Calling all fitness & health bloggers

I've encountered some fabulous people through blogging, and have been lucky to develop enduring friendships with a few too. Blogging can be a wonderful way to meet like-minded souls, encounter new ideas or experiences and be inspired to bigger and better things in your own endeavours.

I have a small list of blogs that I read regularly. There are a variety of topics amongst them, from gardening, to decorating, to cooking, to family life, or just utter drivel that I find entertaining. But the bulk of my reading list is made up of fitness/healthy lifestyle bloggers.

It's easy to find squillions of bloggers who are located in the US and other places around the world who blog about health, exercise, nutrition and related topics. But I struggle to find many fellow Aussies with similar interests who blog regularly - apart from the many "blogs" which are nothing more than thinly disguised marketing arms for a business.

I'd really like to expand my network of fitness bloggers, so I'm putting out the call for anyone who has a real, personal blog that's even vaguely related to training, good nutrition or similar subjects, to de-lurk. If you participate in any kind of sport or fitness activity, or just have a passion for healthy living, please leave a comment. I'd love to come and check out your blog.

Oh my, I rate a mention *blushes with pleasure*.
I am going to the gym religiously, just not blogging about it. Didn't think anyone would be that interested to hear about all my aches and pains. I did arms yesterday and thought I pushed it (as much as my shoulder would permit) and was hoping that DOMS wouldn't allow me to pick up a cup today, but alas all that hurts is my back.
Just for you I'll throw in a few more posts on exercise...'cause that's the loving person I am.

Aww, thanks Deb. But I read your blog anyway, because it makes me smile. Just blog about whatever you like.

Where is everyone? I was hoping to find some new inspiration too..

Kek said...

Obviously nobody's reading - or at least nobody who wants to share their blog.

I have this theory that everyone has moved to Facebook and there are just a few diehards who stick it out here.

I'm reading, just don't have that much time to post, but I'm at my desk today.

In addition to mine that I know you already kindly read, I'm trying to be a bit more serious here.


Love your feedback.

Hi Kerryn- I know you read mine and it, at best , isn;t very informative or interesting!! I often whinge about injuries and such! I shall try to be a bit more 'out there' with my blogging cos I really love training and feel fantastic most of the time- I need to share the 'luurrrrvvvveee!!'

Long-time stalker here *waving*...My Blog started out as my journey to fitness but life got in the way...still hoping to get fit and very inspired by your Blog.(oh, and I don't do FB or Twitter, I can only cope with one thing at a time!...LOL)

I have realised in reading your blog how I am just a reader of everyone else's experience on the health and fitness and not sharing all my ups and downs. Must remedy.
