And on Sunday, for 1 hour, this blog was gone. Not gone as in deleted (almost though), but gone as in made private... invite only... and the only person I had invited was myself (testing it).
And within this hour I got 1 text and 3 emails from followers... wondering why they couldn't find my blog or needed to be invited. I mean, I have barely published a post in like a week, who would really notice that I was gone. Seriously, folks... I have been averaging many hits a day (when I actually post something new), but comments... seriously lacking. Like averaging like 2 - BOO!
But those 4 people made me realize... I am read. I was missed. And then I had a change of heart (obviously, right... you can see me know). Why do I even write this blog? For others? For me?
Sure, I hope I motivate you, make you laugh, cry... even gross you out sometimes (wait for the I'm only down to 7 toe nails post). More importantly, this blog helps hold me accountable to my training, to my weight loss, and to the idea that I can do anything that I put my heart into.
And for the haters out there... YES, I have haters (I know, strange, right? Who wouldn't love me): If you are tired of reading about my daily runs, then don't read my blog. If you don't like my opinion or what I have to say, then kindly (I know your momma taught you manners) tell me your opinion.
The blog community helped me TREMENDOUSLY with my weight loss (down 98lbs now). I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and support... and now as I attempt even greater feats (IM anyone?) I have decided, no more filters, I am going to be ME.
I hope you stick around, if not... Ba bye!
