I haven’t written a blogging-related post in awhile. I’ve posted a lot about technical issues associated with blogging, but those posts were geared more towards bloggers. Today’s post is a reflection of things I’ve noticed when reading blogs. Granted, the advice is still geared towards those people writing the blogs, but let me know in the comments if you’ve had similar experiences when reading through a post. People are busy. Many blog readers, myself included, won’t dive in depth into every post. Many times they will skim the content, share it if it’s convenient or relevant, and move on. Based on… View Post

Ok ok, that title may be a little overdramatic. In all honesty, though, a simple social network has truly brought me so many gifts. A little over a year ago, I decided that I wanted to focus on growing my Instagram account.

Then I said F it. I rushed my early posts to get done… View Post

Happy Monday! Last week and part of the weekend I spent in Indianapolis for this year’s Fitbloggin’ conference. All my travel is finally done for July and I can settle back into a normal work schedule. Wait, is that a good thing? I have a special place in my heart for Fitbloggin’. It’s the first conference I ever went to and where I met people like Katy, Lindsay, and Monica. I made new friends that I still have to this day and it showed me how incredible the blogging world and community could be. Flashback: Fitbloggin Recap Part One Fitbloggin… View Post
