Yeah, whatever Mr. Social Media Networking man - at least I live in Colorado!!! We're too busy in Colorado enjoying being the fittest state in the nation to worry about how many points we have on Klout!
Teasing aside, I definitely do need to make some changes to the blog, but I'm not sure where to even start, so I'll let this stuff absorb some and then start flooding Jason's inbox with countless questions...since, you know, he's the already done it guy. When I started my blog 2 1/2 years ago, it was solely for the purpose of my then-trainer and I to dissect my thoughts and peel back the layers to my fitness. Later, when the trainer was long gone, people started finding my blog and it became a place where I just wanted to share my running journey with everyone...and make some great friendships and laugh along the way. I still want that, but now I think I need to implement some changes. Hopefully for the better. Fingers crossed I don't go manic.
But aside from all the info at the conference, I was able to meet up with some awesome bloggers, who I now consider all friends. ...or as Jason calls us, the Sweathogs - I'll try to sum up the best part of the weekend in bullets, and pictures:
- Friday afternoon was filled with blogging topics Jill knew nothing about!
- All that learning, a well-deserved a trip to the hotel bar was in order....
- Saturday was more blogging topics Jill knows nothing about.
- The best part of the day was lunch, of course.

Y'all knew it was gray and white day, didn't you?
All in all, it was an excellent weekend (well, aside from my intercostal muscle tear - which, if you've ever had one you know how much agony I'm currently in...the heel has nothing on this sucker)! I learned a lot and formed some amazing friendships with lasting memories.
In the meantime,
Why do YOU blog? Or are you in need of some changes, any changes? Do you care about your stat numbers and traffic? I'd love to hear what your blog means to you.
Until later....run strong, friends! Me, I'll be icing my back for the next few days so run a few miles for me.
