Some words from our Special Guest, Bo Novak – Women’s Health Blogger
Having been an avid reader of many wonderful blogs (mainly in the areas of social commentary, politics, vegan food, animal rights, health and women’s issues), I ventured into blogging myself in July 2011. PMS Warrior was set up by the Webmistress using the WordPress Twenty Ten theme. It is a niche, blog-driven website raising awareness one aspect of women’s health – Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) – and how it is connected to diet and lifestyle.
I am a longtime member of the National Association for Premenstrual Syndrome (NAPS) and have overcome PMS myself using natural methods. Through the blog, I wanted to help dispel some of the myths surrounding it, collate the available evidence, communicate with sufferers and work through my own thoughts about it. The blog is a mainly vehicle for reputation building and for building a following for when I am due to complete my formal training in nutrition. I am also an active Tweeter as @PMS_Warrior, and I maintain a PMS Warrior Facebook page too (somewhat less enthusiastically).
PMS is very common, affecting around 30% of women to a significant degree and my blog has attracted links and mentions from thefworduk.org.uk and Dr Christian Jessen (the TV doctor), and I have guest blogged for Beautiful Heart, Raw Kitchen. I was also recently quoted on www.netdoctor.co.uk which has a very high level of traffic. In the last month, 2,585 people visited my site – even though the frequency of posts I have written has reduced of late. Eight months on, I’ve learned lots of lessons about how blogging ‘works’, and have big plans for the future development of my site.
