Chronic Christmas Chronicles

Chronic Christmas Chronicles


Feliz Natal...Merry Christmas... Joyeux Noël!... Fröhliche Weihnachten!... 


Veselé Vánoce!... З Різдвом Христовим!

Here you will find the Christmas Chronicles of people with Fibromyalgia.

Tales to help you with the Christmas and holiday season. 

We hope you find the time to read some stories as you will get

helpful ideas, an affinity with others who have a chronic

condition and something to laugh and ponder about.

Merry Christmas to all.

Shine A Light On Fibro - Fibro Friday week 204

This week we are continuing the theme Shine A Light on Fibro to help raise Fibromyalgia awareness. I think it is a good theme for all of December and hope you agree and can join in.

This week the image of an individual with a sparkler has been used because I really believe that in our own small way we can help more people understand about this invisible condition.

Thank you to everyone joining in and sharing on social media with #ShineALightOnFibro
Also thank you to everyone who joined it at last weeks Fibro Friday by visiting, sharing the posts and adding their own posts... There were some really wonderful articles there about many different aspects of Fibromyalgia including Chronic Mom's post The isolating and painful loneliness of life with a chronic illness.

How to promote your blog post

How to promote your blog post


Sometimes we are shy to sing our own praises and promote ourselves.

When you put so much time and effort into your blog this is not a sensible way to be.

Just for fun, I am suggesting we give the following a try...

Why not see how far you can boost one, just one, post?

WHY? - To drive traffic to your post and build awareness of your blog.

HOW?
- Pick a post of yours, that you think is really good, and promote it like mad.

Get out of your comfort zone and share it more than you usually would.

Here are my suggestions:
  • Share it on all your social media more than once. 
  • Send an email about it to your email list. 
  • Write to someone who you think may be interested in publishing it eg The Mighty. 
  • Share it on the Sunday Sharathon in our private facebook group. 
  • Share it all again... 
  • Check your numbers and see what impact you have made... decide was it worth it and will you do this again?? 
I think you may find that you get many more views to your post than you normally do if you spend at least as much time promoting your posts as you do writing them.

Assessing an increase in viewers is easy, building awareness of your blog is connected to that but is not as easy to assess. It would be great to hear back from you, in the comments, if these tactics work for you.

Fibro Friday week 203 Shine A Light On Fibro

This week we are continuing the theme Shine A Light on Fibro to help raise Fibromyalgia awareness. I think it is a good theme for all of December and hope you agree.

This week the image of an individual lighting a lamp has been chosen because I really believe that in our own small way we can help more people understand about this invisible condition.

Thank you to everyone joining in and sharing posts with #ShineALightOnFibro
Also thank you to everyone who joined it at last weeks Fibro Friday by visiting the post, sharing the posts and adding their own posts... There were some really wonderful articles there about many different aspects of FMS.
