Is Anything Missing from the Blogosphere?

Hey All,

So I have a little blog going along with the website for my about-to-start nutrition consulting practice.

There are some things I've already included and will continue to include, like book & product reviews, and recipes. I've also done a couple of posts about the biochemistry of fats, but I'm starting to realize that what I'd ultimately end up doing is offering slightly watered-down versions of what people like Chris Masterjohn and Chris Kresser have already provided excellently. Even though lay people can certainly read and understand that kind of work, I also think there's still a place for making some of it more accessible to lay people...based in the same underlying science, but the language/explanations could be a little more down to earth. (Kresser is better at this than Masterjohn, IMHO, but please let me emphasize that I am not denigrating either of them. I look to both as superb sources of information on a huge array of topics.)

So, my question is, is there anything missing from the Paleo/Primal or just plain "real food" blog world that you'd like to see more attention given to? Anything that jumps out at you as going largely unaddressed?

I'm more than happy to blog about my personal experiences, journal articles I read, or anything else that sparks my interest. I guess I just wanted to see if there's anything you specifically would like to see in a new internet presence.

(Keep in mind that I'm a complete amateur when it comes to the web...right now I just a have one of those humble free sites on blogger. Seriously...the fact that I have a site at all is huge progress for me and I'm okay with it looking...well...amateurish, for now.) Also, I'm not necessarily looking to become a "personality," guru, or Paleo celebrity. I'd like to have a nice impact locally, on my individual clients. If I happen to have an influence beyond that, that'd be awesome, but my primary goal isn't to have an international following...at least not yet.) ;-) If it makes any difference, I'm a 34-yr old female, started with your standard low-carb approach in 2005, had great success with that for years, and have worked my way closer to Primal/WAPF during the last 3 years. (Still relatively LC, probably under 100g/day.) Air Force veteran, got a master's in nutrition when I realized I could make a career helping other people who, like me, were "doing all the right things" but still weren't losing weight or improving their health. (I'm also a cancer and like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain...LOL...just kidding.)

Thanks for any ideas! (Even if it's just "Write about whatever the heck you feel like writing about!" That's a legitimate answer, I think.)

Write about your strongest subjects, everything else will fall into place.

I would add just to bring what you learn from your practice to your writing. I enjoy the insights you can only get from someone in a clinical setting.

Good luck with your practice!
