in local spotlight

yo!

since i posted earlier today, i won’t bore you with another long, rambling post. instead, i want to focus on a couple lovely utah ladies! as you might know, i like to feature utah bloggers every so often. i love reading all blogs, but there is something about local blogs that really floats my boat. of course, you don’t have to be a local to enjoy these blogs. check them out!

the hungry runner girl.

tell us about your blog:  A blog dedicated to RUNNING, eating, fitness, daily randomness and more re-fueling.

how long have you been blogging?  I have been blogging for 13 months.

name & location: My name is Shah’ada – I’m an Egyptian American with a rockin’ cool name. I currently live in Logan.

tell us about your blog:  My blog chronicles my physical, emotional and mental journey from an unhappy, obese 20 something to a 26 year old marathoner who fully embraces life. I blog less about actually losing weight and more about my journey of maintaining what I’ve lost, what keeps me happy, and how I stay sane :)

how long have you been blogging?  I’ve been blogging for 7 months now.

what are two NOT TO BE MISSED posts of yours?

You know I gotta comment on my girl, Janae! Hey Janae!

WHat a rockstar she is! I love her 5 things she can’t live without, some of the ones she mentioned are mine too!

i am guessing you mean shah’ada’s things.. although maybe you meant janae’s, but my bet is shah’ada’s!

Missy November 15, 2011 at 9:06 am

I love the local bloggers – always neat to check out a new blog.

I knew you’d have a little bit of a different attitude this week on football, and of course any reason to have a party :)
And WIN they did! They rather stomped them. I hope they’re getting sized for their Superbowl rings, ha ha!

Thanks for the spotlights! :) Love your blog…I haven’t commented recently. I kind of like hiding in the bushes….creepy? naaaaaahhhhh. Anyway, I had a questions. I have not done a search so forgive me if you have already covered this but what does your blogging schedule look like? I have tried blogging but something gets in the way and I end up stopping. :( I suck I guess. Have any tips?

Janetha November 15, 2011 at 11:08 am

Hey lady! Always love to hear from you. I typically blog every evening Monday through Thursday, then in the early afternoon on Friday, then *sometimes* will post on the weekend, depending on what I am up to. Sometimes I post 1-2 times over the weekend, sometimes not at all! I rarely (Almost never!) post more than once a day. Also, if I am busy and don’t have time to post or don’t have anything to say, I don’t worry about missing a day. I used to, but honestly.. life comes before blogging and it’s not worth stressing over!

kathleen @ the daily crumb November 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

i’m loving this posts… and of course hungry runner girl :)

still am trying to get over your love of the packers!

Janetha November 15, 2011 at 12:30 pm

you mean my husband’s love? haha. i love the packers through marriage! i don’t even like football!

Annette@EnjoyYourHealthyLife November 15, 2011 at 1:00 pm

NICE. So sad I moved and can’t be featured, but I sure do love the Utahns!! :)

Errign November 15, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I love that you feature local blogs…and probably am a bit jealous that you’ve got other bloggers around you to feature. I do love New Hampshire, but it’s not known for it’s bloggers, haha.
