You Don't Need to Use Curse Words in Blog Posts

I don't care what you want to call it. It's idiotic. I hate reading a blog post with a bunch of f-bombs (or any curse words for that matter). It's like the author can't think of another way to express themselves so they lower their standards to speak as neanderthals. The story may be good but if the post contains a lot of profanity, I refuse to share it or like it, and it's highly doubtful I will come back to that blog ever again. ...more
I absolutely support a person voicing their opinion in their own blog. However, don't be ... more

You've Been Diagnosed with Celiac Disease... Now What?

Let’s talk about it: you’ve just been diagnosed with Celiac disease and finally all of your problems have a name. You are not crazy. You are not depressed. It's just that your body is attacking your intestines for no other reason that it considers gluten an enemy.

A chance to eat better, to finally know what’s wrong and do something about it. ...more
