2016/2017 tag

Well, well, well.. here we are again.. with another TAG! I don’t know about the rest of you bloggers but I have noticed these tags are starting to take over the wordpress world and I don’t know how any us will survive if they start controlling our brains and making us type out many words and many numbers. Rumor has it, the awards have been jealous of the tags and I don’t blame them.. they are slowly being pushed to the side and forgotten about. I won’t let those awards go unnoticed, if no one has told you awards, I love you 🙂 lol 

That was a just a small amount of mediocre comedy, don’t judge me, it was the best I could do on a Saturday. If you are judging me, you probably ended up laughing anyways and if you didn’t laugh, well.. this kind of comedy wasn’t for you 🙂 Thank you PoojaG for making me spend my weekends doing another post (I was going to share my workout today, but since she wants me working overtime on this wordpress with these tags, pft I might not) LOL. Don’t check out her blog unless you wanted to be corrupted by tags! hahaha.

1. Mention Creator of tag
Thank you to David for creating this tag!
 
2. Use the image in the article
 

3. Mention blogger(s) who have chosen you

Questions for me to answer:

    • What made you start blogging, and how long have you been?

    I started blogging when I was in my last semester of college – my professor had his class at the time do a blog and I wasn’t in his class but I was interested in doing the project (he was my biomechanics professor – exercise science related) and since him and I grew to be close when it came to my career goals and becoming a personal trainer, he thought it would be an awesome idea for me to start blogging because he knew I could offer so much doing so. I have been doing it since Dec. 2015. 

    • What is your dream career and why? My dream career is to be a personal trainer and nutritional coach/ wellness coach. Among those two things, I also hope to become a paid fitness/health blogger for a magazine or a huge fitness company. It would be a perk to eventually own a gym and also become a motivational speaker about fitness/health. There is so much to offer in my field, I even gave thought in perhaps becoming a strength and conditioning coach since I have done that and enjoyed working with college athletes. If I can become a fitness mogul and be some kind of difference in this field- THAT WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE DREAM. ❤
    • Where is your favourite travel destination, and why? This is a good question, I haven’t traveled nearly everywhere I would like to travel, but from the places I have visited, I enjoyed going to Colorado ( I resided here for awhile) and I enjoyed Pittsburgh (I dated someone from here) – those two places were really unique and different than where I reside now. 
    • What is your number one piece of advice to new bloggers? I would tell new bloggers to blog and don’t be afraid of what others may think of your writing because there is ALWAYS someone who cares about something you write about. Trust me when I say this. 
    • If you could go anywhere right now where would it be, and why? I would go to a bigger city, perhaps warmer place. 
    • Tell us about your worst travel experience. Probably driving from Colorado to Ohio or vice versa with my mom and siblings, my mom gets too intense during long trips. LOL. 

Questions for my nominees:

  1. Do you believe in giving people “second chances”?
  2. What was your favorite childhood cartoon or show you enjoyed watching?
  3. Favorite board game?
  4. Do you prefer hamburgers or hotdogs?
  5. Do you cry at sappy movies?
  6. One thing you love about yourself?

Hope all of you nominated will enjoy my questions and answers!

blogger-recognition-award-badge.jpg

I created this blog in 2015 in order to talk about fitness/health and how it relates to my life and then decided to take it one notch further and made it more of a informative blog along with some highly debatable topics to get people talking about it. I hope in the near future to integrate more things to this blog and make it my own personal website that continues to fill people’s lives with motivation and some type of inspiration.

My advice to new bloggers would be…

  1. Expand, read other things outside of your own niche. This is the best way to meet people and to learn.
  2. Don’t write to make money, write to share something, people will appreciate it more.

Here are the 15 bloggers that I have nominated:
