I think it would be really cool to be a professional weight loss blogger. To have thousands of readers, who people look up to. To get asked to speak at conferences, go on free trips, review free stuff. I can barely post once a week, who am I kidding, that probably is never going to happen.
I look at some of the bloggers out there: Jen, Roni, Nicole. I would love to make income from my blog. That is some serious work though! I went to LA on the EA Active Sports Retreat with Amy over at MomSpark, and tons of other mom bloggers who make a living at blogging. Very inspiring. I guess that’s where I knew that was even possible. They work hard, but have lots of perks. Anyway, Amy posted this blog the other day. Check out how much work she actually does. It’s a full time job. These bloggers usually post EVERY day.
I get down on myself that I’m not successful enough, not good enough to have a large following. (Don’t get me wrong, I love my readers!) It kinda feels like a popularity contest, being in high school you know? I feel like the bank geek, and I want to be the popular girl. Come on, you know you wanted to be too! LOL
Just my thoughts. I can’t be what I’m not. I can’t write a long entry every day. I just do what I can, and hope people like it and hope I can motivate.
I have been blogging for 12 years. TWELVE! Can you believe it? I was 24 when I started. All my entries are here too. It’s nice to look back at them and see what I was doing 10 years ago.
My favourite part of my blogging, is reading back about my mom. My feelings, what she was going through when she was really sick and memories I had forgotten. I’m glad I have it documented.
Things are going well weight loss wise. Week 6 post op today. Down 49.1 pounds in 8 weeks. YAY. I’m a happy girl.
