note: even though our post frequency will go up, our emails to you will actually go down—and you’ll typically get a summary email from me at the beginning and end of each week. Because not every post will be accompanied an email, I encourage you to check back with the blog each day, as well as pay extra attention to our social activity—so that you always see our new posts.
Realize Yourself Movement
Over the last several months, we’ve begun to communicate more about the “Realize Yourself” movement and process. These two words are the simplest yet most profound way to understand the mission for this blog and all that we do. Everything—from the Glowing Green Smoothie (#GGS) to Beauty Detox Foods to yoga and more—helps point toward greater self realization.
The process looks like this:
I’ll explain how you can learn more about this process in just a moment, but for now, just recognize that it doesn’t where you are in your journey or where you start—the most critical step is to just get started! Move!
As you do that, you’ll find you evolve on your journey and realize progressively greater levels of your own inner power. Thus, the “Realize Yourself” message and movement is how we plan to help you experience greater empowerment on every level.
One of the ways we’ll support you in that is by offering new tools, including a podcast and more active YouTube channel. Both cover critical aspects of the process, and we’d LOVE your input on topics for future podcasts and YouTube videos. Please leave them in the comments section below.
Another really powerful tool in the works is the community forum section of our site—which will be where you can interact with others in the community, get questions answered, share experiences (and recipes!)—and so much more. We’ve had many requests for this feature, yet we want this community aspect to be connected to the blog and its activity. This section of the blog will be ready in the next 30-60 days, and we will let you know as soon as it is ready.
Be Sure You Check KimberlySnyder.com
We’ve discussed the blog at length, but what about KimberlySnyder.com? You might be wondering, “Why does that separate website exist?”
The answer is simple: our .com site currently holds our products and store, where you can currently go and purchase Probiotics+ and our Infrared Sauna. Many more products will be added throughout this year, as we fill up our store with life-changing products.
Another aspect of KimberlySnyder.com that will be coming soon is all the “Realization Elements”—including biotics, detox, gear, learn, charity and so much more. We’ll also soon share a more in-depth explanation for the three stages that you go through as you progress toward realizing our inner power in this way.
I encourage you to check back to that site often.
Much More Activity on Social
In 2014, social will become an even bigger part of what we do—and we’ll treat each platform as its own unique channel for sharing, informing and inspiring you to be your best. You already know all the main ones:
On our Facebook page, we’ll inform you of new blog posts and major happenings in the community, share inspirational pictures and messages, and also take opportunities to lighten the mood with more humor. Yes, health is not always so serious, and you can expect to see more fun, light-hearted Facebook posts from us each week.
Instagram is almost entirely mobile, and very picture-driven—more so than any other platform. Our account has been exploding lately, and we share a ton of fun, uplifting pictures and captions each day that can help keep your mind focused on the right things. My current Instagram handle is @kimberlysnyder1 and I encourage you to follow me there.
I’ll be the first to admit, our Twitter feed needs some love! Slowly but surely, however, we’ve been getting more active on Twitter and realize its power more now. On Twitter, we’ll be sharing more information, including links to informative articles, research studies, powerful quotes, and snippets of wisdom that can make a difference in your health. My Twitter handle is @kimsbeautydetox and I promise you’ll benefit tremendously from what we tweet out each day!
We’re still learning about how to best use our Pinterest page, and would actually love input and suggestions from anyone—especially active Pinterest users. What pins would you like to see? How often should we pin? Any other ideas? It’s clear that Pinterest is a powerful platform and here to stay, and we’re excited about sharing more this year.
Of course, many of these social platforms have a certain amount of crossover—meaning that images or links from one platform may get posted to another. Still, we’re going to do our best to use each platform as its own distinct channel, so you get very different kinds of value from following us on each one.
Everything Is Interconnected
I know we’ve covered a lot in this post, and 2014 is sure to be an amazing year here on the blog. From all the additional content… new tools for growth and evolution… more amazing products… expanded social activity and more—everything will be interwoven into one seamless, transformative experience. With all that’s happening and coming soon, I’ve never been more excited than I am right now!
I’m so unbelievably grateful that you’re part of this community, and I want nothing more than to use everything we’ve discussed today in ways that deepen and inspire your growth this year and beyond.
One last thing: Later this week, we’ll be posting a brand-new free report, titled “7 Steps for a Breakthrough 2014”—which focuses on little-know tips for making this year your best ever. With this report, you’ll go beyond the inevitable plateaus and letdowns most people experience after they make resolutions, and you’ll achieve your goals more surely and effortlessly.
I can’t wait for you to read it—and will let you know the moment this new report is ready for you to download.
Thanks so much, and Happy New Year!
