The Evolution of this Blog

I was curious what I was up to around this time last year, and that's when I realized it was right around the time when I was coming off of my injury. I DNS'd Cast a Shadow and had started to build my mileage up, slowly, so that I could run the Half at the Hamptons.

I then took a peek at 2013 and what I was doing. I noticed that this blog has changed a lot. I had some product reviews (I don't do those anymore) and random posts just to fill up my little space on the internet.

Where else would you find something like this but my blog?

All of that is fine, but that isn't how I handle my blog anymore. 

My blog has always been for me. There were times when I was a part of Ambassador programs and I did some posts through those avenues (technically, I am still a part of these groups but I do not do anything through them anymore). Companies have stopped contacting me for product reviews, for the most part, and that's fine with me. Unless you are offering me a product that I actually use - I'm not going to review it.

 When you have nothing to say, sometimes this is all you can do

I also realized that sometimes, I just don't have anything to say. Last year with Ironman training, this blog basically became my training log. I did have a few random posts sprinkled throughout here and there, but the majority of posts were Ironman training recaps and race recaps.

This also means that I have lost some readers. That's alright too. As I said, this blog has always been for me. I still like my little space on the internet, and I hope that some of you still do too!

Evolution, or change, isn't always a bad thing. And it is a natural part of life. I'm sure glad that I am not the same person that I was 5 or 10 years ago - and I can say the same thing about this blog.


  1. Kudos to you for doing what feels right for you!

  2. Your blog is a direct extension of your life (in terms of triathlon, running, you name it), so it makes a lot of posts fall under a certain topic. All you can do is keep doing you and keep writing--I'll still be here! :)

  3. It is all about doing what makes you happy with your blog.
