My blog is about wellness, well-being, and wholeness, however they show up in our bodies, minds, hearts, and/or spirits (which of course aren’t separate at all), as good share-worthy information appears in my life in various forms, from articles on the latest scientific findings, to spirituality, recipes, poems, book and film reviews, musings, and more.
I started writing this, my second blog, about meditation and my intent and practice of sitting daily, at the very end of 2009. (My first blog was just for practice.) During 2010, I also wrote on yoga and breathing. Later I began adding posts about other topics related to well-being.
By the end of 2010, it seemed obvious that the blog had become more about well-being than about meditation. I renamed the blog (from The Zafu Report to The Well: bodymindheartspirit) and gave it a new look as well.
Actually, I’m making it all up as I go along, sharing what inspires and motivates and informs and expands me with you, the interesting people who find this corner of the Internet and become readers.
I love blogging and would do (and have done) it for free! Making some money at it is even better. I make a small amount of money when you click links in blog posts that go to Amazon.com and purchase something. I am so not getting rich or even making anything close to minimum wage compared to the time spent running this blog site, however. If you like this blog and need to purchase something on Amazon, if you click a link like this to enter Amazon, any purchase you then make will help support this blog, at no extra cost to you.
I have run WordAds in the past, until the day I saw an ad for McDonald’s — which with its corporate empire of fast food profits and lack of attention to customers’ health as well as that of the planet — is about as opposite as this blog as possible. I don’t have any control over which WordAds appear, and I never got enough views to receive a check.
If your small, health-oriented, sustainable company would like to run a custom ad here because it would serve my readers, please contact me.
I love getting comments on my blog posts!
I write in solitude while imagining real people sharing my interest in what I write. To actually get relevant feedback from a real person who connected with something I wrote feels very sweet.

Media inquiries: Because this blog has been relatively successful, I have received requests to allow guest-posts on health-related topics, usually from support groups for specific illnesses. Although I may republish a blog post that seems relevant to the mission of this blog, I do not generally allow guest posting.
