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.*

Just found your blog, and you crack me up! I love all this blogger fanciness ;)ReplyDelete
Keeping stopping by! As I gain more experience it can only get better, RIGHT?Delete
You know we really missed out. It was freakin National FroYo DAY when I came over!! http://warminster.patch.com/articles/menchies-has-sweet-deal-for-national-fro-yo-day Free shit, and we missed it.ReplyDelete
And THAT is the biggest fucking #bloggyfail of all time :(Delete
Killing me, as usual. And guilty as charged on all of 'em. Well, maybe I'm not much of a food photographer, but done those foot shots. And trail shots. And you know I love to add my questions at the end.ReplyDelete
You don't use enough exclamation points, though. ; )
Thank you!!!! The foot shots are awesome because they make your legs look really good and no one can tell how big your feet are! And trails are pretty!!!! :)Delete
Shit! Also meant to tell you, you missed one thing, a pinnable inspirational quote image. Have you not heard of picmonkey? Re-do the shot of your ass with something like, this ass eats grass. Inspiring? Confusing? hell yes.ReplyDelete
Picmonkey???!!!!!! What is that? A website? A program? Something from your "box"?Delete
http://www.picmonkey.com/ It's the easiest form of photoshop ever. Make sure to use all the fonts available for free and inspire the crap out of people.Delete
Why in the world would you include multiple questions in different colors at the end of a post... that is just strange:) Enjoy your froyo get together, wish I could come. Also love the shoes shot. I need to start including butt shots... thanks for the idea.ReplyDelete
You are one of my FAVORITES!!!!!!! APPLE FRITTERS!!!!!!!!!! CUTE BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!Delete
If we invited you to our froyo extravaganza and it isn't too far from you, would you come?
I've been blogging since 2006 - mostly about mtn biking. When I started running in 2011 - I started reading the running blogs. Definitely a different type/style from my mtn bike friends. I never ask questions (heck - if you don't want to comment - I'm not gonna beg!) and only comment on blog posts that I find interesting.ReplyDelete
The thing I thought was really freaky was all the effort people went through to enter free (shit) giveaways and the videos (are you kidding me??) that were done for the NUUN relay team and all the jostling to get on the 'right' team. not for me. I left high school behind in 1979. As you can imagine - i'm still not very popular. ;)
VIDEOS???? I LOVE VIDEOS!! I need to make a video!
High school was so miserable when I was in it, might be kind of fun to do it NOW that I am all mature!
Damn you live in the tropics! I NEED to get over for a meet up! No oatmeal here. Ever. Never had it, except in bar form due to a free shit deal. Typically I do cupcakes on my meetups FYI.ReplyDelete
I think we could prob find some chia-chobani cupcakes for you ;-)Delete
Cracking up!! I typically cannot stand oatmeal and only eat it for running fuel. This is because as a broke individual I ate it WAY TOO MUCH and I still cannot stand it. Not running is hard, so I try and take my business to a pool or spin bike. *sigh* Good luck lady! I like the way you do blog meet ups! I have only met one other blogger [i think!?] and we went on multiple runs :) Go figure!ReplyDelete
I would meet you!Delete
Most of the bloggers I've met live in the same town/area as me. Does it count as a blogger meet-up if you're real-world friends? :) Of course, I think I read all of their blogs before I met them, so maybe I'm more of a stalker with a blogging problem than a full-on blogger.ReplyDelete
If it's a real-world friend you're in sketchy territory regarding the classification of "bloggy meet-up." That was what threw me initially. I think if there's froyo involved it doesn't matter who it is.Delete
I just noticed you have EGGS as your blog background, and I did a real-life LOL. So, you really ARE an egg, as advertised on Twitter? I think this makes you an EILF. Anyway, I don't have any bloggers here in town that I know. And even though I started blogging four years ago -- with a year-long hiatus when my dad was extremely ill -- I never did do much to promote it and connect with the blogging community until recently. So, technically, I'm kinda new at this part, too. I feel like a complete ASS now that I know some of the blogger "rules," because when I DIDN'T know them, I was totally breaking them. Not following people back. Not responding to comments. Honestly, though, I'm having issues with some of it, not digging the fact that there ARE so many rules and tricks of the trade. I like to read who I like to read, and I like to follow who I actually enjoy reading. I watched a vlog the other day of a blogger half freaking out because people were merely "liking" her FB status updates instead of sharing them. She was kinda beside herself that people don't realize it does NOTHING for her if they just give her a like. And deep down, I felt kind of like giving her a valium.ReplyDelete
Given that I've only had 10 people like my FB page and one of them subsequently UNlike it, I've realized that as long as I'M having fun it's all good. Link me to her. I could really have some fun!Delete
I haven't eaten oatmeal in a while, since we first went gluten free with my daughter last year (she wasn't supposed to have it for a few months). But Pro Tip: if you post a picture of food, don't link it to cervical mucus. SNORT.ReplyDelete
Also, how exactly do I make my butt look likes yours, and then take a picture of it?
An ass like mine: Gluten-free is a good start. Eat lots of chia and nut butter. It helps to grind your own nuts between your ass cheeks. Makes 'em really hard. And I scoff at your Pro Tip. You're probably the ONLY PERSON WHO CHECKED THAT LINK!!!!!!!Delete
I'm behind on the ass pictures. Pun not intended, but I'm leaving it anyway. haha Damn I'll never be popular. Slow AND cheesy does not make friends...ReplyDelete
Slow and cheesy makes the best kind of friends. It's all about sincerity. Many thanks for stopping by :)Delete
Wait....did I.....get tricked into....having a blogger meetup at my house?!? NOOOOO. Actually, YES. Lets do it again yo, I'll bring the cookie dough.ReplyDelete
With a butt like that I think your blog name could just be spot on...ReplyDelete
OMG I LOVE CERVICAL MUCOUS! Where'd you get your shoes?? I like your blog so the same brand of shoe would probably be perfect for me, right?!ReplyDelete
Do you have a matching color sparkly skirt? That's what would really make life work for you.Delete
No, but I have a Pinterest account, no job and yards and yards of pink tulle...Delete
