It´s exciting and I feel honored that so many people follow my blog. We are 2000! Thanks to everyone following this blog. If you think about it, millions of towns around the world have less population! :D
As I owe you this milestone, I thought a Q&A post would be a good idea. Well, here are your questions and my answers.
Anytime, I could eat durums, pizza, tortilla, squids or crabs.
Thanks for asking, my friend! I´ve been good, working, studying, meeting new people…
I´ve had upside downs like everyone else, but I don´t complain.
Well, I work from home and a regular day looks like this:
I wake up, have breakfast and feed my pets. Then we go for a walk. Back at home, I check the emails, client´s workouts and meals, and your blogs.
I take a break, lift some weights and practice some yoga postures trying to meditate and relax. After that, I have what I call the second breakfast and a shower.
Some more work until lunch time, it depends on the day: client´s questions, new workouts, or maybe taking new videos, photoshop, writing a post… I don´t get bored.
After lunch, I love to take a nap. I wake up about 4 pm ready to answer more questions, emails, and messages. Usually, I have time to read some more blogs.
I finish about 7 pm. I go for another walk with my dog, and later I hang out with friends.
In Spain, we use to have dinner very late, 10 or 11 pm. Most of the times these friends meetings turn into dinners.
I started an online business because I found a great way to train online, Evernote. I think you already know something about it :D
I read somewhere that blogging was a good way to get traffic so, I decided to give it a try.
I thought I could write about fitness. But I had no idea what blogging´s about.
There are awards, tag post, guest post, etc. Having a blog on your website is different than being part of the blogging community. I think you know what I mean.
I was blessed with supportive, gentle, and positive bloggers from the very beginning, and I ended up loving this blog thing.
2.- How do you think you were able to attract 2000 followers?
Networking and persistence.
Awards, guest post, meet and greets… all of them are good ways to connect with other bloggers, introduce yourself to new readers, and get new followers.
Posting consistently, daily in my case, I think also helped.
3.- What have been the biggest changes to being a blogger that you have recognized since you have more followers?
I´ve realized that now I play more the host role than the guest role. I like to help others like others helped me, so it´s my pleasure to introduce new bloggers and trainers to my readers, inviting them to write or hosting the meet and greet. It makes my day every time I read a comment like “Hi, I´m a new blogger…”.
Thank you so much for your questions!
