My blog is still so new. I'm learning every day how to be a better blogger. It can't all be ranting and making fun of people, I know that. That would be BORING. So I am following the lead of some blogs I admire and studying the craft of blogging. It is a work in progress and I hope you all are willing to bear with me while I go on and on in a self-deprecating way about nothing that really matters to anyone. Shit. I'll stop now and get on with the post.
Three Things Thursday! brought to you by MILF Runner :)
1. I LOVE THE IDEA OF OATMEAL, but I thought oatmeal was supposed to be more creamy and gloppy than stringy and sinewy. At first it just looked runny, but then it all stringed up on me. Maybe it was the flaxseed meal? It reminded me of EWCM in a very unappetizing way (I don't suppose there could be an "appetizing way") – but I still ate it.
*Include food pictures as much as possible – extra points for oatmeal.*
2. I WENT FOR A LONG WALK IN THE WOODS YESTERDAY. It could have been called a hike, but I wore my running shoes because I was pretending that it might turn into a trail run except I had on my jeans and regular bra so there was no way running was going to happen. Which is good because I'm not supposed to be running right now. And not because I have a concussion. I took some bloggy iPhone pictures of the experience to share because that's what good bloggers do and I aim to be a good blogger –
I got dressed!!!!
*Every workout blogged must include photo shot looking down at feet.*
*And it helps to include an ass shot – unless you have a heinous ass.*
3. MILF RUNNER HAD HER FIRST-EVER BLOGGY-MEET UP! I did sort of have one with a friend who is a blogger a couple of weeks ago when I went over to her house. It could technically have been considered a bloggy meet-up – but she didn't know I had the blog at that point! The first official blogger-meet-blogger one was the other night when I found out this girl was in town and bored and game to come over to my house. We hung out and ate tamales and truffles. As is my MO, I couldn't follow all of the rules. No pictures and no froyo.
*Always photograph bloggy meet-ups – preferably with froyo."
How about you? Do you do bloggy meet-ups? With or without froyo?
Do you like oatmeal? How about nut butter? Chia?
Have you ever gone through a period where you were not supposed to run? Was it hard for you to take the time off?
*Ask your readers questions to foster engagement.*
