A Newbie Sparker - I Can't Believe I'm Starting Another Blog

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

I just wanted to get healthy again, or so that's what I told hubby when he saw me messing around here last night setting up my Sparks page. You see, I just wanted to get healthy again (I used to be VERY healthy once upon a time) and just wanted to be able to track my progress and have some accountability. But NOOO!

You SparkPeople reeled me in by asking me to create a profile page and join a group and play around with all of your little widgets and cool apps and before I knew it, I am blogging - AGAIN! You see, I already have a blog site and a very successful one at that.

My other blog has literally consumed most of my free time. When I'm not working in serving my clients or taking care of my family or spending some time taking care of myself, I am blogging. I have become obsessed with blogging. Fortunately for me, my blogging has helped increase my business, which is the whole reason I started blogging back in August 2008.

But you see, I'm not looking to increase my business here, I just wanted to get healthy. Who knows, maybe by blogging about my efforts, I will get healthy. I don't know, but what I do know is that blogging is a strange phenomena. Things we never thought possible suddenly become reality when we blog about it.

I've got a long way to go to get healthy, maybe blogging will get me there. It may even be really fun too (hmmm...). Stranger things have happened.

    Welcome to Spark and the Dog Lovers Team!
    I only recently started blogging and it's really helped me make some progress. I've a ways to go yet, but I'll get there. You will too!

    Nascar Chick - AMEN! And that is why I joined Sparks - accountability. It's been my personal experience that when I hold myself accountable to my goals, I am much more successful.

    Snarkmeister - OY VEY! I thought I had it bad! While I don't do the whole FB/Twitter thing (that's a whole other post), I do have a business blog on ActiveRain and have syndicated it on numerous blog syndication sites. The link for my other blog is:


    I'm a Mortgage Loan Originator and ActiveRain is the BIGGEST real estate/lending related social media site.

    Curious to know too what your outside blogs are.

    First of all, welcome to Spark!

    Next, about blogging... it really can help us in ways we never expect! What I find about blogging on here, is that it creates a certain level of accountability. That helps me stay on track because I don't want to let myself or my fellow Sparkers that read my blogs down.

    Good Luck reaching your goals!!!

    Oh boy, I definitely feel your pain. I'm a web developer, so I'm online all the time, and I've got - lemme see now - three, no, FOUR blogs. Ay carumba. Plus Facebook and Twitter. It's too much to keep up with, especially with two middle schoolers, a hubby, a cat and a snake all in the house, expecting to be fed and attention'ed on a regular basis. LOL

    Anyway, good for you for doing something positive for yourself! Also, I'm curious - what is your (outside) blog?
