Daylight savings is here and it is officially spring…that means only one thing – Spring cleaning!  And what better way to celebrate than to finally have the new blog redesign live!

It’s been a lot of work, as well as a lot of pain (I lost a lot of posts in the archive during WordPress upgrade and transfer).  Grrrr!  Lesson learned though. 

I still have a lot of the posts as Microsoft Word document rough drafts, so I’m not too bummed out about it, but will take some time to get them back up on the blog with images, links, etc.  I’m going to try and roll a few of them out each week, based on my schedule. 

Also, I stepped up my social media game so you have more direct access to me.  Anyone who knows me, I’m rarely on it because of my schedule, however I’ve now adapted my schedule to include it, so you’re going to get a ton of great high value info, education and tips on a daily basis through all my social media arenas.  If you don’t follow me on Instagram already, i’ll usually be updating this first and foremost, followed by a blog post.  

You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter as well, where I update my favorite articles, studies and research I read each day.

As for the blog redesign itself, it has some cool stuff we did, including:

1.  A lot of awesome I’m giving out if you want to join the community, including free access to the “Ask Jon” area for an introductory time period:   Check it out here.

2.  The blog area itself I specifically wanted larger images because a lot of the detail are in the photos, especially the food-related and farmers market posts.   

3.  The blog is now connected to the store – check out where you can learn more about the protocols I’ve created and the highest quality products I recommend and use in my own body (the vitamin/supplement industry is NOT regulated and loaded with junk that can destroy your body).

4.  We’ve created an affiliate area, so if your interested in offering my protocols and products on your own website, social media sites, etc. we can get you setup with your own account.  Right now, use the contact page form to get in touch if you are interested in this.  Just an FYI, I’m really looking for people who are passionate about a health/fitness-lifestyle, not just any ol’ person looking to make a buck.  Please include your website or blog when you contact us.

5.  The blog is iPad and iPhone-ready and friendly!   Try it out!   Also, the short URL and redirect is:

6.  The “Ask Jon” section is now available, and will be an exclusive members-only community area.  It’s also free…right now!  We’re going to integrate the members-only section for a small fee each month where you can ask me everything and anything health, fitness, lifestyle etc.. however, as part of the new relaunch, it will be free only for a limited time.  So signup, you’ve got nothing to lose and you’ll save some pesos during the intro period!  After the introductory period, it will cost money each month to have access to it; and when you sign up now, you’ll get access to it not only this month, but for 1 full year without having to pay.  Pretty sweet deal I would say – really just trying to grow the community so offering my access and attention at no cost to you.  win-win.

So that is that.. what do you think of it?  Overall the goal was just to give it a nice clean, user friendly appearance.  Not too many links, zero outside advertisements (not into that stuff, you?), a simple navigation at the top right, social icons on the side, simplified Topics area, and an emphasis on a larger blog area for high quality pics.

Feel free to peruse and hope you enjoy!
