Well, April is now over and so is the Wego Health Activist month of prompts. I started late, missed a week and skipped a few prompts that didn’t really appeal to me but I am glad I took a shot and did the month. I think I got a few good blogs and a few new people to follow on twitter.

  • My favorite blog I wrote was Get Excited. It is always nice to reflect on the little things that make you happy. It helps bring you back when you get upset about your health issues, which I have done a lot lately.
  • I think the Wordle blog was most fun. I did mine quickly so I didn’t include a lot of words but I liked the result.
  • I think the blog that got the most reactions was my cheesy Health Tagline. It was pretty popular on twitter and got a few comments as well.

I am not done writing about my health (and fitness) but it probably won’t be as often or as focused. I really liked having the prompts. It got me thinking about new ways to write about my celiac disease and gave me options. As I said, there were a few prompts I didn’t think applied to me so I just skipped those days.

Hopefully next April I can get in at the start. I had received the email but it got lost with everything else I was dealing with at the time. I think the prompts and month-long focus really helps those of us with health problems to focus and write about it and help spread the word. There are so many diseases and issues out there that aren’t well-known or well understood by those who aren’t affected. Wego really helps to get the word out.
