What is FitBloggin’ to you?
I’ve never felt more at home than I do surrounded by all the love and support at FitBloggin’.
How has the FitBloggin’ community impacted your own life?
More than I will ever be able to put into words. When I started FitBloggin’ in 2010 I never imagined it would become anything more than a few bloggers getting together for a day. Six years later and it’s still going strong? How is that even possible?
Have you had a weight loss success story?
How has blogging changed and how is the FitBloggin’ community influencing that?
Blogging is constantly changing. When I started it was all about the documenting, at least for me. All my online interaction came from message boards not social media. Now social media almost trumps my blog.
I have much more fun sharing and interacting in the real time environments of Facebook or Twitter than I do in the comment section of my blog. Yet the blog still gives me a place to journal and express myself more deeply. I wrote about this here recently: Is Blogging Dead?
Has the social media community changed wellness/fitness for the better or worse, and how?
I’m not sure, to be honest. Some people may say better, others worse, but I don’t fall into either camp. Sometimes change is just change. It is what it is and I will continue to express myself online and ride the waves of social media change.
What keeps you coming back to FitBloggin’?
The people. It’s why I kept it running as long as I did and why I will continue to support it as much as I can.
What is your best tip for blogging/social media success?
Three words: Consistency, transparency, passion.
What’s your fitness sweet spot?
CrossFit. I drank the cool aide people. I can’t help it. I love the challenge and after three years I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been in my entire life.
What’s your personal fun fact?
I have an unhealthy obsession with popcorn and scary movies.
What are you most looking forward to about FitBloggin’ 2016 in Indianapolis?
Not working it! Is that too honest? I just want to hang with everyone without any responsibilities!!
