Read Some New Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers

November 7, 2008 · 9 comments

Lisa from Iowa Avenue wrote a great post this week called The Joy of Blogging where she talked about how important it is for us to find, read and reward via comments (and linking!) those bloggers out there who are writing great content for the sheer love of it, whether the traffic is there or not. As she says,

I just joined a new project, sponsored by Chuck Westbrook, which is designed to highlight under appreciated blogs and the bloggers they represent.

It’s a place to read a blog that’s not necessarily health related. It’s affords and provides me a chance to give a fellow blogger a different point of view; to show support for these bloggers by providing feedback via comments; and I’m sure I’ll learn something new as well as have a great read. If you’re interested in participating, just click the link above.

Keeping in the spirit of focusing on Weight Loss Blogs and other health and fitness related blogs, Lisa chose to select 13 Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers that she recently read and enjoyed, and asked that her readers visit each blog and post a comment on one or more posts.

I have done just that (well, not on my own post) and now I will go one step further and link to the same list that Lisa did, and I too ask my readers to take a look and participate. Perhaps you can link to them too or even start your own list.

Show some love for these bloggers:

1. Lessons from Other Successful Losers

2. Wordless Wednesday: Dare to be different

3. Yes we can!

4. To Run Or Not To Run

5. What are You Thinking When You Eat?

6. Eat Whatever You Want And NEVER Gain A Pound

7. The Sweet Smell of Wet, Stinky Gym Clothes

8. A new test may help diagnose the controversial fibromyalgia.

9. Time For A Change

10. How to Achieve Picture Perfect Shots via Digital Photography

11. Values & Respect

12. What Happened to My Diet?

13. French lentils and brown onions with fried eggs

No matter what you do, the blogosphere will be better for it.

Wow, thanks for passing on the blog love. I really don’t think there is enough spreading to the blog love magic, and the power of making comments can not be underestimated.

I’ll give all the credit to you - lets remember to do it more too!

That is what blogging is about! I feel like we are all family here and the support is great! I like link number 1 “Lessons from Other Successful Losers” good stuff!

Yep, that is why I am still in this community - the support. By the way, do you know your blog has been hosed all day? Looks like you tried to make a forum or something but it took over your home page?

You have a great site here and I appreciate the link back. The power of information from this group can get anyone back on track to be healthy. Thanks

Thanks Tom - I appreciate you stopping by. Come by again!

Wow! Some really nice blogs here. I didn’t know how big is the health blogosphere!! It’s good news that so many poeple are concerned with their well being. Perhaps together we can spread the word about a healthy lifestyle.

Spread the word from hither and yon. And tell them John sent you! ;-)

This is a great idea! I’m going to work on putting together a list like this. No better way to spread the word.

Wow, I didn’t know I even made the list, but I’m loving the love! Thanks so much and I’ll return the favor.
