This week’s questions:

What is the name of your blog?  How long have you been blogging?  Simple Delights is the name of my blog.  I have been blogging here for about 2 months.  I blogged once per week (What to Eat Wednesday) for Pure Barre Dallas in 2013 and towards the end of the year decided to blog more.  And that’s when I created Simple Delights.

Why do you blog?  I am a nutrition professional who loves to write so the combo is perfect for blogging.  I love to help others find simple ways to live healthy!  Blogging also keeps me accountable- to practice what I preach, so to speak.

What is the first blog you ever followed?  This is a tough one because I know I followed blogs years ago, but I do not remember any of the names.  So, I will have to go with Lauren Conrad’s blog.  I wanted to be more stylish in 2011 or 2012 so started following her blog.

What is your favorite post you wrote in 2013?  Since I have not been blogging long at Simple Delights, I will say my first post.  It symbolizes the start of my blogging journey and I could not be more excited about it.  I am thrilled to finally be writing regularly and connecting with others through nutrition, fitness, healthy living, and writing.

What are your blogging goals for 2014?  In addition to blogging, I would like to expand into writing for online publications.  I just wrote for an online newsletter for dietitians and hope to contribute to a few others this year.  My specific goal is to get published at least 5 times this year.  Another goal of mine is to grow Simple Delights and learn innovative ways to reach other readers.  My specific goal in this realm is to reach 100 followers by the end of the year.

Top 3 favorite blogs to follow.  I still really like following Lauren Conrad’s blog so that is on my list.  Neely at A Complete Waste of Makeup has been influential in helping me start my blog so I still follow her and enjoy reading her posts.  Lastly, a recent and fun blog I have found is Oh Mrs. Tucker.  I love her goofiness!
