My girl The Keen Peach nominated me for this fun award and I am honored – this is the first blogger-type award I’ve received and it’ll be fun to pass on the accolades.
Part of the nomination is to fill out this supershort and fun questionnaire, so here you guys go – a bit more fun about ThisFitBlonde!
In one word, how would you like your readers to describe your blog?
Must-read (hey, a hyphenated word is still a word).
Which is your most favorite among your blog posts and why?
A lot of my posts are fun, fab, and fitness-oriented in vibe, which is exactly what I want from this blog (and for you, my readers!). But I wrote a piece back in August 2014 about body image and what it feels like to work in an industry focused so much on bodies, weight, and perfection – and I still think it has a lot of value.
What inspires most of your blog posts?
My own professional life as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor is the best motivating force for me to keep writing, but I am also inspired by current events (hello, red carpet posts!) and other bloggers (my Weekend Roundup entries).
What do you aspire to accomplish this year?
This is going to be a big year for me – I’m getting married, considering a big move, and working on building ThisFitBlonde into a more comprehensive brand.
What do you aspire to learn this year?
I need to learn more about blogging as a profession and industry rather than just a hobby, and I am taking an advanced prenatal fitness certification course to deepen my knowledge of working with pregnant women in a gym setting.
What is your favorite book? Why?
Even though I think she’s a crazy person in real life, Kristin Armstrong’s Mile Markers is a powerful, motivating reminder of why it is important for us women to keep running – no matter what life brings.
What is the most courageous thing you have ever done?
Move from Chicago to L.A. at age 16 to start college early. Oh, and I jumped out of a plane once.
If you could be a superhero, what would be your super power?
To be able to fly, because then I could travel anywhere I wanted for free.
Who is your female role model?
And that’s it from me! Now comes the time to nominate other bloggers. For those of you reading on from other blogs, here’s how you “pay it forward” with the sisterhood:
- thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
- put the award logo on your blog
- answer the ten questions sent to you (the same questions above)
- nominate seven blogs
