Launch of a New Blog
Written by: Eileen Lonergan
I was contacted by the very sweet Alanna Wong to help her revamp her blog, AlannaWongLife.com. Alanna lives with a rare, yet potentially overwhelming sleep disorder called KLS (Klein-Levin Syndrome). As I learned from watching her on the Anderson Cooper show, someone in a KLS episode can sleep for 23 hours a day. Alanna is using her expierance and her amazing strength and outlook to help others to stay strong, find happiness and get inspired. Let’s face it, we all need a little push or a cheerleader now and again, and I think this blog will help you find some mojo and remind you to count your blessings on a regular basis.
For the blog I used the Genesis framework for WordPress, and then layered in the Fremedy skin (which is free). I used MailChimp to set up her email subscription forms. I recently wrote a few posts on MailChimp that you may find helpful:
- Customize the sign up form with MailChimp
- How to set up a Pop Up Subscription form with MailChimp
- How to configure Auto Responders with MailChimp
If you know of someone with KLS, by all means direct them to Alanna and sign up for her email list. You will be given valuable information on the disorder and strategies for coping and finding your inner strength.
If you have any questions on Genesis or Fremedy, please be in touch, email@example.com.
