I’ve been blogging for 6 (really? 6?) years. Over that time, my blog has evolved from ramblings about each and every run I did in preparation for the Marine Corps Marathon to more about my adventures with racing, traveling, and beer. Oh, yes, I’m all about the beer.
I love journaling about my running (it means Beer Geek doesn’t have to listen to it all) and would likely continue even if I was just talking to myself. But my readers make this crazy blog what it is. You have cheered me on through my crazy schemes, held me accountable to my plans, propped me up when I’m feeling down, given me great suggestions when I’m stumped by some problem…
Some of you have even become close real life friends. While I’m not surprised I made friends here (one of my closest IRL friends I met online in a group where we were discussing if we even wanted kids and now we both have 13 year olds!), I didn’t realize how many people here I would truly call friend.
So, to thank you all, I’m joining up with Kristy from Runaway Bridal Planner to host a giveaway hop to thank our readers! Giveaway starts November 3rd.
If you are a blogger, there is a sign up below to join us. It’s a great way to reach new readers (and a great way to find new blogs yourself.) If you don’t blog, stay tuned for the giveaway. So many cool blogs, so many cool things being given away. I’ll be giving away something “blingy”, because when it’s not about the beer, it’s about the bling!
While you are here, I’d love to hear what you’d like me to talk about more. Recipes? Training tips or plans? Crazy cat antics? (she fell behind the dryer the other night and I had to climb back there to get her out) And what do you want to hear less about? (If you say beer, I’m sorry, that’s not going to happen.)
