Local Social Media Networks
Anyone else getting a slow start this morning? Despite my tiredness last night, I just couldn’t fall asleep! So, I slept in pretty late this morning…about 30 minutes before my first client.
It’s definitely a double cup kind of morning
I also woke up without an appetite, which is probably because of
our chocolate covered animal cracker movie snack our protein-packed dinner last night, so I just grabbed a banana on my way to training.
I love that banana case! It really helps not to bruise the banana
Local Networking through Social Media
This is my last “take away” post from the Healthy Living Summit! Does that make you happy or sad? Don’t answer that. Instead, answer the thought provoking questions I’ll ask you at the end of this post to make sure you’re paying attention 😉
Other take aways on the HLS presentations include:
One of the presentations given at the Healthy Living Summit was all about connections. Mainly, it was about connecting with other bloggers and blog readers who live in your area as a way to make new friends. Theodora, Ashley, and Cynthia spoke on this topic. Additionally, three live in New York, where bloggers are plentiful.
Here is Normal, healthy living bloggers are far and few between. One major reason is well, because instead of living in a city of 900,000, it’s a city of 100,000. Granted there are a few bloggers, like the lovely Lindsay and Christine, but in order to make more friends with other like-minded people in the area, I turn to additional social media outlets.
Some of the examples the panelists provided for the outlets included:
I just recently signed up for Daily Mile, but haven’t gotten too much exposure yet.
However, the media that’s helping me meet the most fitness/health minded friends is facebook! There’s a group called FitFace that now it has more than 100 members! I’m just getting my feet wet with it, but so far, it’s such a cool way to share workouts, fitness inspiration, and stories with other “fit facers”
If you don’t belong to a facebook group already, I’d suggest starting your own in order to connect with health-minded friends!
On that note, it’s time to get Niko’s fit on – we’re heading out for a long walk. Then I’m off to see my chiropractor/holistic doc to refill on my vitamins and get adjusted from after my half marathon (3 weeks ago…oops!)
What social media networks do you belong to? Are any of them local?
Have you ever met up with anyone you’ve met through a social media connection? I met up with Lindsay and Christine for a run once, as well as a few chicago bloggers, and obviously at the HLS I LOVE SOCIAL MEDIA!!!
See ya in the afternoon!
