Yesterday being My Food ‘N’ Fitness Diaries’ first birthday got me thinking about how much my life has changed since I started my little corner of the blog world. It made me realize why I blog and why I continue to write day in and day out. I’ve never once felt like writing a post was an obligation. I get to share my life and my passion for healthy living with you all each and every day – what an honor! Even better? You keep reading along and supporting and encouraging me with each day that passes. You really are the best. I sincerely thank you!
So, why do I blog?
1. YOU ALL!
My readers make it totally worth it. The emails, the tweets, the comments – they make my day each and every day. Keep ‘em coming friends!
2. The friendships
The close friendships I’ve made through blogging is unbelievable. I look back and wonder how they were never in my life before this little blog. We just “get” each other, and I love that.
3. Inspiring others
There’s nothing better than when a reader emails me to let me know that I was able to inspire them to get into a fitness routine, eat healthier, or change their lifestyle for the better. It puts a big smile on my face every time!
4. Sharing my knowledge
I would consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable when it comes to the food and fitness world. It’s always an honor when I get to share what I’ve learned in an effort to help others reach their goals.
5. I love to write!
In high school and college, I would write a paper over taking a test any day. Writing has always come naturally to me, and I just love it.
I never in a million years thought I’d be writing a healthy living blog. Heck, I didn’t even understand the concept of a blog up until a couple years ago! It wasn’t until a friend directed me to Peanut Butter Fingers that my eyes were opened to the healthy living blog world. I decided I was going to start my own, and I haven’t looked back once.
Needless to say, I’ll be around for awhile! Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement along the way!
