Lo-Cal blogging?

I don’t often view HerGreenLife from the perspective of a reader.  Usually, I’m here on the back end of things, but every now and then, I like to check in and see what you see.

When I scrolled through the home page this morning, something in my tag cloud (the menu on the right-hand side of the page) jumped out a me.


“Eat Lo-Cal?”  What?!?  Since when was low-calorie eating a prominent topic on my blog?  Sure, I’m all about eating healthy, but “lo-cal” has never really been my thing.  My cooking tends to be full of healthy ingredients (vegetables, whole grains, lean vegetarian protein), but I also don’t skimp on the fat (primarily olive oil and organic butter).

It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that the tag in question was “eat local,” hyphenated, as in “locally grown food,” and NOT “eat lo-cal.”

March was also not a “lo-cal” blogging month.  In fact, I posted fifteen times this month, for an average of a post every two days, which is quite good.

HerGreenLife is on track to have the second best month ever (don’t think we’ll quite beat August 2012, but the month is not over yet!), in terms of page views, and knowing that, knowing that you are out there reading, encouraged me to keep writing.  Thank you!

    OK… that’s hilarious! How did you get it to un-hyphenate?

      Sometimes you have to laugh at yourself! (Though this may be karma coming for me after I laughed at mom while Skyping yesterday — we couldn’t see her on the display, and she finally realized that she had a sticky note over her computer’s camera.) I think it just depends on your computer display (and maybe browser?). It still appears hyphenated on my screen.

        Well, if it’s any comfort it’s not hyphenated for me. 🙂
