Blog Crushing in Baltimore

It’s the squeals in the hallway. Those are the ones that really get me. The shrieks of delight from people who have been longtime blogging friends (or “blends”) but have never met in person and THIS.IS.THAT.DAY. I know the feeling, because for the second year in a row, I experienced it at Fitbloggin. I am […]

Branding: Not Just for the Big Dogs (Fitbloggin’ 2011) This morning, I was privileged to join hundreds of bloggers at the second annual Fitbloggin’ Health and Fitness Bloggers Conference in Baltimore, MD. Along with Jess Milcetich (, I gave a 75-minute presentation on branding and using social media to become a superstar. We know that […]


This weekend I am thrilled to attend and speak at Fitbloggin’ 2011, a conference for health and fitness bloggers.

Guest Post: I Wear Your Shirt’s Jason Sadler

A while back, I was an invited guest at a social media event (moi? I know!) and, not for the first time, found myself surrounded by people much smarter, more successful and clever than I. In fact, I probably blew my VIP status when I eagerly raised my hand at the luncheon’s keynote event to […]

Endeavour: The Launch

It’s been a long journey…from Days 1 and 2 of the #NASATweetup (meeting 140 others on Twitter! Learning about how cool space travel is!) when we came OHSOCLOSE to launch, to Days 3 and 4 (which I’ll call Tweetup 2.0). But in the end… One of the most amazing adventures I’ll ever have. Take 2 […]

#Fitblog & Fitbloggin’ Flash Mob: Come Be Part of It!

#Fitblog PLANKS: Week 1 Details

At the gym, I can lift heavy weights. I can do push-ups. I can do bench presses and I can do crunches ’til the cows come home. But I can’t for the life of me hold a proper plank position for more than a few seconds. I try, I really, really do. But as my […]

Got My Herrrr Did and I Flew (Detox Update, Too!

Did you see me fly? (It was more like flail, but my pals Meghann and Kelly got some shots of me that didn’t look like I was about to incur a concussion): I’m the aerial silks ninja in all black. Can you see me? There will be a full, embarrassing video on soon, and […]

Five for Friday

Later today, I’m going somewhere I don’t often go: the hair salon. In fact, the last time that I went, it was for my super fancy schmancy makeover that made the newspaper. Awww, shucks. I miss those extensions. But my darling husband either wanted to give me a treat OR wanted me to get rid […]
