The Surprising Reason I Love Yoga

Quick side note/favor: A few people have asked me for blogs and other online resources that explain and provide recipes for special dietary needs like gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, etc. I’m going to put together a post, but I’d LOVE your help! Even if you don’t have allergies or special needs, what are your favorite places […]

Why I Want to Be Fitfluential

I love that word: It’s the brainchild of two of my favorite bloggers — Kelly Olexa and Jennifer Edwards — and the company, Fitfluential, is a brand new project designed to help bloggers and brands connect in an amazing new way. It’s no secret that I’m passionate about building community, whether at work (Growing Bolder; […]

Nearly 400 people responded and the information shared here is part of an ongoing series called “Bloggers in Depth.” The results are available for download here and I invite […]

Less Wizard, More Dorothy

It struck me while preaching to my Fitbloggin’ friends that you should create then refine, revamp, improve and update a blogging mission statement … it’s been a while since I really checked in to see if I’m true to my own. And if not, how can I change it for the better? That, coupled with […]
