John is Fit Now Accepts Guest Posts

August 2, 2008

I finally got around to establishing some guidelines for guest posts and will start accepting submissions now. Guest posts are a good way for me to give you different points of view than what you normally get from me and a great opportunity for the guest poster to get some exposure to their blog, product [...]


My Weight Loss Forums

March 24, 2008

Have you checked out my weight loss forums yet? So far we have 21 registered guests and have had over 165 posts. I think forums are a nice way to interact with my readers and also a great way for my readers who don’t have blogs to share their story. So far the longest thread [...]


John’s Weight Loss Forums

February 19, 2008

One of the resources I have not found on my weight loss journey was a good, close-knit forum. I’ve probably tried them all, and for a variety of reasons I just haven’t been able to stick to one. I really feel like I am missing out by not having that added sense of community. So, [...]


Introducing Entrecard

December 29, 2007

While the vast majority of my postings will be about my weight loss journey from fat to fit I will stray occasionally to talk about things related to blogging about my weight loss journey.  If you haven’t already read 4 Reasons You Should Be Writing a Weight Loss Blog please do - it explains the importance of [...]

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

November 20, 2007

Last week I hosted a group of 5th graders (my son’s lego robotic team) to watch Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? on FOX. If you’ve never seen the show it can be quite maddening. Because of the adults. The adults on the show are usually really dumb. Last week it was Kellie Pickler, who [...]


Where In The World Are You Coming From?

November 17, 2007

Seeing Make Lard History’s A Greener World reminded me that I’ve been running Google Analytics here and that I haven’t checked it out for a little while. The last time I looked I was still 4 states short in the US and hadn’t penetrated much outside of the US and Europe. Now I’ve been visited [...]

2007 Weblog Awards Are Over

November 12, 2007

The 2007 Weblog Awards are over, and as expected I did not win.  However, I did finish in 4th place in my category of Best Medical/Health Issues Blog with 363 votes so I am pretty happy about that.  I was in last place for most of the competition but mysteriously got a ton of votes [...]


Feed Trouble

November 9, 2007

This has been a good week on the health front.  On the blog front, not so much.  What should have been a great week for me has turned very frustrating as my site has been flaky at best this week.  While it still loads fine in a browser other services that need to access it [...]
