Recently, I heard a fellow blogger mention that they have nothing to write about anymore, so they quit blogging. I’m sure many bloggers or writers, for that matter, fall into the whole writer’s block dilemma at some point or another. A lot of the time I have so many things to write about, but it’s difficult to put my words into posts that are concise and to the point. I ramble. I’d admit that proudly.
I love reading blogs. I’m sorry, but even if you are the most boring person in the world, you are interesting (to someone). I say this while knowing there are dozens of YouTube channels dedicated to watching people play video games. Let that soak in. You can type in “people playing video games” and watch, for hours, if you can tolerate, someone playing a video game. Why? I don’t know why. But, you can. To me, that is boring. But, someone else is willing to sit there and watch. I won’t even get into the Vlogger (Mom, that means video + blogger) that plays with kids toys, that’s just creepy.
My point is, you’re not boring. Just write, I mean it you want to. Write about your husband (to remind me not to get one, I kid) or about your dogs (to remind me not to get one). Write about a new recipe you nailed or failed. Write about your interaction with a stranger or how you learned to take awesome pictures without a photographer. See!
Write about how to organize your dresser. Believe me, I would read that, and that’s one of the reasons my socks are folded like little sushi rolls, and they seem to be happy now.
And then there was Priscilla, from one of my favorite blogs, Priscilla Loves to Run. Because dang it, she really does love to run. She’s definitely not boring (yeah, I need to work on my blog titles). She loves to run and swim and bike to point that, like me, she pushes past limits and no matter what a doctor says sometimes, she does what shes loves to do. But, that’s besides that point.
Priscilla and I have an interesting connection. She graduated from the same DTR program in Texas that I am currently enrolled in. We were both in the Student Dietetic Organization (at different times) and have had most of the same classmates and instructors. I literally just missed formally meeting Priscilla by a semester. It wasn’t until recently we both kept seeing each others names on Fit Approach sites and #Sweatpink that we realized how small our worlds really are. How crazy is that? Priscilla is an ace. For her recent birthday, her only request was for everyone to do a random act of kindness in her honor. How awesome is that?
So, besides the plug for you to check out >>> Priscilla Loves to Run <<<, Priscilla has also challenged me and a few other pink sweating ladies, because everyone knows ladies only sweat pink and sometimes glitter along with left over Bath & Body Works body mist, to join in on #1MillionMInutes.
“The whole Sweat Pink community is coming together to achieve one million minutes of activity this summer! As always, our goal is to inspire and encourage everyone to get moving so help us in getting your friends, family, co-workers, and everyone in between working with us this summer to achieve one million minutes of movement!”
So, all my wonderful readers I challenge you to join in. Send me your minutes. Our goal is one million minutes of moving your body. From anything to Zumba to Crossfit to running to lifting. I need you (well, your minutes)! Message me, tweet me, any way you can reach me. We are running this until August 21, so you gots time, but don’t wait until the end. That, my friend, would be brutal.
