First of all, I hope you had a great start to the new year and that, like myself, you have some kind of plan for the months to follow. You might have certain targets that you are aiming for in terms of your education, your career or your home life. If you do, feel free to share them with me. I also have goals that I would like to reach by the end of this year. It would be interesting to compare them, don’t you think? In this post, I’m going to focus on my blog-related targets only. Thanks to a suggestion left in the comment section of my previous post, I was able to settle on a topic for the first Pure Therapy Clinic blog post of 2018. It would be about the beginning of the blog … and its future.
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? I began blogging for Pure Therapy Clinic for a number of reasons. I wanted to raise awareness of Hijama (cupping) therapy, not just in my home town but on a global scale. I wanted to draw attention to the art of healing that I had learnt and share its potential benefits with everyone, whether they could visit our clinic or not. As we like to say, everyone
needs deserves a detox from time to time. But not everyone knows that. And that is something I hope to change in the future.
As a blogger, I wanted to explain how Hijama therapy actually works – as in, what effect is has inside the human body – in a little more detail as well as address any misconceptions associated with it. Many cupping sites mention health problems that can be treated with the therapy. But few of them really delve into how it revitalises organs and other bodily tissues. The range of symptoms and health conditions that Hijama could counter was too wide to keep to myself. After training in a clinical setting, I was also anxious to share the dangers of malpractice and prevent anyone from putting themselves at risk by visiting ignorant or incompetent practitioners. Approximately a year later, I branched off into other health-related topics and started writing about personal experiences linked to Pure Therapy Clinic too. And that’s where we are today.
Now, where do I want to take this blog in the future? In terms of content, I’d like to touch on mental and emotional health. At Pure Therapy Clinic, we view our patients holistically, meaning that we base their treatment not only on their physical condition but on their individual psychological and social states too. We believe that each one is intricately connected to and capable of having a knock-on effect on the other. I’m looking for more cupping therapists and health bloggers that want to collaborate in the form of guest posts and maybe interviews. So if you run a Hijama or health blog, do give me a shout. We might be able to create something interesting together. One of my main targets is reaching the 100th post mark. This is the 80th Pure Therapy Clinic blog post that you’re reading right now. I just have to write another 20 posts and I’ll make it. Now all I need are more ideas …
That’s what I hope to achieve on my end. However, my next four goals are dependent on you. Yes, you. As I wrote in my last post, my aim is to reach 50 followers. However, it seems that I failed to mention something important. That’s my follower goal for the 1st April. There are so many of you out there so I’m going to share my targets for this year with you, in a clear lay-out, and hope for the best:
- 50 followers by April
- 100 followers by July
- 150 followers by October
- 200 followers by December
Connecting with 200 of you before 2019 will make me so happy. Right now, out of the 150 + people that read this blog, I only recognise 26 of you (Thank you so much for your support, by the way. I’m grateful even if I do sound greedy). If each one of you follows me – even if it’s by email – I could reach 3 out of my 4 follower goals easily. And that’s without you sharing these posts with people that you know. I’ve changed the face of the blog a little so that the colour reflects Pure Therapy Clinic better that before. I also replaced the image at the top of the page with a photo of my favourite treatment room and made the font easier to read. Were any of those a mistake?
I hope I can get to know every single one of you better this year. Will you help me?
