You’ve probably noticed the FitBloggin’12 button in my left sidebar.
It’s been hanging out with all my other ‘Events and Associates’ since January, when I bought my early bird ticket to attend the biggest annual fitness bloggers conference in North America. At the time, I had no idea how I would finance my trip, but knew that I desperately wanted to attend to learn more about the world of fitness blogging and to meet some of the fabulous friends I’ve made online.
So I reached out to a colleague I met at FHBC to see if her company would be interested in sponsoring my attendance at the conference. You never know unless you ask, right?
Imagine my delight when they said yes! (You can’t believe how hard I’m resisting adding extra exclamation marks…)
This girl’s going to FitBloggin’12 thanks to Gaiam!
“Gaiam is a lifestyle media company that focuses on conscious solutions for personal transformation. We offer the resources you need to achieve self-growth, live a healthy lifestyle or to positively transform your life. Our personal growth media empowers you to create your own personal development path toward the life transformation you seek.”
Their mission statement is perfectly aligned with mine and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to write for their blog readers. In fact, I’ve already written a post for them; Can Knitting Give You a Runner’s High?
Thanks so much to Kirsten and Valerie for making this happen! I look forward to working with you both and am excited to be representing Gaiam at FitBloggin’12!
