Why write a blog? I get asked this question on an almost daily basis.
Why did I decide to start this small slice of the internet back in May of 2011?
Why share aspects of my life with complete strangers?
Because otherwise I may not be here today.
I let so much weigh down on me over the years. I buried it deep below. I was hurting myself both on the inside and out.
So I decided to release.
Now this blog has evolved over the years as I have.
I don't share every single weigh in. I don't share what I eat each day.
Because life has changed. Also I was tired of getting criticized for what I eat.
But I was sitting back searching through twitter the other day and hearing more and more people complain about many blogs today - all they do is push product or host giveaways.
Yes when I read these comments I immediately think people are talking about me ... about my baby blog.
Cuhlearly not everyone is talking about me, but I take it personally.
I share on my blog what I want. I love talking about the races I have participated in and the new products that may help people improve their own training.
I thought about trying to be one of the bloggers that can write everyday, but it is too much for me.
Plus, I am boring. ;)
My day-to-day life is pretty boring: workout of some sort, lead some Weight Watchers meetings and watch some Netflix.
Woo! Now THAT is one exciting life. Right?
I realized it's okay to share the mundane occasionally ... if that is what I want to write about.
In the end, what I share on this space is up to me. If people want to read it great. If not that's okay too.
I will not please everyone, but the most important person to think about is myself.
