Get Connected To Other Raw Foodies

Do you sometimes feel like you are the only one trying to eat healthy?  Well, I do!  It is hard sometimes, because people make their little snide remarks and often times these very same people are overweight and sickly.  I have found more support online then in my immediate circle of family and friends.  Below are some ways I have connected with other raw foodies online.

 Ways You Can Connect with Other Raw Foodies

  1. Sign up for a twitter/facebook account.  This is a great place to meet others.  You can do a word search and find many people sharing information about raw foods.
  2. Create a blog.  Post to your blog and find other blogs in your niche. Comment on those blogs in your niche and add them to your blogroll/blog list.
  3. Join a social ning.  Raw Fu and Give it to me Raw are good places to start. 
  4. Sign up for a YouTube account.  You can find people on YouTube who are documenting their raw food journeys and sharing helpful information about raw foods.  Subscribe to those channels and leave comments. 
  5. Listen to BlogTalkRadio Shows.   You can find some very informative shows on BTR. If you want to participate in the BTR show discussions online, then it is a good idea to create an account. 
  6. Don't be shy.  When you find someone who shares your interests, connect with them by following them on twitter/facebook, following/subscribing to their blog RSS feed, subscribe to YouTube channels,  try leaving a few comments along the way and if possible, send them an email/message. This will let the other person know that you are interested in what they are saying and it will also help open the lines of communication.
 That's all folks!  Have an awesome weekend!  :-)
