Last night the blog community was anxiously awaiting a single email. No, nothing from a publicist with a new product for them to write about and giveaway. This time, an invitation to giveaway their knowledge, tips, advice and insight for growing the smallest of blogs into centers of influence. Last night, Roni Noone, the woman behind Fitbloggin and “too many blogs to list here,” as she is known to say, released the speaker list for the 2012 Fitbloggin’.
This is the third annual Fitbloggin’, a conference for bloggers focused in the health, fitness, and wellness niche. Held each year in Baltimore, bloggers come from across the nation, and even abroad, to meet up with their online colleagues and friends, network with influential writers and advertisers, and simply have a really good time away from it all.
DietsInReview.com’s director of publishing, Brandi Koskie, was named as a speaker, as well as more than 20 others. Brandi will be hosting a 45-minute presentation on the event’s second day called “Get Down to Business: Drive More Traffic Through SEO,” and will help introduce some simple and effective tactics that bloggers can use to bring more readers to their sites.
We are attending FitBloggin’ 11, and we want to take you with us! Well, at least one of you.
It’s a really intimate and engaging conference for bloggers who are focused on fitness, health, and of course networking and learning!
Thanks to Roni at FitBloggin’, we’ve got one conference ticket to giveaway. One blogger will attend for free! Respond in the comments below why you really HAVE TO, WANT TO, NEED TO go to FitBloggin’ 11, and why this ticket, valued at $250, should be in your hands.
Simple as that!
One winner will be drawn at random on March 1, 2011 and notified at that time. (more…)
We’re proud to announce that our resident yoga expert, Heather Ashare, will be hosting a yoga for bloggers session at the FitBloggin’ ’10 conference. The conference is a gathering of fitness and wellness bloggers from around the country, and this hour-long session will be just what they need to kick-off a weekend of learning and networking.
If you’re attending the conference, you can expect:
A fun and energetic yoga class specifically designed for bloggers and writers whose passion for sharing their expertise as health advocates finds them sitting behind computers for way too long. With a focus on posture, shoulder alignment, and lower back strength, the class will raise heart rates, stretch hamstrings and lighten the mind. All levels are welcome. (more…)
Roni from RonisWeigh is our guest blogger for January. You’ll recall she recently took runner-up for Best Diet Blog and her site GreenLiteBites won Best Healthy Recipe site category in our first Diet Site Awards. On her sites she shares her experiences with weight loss and maintaing a healthy life with her family.
Being someone who writes about weight loss and healthy eating for a living, I cringe when I feel the need to to use the word ‘lifestyle‘. It’s fast becoming an over-used, over-marketed term to describe how to successfully lose weight.
I know this. Yet, every time I need to describe the changes that must happen for one to successfully lose, I can’t fight it. The word somehow finds it way to the paper. And as I proofread my own articles I visualize all of the eye rolling that will happen when it gets read.
Don’t deny it. You’ve done the pre-mentioned *eye roll*. Thinking to yourself “Ugh here’s that LIFESTYLE thing again.” But you don’t want to change. You like to go out with friends, order pizza for the family on a Friday night, and enjoy popcorn with butter at the movies. You also loathe the gym and have no time to exercise anyway. You LIKE your lifestyle. It fits you… probably better then your jeans. (more…)
