I Started A Blog in 2009

Blogging, Health and wellness, Inspiration, Lifestyle, My Why

Were you one of those people too? Or was it just me – One of my favorite weekend activities when I was in college was to cook myself dinner, from Trader Joe’s of course, and then sit down and read blogs for hours.

Saturday morning I would wake up, drink my coffee, go on a long run, come home, Cook myself breakfast,and again, read blogs for hours. My favorite blogs to read at the time were carrotsncake, KathEats, peanut butter fingers, and Run Eat Repeat. I thought to myself one day, hey, I can do this too. So it began, I started a blog, back in 2009, the beginning of my senior year in college.

I think I blogged for about a week. Why is photography so hard? I mean, photography is hard for me now and we have top of line cameras on our phones. I don’t know how to fill a photo, I don’t know where the light should shine, and lord help me with my selfie game.

I documented my food and running, that’s what all these running blogs were doing and who doesn’t want to know what I ate for breakfast 7 days a week. I would post on my free wordpress site with absolutely no bells and whistles and then compare myself to a professionally built website from bloggers that had been in the game for a few years. I had no idea what it took to design a blog, create content, gain a following. I just thought it was fun. Until five days in and then it wasn’t.

But here we are, my 5th or 6th attempt since that day in 2009, starting another blog. Every time I decide blogging isn’t for me, something draws me back, and let me tell you, it’s not because I’m an expert with words. 

I have big plans for this platform. I want to share my experiences with running, weightlifting, CrossFit, hormones, stress, the struggles, the highlights, the product reviews, and how I got here. I want to share all of my knowledge, I want this to be a place where women feel safe, heard, understood. 

I know, we all have big plans, and we all know life happens. Let’s see where it this takes us, shall we?
