I Love to Blog

Happy Friday, everyone!

I have come to the conclusion that I love to blog (as if I didn't already know this). I have been blogging since about 2006 on www.sparkpeople.com, but when I started this website in 2011, I never expected to have such a following! What started as a personal blog, to help keep myself accountable throughout my weight loss journey, has to turned in to so much more!

I am very blessed to have such amazing readers, and I have so much fun reading everyone's comments, facebook messages and emails. I am nearing a total of 50,000 pageviews for my blog, and it wouldn't have happened without each one of you!


Since I feel it is such a gift to have so many readers, I have decided that once I reach a total of 50,000 pageviews, I am going to give away a gift to one of you! Stay tuned for more information on that!

Now, I want to hear more from YOU! Feel free to answer any or all of the following questions in the comments section below!

How did you find my blog?
How often to you find yourself reading my blog?
What do you like most about my blog?
Anything you would change about my blog?
What would you like to read more about in my blog?
Do you read other blogs?
What kind of blogs interest you?

I look forward to reading you comments! I, myself, read healthy living blogs. I love to read about fitness, nutrition and family!

  2. Hello! My name is Serena Gunter. I have been quietly eStalking you for about 8 months I think? I figure perhaps it is time to participate a bit. ;)

    How did you find my blog? I believe I found you on Spark People. I'm Carolaskan there.

    How often to you find yourself reading my blog? I read it whenever it shows p on my google reader feed.

    What do you like most about my blog? You are quite refreshingly... you. If that makes any sense. i don't feel any sense of pretense with what and how you write.

    Anything you would change about my blog? Nah.

    What would you like to read more about in my blog? I don't know, you always seem to have something interesting to say. Do you have any hobbies? I'm a crafty person and love to do all sorts of things, lately I've been doing a lot of crocheting.

    Do you read other blogs? I have a few friends personal blogs I read, but not many. I'm trying to be better about keeping up my own blog, but I have a hard time talking about myself, heh.

    What kind of blogs interest you? Crafting blogs, blogs about weight loss struggles, blogs about ferrets. Yeah, I am one of those odd ferret owning people.

    Anyway, thank you for writing what you write. I usually get a smile out of what you have to say, or at least a little perspective when you're not at your happiest. Your journey has been interesting to view from afar.

    If you're interested, my blog lives at www.Carolaskan.com

    Bye!

  6. forgot to add that I like how you show your progress: if you gained or lost, and that you are honest about how losing weight is hard... some blogs only post good results and stop a challenge if they start to gain and then don't explain themselves. You keep it real....I don't always stay on my "diet" and I don't always lose weight... sometimes I gain... and I like to see that I am not the only one that is like that! :)
